    Telltale's award-winning and chart-dominating The Walking Dead series returns with its third season "A New Frontier".

    Continuing the emotionally powerful story-telling seen in Seasons One and Two, we return to one of gaming's most favoured characters - Clementine - a young girl who has grown up amid the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. We see her story through the eyes of Javier, a young man determined to find the family taken from him, and via playable flashbacks from Clem's past telling the story of how she came to be on a quest for vengeance. In A New Frontier, players will discover what the world is like when civilisation begins to rebuild, and what sacrifices it will take to make society work again.

    It's a strong season that manages to tell a gripping story and offers plenty of dangling threads to keep you invested. [Aug 2017, p.86]

    A New Frontier won't be the best Walking Dead Season, but it sure has perfect writing, awesome characters and Clementine makes a come back.

    Telltale stays loyal to its roots to the last consequence. Although it offers some new characters, the truth is not all of them are as charismatic and the franchise isn't yet on par with the first season. Even so, A New Frontier will delight the usual Telltale fan, taking no risks in gameplay mechanics but making every choice meaningful during the final moments of the five chapters.

    The Walking Dead: A New Frontier may not always bring fresh ideas to the table, but what it does bring contains a lot of heart and charm. The cast is incredibly diverse, giving the spotlight to a Latino-centric cast but containing characters from different backgrounds and walks of life. Although some characters are inconsistently written, they all manage to be compelling enough that together, they create some of the most interesting moments without needing the help of Clementine. Clementine herself has established in A New Frontier that she is more than worthy of being one of gaming's most beloved female characters, displaying a growth and complexity that few female characters in the past have been allowed to have. With the series finale releasing next year, I hope Telltale Games pushes the boundaries of what she and the series itself can do and be.

    The Walking Dead’s third season finale does what it has to do to tick all the expected boxes, and while not as high as the series has been, it’s still more than solid.

    The Walking Dead: A New Frontier has a good opening and it introduces a new protagonist in a cool way. Unfortunately the story keeps getting worse, the characters more irritating and the grand finale is an utter disappointment. This series needs a dramatic overhaul - here you'll find only a handful of memorable moments and lots of mediocrity.

    While the first two games were top notch masterpieces, this one is a set back for some.
    While I enjoyed this game very much, the "unavoidable events" that happen here just hurt.
    You know that no matter what you do, some things will happen, which were fine in the first two games, after a lot of tragedy you'd like to have at least the possibility to "save" some things and people.
    It is however the harsh reality in the world this game is set in.
    I still enjoyed this a lot.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game on its own is pretty solid however when compared to the other seasons it’s hot garbage. You spend the entire game being a cuck. Clementine in this season is very good however and it’s clear telltale spent a lot of time on developing her character. Forgettable characters, lazy writing and all round blandness of this game makes it one of the worst additions to the walking dead series. Expand

But, season 3 just felt unnecessary. The game should've just followed Clementine as the main main character instead of Javier. I mean all the decisions were easily for me to be bias in support of Clementine so it didn't feel difficult since we know Clementine's heart. It just felt unnecessary to see Javier's story. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is just out right awful! The characters are bland, boring and just bad. Nothing interesting about them. I know that in the previous games the choices didn't matter that much but they mattered at least a little. In this game they don't matter at all. The ending is not satisfying what so ever. The art style looks horrible. It's ugly! The blood looks like red paint and the character model's are **** Clementine is reduced to a side character for god's sake. The "villain" is bad and no matter what you do, he will turn against you and die in the end. Carter in S2 was great because he did not over stay his welcome. In the previous games you were able to move around relatively freely and interact with people and environment but in this game it's reduced to bare minimum. You can only do that once in episode 3 and same with episode 5. There is nothing redeemable in this game. It's an unworthy sequel and a failure as a game. Overall a huge disappointment. Expand
