Batman: The TellTale Series feels like it gives you the chance to make a lot of important feeling decisions, but sometimes it’s in situations that immediately feel contrived. Later use of them may slightly help redeem them, and choices that continue themes of the game — personal vs. private life, justice vs. vengeance, society vs. the individual– still feel relevant, it’s just a shame that the plot’s seams sometimes become very exposed.

This game is a must play for any Batman fan and a must play for any Telltale fan. The story is different and refreshing but has the best of Telltale baked in with the decisions and the flowing dialogue. It was a pleasure to play and another shining example of great story telling in a game and had some of the best QTE I’ve seen in one of their games.

It was not easy to come up with something new and interesting in the Gotham City's universe, but Telltale Games nailed it with this Batman series thanks to a thrilling and well-written storyline.

The best video game version of the Caped Crusader to come along in some time, Batman: The Telltale Series delivers the action and characterizations that you'd expect from a property based on the Dark Knight Detective.

Batman: The TellTale Series Season 01 is a great view into the world of TellTale's Batman. Complete with beautiful worlds, deep characters, and fun twists that'll have you guess what you did, and didn't do, from start to finish. If you're up for a deep look at the man under the cowl, this is one Batman adventure you'll want to do.

Telling one of the most interesting Batman stories in any medium, Batman: The Telltale Series is a really cool take on Batman with some great fight scenes and fun investigations. It just really needs some technical polish.

Perhaps Batman: The Telltale Series’ greatest flaw is inconsistency; playing each episode separately can make some of the weaknesses of the lesser episodes, like technical issues and poor pacing, more apparent in a way that most other Telltale series do not suffer from.

There can be frequent load times and frame rate drops, but they don't really matter as it never gets in the way of the fun and exciting story. What did tarnish an otherwise fantastic game was the awful save system that failed me multiple times, making me repeat 3 hours of gameplay I had already experienced. But if you can get past that and are a fan of The Dark Knight trilogy or Netflix's Daredevil, you should feel right at home and won't want to miss experiencing this new series.

Batman is a great use of the license. It may take a few liberties, it still delivers a great story with good pacing. The engine may be weak, but the writing is on point for fans of the Dark Knight.
