The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 5 review: Exit wounds

This review covers the latest episode in an ongoing season, and may contain spoilers. Players of Telltale's The Walking Dead have offered a singular, echoing criticism throughout its first and second seasons: "My choices don't matter." Detractors claim that the story is set in concrete and only...

The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 4 review: Life and Death

This review covers the latest episode in an ongoing season, and may contain minor spoilers. Death is better than zombification, but life is the best option of all. Even in a hellhole of a world; even with rotting corpses hunting you down every path, salivating for your flesh; even when you have to...

The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 3 review: Guts

The Walking Dead is getting darker – yes, that is possible – while Clementine shows she can be tougher. She's just as intelligent, clever and strong-willed as she ever was, but now she's not fighting to prove her worth as a survivor. The group she's with depends on her, looks to her for...

The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 2 review: Body count

Clementine is holed up with two factions of angry, desperate survivors. One group cowers on the floor, while the second flashes their guns and makes an example of a rival survivor with two quick, non-lethal snaps. Clementine watches the torment from a raised landing, where she's hiding with two...

The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 1 review: Oh, damn it all

The Walking Dead isn't a roller coaster of emotions; it's a seesaw. On one end sits the golden halo of the human spirit, strengthened by trust, dignity and love. On the other end slumps the shadow of death, mutilation and irrational violence. The kind of emotions that make someone lock an injured,...

The Walking Dead 400 Days review: Take five

The most terrifying thing about The Walking Dead "400 Days" DLC isn't the shuffling, blood-soaked zombies desperate for your flesh, nor is it the reminder that gas used to cost $1.98 – it's the characters themselves. The ones you play as and the ones they interact with, those whose...

The Walking Dead Episode 5 review: All the time in the world

Stay after the credits of The Walking Dead Episode 5: No Time Left. I don't care what decisions you made throughout the episode, and I don't care how many people you killed, saved or sacrificed in all of the previous episodes combined. I don't care if you played Lee as a passive leader or a...

The Walking Dead Episode 4 review: Death is only the beginning

The Walking Dead Episode 4: Around Every Corner promised us two things in the lead-up to its launch: brilliant writing by Book of Eli scribe Gary Whitta, and a dark, nigh-depressing story. The question now is if it delivers on these promises. Around Every Corner tackles the extremes of child...

The Walking Dead Episode 3 review: The importance of high fives

It's becoming difficult to write about Telltale's The Walking Dead. We're on episode three of five now and the story is climbing the rising action mountain in typical zombie apocalypse fashion: People die. Spirits break. Minds melt. It's difficult to write a cohesive review with this level of...

The Walking Dead: Episode 2 review: It's about people

As a franchise, The Walking Dead has taught me plenty: Don't use a gun when you can use a crossbow, you can't trust anyone (especially your friends), and everyone you love will die, probably violently and with little dignity. Telltale's The Walking Dead: Episode 2 - Starved for Help has added to...
