Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 2
A fantastic continuation and refinement of the seriesgmecca | April 8, 2015 | See all gmecca's reviews »
I was a big fan of season one and have been a fan of The Walking Dead since early on in the comic book's history. The Walking Dead season two surpasses the original in every conceivable way and not only continues a fantastic story, but improves their story-telling experience along the way.
One of my biggest complaints about season one was that few of the decisions you made felt meaningful and they were often too polarized one way or the other. Season two does a much better job of this, making different decisions feel much more subtle and interesting. Every once in a while the tone of a decision didn't quite match the tone that I felt the prompt conveyed, but overall I really enjoyed making decisions and sometimes had a really difficult time deciding between the options. I also felt like the decisions I made were more meaningful and had a more distinct outcome than those that I came across in the first chapter. Overall, I feel like the whole experience just felt better.
The story itself continues where the first game left off and the characters that you run into feel much more organic and less like the caricatures you tended to run into in the first game. Sometimes story elements would shift opinions a little too radically in that a character who you previously on great terms with would suddenly hate you, but it also wasn't completely unreasonable that things like that might actually happen given the gravity of the situations the characters were put into.
The graphics and sound are on-par with the first game, not straying from the original formula and it works.
Overall, I would recommend picking up season one first and if you enjoy that, season two is even better. If you don't enjoy the first game, there's a good chance you won't enjoy this one either.

Much like the first season, this game excels in its writing and character development. You'll encounter lots of new characters quite rapidly, which is almost a little daunting at first, but as you progress through the chapters you quickly get to know each of them. One point which differs from the original series is that you don't really have that special connection with another character like what Lee and Clementine had. But all in all this is a truly worthy sequel and well worth a play through.
A Worthy Sequelemptyhaven | Feb. 23, 2015 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
A lot of game sequels disappoint us. It's mostly because the first game was so good and so we could not expect any less than that which was given to us. In the case of The Walking Dead, the first game was powerful in many aspects, especially emotionally. So how do you follow up a title like that? Season 2 continues with Clementine's story. It is as every bit powerful as the first, if not more-so. The way her character develops over time is very well written, and we see her become someone so mature despite her age. Your choices (and their consequences) are seen more in the game than last time. The supporting cast is also very good. In all, as a follow up to the first game, this is very good. If you played the first then you should definitely get this one as well. If you haven't played the first, then buy that one and play through it, then get this one at once.
Better than the first one ! Simply Wonderfulgarocco | Feb. 7, 2015 | See all garocco's reviews »
The Walking Dead: Season Two is a continuation of the first game of Telltale. The game continues with the same dynamics of point and click, a style of play that particularly pleases me a lot.The choices based system also continues, leaving the game more interesting and making the player think more before making the choices. Its main change is that the focus turned more to the narrative, leaving that adventure theme a little aside, but still present.The soundtrack is more present, but not something always present. When appears, completely changes the situation, may cause increased anxiety in the player, before each event. The characters are more work to personality. Each of them are more expressive, and show a more transparent way their will. The graphics still equal to the predecessor game, with a simple improvement. For those who liked the first game surely will love this sequel that I recommend to everyone.
Good but not like the first oneandreacdc98 | Feb. 5, 2015 | See all andreacdc98's reviews »
The Walking Dead: Season 2 is the sequel from the original game, but is not as good as I expected.
The first game was a classic, but this one does not have much new stuff added to it, it is basically the same game with different stories, that are not so involving for the player as the first one. What I liked most about this one is the ending, in which you have to take really big choices, that are harder to choose between than from the first one.
I would recommend this just for those who have finished the original The Walking Dead game and the 400 Days DLC, but not to someone who has not played the first one, because the game is basically the same in graphics, gameplay and quality.
I Don't Want to Take Care of this Babymikenotcaptain | Dec. 4, 2014 | See all mikenotcaptain's reviews »
Walking Dead Season 2 is a great sequel from Season 1. In Season 1 you play as Lee, but in Season 2 you are in the role of Clem. This character change is necessary but I feel like I had a stronger connection with Lee. At moments in the game I did feel that strong connection but it was not consistent. This is a choice based game and in one moment of the game I was so happy that I made a choice for Clem immediately without even reading the other choices. The Walking Dead series true strength is the emotional journey that it will take you on. Making choices in the zombie apocalypse is hard and every choice has its consequences of good and bad, and this game does a great job at showing you exactly what those are. I loved this game, but really did not want to be stuck with that baby. I am just a kid, someone else take care of it.
