Video Review

Ranking:

'Children of Arkham' continues to show little progress in the Telltale Tool, but it also manages to keep up with framerate and lip syncing, more or less. As Telltale episodes go it is pretty fluid. Art design and set pieces are dry but the first scene, with Wayne quietly visiting Crime Alley to pay respects, is handled very well.

Audio Review

Ranking:

Not a lot of new voice actors yet, but the ones we have are all doing a good job. The audio troubles (artifacts, syncing, awkward silences) have cleared up to a halfway decent level.

Final Thoughts

'Batman' is gaining steam, a development I hope Telltale can maintain for the rest of the season. I am enjoying the narrative focus on Wayne and the dialogue that, while maintaining a familiar comics camp, can also be genuine when necessary. 'Children of Arkham' easily surpasses 'Realm of Shadow'.
