Man, it appears that all Batman PC games are cursed these days. The first episode of Batman – The Telltale Series has just been released and according to a lot of reports, the PC version is a complete mess.
Right now, the game has a “Mostly Negative” reception on Steam, with users complaining about poor optimization, freezes, crashes and bugs.
Steam members claimed that the dialogue is out of sync, that the game runs with 10fps (even on powerful machines, though performance will vary on different PC systems so you miiiiiight be lucky enough to run the game with better framerates), and that they are unable to change the resolution to 1080p. Ouch.
As one of Steam’s members wrote:
“Can’t even put the game in fullscreen or at 1920×1080. You’ll select your resolution only to have nothing to change, and selecting the full screen option doesn’t do anything.
Then when you go back a few menus the game says “settings have been changed. Apply or Restore” and applying does nothing.”

“The new engine ruined it all used to have 60 fps now i got 10 and stutters every few seconds.”
And another Steam member wrote:
“Runs like absolute sh*t. Mouse is laggy and slow, keyboard control is unresponsive as f’, and the actual game is basically a slideshow. Normally I’d write this off as a problem with my computer being kinda crap, but there are -no- options to improve performance by sacrificing graphical quality. I can lower the resolution and turn of anti-aliasing. that’s it. In this day and age, that’s frankly unacceptable. Especially for a game that’s literally all about watching cutscenes, running poorly is a f’in’ killer. Zero Time Dilemma ran perfectly on my system with zero need for tweaking the settings, and that this game – made by people used to developing for PC, no less! – does not is kind of telling.”
So yeah, if you are interested in this new Batman game, we strongly suggest waiting before purchasing it!