A fitting sequelRobojeeves | Oct. 4, 2014 | See all Robojeeves's reviews »
The Walking Dead: Season 2 has a gripping story, some deep and memorable characters and a beautiful art style, but it sometimes suffers from technical issues and missed opportunities. Overall it is a great experience and contains some of telltale's best work. Fans of the original definitely owe it to themselves to experience this chapter Clementine's story, however, newcomers should probably start with season 1 as this story relies quite heavily on emotional connections established in the first game.
A Good Little Game, But Not The OriginalDarlus | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all Darlus's reviews »
After playing the first Walking Dead game in this series, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this game. It starts off strong with some familiar faces to gently glide me back into their world, but over time throughout the following episodes I started to realise something. I missed Lee, and I think the game misses him too. The characters mention and talk about him several times, and how could they not? Instead they surround Clementine with new characters that I never fully liked or appreciated for the most part. There are a few surprises from the past along the way which is nice, but the void was never filled.
They hit me hard with the nostalgia card a few times which proved to be pretty powerful, but it mainly just made me remember how amazing the first game is, and I started to think harder about what I was really doing this time and made myself angry. Here I am surrounded by mostly people I deemed to be incapable of surviving in this world, and the voice of reason is a CHILD.
Playing as Clementine was an interesting idea that provided new experiences and challenges to both the players and the developers, but I never really felt like I wanted to BE her because I still felt like I needed to protect her. In the first game she was the center of the world, and I needed to keep her safe. I still felt that way playing this game. Other characters in the game do as well, but the partner dynamic set up in the first game between Lee and Clem was so strong that there really isn't much they could do to recreate that, so they went a different route, which I found ultimately successful and still fun to play through, and just not Great, which is what I really needed this game to be. Great.

This game, as well as its predecessor, is the reason why TellTale games has its name well-earned. The Walking Dead: Season Two is a story of, well, you know, The Walking Dead (duh). But this story, is written by you, and your decisions (prepare for ultimate guilt and regret). In this game you control (spoilers: don't read if you haven't played Season One) Clementine, an orphaned child who fights for survival in the most badass way, cheating death over and over while realizing it's not only the dead what threaten her life and well-being... Oh and yeah, prepare a box of tissues, I tell you. This will make you cry like your mother when she first watched Titanic. So be warned: this game is beautiful. And sad. Do your own heart a favor and get this masterpiece.
Nice second season, but it does't beat the first one.sergebelanger22 | Sept. 10, 2014 | See all sergebelanger22's reviews »
The title says it all. If you have played the first season, you will like this one. However, it takes about 3 episodes before getting attached to someone else than Clementine, so it is a bit disappointing from a storypoint.
The end is as much intense as for the first season. You have to take some serious choices, that we might regret later one...but we will see when season 3 will come.
The way that you play the game is identical. You click on few items to interact with them and there are some quick items events spread here and there.
Not As Good As Season 1DBOT187 | Aug. 10, 2014 | See all DBOT187's reviews »
I disliked the fact that your choices no longer seem to matter and the same consequence happens regardless. The episodes feel less about character development and exposition and more a case of occasionally click here or click this dialogue to advance the story.
Compared to season 1 there is less exploration, less character development and you just don't care if the characters live or die. The gameplay while tighter and better in some cases can't make up for the lack of gripping story and characters.
The best game with the best story.hateah | July 29, 2014 | See all hateah's reviews »
That;s one of the best action - zombie games. It has a mainstory, It has well drown characters, many episodes, a lot of sense in every scene of the game have been putted. Even if it's drown not that real it still has that horror effect which will affect you while playing the game. You'll feel the pressure on you as the zombies are chasing you and you're trying to kill them. That's one of the best action - horror games imo. It's based onto the main story which you are following through the whole game, it requires a lot of logic in some of the stages of the game, which makes it not that easy as you might've expected a game with zombies to be. The graphics as I said might not be that real but the walking dead isn't a game about real graphics .It's a game where you can find a whole new world, a whole new story to follow.

This game is a great game! From graphics to the sounds, it's perfect! The graphics are very good, even though it doesn't need to run on some high-end pc. The story is also very interesting and a bit saddening sometimes. It could also make you feel guilty, and sad. This game plays with your emotions. However, this is not completed yet. Despite being a point and click game, it has great gameplay, compared to some games. I recommend you to buy this game!
