Batman: The Telltale Series - City of Light

Overview -

'City of Light' is the fifth and final episode of Telltale's 'Batman', following 'Realm of Shadows', 'Children of Arkham', 'New World Order', and 'Guardian of Gotham'. We didn't see a lot of exposition or clarity in the last episode, so we're expecting big things from Telltale for this final outing.

Video Review


Almost all of the glaring framerate problems from the last episode have inexplicably disappeared. There were very few visual problems overall, and the fight with Arkham was probably the best "action" scene I've seen in a Telltale game. It ekes out as much cinematic quality as it can from the limited QTE format and looks pretty good in the process.

Audio Review


Lip syncing issues haven't been completely resolved, but nor do they threaten the otherwise good audioscape (lack of convincing sound effects during the fights notwithstanding). The voice acting is of a high quality overall, especially Lucius and Selina.

Final Thoughts

I can't quite go so far as to say 'City of Light' is good enough on its own to make the entire series worth playing. For a devoted Batman or Telltale fan, you're probably way ahead of me. For others, there is a redemptive quality to this finale, enough to make me glad I played all the way through to the end.
