When the Pact puts its plan into motion, Bruce's cover is finally blown, and as his web of lies unravels, new questions emerge: When and how will the Pact regroup? What’s truly motivating Amanda Waller and the Agency? And perhaps most importantly, how will John Doe handle the truth about his buddy Bruce? With another showdown brewing, the clown prince of crime may finally earn his crown...

Review imageEpisode 4, 'What Ails You', in Telltale Game's Batman The Enemy Within is another strong chapter in this 5-part game.

This time around your relationship with John Doe is put to the test, as he takes a further step towards becoming the monster that we know he will eventually turn into: The Joker. But, will you, as Bruce Wayne, try to salvage your rocky friendship, or throw him to the wolves, letting him know you've been playing him since the start? The choice is yours.

Waller is acting rather strangely and Special Agent Iman Avesta begins to question her motives. Meanwhile, the Pact's secret plan is coming to a head and Bruce Wayne will have to chose his movements carefully.

Review imageBy far my biggest complaint is that this is a very short episode with little in the way of actual game play. However, this has always been a series where it's more about unraveling the thrills and surprises in the plot's rich narrative than it is about wandering around collecting clues.

I also enjoyed the walk through the fun house - although I wish it had been a little longer with a few more exhibits to examine.

I'm very much looking forward to playing the final episode. Hopefully it will be a much longer chapter.
