The "Batman: The Telltale Series" is one that recently launched a new episode after a controversial start. With such numerous attributes to both remark and potentially change, the latest take on Bruce Wayne's life as both himself and the Dark Knight deserves a fitting review.

As some may know, the Telltale Games rendition of Batman launched its third episode, "New World Order." Great promises have befallen the said continuity of the "Batman: The Telltale Series," though the question on whether the game will do better for the franchise is yet to be fully addressed.

According to earlier reports, "Batman: The Telltale Series" makes an utterly strong point to emphasize on The Children of Gotham, as well as fellow mainstay characters Selina Kyle and Harvey Dent. The said episode allegedly tackles the reality of how Thomas Wayne, Bruce's father, was actually not too straight edge. It was divulged by The Children of Gotham that Wayne Enterprises was made out of criminal acts, making it so that the whole city turns their back on the golden boy.

Other reviews talk of how "Batman: The Telltale Series" episode 3 gave minimal detective work to Batman himself, in comparison to the exposure of Bruce Wayne. Bruce's connection to Selina has seemingly taken a stale road and has not changed, but the revelation of a new villain makes an utter mark in the storyline. Harvey Dent's cannon now progresses further to a more relatable and familiar character to the fans, making his story one of the most appraisable feats in the episode.

As "Batman: The Telltale Series" adds this astonishingly new villain to the story, despite having an expansive lineup of already known entities, it is almost a full risk for the well-being of the game. Though uncanny, the move is rather brave and commendable, but some may agree that taking someone who is already in the limelight is still the better choice. Taking Penguin, for one, who was said to have drastic changes per episode albeit the character containing his own distinctions.

Overall, "Batman: The Telltale Series" has followed through with an episode that gets both the thumbs and down to all fans alike. Episode 4 is yet to succeed with the rather fulfilling predecessor "New World Order," so stay tuned for more updates and news here at GamenGuide.
