    What Sheep does so elegantly is remind us that life is rarely as tidy as Snow's rules would allow, and that "right" is an ever-shifting concept. It gives us absurd characters like talking pigs and childhood boogeymen and makes them as real as we are, so that we ourselves feel like citizens of Fabletown, scraping to get by.

    Bigby is in a tough spot and the wait for episode 5 will be a painful one but seeing this tale wrap up is something I’m frothing at the mouth for.

    In Sheep’s Clothing continues on the brutal and downright insane path that Smoke and Mirrors began. It’s a little on the short side, but Telltale uses the time to maximum effect through heightened drama and expansion of the game’s world and society. It’ll leave you excited for the final episode and angry that you can’t play it immediately after finishing this one.

    Granted, in terms of gameplay there's still really not too much here and I don't think Telltale is about to change that. But if you can live with that, the story will continue to suck you in like little else.

    The story here has been sublime throughout, but as a game The Wolf Among Us still feels remote. [Issue#114, p.84]

    While there's room to improve, The Wolf Among Us has remained stylish and enjoyable since the beginning, and I'm eager to see how it all ends.

    Inconsequential and frustratingly restrictive, this is by far the worst episode of the season – and you can only hope the finale will be good enough to make up for it.

    Up to this episode we have been trying to piece together what is actually going on within fable town. We were able to figure something's out but this episode reveals how unstable fable town has become. This episode starts to put the pieces of the puzzle together and helps give us greater insight into what makes fable town tick.
    Although there still seems to be some technical difficulties within the game, it does detract from how the end of this episode sets the finale of the series up very nicely...I can't wait!

    As usual, it's excellent. It basically starts wrapping up all the plot points to prepare for the final episode, which is fine with me. Not every episode needs a long badass fight or a substantial revelation. My only complaints are the usual lag in the 360 version and the sudden change in Beauty's and Beast's characters. They used to be so likeable, but now I'm having trouble seeing them as anything other than spoiled brats.

    All in all, it's a great episode. If you've liked this game up to this point, this episode probably won't disappoint you.

    The plot development in this episode is good, piecing it all together and ends with a truly great cliffhanger that will leave you craving the next one. The characters seem more fleshed out as well. The downside is that this episode suffers from some technical difficulties. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This episode of the epic series is very critical in finding important details about the Crooked Man, but was the most general and lacks key points that could be introduced to further the gameplay. I feel that this episode was simply an intro to the end of the game and didn't include enough to be its own episode. I also wasn't satisfied on how Beauty and Beast changed their personalities so quickly. Initially, I thought that Beauty was a kind, humble person that was quickly there to help. Once I saw the image of their rich and fancy apartment, I can't help but take them as spoiled and selfish. Also the choices weren't as critical because Bigby still got to visit both the Lucky Pawn and the Meat Place. This doesn't put pressure on the player and therefore causes less suspense in the game. This game overall is very well put together and detailed. It is very atmospheric and is very popular due to the fact that you can "Choose your own Adventure". This game is truly unique just like all of the "Tell Tale Games" productions. This episode sets the stage, for what should be, a very interesting finale! Expand
