I was a bit skeptical going into this one, first because while I like Batman I wouldn’t consider myself a fan. I can take him or leave him. I enjoyed the 90’s cartoon and the older movies but much of the newer stuff or the comics i’m just kind of meh with. That being said, it was a free game on PSN last month (January) so really what did I have to lose?
The game itself is short, I played through the entire thing in a day while taking care of a one year old. Probably took about 10 hours, so I imagine without the one year old it can be done in about 8. Most Telltale games are short tho to be fair, this one is just a little extra short compared to say Game of Thrones Telltales Review or The walking dead (those reviews are coming soon) But you will be treated to an original story created for this series, and as far as I can find an entirely new villain. The series actually takes an entirely new spin on Batman to an extent seeming to take place in a world before the dark night knows of the Joker and just meets Catwoman. I can see how many long time fans may be turned away by this but for a casual such as myself it is actually very well done and fun to see. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
