Rebounding from a weak second episode, Batman: The Enemy Within's third episode restores my hopes that this season will turn out well. Major developments around Batman's big secret and strong interactions with Harley Quinn, Selina Kyle, and John make Fractured Mask work, right up until the extremely abrupt ending.

When it isn't dragging its feet, the latest episode of Telltale's take on Batman offers some engaging twists and turns.

Although there is some excellent work put in by Catwoman and John Doe, Fractured Mask is ultimately just a series of "Choose A or B" conversations, taking place in overly-familiar locales, with stakes not quite as high as the game would have you believe. With only two episodes remaining, it's going to take something special to kick this story into high gear for the climax. It certainly isn't impossible; even when the chips are down, you can always bet on Bat.

I'm still very much enjoying Batman: The Enemy Within, and the way Telltale are forcing Bruce Wayne out of his punchy vigilante comfort zone

The arrival of Catwoman not only introduces us to a very interesting character per se, but also makes the Telltale versions of Harley Quinn and Bruce Wayne/Batman better.

Acting more as a transition episode, Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 3 "Fractured Mask" is another great episode in the series, even if it isn't as fantastic as the first two. The tension is running high here and Telltale's writing is at the top of its game. If the last two episodes can live up to the first three this will easily go down as one of the developer's best.

I enjoyed episode three quite a lot, and I'm really looking forward to see how the big reveals are going to effect the rest of the season.

With only two episodes left, Telltale needs to raise the stakes and ramp up the urgency of Batman's mission.

There is no interesting plot, deep characters and villains. And all the cult heroes look bleak and naive.

Episode 3: Fractured Mask doesn't quite hit the same highs as its immediate predecessor, but the tangled web that Telltale's cast in Batman: The Enemy Within is getting increasingly intriguing with each episode. This particular instalment may pump the brakes slightly in order to include necessary setup for the impending finale, but it feels meaningful, and the scenes with Selina and Bruce are particularly engaging.

Overall, in Fractured Mask, Batman: The Enemy Within continues to do what it has always done best…

An overabundance of subplots aside, this solid episode reinforces the fact that Batman: The Enemy Within is on a trajectory to be one of Telltale's better series.

If they can trust themselves to focus on the stronger points like this romance and not sell out to hit some punches thrown quota, this season could feel uniquely different than other Batman stories.

I am still heavily invested in the story of Batman: The Enemy Within, and I'm excited to see how things develop from here. But little niggles like inconsequential ‘big' decisions still feel too heavy-handed and put into the story for a bit of shock value that doesn't really amount to much in the end.

A slower episode that sacrifices action for more character development, Telltale's Batman game is shaping up to not only redefine the dark knight but also his greatest nemesis as Bruce Wayne finds himself caught up in a dangerous game.

Episode 3 of Batman: The Enemy Within adequately follows through with some earlier plot points, but it doesn't do much else.

The highlight of Batman: The Enemy Within‘s third episode is definitely the interactions with Catwoman, but it also does a great job of moving the story forward. The overall picture is becoming increasingly clear, and the episode ends with a fantastic cliffhanger that left me on edge. The wait for episode four will be rough, but I'm excited to get out of this mess that Bruce Wayne finds himself in.

With "Fractured Mask," Telltale Games offers a satisfying third episode. Bruce "Batman" Wayne has a lot on his plate and its getting harder and harder for him to please everybody without blowing his cover and revealing his secret identity. Unfortunately for non-English speakers, the game wouldn't start with French subtitles enabled.

Batman's third episode from season two does enough to keep the overall story ticking over, but a crowded narrative and confusing relationships mean this is the low point so far. Episode four will have to do much better.
