A spellbinding adventure, The Enemy Within boldly challenges what we expect from Batman and superhero games.
For one, it doesn’t follow established Bat-lore. In fact, this sequel to Batman: The Telltale Series puts some genuinely surprising spins on famous characters. The Riddler is more maniacal than usual. An old friend makes a shocking exit. And new revelations about Wayne family history cast a shadow over an already dark universe.
Unlike most Batman games, you spend much of your time as Bruce—visiting Wayne Enterprises, socializing at a casino, even navigating Gotham’s seedy underworld. Between his snappy quips and great story beats, the billionaire businessman is as fun to play as his caped counterpart.
As the Dark Knight, you’ll leverage his legendary brain and brawn. When you aren’t hacking computers and analyzing crime scenes, you’ll go toe to toe with foes like Bane and Mister Freeze.
As with many Telltale games, the crucial decisions you make as Batman and Bruce affect events down the line. Those choices have an especially big impact toward the end of episode 4, where your response to a fan-favorite character sends you down one of two very different branching paths in the final episode.
Now that all five episodes have been released, you can experience the whole story from start to finish. It’s a mature, provocative take on the Batman mythos, and a must-play for comics fans.
