Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it. You know, I just do things. The Mob has plans, the cops have plans, Gordon’s got plans. You know, they’re schemers. Schemers trying to control their little worlds. I’m not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are. Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos, it’s fair.
Okay Joker, I understand what you’re saying and don’t know why I idolised Batman for so long. Oh well. The second series of Telltale’s Batman came out and it has been the greatest fun playing this game series.
Once again it is an interactive graphic adventure game that allows the player to step into the world of Batman and Bruce Wayne. This time you have to make friends with enemies or destroy allies. The game tests your loyalty and honestly the tones of the game were reminiscent to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy hence the reason why I quoted the Joker. This game features the Joker, Harley Quinn, Bane, Mr. Freeze and the Riddler as well as Catwoman.
The gameplay’s the same as it was simple. Instructions popped up and you were able to carry out tasks with ease. The story line however grew more intriguing with favourite characters like John Doe (Who could possibly become the Joker or vigilante. Again the choice is down to you. Literally.) and Tiffany Fox (daughter of Lucius Fox and the new tech genius behind Batman). The story line was a major improvement from the last game as there was more action, character dynamics and the way your choices had an effect your relationship with a character really influences the way you make choices.
The finale was the best finale as you had the big battle of Joker/Vigilante? Again dependent on the choices you make as a player. Your loyalty was tested and I really hated making choices which made one person happy but another person angry and that was a really cool feature of the game as it got you to think on how you make your choices.
This second chapter is much better than its predecessor in terms of action and choices. This raises my expectations for the third season of the game and I cannot wait to see what Telltale does for the third season of Batman.
