    It makes you look at humanity in a different way with each play through, not just the harsh and unforgiving humanity that exists in the zombie apocalypse, but the harsh and unforgiving humanity that exists around us in the world we live in now.

    It started nervously, almost scared of what it was, but at the end of season two, you’ll go to whomever you hold dear, and you’ll squeeze them just that little bit harder than usual. They’ll ask you why, and you won’t answer. There’s a little girl to be saved.

    No Going Back does more than caps it off with aplomb; it drags the rest of it up by its braces and recasts it as something much more than the sum of its parts.

    This ending represents a closure either for the present and the past of The Walking Dead, but leaves a door wide open for the future of the game.

    No Going Back is a quality episode, yet it fails to be as memorable as Season One’s ending, despite some intense and heartbreaking moments.

    This messy ending is an appropriate way to wrap a season that evolved into a morality play loaded with grim, philosophical musings about what it means to be a human being, whether you're struggling to survive in a zombie apocalypse or simply learning how to get by in the real world.

    Out of all of the episodes, “No Going Back” is the most relentless.

    Telltale arrived at what it has been aiming for the past two years.

It's not just about making hard choices, but watching humanity come loose. With beautiful imagery and heart wrenching conflicts, Telltale has knocked the ball out of the park. They have reminded us that apocalypse isn't about the physical breakdown of society, but witnessing the delicate threads which hold human beings together come apart. The people, including Clementine have nothing left to hide behind, as they try to survive by any means possible, however dear the cost. In a sense, they have turned into zombies, mindless and selfish, without the actual death and disease. The plague which riddles their hearts is what makes them the real zombies, The Walking Dead.

They just have this incredible habit of making you care about the characters and choices you make in the story. Only in this game have I made a hard choice, and thought about it all day afterwards in work. The episode is slightly slow at the start, but pays off HUGELY at the end, so stick with it and be prepared for heart ache. Expand

Sign me up for season 3! Mind Blow! Expand

This game is the most intenseThe season final "No Going Back" is shocking, sad and shattering. But also it is stunning and gripping. This game is the most intense experience i ever had and this episode is the top of it. On the one hand it lets you despair and on the other hand you hope it will be better. Just amazing how you can feel with the guys in this game. In my opinion it shows you the multifaceted humanity better than everything else. But i think something is missing in the possible endings you can get, because of that "only" 9/10. There could be more options, more opportunities, more effects of the decisions you choose and also more people coming back from season 1. But the last one is only my personal wish, Expand
