Review:

The Walking Dead… So it took me a while to get back to completing this series. I didn’t know about the final season and I heard a lot of negative reviews about the New Frontier. I wanted to try out the Michonne season and the Final Season so I got this definitive Edition collection.

I’ve already reviewed season one and two since I’ve played them back in 2018. I don’t quite remember the choices I made back then though. So I did play them again. The first game was just as heartbreaking as ever, however (My) Lee and Kenny weren’t on such good terms, as they were in my first play-through.

In season two, well it was heart breaking as well and Clem had more responsibilities. I was very curious to see how things would turnout after the ending of the second game. Of course both games were a bit depressing since you keep losing people. You can go back and read my review of the second and first game.

The New Frontier was fun to play the main character wasn’t bad, however Clementine’s development was a bit scary. She’s more brutal and unapologetic. Javier was trying very hard to change his ways and become a better man. I liked that aspect of the story. I also liked how when we meet Clementine its a completely different dynamic with her. You don’t know if you can trust her. Which I found to be interesting but at the same time if felt like it didn’t add much to the series.

Season 4 the Final Season was my favorite by far. I also found it to be the scariest… and not because of the Zombies or anything. So in this season you play as Clementine again and you’re raising AJ, the baby from Season 2. The scary part is that AJ is listening to everything you tell him and doing everything you do. That realizing of how much kids pick up from adults or people around them freaked the heck out of me. I was literally shocked by every action AJ made. I kept going like.. what the heck type of monster did I raise… It was freaky. That aside, I liked the Idea that Clementine is finally surrounded by people around her age it was adorable and heartwarming. I also loved that they included the whisperers there… It finally felt like the game is connected to the comics and the show.

Michonne part was kind of disappointing… I wished that it was just something to watch instead of having choices. the story is good but I would’ve liked it more if it were a comic, since none of the choices were consequential. which made the game feel like blah…

All in all the definitive edition is a great way to get into the game its totally worth it. You get to explore all 5 games and enjoy them.
