The second series of Telltale Games Batman is a welcome return to my screen with the titular character carrying on a refreshing and different pacing to the Dark Knight that we are used to. The return to Telltale Games is welcome and the choices carried out within the game’s first series will have a last effect on the dark days to come in the games second series, which is titled The Enemy Within

If you have read any of my articles on Telltale Games before then you will know I am a huge fan of the interactive story with hard choices and the consequences that you have to live with. The games low level of interactivity with the actual story has been a point of contention with some players which is understandable if you are wanting something a little more hands on. The Batman series allows you to interact a little more with environments and get into the roles of both Batman and Bruce Wayne, allowing for 2 different sides of the same coin. 
The game delivers a engrossing narrative that gives players a 2-3 hour burst of gameplay, which can be enjoyed at the time or you can wait until the full series is over then play all the episodes (roughly 10 hour play time) all at once.

The release format of episodic games is becoming more and more commonplace in the world of digital download titles. One of the companies most famous for this format is TellTale Games with their series like The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Batman A TellTale Series and so forth. Other companies have found great success using the same medium such as DontNod and their Life is Strange series or Square Enix latest Hitman season 1, both of these series have has commercial and critical success for their content. 
When more independent studios follow the episodic format we are unsure what to expect, sometimes you can have a half-hearted attempt at a mediocre idea and other times you can have a truly hidden gem. 

The team at Prologue Games took the episodic format and then added more dynamics to it; this resulted in something unusual and pretty unique as far as settings for games are considered. The game follows the actions of a blogger, newspaper journalist and a private detective as they all start covering the events of an actor’s suicide in a backwater Florida swamp town. 
Their individual actions intertwine with one another and then cumulatively create something larger in narrative than a simple “who done it?” style of game.
The game is told like a play on a stage with the audience’s reactions lending weight to player decisions and choices. Scenes are rotated on constantly and the characters walk in between sets to show the change of location. The story lasts for 3 acts with the plot growing in size and ambition with each passing chapter; though by the time you come to the third act you stop trying to guess what happens and just start enjoying the ride.

The hype of Batman is enough to get the majority of people on board, Telltale games have crafted a brilliant and compelling story in their first 2 episodes of "Batman - The Telltale Series". The story driven narrative more than makes up for the lack of button bashing combat mechanics of RockSteady Games Arkham series, where choices and consequence play out as the game progresses in Telltale's signature style. 

Episode 3 returns us to the world of Bruce and Batman both progressing down their own path to destruction, as the further they delve into the madness to more blurry the world they know becomes.
