Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4
Top Critic Average
'What Ails You' takes The Enemy Within's biggest and boldest step yet toward redefining the Joker's role in the Batman universe – should you choose to push him in that direction (which I did). It's the other characters whose final impacts on Bruce Wayne/Batman's life have yet to be determined.
What Ails You serves as the payoff to the slow burn that has been this season so far, and it's an satisfying one
Telltale puts Bruce Wayne and John Doe's relationship under the microscope in the strongest episode of the Batman: The Enemy Within.
What Ails You is the best episode of The Enemy Within since the season opener.
The shortest chapter, but i does not lack in depth. The genesis of the Joker is the most interesting in an episode that also explores more about characters like Amanda Waller and Tiffany Fox. It's a pity that we only have Bruce Wayne and not Batman.

What Ails you is a superb fourth episode, and gives us plenty of great set pieces and character progression as the series reaches its climax
Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4 "What Ails You" is the weakest episode of this highly regarded series. It's nowhere near a disaster though, still offering a great new Batman tale set within Telltale's interesting splinter universe. The real test of this series will come in its finale, when we see whether these last two episodes of build up end up paying off with something special.
What Ails You is the strongest episode so far, giving Batman: The Enemy Within a much-needed injection of verve as it speeds toward the conclusion of the series.
John Doe's unpredictability continues to be the highlight in a season that's seen Bruce Wayne's role become ever more important than the titular Dark Knight. While short, this is a solid episode that puts plenty of interesting plot threads into play, but with the finale around the corner, there's very little resolution – merely setup for that all-important fifth episode.
Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4: What Ails You is slightly better than last episode, but the main theme with opportunity to give player to create his own friend-opponent of Joker does not look convincing enough.
