Review: Batman, Episode 2: Children of Arkham
For me, the premiere of Batman: A Telltale Series last month was a shaky start. It showed potential, especially in its nifty detective sequences and its exploration of Batman’s violence, but I plotline obsessed with taking every turn to remind players that Bruce Wayne’s parents are dead and he is sad about it felt contrived and lacked Telltale’s trademark emotional resonance. Luckily, the second episode, Children of Arkham, has come along to remedy the situation, and I’m now convinced that this is just what I was hoping for when Telltale announced that they were making a Batman game.
