    This episode is a dire reminder of how the cruelest monsters aren’t the undead, and that the worst is always lurking around the corner.

    After a fairly subdued second episode, In Harm's Way cranks things up a notch and then some. This is tense, unforgiving and utterly brutal stuff - Telltale at its finest and a breathless reminder of what makes this series so brilliant and unique.

    The Walking Dead: Season 2 so fascinating. Clementine is living in a world that is far from black and white, and her decisions reflect the shades of grey she herself is growing into.

    The Walking Dead: Season Two - In Harm's Way is one of the best episodes of Telltale Games. Great plot, amazing villain and classic hard decisions to take.

    Arguably the best episode of this season so far. [Issue#113, p.86]

    After a quiet first and exciting second episode, Telltale goes all the way in Episode 3 - In Harm's Way . Despite the lack of puzzles and minimal interaction, this episode will leave you amazed and overwhelmed. Telltale still knows how to captivate with sheer narrative power, yet the question arises: are we still playing a game?

    I was ready to forgive a couple of rough episodes as long as things got rolling by the midpoint, but with only two installments left, it seems unlikely that The Walking Dead, Season Two will be able to muster anything that season one didn't already do better.

    This increasingly dark and bleak looking series gives you good taste of the Walking Dead universe that Kirkman had designed. I find myselfThis increasingly dark and bleak looking series gives you good taste of the Walking Dead universe that Kirkman had designed. I find myself wanting more and more as the series continues to put this poor girl into a world where she must grow up quickly and try not to loose too much of herself in a world increasingly devoid of humanity. I felt some of the choices in the game were not really options, more teasers like with the first season. Something bad will usually happen even if you tried your best or made different choices.Nonetheless I look forward to playing through this game over and over like I did first season. Expand

The story progresses, quite fast. There weren't many action sequences in this episode. The game gives you a solid TWD experience. A little short, and no hubs for character development, but other than that a excellent expansion to this Season. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The worst episode so far in the walking dead series. The plot makes no sense, why not just kill bill (you will do it anyway) then take over the place.. Instead you have to draw attention of the zombie herd and fight (or bypass) through them and then do what and go where?? Why the hell you want to draw attention of thousands of zombies just to escape from one crazy man and this so called prison? Sure the writers make it that way like the herd is inevitably heading to this place, but it is just lame writing IMO. When I first saw this place at the end of last episode I thought finally we can have some serious drama and interesting conflicts, but then the place just fall apart over night. We know almost nothing about the place and people there, what a waste of opportunity. The story progress too fast and goes nowhere. Expand
