    Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 5 "Same Stitch" is a near-perfect finale to an already fantastic series. Storytelling, voice acting, art design, and every other aspect of the series has come together here and delivered one of the best episodes in Telltale's history.

    Same Stitch is a fantastic end to a killer season. Batman: The Enemy Within is, in my mind, unequivocally the best thing Telltale has ever put to code.

    The final episode turned out to be so good that you can easily forget about the unsuccessful first season.

    The finale to Batman: The Enemy Within is epic, action-packed, and can play totally differently depending on player choice. Dialogue, characters, locations, scenes and even the outcome are vastly altered, and the whole character of The Joker can either be a deranged friend or a deadly foe. ‘Same Stitch’ is a spectacular end to arguably Telltale’s best series, and one that encourages players to replay the entire thing to see how things could’ve gone.

    Same Stitch is an amazing epilogue for an interesting and well-crafted season. It feels rushed sometimes and almost forgets about some characters that we learned to love (and hate) in the previous episodes, but the way your conflict with the main villain—and yourself—evolves is really thrilling and efficient.

    There may not be puzzles to solve but there is certainly lots to keep you involved.

    Episode Five: Same Stitch is a worthy finale. It also has genuine replay value, given its two distinct acts and multiple climaxes. With the focus fixed squarely on its brilliant leads, the final episode makes for a taut, satisfying conclusion, even if I did arch an eyebrow at how my alleged "choices" for the past ten hours ultimately played out.

    The best episode released by Telltale Games and I don't just mean Batman: TEW.

Although I've only played one side of the finale I can safely say its one of the best finales and series Telltale has done since Tales from the Borderlands.

    A fantastic finale that raises the bar for story driven gaming. Not only breaking the stigma of choices not mattering in Telltale games, butA fantastic finale that raises the bar for story driven gaming. Not only breaking the stigma of choices not mattering in Telltale games, but also giving us one of the most intriguing Joker/Batman stories I've ever seen, the Enemy Within is a must buy.

    If you've been disappointed by TTs recent outings this one should impress you. Don't skip it

    Without a doubt the most ambiscous episode ever released by telltale.

    This finale along with the finale of Minecraft Story Mode - Season 2
    Without a doubt the most ambiscous episode ever released by telltale.

    This finale along with the finale of Minecraft Story Mode - Season 2 has proved to me that telltale is getting back into creating quality games. With less and less technical glitches in each episode I play, and The Wolf Among Us Season 2/The Walking Dead Season 4 coming next year, I think Telltale is back on track to winning GOTY awards like they did with The Walking Dead.

    The episode is great, I just wish some character arcs were tied up better.

    Change in management clearly effected this one. Telltale's best work since Tales from the Borderlands. A refreshing take on the JokerChange in management clearly effected this one.

A refreshing take on the Joker accompanied by a intelligent study of the character Batman with choices that (actually) effect the narrative in large ways Expand
