The Walking Dead: Season Two - Episode 3, 'In Harm's Way' Review
20 May 2014
Summary: "In Harm's Way" doesn't find the same balance of exploration and linearity that mark the very best Telltale episodes, but The Walking Dead's story and protagonists have scarcely been better executed.
Pros: Deeper characterization, Satisfying resolution and mystery, Small gameplay surprises
Cons: Too little exploration, Wasted characters, Explanation breaks immersion
Summary: Clementine kicks ass. Episode two of the second season of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead adventure series may be about more than just this pint-size survivor of the zombie apocalypse impaling undead skulls and blasting away with a handgun.
Pros: More of a self-contained, satisfying story than the first episode of season two, Introduces a promising new villain that could rank with the Governor and Negan in the Walking Dead franchise's rogues' gallery, Absorbing plot that turns into one long existential crisis
Cons: Unrelenting brutality swerves too close to self-parody
The Walking Dead Season Two, Episode One: All That Remains (Multi-Platform) Review
29 December 2013
Summary: Though not off to the rip roaring start that season one had, season two is more than capable of holding your attention. I can't wait to see how it plays out. I just wish they would have done a bit more to establish where things were heading.
The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series -- Season Two
17 December 2013
Conclusion: Season 2’s premiere of The Walking Dead is predictable in good and bad ways — its character drama is strong, its technical prowess is not. Clementine’s character development highlights the fact that she was a secondary character, someone to look out for, in the first season.
Pros: Strong, independent protagonist, Fantastic, dark decisions, Interesting character drama
Conclusion: The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a great tease for those looking forward to Season 2. I would have liked for each story to be fleshed out more, but that’s what the next chapter is designed for.
