Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 2
Top Critic Average
I still love Telltale's take on the Bat-verse, but the remaining episodes of The Enemy Within have an uphill climb to get this season back on track.
The Pact weaves a convoluted story that's an improvement over the first episode and ultimately entertaining if you're willing to suspend your disbelief.
Telltale flips the script on Joker and presents a cool new take on Harley Quinn in episode 2 of Batman: The Enemy Within
The Pact is a fair episode, with some familiar faces and a couple of great scenes. But due to its odd plotting, overbooked roster, and distracting technical flaws, it didn't suck me in like the previous chapter did. Still, outside of the horrible lock-up issues, it was an acceptable way to while away two hours. I'm intrigued to see where the story goes next.
I'm really enjoying The Enemy Within so far, after a strong opener and now a second episode that drags Bruce further than ever before, and strips him of any real sense of control over the situation.
The great Harley Quinn design is not enough for this episode that remind us the mediocre first season.

Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 2 'The Pact' is yet another fantastic episode in this series. It was going to be hard to top the greatness of season one, but if these first two episodes are any indication, we might be in for one of Telltale's best yet. The action, drama, characters, and story are all firing on all cylinders and fans of Batman owe it to themselves to check this series out.
It's difficult to get excited about Telltale Games at the moment, but this has me hooked and I can't wait for the next episode.
With each episode, John Doe edges ever closer to irredeemable insanity, and the question of whether or not you can save him remains an engaging one.
It seems that Batman: The Enemy Within was done by completely different people who returned to poorly written instructions for creating a blockbuster at home.