Great game - Except not completed yet.TheTwerkBot | July 12, 2014 | See all TheTwerkBot's reviews »
I first heard of this game from Pewdiepie, so I knew I had to try it out. And it was quite an interesting game. A great story, and the decisions that you make sometimes matter. However, I have not played the first walking dead game, so I will have to pick up some time during a sale. The character at first seems like they're very not trustworthy, but soon you'll get to know them, similar to a character progression story. I would rate a 100, if it weren't for a problem I had with it (Bluescreen). This game runs smoothly on windows 8.1 Single Language though.

The first season of The Walking Dead was a breath of fresh air in the videogaming world, exploring the exquisite nature of storytelling and character development. Season 2 continues a while after the end of Season 1, adding elements from the 400 Days DLC in the mix as well. Now focused on Clem, it does largely the same thing. There are new memorable characters introduced, relationships explored and dramatic choices designed. Unfortunatelly, the episodes have gotten shorter, and now there is no emphasis at all on minor puzzles, which were found in Season 1. There are some new motions introduced, making action sequences more natural. All in all it's an amazing collection of episodes, and the plot is always getting more and more interesting. For the very low price it's being sold at, it's a bargain.

The Walking Dead is one of the best examples of video game characters with well-built, with whom we care, and this further reinforces the importance of dialogue and choices, because through them we end up, who knows, with friends, and wreak havoc / or some discomfort or even save or condemn anyone. And this all makes this even harder this 3rd ep. the second season, very focused on the story.
The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Ep. 3 - In Harm's Way We, as players, we also take many punches in the stomach during this episode. With this increased focus on narrative, such scams are even stronger, also worth saying that the Clementine own slaps him, really, at any given time. That slapping hurts and hurts the girl, of course, but it's as if we we felt that pain too, given the enormous pressure to which we are exposed.
And at the end of the episode we are again exposed to something awful. Something we witnessed against which we can do nothing. Something that Telltale was keen to leave the final. Something that shocks us, reminds us of previous events and that leaves us with an immense desire to play the next chapter as soon as possible. This event also Clementine force to take a hard decision. A decision might even, perhaps, to put it in hot water in relation to their friends. A decision, above all, terrifying. We are forced to choose one of two options, and neither is good. Ah, Telltale, I want more of it all in the next episode. Even though he has less action and more talk, like In Harm's Way.
The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Ep. 3 - In Harm's Way Conclusion In Harm's Way is the third episode of the second season of The Walking Dead, and is the one with the greater focus on the narrative so far. Telltale opted for more dialogue, more cutscenes, less exploration and puzzles, and nailed it. Clementine is a captivating to extreme memorable character, and continues to evolve in a masterly manner. A girl has to make increasingly difficult choices, and almost always they all have something inherently bad. The psychological pressure is enormous for the whole chapter. This chapter is that, without a doubt, the best so far in Season 2.
MidnightWolfie's ReviewMidnightWolfie | May 1, 2014 | See all MidnightWolfie's reviews »
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen! Today I will be making a review of a story based game called The Walking Dead Season 2. As much as you could have realized, this game is a sequel to the original game called The Walking Dead.
A bit about the game and developers. As I said at the start of this post, this game is a sequel to The Walking Dead. Just as the previous game, this is a point and click game in which you move around just a little bit, click on a thing or two and just watch the show. This game, just as previous one, was developed and published by Telltale Games. They are the same guys who made the previous game, and many other very well known games such as The Wolf Among Us.
About Gameplay. Just like in the previous game, you don't do much in The Walking Dead Season 2. You walk around every now and then, click a button or two when the timing is crucial and search for hidden objects that you need to find. Also you have an option to talk to anyone from your group that is currently in your playable area. Telltale has changed the look of the game a little bit, and that makes me glad. Choices of your sentences are now spread in four boxes, in stead of being one under the other. This makes the game look much better, but it also makes it a bit harder to read through your choices. Luckily Telltale have thought of that too! They made the game give you a little bit more time to read through all of your choices and select what you would want to say if you were in that situation.
When you want to interact with certain objects or people a small circle will appear around it in which you can chose what you want to do. This makes the game look cleaner and, in my opinion, much better. They also added a new thing to the game which I don't remember in last one. They added button spamming and directions of your actions into the game. With that I mean that the game makes you hit Q rapidly during some scenes, or it makes you move to left, right, up or down in some scenes. If you fail to do that, or you press the wrong button, you die which is quite frustrating. Just like in the previous game, if you die you get set back quite a bit. You have to watch long scenes, long talks and maybe even re-make your choices from before. And if you die just before a new save, and the previous save was 20 minutes ago.. Well, you are going to have a very bad day.
