Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4 Reviews
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.
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 best episode of The Enemy Within since the season opener.
Telltale puts Bruce Wayne and John Doe's relationship under the microscope in the strongest episode of the Batman: The Enemy Within.
Batman: The Enemy Within: What Ails You may hurl a lot at the wall, but in doing so it's very exciting and, at times, will have you genuinely intrigued as to what's next. As that's the point, it's hard to be overly negative about it.
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.
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 returns to greatness with Episode 4, What Ails You.
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.
In 'What Ails You,' there's enough positives to make this a strong instalment.
The pacing of "What Ails You?" was great, it was quick and covered a lot of material.
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.

This episode returns this Telltale Batman series to form, so if you haven't enjoyed the past two, then I urge you to give it one more shot thanks to this rather exciting and informative episode.
"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.
They could still turn it around with a memorable finale. Maybe this episode's most vital maneuver is to have cleared some of Batman's — and Telltale's — path to success.
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.

Continuing the great work of previous episodes, What Ails You sets up the season finale of Batman: The Enemy Within wonderfully.
I do look forward to seeing how everything ends this season. They've got a perfect setup, now let's see if they execute it.
What Ails You serves as the payoff to the slow burn that has been this season so far, and it's an satisfying one
The first episode is by far the best one of Season 2 and Telltale has yet to reach the same highs. 'What Ails You' picks up at the end thanks to the Joker, but it's not as exciting as other episodes. Hopefully The Enemy Within ends with a bang with episode 5 in a few week's time!
