3 June 2015
Excerpt: Age Rating: 18+ Other console/handheld formats: PS3, Wii U Telltale Games’ Walking Dead games capture everything that a game of The Walking Dead should. The games have their action scenes, but they also have dramatic scenes and memorable characters.
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.
