The Pact provides a highly compelling, Bruce Wayne-focused episode that continues to push the momentum of this season forward at a fast pace. The lack of common Telltale features may be a bit off-putting to some fans, but those eager to see Gotham’s diverse cast of characters at their best will find plenty to enjoy with The Pact.

I still love Telltale’s take on the Bat-verse, but the remaining episodes of The Enemy Within have an uphill climb to get this season back on track.

Ultimately, I finished The Pact with a keen interest in where the series is going in spite of the plot and pacing issues. I’m particularly curious to see how both the loyalty mechanic plays out over the next three episodes as well as Bruce’s relationship with the Joker, which the series keeps taking in unexpected directions. The first two episodes have primarily been set-up, and a lot of it, so I’m hoping the next one makes that investment pay off and delivers the goods.

Nevertheless, Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Two builds on a strong opening to the season. It raises the stakes for Bruce Wayne by throwing him into a shark tank and asking him to turn bloodthirsty enemies into friends. Along with an empowered Harley Quinn and the unnerving powder-keg that is John Doe, the second episode provides drama and excitement in equal measure.
