March is just a couple of days away, which is great news for Xbox Live Gold members as a new bunch of free offerings will be available. The upcoming set has just been revealed, and out of the bunch, one of the better titles is Batman: The Enemy Within. It’s the complete season and will be available to download for the entire month of March.

If you’ve played any of the games by Telltale, then this latest offering will be right up your alley. It’s a point-and-click graphic adventure game with an episodic format. Batman is front and center in a world of spiraling events. The Riddler has returned to his mischievous ways and he has everyone in Gotham in a frenzy.

Batman is forced to decide what alliances are true and which ones are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Meanwhile, Bruce has his own inner demons and deceptions to battle. The storytelling in this episodic adventure game is amazing from the very beginning. There are constant twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s quite the journey that both Batman and Bruce Wayne go on.

It’s pretty incredible seeing the developer explore the inner thoughts of Bruce. From what we see in the comics and movies, he’s always so poised and ready to take on the evils that threaten Gotham. But just how can one man conquer all without taking some physical and emotional damage along the way? This more sensitive nature of Bruce is explored in this game, and Telltale does a masterful job at giving you a peak in the mind of one of the most iconic super heroes of all time.

The choice system is also amazing in Batman: The Enemy Within, which comes as no surprise. It’s an element that Telltale Games has nailed down with almost every one of their series. The dialogue options are always engaging, as you know how you respond can shape the story in a major way. There’s always the mystery of not knowing what could happen next in the plot.

Even if you’ve never played a game by this iconic studio, Batman: The Enemy Within is an amazing experience and an awesome introduction to the narrative-based genre of gaming. It’s definitely one of the better offerings for Xbox Live Gold members in some time. Best of all, you don’t have to pay a dime.