The Walking Dead Season 2 is a game that focuses on Story more than gameplay. The game does it's best to connect you to the characters in it. The developers actually want you to live through the story, and that's what makes this game amazing. They are doing a great job about it! But I have to say, I have connected to the characters from the previous game more then with the new ones. Mainly because new characters are more selfish.. They are a small group of people who probably got betrayed before, and therefore they are judging you too much. Therefore I got quite happy once I was able to reconnect to a member of my previous group.
The game is still in early parts of the story, so there's only two out of five episodes out yet. There's a lot more story to be revealed, and I have to say that I can't wait to play through it.
Graphic and Audio. The graphic is quite outdated, but they are doing that on purpose. This game focuses on being as close to comic books as possible, and that's what makes it different and awesome. Audio is very nice and never gets annoying. I really enjoyed both graphic and audio of the game.
Pros, cons and final grade. Pros: - Amazing story. - Ability to chose your own "future". - Surprising outcomes.
Cons: - Sometimes your choice is a negative one, even thought you thought it would be positive. - The game is still not full out and waiting for next episode is just too hard and too long, since the game is just too good.
Final Grade: 9/10
Extra Info: If you love games with very deep, amusing and easy to follow story then this game is for you. You will not go wrong with purchasing it!
Reviewing Dead: Season 2 --------> Buy it Or Not? (so far.....)koticpaxx | Feb. 28, 2014 | See all koticpaxx's reviews »
Poor Clementine. Poor, poor clementine. She is one tough cookie. When I was her age, I couldn't make it through a scrape on the knee, let alone stitch myself together!
Welcome back to the land of the dead, where your favourite (Canadian) characters die, unnecessary brutality is permitted and you feel traumatized by the masterpiece that is The Walking Dead: Season 2. In this turn of events, you play as Clementine, and without SPOILERS, you're left to fend for yourself. Can this new and cruel world provide sanctuary for our little hero?
The gameplay is, like the previous one, simple. Choosing which words to say to lead you down different paths and moving around to explore, though I feel like this time, there is more important choices being presented. The presentation is like all the TellTale games, with a unique and cartoony look that proves that it is not your average saturday-morning cartoon, with its brutal themes and violent graphics. The music is needless to say, top-notch. Inspiring every emotion with every tune played is truly a very well placed move.
Now let's get to the main course. The story. Oh the story. Why must you do this to us? With a major death of a character still fresh on our minds, it's hard to see what's in store for Clementine and that's what makes Season 2 so great. The surprises and shocking events really make you go along a roller coaster of emotions.
Of course, it is outstanding. From a critic's point of view, I am rather worried that it might not live up to the emotional values that was Season 1, but looking at TellTale Games, I fully trust them with this. All in all, if you haven't played Season 1, WHY ARE YOU READING THIS, and to all you who have, and are looking to buy this game, i say do it. And as I said before in my Season 1 review, get your permission slips signed, we're going on a feels trip.
And so continuous the story.wagamer | Feb. 8, 2014 | See all wagamer's reviews »
I was waiting for this game for a long time because the first one was so flawlessly done that I was so captivated I had to know what happens next. The game is perfect as the story continuous but for me the episodes seem to be short and I crave for more. The game takes off with Clementine and her 2 friends in a gas station where bad thing happen,after that you are leave with Christa in the woods and try to survive,at one moment you 2 are split apart and so begins the story of little Clem trying to survive by her self (at the moment) in the harsh world filled with flesh eating dead corpses.
The second season contains 5 episodes,each one should be released 1 and a half months apart from each other.
The game has a very captivating story with good mechanics and a great story with interesting graphics.For a point and click game I have to say that TWD is one of the best out there that's the reason I give it 100/100!
Amazingcomicnabster | Feb. 4, 2014 | See all comicnabster's reviews »
I loved the first Walking Dead. Telltale gave believable, sympathetic, non-stereotypical characters. All the protagonists were easy to connect with in some manner. The emotional impact was unlike that of any game I've played in the past. We finally have a "zombie game" that manages to feel like it's more than just gore!
