I've been very vocal in the past about how I don't find the Joker to be the most compelling Batman villain, but I have to give credit where it's due. Telltale has not only managed to make one of the most interesting incarnations of the Harlequin of Hate, but the slow build has paid off wonderfully over two seasons. It doesn't feel rushed at all, and it has all built up to a natural point where John Doe is finally embracing his madness in a way that was impacted by the player. I'm incredibly excited to see what happens next, and to see what sort of chaos I accidentally helped cause.
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.
Batman: The Enemy Within returns to greatness with Episode 4, What Ails You.
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.
The pacing of "What Ails You?" was great, it was quick and covered a lot of material.
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.
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 serves as the payoff to the slow burn that has been this season so far, and it's an satisfying one
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.
In 'What Ails You,' there's enough positives to make this a strong instalment.
Continuing the great work of previous episodes, What Ails You sets up the season finale of Batman: The Enemy Within wonderfully.
The line between hero and villain is further blurred in Telltale's latest Batman episode, as a world of half-truths and lies comes crashing down on players in the most unexpected of ways.
"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.
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.
