Batman - The Telltale Series Review
Warner Bros. and Telltale collaborated to give all Batman fans out there something to praise. The game has one of the most intense narratives. Here is more about the outstanding title.
The 3D graphics on this game are incredible. The characters are beautifully designed and animated with impressive detailing. You can pick out everything from the stone contours on the walls of the Batcave to the creases on police uniforms. Something else worth noting about the graphics is the theme-appropriate color scheme. Finally, the smooth animation and resultant delay-free motion will ensure you have an excellent gaming experience.
Batman the Telltale Series is a point and click adventure video game divided into five episodes. It is set in Gotham City a few years after Bruce Wayne decides to accept his Batman alter ego. The main plot follows the hero as he tries to thwart the plans of a terrorist group in the city.
One of the best things about the gameplay is the presence of branching plots. You have the freedom to follow different storylines by making specific choices. Unfortunately, this interactive feature is not as flexible as it promises to be. Many of the decisions you will make are inconsequential and have a minimal effect, if any at all, on the flow of the narrative.
The game has two main gameplay options, namely the Investigation Sequence and the Combat Sequence. The former involves looking for clues and exploring the city while solving mysteries. The second choice allows you to flex the hero’s muscles by directly taking on different antagonists.
The controls on Batman the Telltale Series are above average. The game on the Nintendo Switch console (as well as other platforms) offers very few manipulation options, especially during the Investigation Sequence with simple point-and-click actions which are not exciting. However, the game does make up for this deficit by giving you a chance to flex your finger muscles and put the console to good use during the numerous intense action fight scenes.
Replay Value: 3.0
One thing it has going for it is the presence of multiple storylines. Once you have completed one, you can start over and follow another character to unlock a different subplot. The impressive fight sequences also raise replay value.
The focus on mystery solving, unfortunately, works against the game when it comes to replayability. Solving all the mysteries and exploring the different plots will leave you with nothing new to look forward to.
Batman the Telltale Series has one of the most captivating storylines in the action and adventure video game genre. This makes playing so much fun as you uncover Gotham City’s mysteries. The graphics are also on a whole other level of awesomeness and haven’t lost their quality despite being shrunk down to fit the Nintendo Switch. All in all, the game has a lot to offer despite the few flaws.
