Late Gamer Plays Batman – The TellTale Series: The Enemy Within

A Review From Hidai Moya

This second Batman Telltale game does a lot right, but it can not quite stick the landing.
Its first chapter with The Riddler is a fantastic & grim story that borrows elements from the Saw movies. Later on, as it introduces Mr. Freeze, Bane, & Harley Quinn, things start to get really intense as Bruce Wayne infiltrates their criminal ring by befriending them. Bruce being stuck in between a perilous friendship with The Joker while Amanda Waller is riding his ass is great drama. But then as the story begins to end it can not maintain the momentum it needs to satisfy all it has been building up to.
I feel that lifelong Batman fans deserve better endings than some we have already seen many times.
While uneven it’s still a unique & occasionally hairy Batman adventure, worth getting on sale especially to see a unique side of the Joker.
