    With the illusion of choice broken you find the story compelling enough to continue. The choices in this game do have an emotional change of direction in that they affect your immediate relationship with the other characters but even then you can sense that no matter what you do, certain things are going to happen.

    After completely dropping the ball in Episode 3, Episode 4 does just enough to compel you to continue playing. However, the let-downs continue. Decisions are still utterly meaningless, and will not affect the outcome of anything no matter what you choose to do. Introduction of new and interesting characters keeps things fresh. However, the illusion of choice and meaningful decisions isAfter completely dropping the ball in Episode 3, Episode 4 does just enough to compel you to continue playing. However, the let-downs continue. Decisions are still utterly meaningless, and will not affect the outcome of anything no matter what you choose to do. Introduction of new and interesting characters keeps things fresh. However, the illusion of choice and meaningful decisions is even more apparent. I won't get too much into detail here, but think of Episode 4, and every other episode, to simply be a interactive movie. It is not a game, but just a film in which you can press a few buttons to get to the next scene. That is all. Expand

    Around Every Corner is a layer between the middle and the end of the story, and it's mostly filler.

    Adventure series comes with another episode – and this one is the best one so far in every aspect. Can't wait for the finale! [Dec 2012]

    While not as gripping as the first three episodes, Around Every Corner remains a strong chapter of The Walking Dead. Unfortunately, too much of the game involves new characters that don't seem vital to the end game storyline. Still, this is an episode that sets up what is sure to be an incredible season finale!
