    An auspicious opener for Telltale’s new series. It has flaws, and the release schedule is probably too tight for the studio to take any player feedback into account, but I have a feeling it is going to give insight into the intricate personality of its lead and deepen her fandom even further.

    It is an outstanding way of kickstarting the series even though this episode has its ups and downs. Interesting and promising, In Too Deep seems to be making way for a better second episode.

    It's nice to see Michonne as leading character now in a new The Walking Dead game from Telltale. She is a strong character. However the first episode contains some weak dialogue. But the zombies in the water are awesome.

    Telltale is great with character choices and delivering a striking painterly color palate, but all of that can grind to a halt since the hacking and slashing gameplay feels repetitive, especially compared to last year’s adventure breakout Life Is Strange.

    In Too Deep isn’t by any means terrible, it just doesn’t feel as original or as interesting as it should. It’s also quite possible that I’m simply over-saturated with The Walking Dead in general right now.

    The Walking Dead: Michonne is off to a decent start with plenty of room for improvement. Most of the new characters may feel like zombie fodder, but they’ve got some interesting personalities that will be fun to follow. Plus, Michonne may be immortal in the game, but that doesn’t mean she won’t get banged up along the way through both physically and mentally demanding trials.

    It's easy to accredit the success of Telltale's original Walking Dead to the strength of the fiction it's working with, but this flat opening salvo lacks the same nuances. [Apr 2016, p.77]

It's not nearly as good as the first episode of the first game or the second for that matter. I hope the next episode is better and captivates me more like the other games did. Telltale has never disappointed me yet! Expand
