Summary: That I lay awake that night and ran through the events which lead to my ending - with its own successes and failures - proves season two's success. It's not as neat as what came before, its roads are all equally bloody and terrible, and its moment-to-moment narrative can prove messy at best, but it succeeds as a story - one that will keep you thinking about your own choices and mistakes until season three arrives.
The Walking Dead Season Two - Episode 5: No Going Back Review
31 August 2014
Excerpt: In the two-or-so hours of The Walking Dead Season Two' s finale, I felt closer to the characters in my group than in any of the previous episodes this season. No Going Back picks up directly after the bombshell of a cliffhanger in Episode 4 , throwing you right into the middle of the shootout. As you can probably guess, there are survivors from the shootout. Episode 5 does what it can to give you a satisfying ending, wrapping up all the loose ends with a neat little bow.
Summary: Depending on your perspective, 'No Going Back' is either tenth, fifth, or even eleventh episode of Telltale Games 'The Walking Dead' game series. And with this new episode, 'The Walking Dead Season 2' ends. Clementine and what's left of her little survivor's group are set to crawl out of their latest predicament, newborns and bullets intermingled into the cliffhanger fray of 'Amid the Ruins.
Excerpt: The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 5 - No Going Back concludes the newest season for Telltale Games' most popular franchise. The aftermath of The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 4 - Amid the Ruins has left the group broken and divided. Clementine will need to make many gut-wrenching decisions for players to progress further into the final chapter, and gamers won't feel good about several of the choices they have to make along the way.
Excerpt: Developer and publisher Telltale Games' biggest franchise ever continues in The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 4 - Amid the Ruins . The fourth episode of the five-episode long season released in July 2014 and allowed gamers to once again step into the shoes of the game's young protagonist named Clementine. The game series is well known for its emotional storytelling with a heavy emphasis on difficult decisions that must be made by the player throughout the game.
Summary: This series is supposed to make you terrified, to dread what's around the next corner. Amidst the Ruins capitalizes on Telltale's incredibly ability to make you think to the future - how will this choice affect me twenty minutes from now, will this come back to bite me in the ass, can this person really be trusted? - and I made very few choices without seriously weighing up every possible repercussion.
Summary: Telltale Games overcomes the hump as they turn out the fourth episode in season two of 'The Walking Dead.' 'Amid the Ruins' deals with the fallout of episode three's climactic, violent finale. Clementine's journey continues down a dark path. Can Telltale drum up the stakes for the fifth and final episode?
Summary: A couple of months back I said that Episode 2 of Walking Dead's second season is the best work Telltale have produced yet. After having finished In Harm's Way , that praise hasn't changed. Whilst Episode 3 proves itself by the end of the hour and a half it took to dispatch it, its slow start fails to ride the excellent pacing the last two outings had carefully built.
The Walking Dead: Season Two - Episode 3 ‘In Harm’s Way’ Review
21 May 2014
Excerpt: In Harm’s Way might have been the most difficult episode of Telltale’s The Walking Dead series. Not because of any gameplay mechanics, but because of the decisions I was forced to make along the way. Anyone who's played a Telltale game knows you’re going to make some touch choices along the way, but in Episode 3: In Harm’s Way , it feels like those decisions finally mean something. More importantly, they make you feel something.
