Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4 Reviews
Like a well-brewed cup of tea, the wait has finally paid off. We are finally getting the resolutions that this well-paced episodic deserves.
What Ails You manages to be the best episode of Batman: The Enemy Within so far. It sets up the series finale to be something I absolutely can't wait to see.
Telltale's new interpretation of Joker is a great success, and your decisions will cause much more serious consequences than before. However, Episode 4 of Batman: The Enemy Within still has a lot of ridiculous plot that makes the story childish.

Though it seemed tensions were already more or less at their highest, Telltale have managed to still nudge them up a little more.
"What Ails You" keeps the stakes high as Wayne continues to juggle numerous issues and relationships within the city of Gotham. While the short runtime can make this episode seem a bit more like filler, the usually stellar voice cast and key moments help keep the momentum up during the penultimate episode.
What Ails You is an interesting premise for a potentially remarkable epilogue. Every piece is where it should, Bruce made his decisions and we really want to know where those will lead. Now, it's just up to Telltale.

All choices felt important, the opening raid on the SANCTUS facility was action, and I was so enthralled by this episode I almost didn't notice that Batman wasn't in it at all (at least he wasn't for me). On the downside it's the shortest episode yet at only 70-odd minutes, but I was entertained by all of it and I can't wait for the finale.
All in all, it's a nice but really, really short adventure, an increasingly common occurance for Telltale Games.
The fourth episode in this second season does a great job at starting to put all the pieces together for what will surely be a big end to this series.
With more focus on Batman character and showing some parts of Joker madness, What Ails you has managed to pull itself up and keep the fans thirsty for the last episode of the series.

What Ails You gives more action, and more important plot progression, but also seems to want to fill in the gaps with plotlines it just hasn't given the proper time to.
If the last few episodes have shown any signs, it is that the final episode will be the long awaited crescendo.
Some interesting things happen in Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4: What Ails You, and it is better than previous efforts, but they are the kind of things that should have happened a long time ago, as they don't really have the necessary "power" to make you as eager to experience the end of this journey as it should.
Batman: The Enemy Within returns to greatness with Episode 4, What Ails You.
Episode 4 of Batman: The Enemy Within prevents the series from free falling. well-written narrative and awesome characterization give so much to this episode and the only problems are technical ones which should be addressed.

What Ails You does a great job of setting up the finale for The Enemy Within. Most of the episode has you following a line from start to finish with very little variation in the gameplay.
Telltale has been telling an interesting story this season, and has proven time and time again to have interesting takes on Batman villains both new and old, but it's their ability to make The Joker so interesting that should be commended as we eagerly await the finale.
The relationship between Bruce and John continues to blossom based on the choices of the player, and it shows here. Even with some slight shortcomings, What Ails You is a good way to lead into the season finale.
If you are a Batman fan haven't yet picked up either season of Batman: The Telltale Series, then what are you waiting for? If you are looking for a truly unique Batman story that turns established character backstories and Batman lore on its head then you owe it to yourself to try these games.
After a small lull in the series with the third episode, What Ails You puts Batman: The Enemy Within back on track to be the most original and intriguing re-imaging of the Dark Knight's rogues gallery and among Telltale's very best output to date. If you're not playing this series, you're missing out on some fantastic gaming water cooler moments and some of the greatest character driven storytelling for years.
