  • Summary: The star of this installment in Telltale's Batman series is John, the would be Joker, who finally unravels, going from the well-meaning if a bit unhinged friend to something much closer to the Clown Prince of Crime we're used to seeing terrorize Gotham City and Batman. [GameSpot]

    The fourth episode of The Enemy Within is the perfect culmination of a great season.

    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.

    The hammer is well and truly falling in Batman: The Enemy Within, with everything coming together, twists falling like rain, and everyone’s backs presented ready for stabbing – particularly mine. While it’s not much of a spoiler to say that Episode 4 sees the arrival of The Joker, how that happens and in what form is entirely up to you – and that’s the beauty of what Telltale have crafted. 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.

    The shortest chapter, but it 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’ 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.

    Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4: What Ails You moves its plot along quickly and in some fascinating ways. It just can't save the entire season.

    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 still is more about Bruce Wayne than Batman in its fourth part. While there is finally more depth and progress in itsBatman: The Enemy Within still is more about Bruce Wayne than Batman in its fourth part. While there is finally more depth and progress in its plot, the game still has pacing problems. Decisions, however, seem more vital as your relationship to the Joker reaches a climax. Long-time Telltale fans can expect more of the same old formula - and this is not a bad thing. Enjoyable. Expand
