Given where Episode 2 leaves us, I am truly looking forward to see where A New Frontier goes. Javier is a charming character with a deep backstory, and they way his family is introduced throughout the past and present leads to an immediate investment in his future. Add in some shady actions on Clementine’s part, as well as the overwhelming desire to keep her around, and I feel that TWD is back on the right track. Telltale continues to impress.
Der Comic-Stil ist noch viel kräftiger geworden, das Spiel ist 100% flüssig, lebendiger, kräftiger und einfach zeitgemäß, eine wirklich beeindruckende Leistung!
Ich bin wirklich traurig, dass Telltale schließen müsste, ich kann das einfach nicht verstehen, wäre ich Millionär, hätte ich denen 2-3 Mio. gegeben, gibt es denn keine Storytelling spielenden Millionäre? Wie dem auch sei, das Spiel ist sehr viel härter geworden, nichts für schwache Nerven, es geht nach ca 20 eingewöhnungs Minuten schon richtig ab und es erscheinen wirklich finstere Szenen.

Strong characters, thrilling story, but I expected more from the final episode. […] It’s obvious that your previous decisions have no real effect and especially the most emotional storyline lacks a satisfying conclusion.
Whilst A New Frontier doesn’t do anything differently with the gameplay, the story has always been The Walking Dead’s strength and, in this area at least, season three may provide the reversal of fortune that Telltale need.
The Walking Dead A New Frontier has a story worth telling at the heart of it, and Telltale eventually gets there, but the narrative stumbles at almost every turn. Repetitive gameplay, technical glitches, and the constant overshadowing of one character by another significantly blunt the set-up of the season’s cutting finale. The journey must continue in the inevitable fourth season, but I hope Telltale devises a better game plan for when that time comes.
I remember the first time I played Season 1, I really like it and it became one of my favorite games. I like how telltale lets you make choices and choose dialogues. That makes the game personal. While I really like Clem, unfortunately it wasn't fun playing as her in season 2 cuz she was just a kid and there's not much she could do.
This season however you play as Javier who actually is strong enough and can do a lot. He can fight big enemies & has a huge impact in story. I really liked his character and the choices I made and how story turned out at the end was very satisfying for me. I don't have have any complaints about the game other than how I couldn't save some characters that I liked. Their death seemed unnecessary. Finally the music was great as always. I love Jarred-Emerson Johnson's work.
I dont get the hate, this season was pretty solid, maybe a bit too goofy at some points but still had good characters some good story pacing, and some shocking moments that justify themselves. Whenever clementine appeared i had fun. Its a fun game however it could ve been a spin off that i agree. 8 as a game 7 for the main series of the walking dead cuz it doesnt really justify itself being a main series entry
We (eventually) start to witness the repetitivity of the Telltale series with such an underwhelming episode. I found the main character (Javi) surprisingly bland and shallow. The rest of the story features even more boring and one-dimensional protagonists. Fortunately, Clementine is not yet affected by this state of affairs. Each character represent a certain point of view of the whole situation and you simply can give them more or less power via some of your decisions. Too few of them evolve significantly between the beginning and the end.
The overall pace of the story is quite jerky as both scare jumps and turns of events become more and more predictable (and so uneffective). I had minor (to sometimes major) issues with display and graphics but let's put that on the account of my old computer. But what I just can't forgive is the pathetic level of facial expressions. Many characters have one or two different facial expressions and that's it. Even Javi's acting sometimes makes him look like a robot, or worse... a zombie! More than ever it feels like you have the opportunity the give your opinion and make decisions at the worst times during the discussions and events. For the first time, playing a Telltale game until its end was quite painful because it feels soooo long and frustrating (especially as you get closer to the end). Overall, the quality of the writing is really poor.
SummaryTelltale'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 apocalyp...