I really don't know how to review Season 2 without giving a lot of spoilers about the plot. Suffice to say, my experience has left me waiting in agony for the next episode. Hurry up Telltale! Anyone who likes point-and-click storytelling games will be right at home with this game.
P.S. If you own the first Walking Dead but not 400 Days, buy 400 Days first and finish it, and keep the save file. Like Mass Effect, this game imports the saves from the previous ones and it's really not a complete experience to start anew.
A good start, but can it live up to the standard set by season 1tehwabbit | Feb. 4, 2014 | See all tehwabbit's reviews »
With season 1 clearly being game of the year for 2012, I couldn't wait for season 2. I was a bit skeptical when I heard that we will be playing as Clementine and straight away assumed that the game would shift to a sneak/hide simulator and disguise it behind the lead characters vulnerability
Luckily I was wrong, and despite there being a few hide/evade scenes, they were incredibly well done. Telltale have re-worked their engine a little too, making it infinitely easier to click things if you struggled before, but have also changed the way you select responses. Additional to this, some game-play elements such as QTE Evasion have come across from 400-days DLC, which mix it up a little from the standard point-n-click.
Overall I am glad we are sticking with a known character,but I'm unsure if season 2 will be able to create the emotional and amazing ending that season one managed, hopefully I'm wrong! There's a lot to live up to!

At some point, developers of Telltale Games, obviously tired of doing the traditional spirit of adventure in the "golden age" of quests , only in 3D. And there was The Walking Dead, which lasted the whole season has been , tearing at the end ovation players , wiping her eyes with a handkerchief with emotion . Because, like it or not , this game was quite comparable , for example, Heavy Rain to inflame the passions - and in some ways , perhaps, superior creation Quantic Dream.
Make the continuation of the project is always triumphant doubly difficult . Because the expectations of the public already inflated , and to please the players in the first episode of the new season of the same epic drama , as in the last part of the previous one - to put it mildly , a challenge .
Stupid and ridiculous
Apparently , just to squeeze a run of severe eye gamers a tear , the authors changed the main character to the main character , making it a small , helpless , fragile and , in general, Clementine , care about which was largely devoted to the life of our past protagonist - Lee.
Literally, in this very place , we must warn you that you expect on a decent amount of spoilers. Because without them write about interactive stories like The Walking Dead is simply impossible.
At the end of last season was put Clementine "from hand to hand" Christa and Omid - almost couples . At the beginning of All That Remains two cooing dove actively choose their future name of the firstborn - and it already leads to bad thoughts . Because we , you and I know that this kind of talk - a bad sign that shows the hard life for themselves or their parents , or for a potential child.
Usually fails. Just a few minutes of playing time Clementine already is in the company of not two but one attendant . To us, so to speak, not to relax and not postpone their handkerchiefs away.
This scene povorotets certainly looks a bit farfetched . The tragic death of one of the main characters - not the result of heavy moral choice , and even as a result of not attacking zombies. It is just about the only chance of a stupid accident , which usually say " stupid , ridiculous death."
However, perhaps the creators of the game is such an effect , and wanted to achieve ?
Little girls and taking over the world
Telltale What can not be denied , it's the ability to keep the rhythm of the narrative perfectly , alternating stages discharge voltage with brief periods of "rest" and action-packed scenes , interactivity, which was and still is quite questionable. In any case, even when we just walk quietly through the woods , anyone especially not bumping, not getting bored . All the matter in the oppressive atmosphere of helplessness and Clementines - at some point the girl is left alone with the cruel world even without the usual weapons in his bosom .
The need to make choices in this episode is the case quite controversial. From those options that we offer , in reality there is little independent . Try to help his partner or to escape - but it does not matter , the result is the same. Feed the dog , ownerless , or greedy - also no difference , it is still all end badly . Perhaps only the final fork really can somehow influence the plot .
As part slezovyzhimaniya Telltale again worked best. No, one hundred fifty eight even , because it is impossible not to notice some nightmarish busting in all that happens . When the little girl is forced to sew up the wound on his own hand, not even with coarse thread and fishing line - of course, without any anesthesia - it 's not so bad . Worse is that we have to manage the process . We have to do about five stitches before Clementine cope with its task . Naturally, every stitch is accompanied by cries after each need to pause . In short, total immersion , which is not so much sympathy as disgust, confusion and question why such a naturalistic scene generally needed writers ? On the other hand , in the first season was also tough enough - to recall the severed leg of the poor guy , landed in a trap.
