    Just like most TV shows, the second installment of this emotional journey through the post-apocalypse can’t keep up with the terrific premiere. Much of the blame lies with the poor cast of uninteresting characters. Some logical errors in the last episode’s story don’t help either. Yet, with a captivating heroine and some spectacular moments of pure terror and horrifying live-and-death-choices, Season 2 is still an easy recommendation for any fan of The Walking Dead. Also, this time the ending actually changes depending on Clementine’s choices.

    Still a well-told, atmospheric and oppressive adventure.

    Overall, I didn’t enjoy The Walking Dead: Season Two as much as I did the first season. The game still works well and has high production values, but the storyline doesn’t make as much sense, especially when everybody — including the zombies — can’t tell the difference between your eleven-year-old character and an adult.

    An uneven season finishes on a high. [Nov 2014, p.110]

    Intense adventure with difficult choices that will leave your head hurting. But in a good way.

It is an enjoyable and engaging story, and it's nice to be around (actually playing) Clem, who remains one of the most memorable characters in gaming history. As usual, the game mechanics suck badly, and as you'd expect, there's not a lot of control over situations. - You are always at the mercy of happenstance, or other foolish adult choices, otherwise the story (like the TV series) would never progress - you'd always be armored and fortified properly, rarely facing dread danger because you'd thought ahead. But that's the nature of a story-driven game. The writing is excellent (much better than the TV show), and voice acting is superb. Facial animations are well done and the graphical art style is wonderful. As many others have written, the deep emotional impact just isn't there; you never (or only slightly) connect with any of the characters. The hands-down best sequence of the game only proves that the first season was far superior at that. This game essentially admits it can't compete with the first, in particular, Clem's connection with Lee. In one of the optional endings (thankfully I didn't choose it) the story tries, but epically fails to try to reproduce that heartbreak. But it is totally unbelievable and just doesn't hit the note.

    The game is a good sequel to the previous season. It is not as good as the first one but still a great game.
    The gameplay feels like the creators wanted to push more action and quick time events into this story based formula, and I can't really tell whether this was a good decision.
    The story itself feels a little less engaging. It does keep you thrilled for almost all of the episodes but it also more predictable. When you land in a peaceful moment, you know things are just too good to be true and that something is going to happen that is going to ruin the whole situation. But it is still a great story full of characters that evolve in a direction that seems justified.
    The game ends with one of the hardest decisions I had to ever make in a video game and leaves me wondering if I did right.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Yeah, it's a pretty decent game. The quality of the visuals, audio and general presentation have been improved, but what everybody cared about The Walking Dead: Season One was the story. And the story here still is engaging, and there are hard choices and everything that made the first game great, but Clementine doesn't really work as a protagonist, at least not to me. It kind of breaks the immersion to see an 11 year-old child act like an adult, whereas if the zombie apocalypse was real, she was probably going to get herself killed within the first months with zombies. Oh well, since they killed Lee in the first season -I marked the review for spoilers, you were warned-, they should have moved on to another group of survivors, or at least scrap Clementine as the protagonist.

    Comme d'habitude, c'est bourré de QTE très cons et de choix de dialogues en temps limité, des ersatz de choix puisque la majorité d'entre eux n'ont aucun impact significatif. L'interface à la manette est très perfectible, les graphismes sont dégueulasses et victimes de ralentissements, les voix sont en anglais et les sous-titres mal présentés. Ce n'est pas une BD, ce n'est pas un vrai jeu, c'est une sorte d'expérience bâtarde qui ne cesse d'échouer, partout.
