    Really enjoyed reading your review. I also liked the first episode of this Batman game. I am glad that they are splitting time between Batman and Bruce Wayne because, like you said, both make decisions that impact the other. I think that is something that has been often overlooked in other Batman games. Arkham's combat system was so great that I didn't mind, but I'm glad to see a Batman game that is more focused on narrative fleshing out the story to great detail. Really looking forward to the rest of the season. dance

    Didn't even know this was out. I'll be picking it up and probably be playing it tomorrow.

    i feel like this genre is done with, they are all the same pretty much, back to the future and borderlands were a chore to play for me, didnt enjoy them at all.

    Odds on how delayed the last couple of episodes will be?

    I am glad to hear there was no studdering. GOT was terrible with that. Puzzles reintroduced. I don't know, but I too will be on board when it arrives on sale - as it is sure to do!

    There were no straight up freezes, but I definitely encountered some horrible FPS drops (appeared lower than 10fps). I love all the telltale games, but they really need tow rok on the engine badly.

    Had fun with this one and looked the best so far.

    Reviews of individual episodes in an episodic series are kind of pointless, as the entire season needs to be out to see if the game lived up to its promises and if the overall story and gameplay stayed consistent.

    Your right but by the time we see all the episodes release, we'll all have Grey hair. So why not see if it's worth buying? wink

    A lot of people will be picking up the first episode so this absolutely needs a review. DLC gets reviewed this is the same premise. There should be a review of the overall experience at the end as well though. There is room for both.

    If there is something I have learned from every episodic game released on consoles by Telltale since TWD and also from other developers like dontnod (Life is Strange), capcom ( RE Revelations 2) and sierra ( Kings quest) is that if you wait for a year or slightly less; eventually the episode 1(s) would be free.

    You go right ahead and wait a year.
