The Batman is one of the most iconic characters that DC has in its utility belt; his comic book adventures have spawned many movies and – of course – video games. One such game from the last few years – a game with a fantastic story – was a classic created by Telltale Games (“Telltale – The Walking Dead” series). It is, simply enough, “Batman: The Telltale Series.”

In “Batman: The Telltale Series,” you play as Bruce Wayne/Batman donning the cape and cowl and defending Gotham city from an assortment of villains who deserve their own little place in Arkham Asylum. In a typical Telltale fashion, the game plays in a very cinematic way with playable cut scenes where you must hit the correct buttons in QuickTime events and make large decisions that your choice will ripple into later sections of the game affecting the story in a massive way. Do you save a certain character over another? Do you show up to a scene as Bruce, or Batman? Do you take information from a certain character to owe them later, or solve a situation yourself? The choices are up to you, and with so many, there of course are multiple endings to the story.

The main gist of “Batman: The Telltale Series” is that allegations against the Wayne family have surfaced from an unknown source, threatening Bruce Wayne’s life and reputation. While Bruce deals with his normal life, he also does battle against a group called the Children of Arkham led by Lady Arkham and Oswald Copplepot. In “Batman”, you will see many familiar faces, from the likes of Catwoman, Lucius Fox, The Penguin, Alfred, Commissioner Gordon and many more that I won’t spoil.

“Batman: The Telltale Series” is a phenomenal game, withe five total chapters to play in a wild ride of a story. The only caveat is the first chapter is the only one that is free to play – the rest are paid. The first chapter is a great time waster however, and playing it gives you a great taste of the story and the game and leaves you teeming with the desire to find out what happens next.

“Batman: The Telltale Series” is free to download and play the first episode on the Android, and IOS stores.
