Quick! Go now, you have until November 7th to play the awesome first episode of Batman – The Telltale series for free on Steam.
This serves as an excellent taste for all those people unsure about the game’s performance, story or overall enjoyment they will get from the game and are “two-faced” about forking over their Batman Bat-Credit card.
After you play the first episode, and are excited about what the future holds for Batman, then the entire five episodes are on a discount on Steam for 15%.
I have personally played the first two episodes and think that they are excellent editions to the Batman series and a solid start for Telltale. The series should be applauded for its complex look into Batman’s psyche, not just the vigilante but also the other side we aren’t as accustomed to, Bruce Wayne.
The game toys with the player’s own morals and allows the player to choose Batman’s more dominating side of his character; Batman’s brutal side or Bruce’s charm. The choices can be ruthless, however, I do wish they were more hard-hitting like the Walking Dead series and applied more weight to the consequences, but I am hopeful that the later episodes will apply the “all choices will have consequences’ mechanic that is famous in Telltale games.
