3Batman: The Telltale Series

Telltale Batman 3

  • Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC

Before shutting down shop and then reopening again, Telltale Games worked its magic and delivered not one, but two series based on The Batman. They were good, too, but if you’re wanting to jump in you should start with the first.

Being a Telltale game series, Batman: The Telltale Game Series isn’t a fast-paced action game. That’s not to say there isn’t any action in it, though; just that whenever there is, you’re reduced to just pressing buttons as they pop up on the screen rather then being in control of it. Instead, the focus here is on the narrative, which you’ll direct via dialogue options.

There’s an interesting story here that explores the fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne, and offers a fresh new look at the Dark Knight. Familiar faces show up, but there are some surprises along the way. And once you’re done with Batman: The Telltale Series you can jump into its sequel Batman: The Enemy Within. It continues the story, but has an increased focus on doing a spot of detective work. Needless to say, if you’re not an action game fan, these truly are the best Batman games you can play right now.