The Walking Dead: Season Two Episode 1 - All That Remains How to make a baby is happy? Do not feed for three days, and then allow to find in the trash can of baked beans .
From grimaces gloomy day Dim
On the adventure series like less and less . So , never in all the time of the All That Remains we do not have to strain gyrus to get out of any difficult situation. Here no one puzzle - just search for active points, which is enough to click in order to achieve the desired result immediately and without the slightest effort . The game still is not about thought processes , but rather , about the reaction - in all senses of the word. The speed of psychomotor reactions in interactive scenes. To a depth of emotional response - in all others.
This very emotional response , of course, contributes lovely mimic animation . Committed by adults, very collected , sometimes recklessly stubborn little expression Clementines affects our feelings, really, more than all the " plot " inquisitorial contrivances designed to show how unhappy child suffers.
Beginning of the second season is fully consistent with the expectations of players realists . In All That Remains really suffered a decline in intensity of events compared to last year's finals history - and the inevitable decline quite predictable . But the rhythm of the writers Telltale hold as great as before , the story touches as much as before, bore all these wanderings living among the dead obviously did not have time - in general, everything is good in The Walking Dead. In the end, if the brevity of the episode is still perceived as its main drawback , so very hard series afloat .
Pros: dynamic history ; charismatic main character , natural facial expressions of characters . Cons: deliberate and somewhat pointless brutality of some scenes , far-fetched plot device in the beginning of the episode , the illusory nature of choice.

If anyone played heavy rain then you will love this game, the gameplay is a case of follow the story line and make your choice, save this person, kill this zombie, make a choice of who you want to save, who gets food, the best part about the game is the storyline, its more like a film your creating as you go along, i dont want to put any spoilers on here, i didnt think i would like the game to be honest im more of a call of duty and fifa person but i have had this game for a week and just completed episode 2. its not very often i will replay a game but with this i find myself going back to restart the episode to see how i can save the person i wanted to save, what happens if i make this choice or that choice. honestly one of the best games i have played in a long time.

Season 1 of The Walking Dead brought even more life to the world created by Robert Kirkman in his comic. A different group of survivors, different circumstances, but still ultimately connected by the need to survive and reevaluate what trust...and family...and friendship really are in this crazy world. Season 2 just keeps the train rolling. I urge you, please go back and play Season 1 AND 400 Days. Not only will you understand everything about why Clementine is growing into the young lady that she is and what she may or may not face, but the carrying over of your choices into Season 2 will enrich the overall playing experience.
The graphics are consistent with Season 1, in some ways I see some slight upgrades in the look of Season 2. The overall look is maintained, but...better. The interface is easy to use...and I've still not determined if I like it better than Season 1's or not.
And as some people have said, yes, this first episode seems...a little...slow...but there's a whole new set of characters and potential plots, it's not really a detractor, but I think actually makes you stop and analyze early on what choices you make for yourself to setup the gameplay further on.
Telltale nail it againparallelTom555 | Jan. 2, 2014 | See all parallelTom555's reviews »
Telltale games are masters of their craft. They may have started off creating games that generated mixed responses, but with the Walking Dead they have created a world and characters that the player can truly care about. While the first episode is used as a kind of transition from season 1, introducing the new Clementine and the array of new characters, it is still a fantastically created episode. The gameplay hasn't changed much, although a new UI is introduced. Some frame rate issues still exist, but they aren't game breaking. But lets be honest, everyone is here for the story, and it won't leave you disappointed, despite some characters voice acting being slightly off.
Despite some frame rate issues and voice acting that could be improved, the first episode puts the player on the feel train instantly, and doesn't let up until the credits roll. Get ready for yet another emotional rollercoaster of a season!
The Bar Has Been Set Too HighTheSteve | Jan. 1, 2014 | See all TheSteve's reviews »
If there's one flaw in this game, it's that the bar has been set too high. It's very early to write a full review of this game since only 1 episode has come out, but so far TWD is off to an amazing start.
You play as Clementine this time around and Telltale knows exactly what to do. They know you're playing a child so you're not as strong as Lee and some dialogue choices are exactly what a child would say. Very impressive.
But what makes these games just so... so... AMAZING to me is the powerful story. You cry. You will gasp in horror. You will stand and applaud. Need I remind you only ONE episode is out? If you haven't already, play the one episode and you will be just as excited as me for the next.

