    While the series may not reach the same critical heights it did as with the inaugural season, things were finally starting to get interesting again. The Telltale Tool engine runs well, the art style is unique and fun to look at, and the writing has improved. If this is how things must end, it could have been much worse.

    We leave The Walking Dead on a Telltale firmly willing to make mechanical and tonal risks, nearly all of which pay off well in this episode, hinting towards a bright future we may never get to see.

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 2 lacks an intriguing plot of its own and it isn’t able to write off its great character moments and writing as part of a bigger puzzle. As is, this is mostly a setup episode. And that can work but it doesn’t work as well when there is nothing to build up to.

    After a strong first episode, the second one comes out of the gates equally strong with a couple of nods and winks to the first season. Although episode 2 definitely leaves you wanting more, the fact that TellTale closed its doors makes us wonder if this is truly the final episode to this final season. If this is indeed the case then it simply is not enough.

    The troubles facing Telltale Games, coupled with a story comprised of filler and cliffhangers, make this episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season the worst one yet.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. One of the best The Walking Dead Telltale episodes in a very long time, with a huge surprise introducing The Whispers, really didn't see that coming, and another surprise with Lilly returning from season one. Also loved how you can determine Clementines sexual preference when choosing Violet or Louis.

    Only a few negatives with a couple times the audio skipped dialogue although not sure if that's my PS4 messing up, and the ending was slightly anti-climatic considering the shocking ending in episode 1.

    Even though slower paced, the second episode of this season still carries on with the promising and nicely built plot and characters from theEven though slower paced, the second episode of this season still carries on with the promising and nicely built plot and characters from the previous as well as somewhat manages fairly with consequences of the ending of that one. What did surprise, even being speculated before, is that it comes up with a very interesting element from way back in the series past installments which was purposely left open, taking me right back the first season.
