    For fans of Telltale’s storytelling and The Walking Dead games, television series and comic books; The Walking Dead: Michonne is an emotional journey that comes highly recommended as we all wait with eager anticipation for Telltale to produce the third season of The Walking Dead.

    Telltale puts one of the most well-known characters of the original plot as the main character of this spin-off. Even with some great moments as well as a nice general scheme, it feels like a lost chance to offer something really important, although few players were expecting The Walking Dead: Michonne to be something new. Even so, Michonne is charismatic enough to keep you interested all the way through the three chapters, being the most valuable asset of the game.

    The miniseries format has its charm, but Michonne fails to live up to the superb franchise. [July 2016, p.71]

    While not an outright disaster, this offshoot leans heavily on the past while misplacing all the elements that make Lee and Clem’s tale so compulsive. [August 2016, p74]

    As thin as the walkers you're outrunning and with some glaring flaws, this unnecessary spin-off is ill-suited to Telltale's strengths, only exacerbating its weaknesses. [July 2016, p.80]

    For the first time in Telltale's history the studio choose to make a mini-series based on their biggest hit, The Walking Dead.

    For the first time in Telltale's history the studio choose to make a mini-series based on their biggest hit, The Walking Dead.

    For this game we will focus on Michonne a well-known character for the ones familiar with The Walking Dead universe, which is a good choice considering that she's rather mysterious and therefore we want to have more information on her. The series start slowly with a very conventional first episode that will not surprise gamers from the previous Telltale's games but episode 2 and 3 really stood up with big decisions that have a great impact on the story (like who lives and who dies). The character of Michonne is very well done, and the cast of side characters varies from very cool to very expected, it is clearly not their best story, but not a bad one neither.

    Technically, it may be the best looking Telltale game so far and I didn't encountered any bugs during my playthrough, very good job on this part.

    Finally the length, and that's my main issue with this game each episode will last about 1 hour which is way shorter than the other series (usually it's between 1 hour and a half and 2 hours for each episode) and given the fact that they are, proportionally, at the same price-tag I fell like the game is overpriced.

    In conclusion if you're into the interactive stories genre, The Walking Dead: Michonne will most probably satisfy you without blowing your mind but I'll advise to wait until the game goes on sales before buying it as it's pretty short for the price.

    Maybe it was the anticipation of a game featuring one of the best characters from The Walking Dead that made this such a disappointment. MaybeMaybe it was the anticipation of a game featuring one of the best characters from The Walking Dead that made this such a disappointment. Maybe it was the fact that while I would like to say "I don't need my zombie games to be all about action and killing," in actuality, I couldn't stop wishing I could cut through hordes of them with a katana as the beautiful and amazing Michonne. The story seemed much more clunky than the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, and while it seemed like it would be exciting to play as a known and well-liked character like Michonne, I ended up being the most disappointed that it wasn't Season 3 instead. Part of TWDs appeal is not knowing what happens next. So, taking a middle part of someone's story, when you know they will survive, takes away some of the tension and drive. Little reason is given to care for anyone who actually has something at stake. As a fan of the comics, show, and other games, I would say you could pass on this chapter and be just fine. Expand

    Michonne is a super short 3 episodes long spin off of TWD in which we control Michonne recovering from a trauma while slaying walkers with cool QTE scenes and taking some decisions that will affect some NPCs.
    The gore level and the atmosphere are really good. Special mention to the opening theme composed and performed by the rock band Dorothy because it's awesome.
    On the negative side, the decisions and character writing are between poor and mediocre. Also after the bankruptcy and dead of Telltale the servers are down and you can not compare your decisions with other players.
    If you like TWD, do not dislike other teltallte games and you see Michonne with an aggressive discount give it a try, it will not change your life but it's enjoyable.

And to be honest, the only adaption I felt captured the spirit of the comics was 2012's Telltale's The Walking Dead Season 1. and I feel like this game did an OK job. It was certainly nowhere near as good as S1, but It was OK, average, serviceable. To be honest, It's really sticking out like a sore thumb that the main writer and directors behind S1 left, because this game holds bar nil tension, or quality. Much like most games nowadays, The Walking Dead: Michonne is average, and not worth a millisecond of your precious cash. Read the comics, or play the excellent Walking Dead Season One, but don't play this. Telltale is finished, and everyone, even Telltale themselves, know it at this point. Expand