Graphics: 9 - It looks slightly comical but this is how it's meant to be. Audio: 10 - Great. When you choose your response, there is a slight lag before the character speaks. Story: 10 - Had many things that I never expected, which was great. Controls: 8 - Played this with a controller. Took me awhile to realise that A,B,X and Y have different abilities. Sometimes, constantly pressing a button to push away a zombie can be tiring. Lifespan: 8 - Considering that I finished episode 1 in about 2 hours, this game would last for about 10 hours, which isn't that great. (There is also 500 days)
The storyline was fantastic and everywhere you go, you marvel at nature's beauty. Making your own decisions makes you feel like you are actually in the game. But beware, decisions have a time limit so you have to quickly choose an answer.
Review for Episode 1gforcesa | Dec. 21, 2013 | See all gforcesa's reviews »
I was expecting the first episode to be good but no,IT WAS EPIC.I loved it,i love how Clementine has gotten used to everything that is happening and is fighting to survive.The first episode not a lot of stuff happens because it's mainly focused on getting the story straight.I don't want to talk about the story because i don't to spoil the game to everyone so I won't.The graphics have improved a lot compared to Season 1 and the gameplay is similar to The Wolf Among Us.As always the episodes are short, around an hour and half and will come in monthly.I really can't wait to see what how we are going to see Clementine grow up in this world.

The episode continues the form of season 1 without being to similar and sets up for some very interesting plot lines for the next episodes. It is testament to telltales writing ability that they make clementine both a vulnerable young child and able to be useful, which most other games do not seem to be able to do properly. Overall the first episode was solid and is a spectacular start to another great season and i can't wait for the rest. FEED ME WITH YOUR FEELS TELLTALE, FEEEEEED ME!
A great startkalil | Dec. 19, 2013 | See all kalil's reviews »
I've waited this second season from the moment I finished the first . Unlike the first season (not quite expect anything from that game when I bought it offer ) , I had very high expectations for this first episode and I really do not disappoint. The action and plot twists unfold at an early stage and hooked me even more than the first episode of the first season.
Gameplay: I will not talk much of this section as it is an adventure and there really is not much to talk about in the general area jugabilistico .
Graphics : I notice a slight improvement over the first season , although some animations remain somewhat robotic and overdone. That any other flat texture, maybe it's the game looser paragraph (excluding the gameplay ) . Despite this , I like the atmosphere you have given comic .
Sound and music : The sounds have improved so brutal , especially those in the atmosphere . I remember a scene where Clementine is opening a can of food and that's where I noticed it worked is this section. The soundtrack is also very good although many are recycled from the first game .
-History : The Best of the game very clearly . As I said before, I was hooked more than the first game , honestly I like even more the game and the series in my life I had this happen with a videogame based on a series or film. Not much to talk about history , it is an experience that you have to play to know of what I speak .
Finally, one of the negatives of this episode is the duration and the end of it, took the whole episode with plot twists and final I expected a little more honestly Habra to see how the story continues in the next episodes .

Season 2 starts off with a bang and keeps delivering. I just finished it already want to play it again to see what the other choices I can make. If you liked the first season and don't mind bashing zombies heads with a little girl then this game is going to impress you. The compelling story and brutal reality of the situation keeps you wanting more.
Telltale done it againlok0812 | Dec. 18, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
The long awaited released to last year GOTY is finally here with season 2. If you enjoyed the storyline from the first season then this is a definitely a must get as it continues the story of where it ended in the first season with Clementine. If you have your saves from the previous season and 400 days then the game will carry it over to season 2 and continue from there. With season 2, the story is just as great and it immediately starts you off in a suspense mood from beginning to the end. The first episode of the season is around 90 minutes and it was definitely a thrill to go through it. Overall, this is one of those adventure game that cannot be missed.
Early review.TETfromLondon | Dec. 17, 2013 | See all TETfromLondon's reviews »
This review isn't particularly focused on the story, firstly because most of it isn't out yet, and secondly because it is almost impossible to discuss the story without mentioning spoilers. All I'll say is that it is so far keeping up the high standard of the first season. In terms of gameplay, virtually nothing has changed. However, there have been some fairly major changes to the user interface. It is now entirely mouse driven when selecting a speech option or an action, rather than using numbers. I personally didn't like the controls of Season 1 that much, and to me, this interface actually feels far more intuitive than before. The art style is also the same as before. I'll say little else as I'll just ruin it, but if you liked the first Season, you'll probably like this one too.
