    The further we get from that finale the deeper it sinks in. You need to experience it. [Dec 2014, p.78]

    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]

    Short version of the review would be, if you’ve played and enjoyed season 1, get season 2 it is more of the same, some good stuff.

    Short version of the review would be, if you’ve played and enjoyed season 1, get season 2 it is more of the same, some good stuff.

    Season 2, I think it is great as a sequel. The story is good, for a zombie game, for those who don’t know the walking dead is more about how the characters evolve during a zombie apocalypse than the apocalypse itself. I believe the game does really good at that, especially for the main character, you can see how this main character has changed and keeps changing after what happened in season 1 and now, in season 2. I think very little games and, in general, pieces of entertainment achieve such good management in character developing. As I mentioned, the story is good and it has plenty of tense moments and hard decisions for you to experience and make, it is a good thrill. In terms of other stuff, I personally like the graphics a lot; it is let’s call it comic book styled. The voice acting and sound effects are pretty good as well, so basically all you need to have a proper experience.

    Another good thing is that IMO you can replay the game a few times and try different decisions as some of these have a huge impact in subsequent events.

    Overall, another good story here, if you liked season 1, don’t think about it, you’ll like this one as well. Finally, It might be worth mentioning this might not be your kind of game. Although the story is quite intense, the gameplay itself is kind of slow paced as you mainly just walk around, talk and observe, so if you like very dynamic games with a lot of action and player interaction, this might not be your thing.

    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.
