    Each episode so far has had its good parts and bad parts- but each time, it's something different. It's been inconsistent, and I don't think it can keep my interest if it doesn't settle down and find a groove for itself. The lack of focus on Lee/Clementine is only forgiven because of the extra focus on a good story twist at the end- but I really hope they find a balance in the future, which would truly make the game compelling on a level that Telltale hasn't done before. As of now, it still feels like a work in progress.

    Games like The Walking Dead are rare, and if you've played the first episode you'll be compelled to pick up Starved for Help, but prepare for the possibility of frustration and at worst, incompletion.

    I could almost bracket a mark for Telltale's belligerent tardiness, but they're forgiven on account of such a stellar addition to their newestI could almost bracket a mark for Telltale's belligerent tardiness, but they're forgiven on account of such a stellar addition to their newest game series. Episode one was, surprising, well executed and left me starving for more; and while a little late to the party, episode two pushes the positives of the first even further. More complicated choices, more emotion and a bigger sense of 'this is your life' make this episode more powerful than the first. Yes, it has it's hiccups and no I don't understand why there was such a long delay but Starved for Help is an excellent follow up to episode one and was enough to convince me that purchasing a ticket to the season pass was more than worth the sixteen quid admission tag. Bring on Episode three, and please don't take so long this time! Full Review »
