    This episode builds up nicely to the finale, with a last minute reveal that will make the wait for the last episode seem longer than it likely will be.

    I loved The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4:. It wasn’t as active as other episodes, but I feel like I finally have a grasp on what is going on.

    In Sheep's Clothing is by far one of the most engaging in the series, managing to bring together the many plot threads spun and finally setting the stage for the final chapter in the adventure series.

    This is clearly not The Wolf Among Us at its best, even though it's got some interesting moments and a couple of cool choices. But it's clearly a little more than a preparation for the big finale.

    In Sheep's Clothing was something of a letdown, especially compared to the calibre of the previous episode. It's an exposition-heavy hour and a half that does little to move the plot or develop the characters, and would have better as a concise, 15 minute introduction at the start of the final part.

    Episode four serves to connect most of the pieces together and potentially meet the perpetrator behind all the chaos in Fabletown… though it doesn’t hype up the next episode as much as it could. Of course there’s always the possibility Telltale is saving the best stuff for the conclusion, so I’m still hopeful episode five will blow us all away.

    In Sheep’s Clothing is a very disappointing episode that starts slow and never picks up much steam. It all falls on the finale now to redeem this uneven series.

Being as hyped as I was for it, after the end of A Crooked Mile, left me yearning for it. The penultimate episode, acts like a bridge for the previous episodes, and the conclusion of Bigby Wolf's murder case (probably).

    I get the idea of the episode. It really makes you decide who you stand with at the end, and how dark and complicated the Crooked Man's spiderweb is. The cliffhanger leaves you with only the beginning of the end, and it is guaranteed that the fifth episode will be twice as good as any other episode, or, at least I think so.

I needed just 1 hour to finish it and that was not the case with other episodes which lasted longer. Even though t's short it's pretty damn fun as always. It also has a perfect ending for a episode which is probably why this episode is so short- for a perfect ending. I would recommend this game to anyone who haven't bought it yet even though this episode is the shortest in the series. Expand
