The Walking Dead The Game: Episode 3 Review

The Walking Dead

With the heartbreaking and foreboding end of episode two behind us, we rejoin Lee and the other survivors, at most, a few days later. Tensions are high as supplies continue to dwindle and a traitor is suspected amongst the group. Having survived for just over three months and watched as downtown Macon has been destroyed by both the walkers and those that thought they could help the lack of hope and food is starting to take it's toll. Zombie's are walking the Earth, how could it really get any worse?

The Walking Dead Episode 3

There are no easy choices in this game. No matter what you do it will affect the people around you and how they treat you. Most importantly, choices you made back in the first two episodes could come back to hurt you now.  Depending on who you've sided with or tried to save, or not save, in the past you have the potential to be shunned out of future plans. At least that's what they want you to worry about. Up until this point it seemed like there were several different ways this story could go but if you choose to play through multiple times and make different choices you'll still end up in the same situations and still be guided a long the same path. In many cases a character you previously chose to save over another will find their demise no matter what you do. On one hand it makes sense, obviously there has to be a main goal for the characters but when so much emphasis has been placed on the players choices and figuring out so soon how it all leads to the same place anyway it's a bit disappointing. It shouldn't stop you from playing though, the story is still incredibly well written and as stated in our review of episode one, the dialogue is a key factor to the telling of this story. Telltale really managed to step it up and keep the important parts of the game moving quickly with the time limit on performing actions and deciding what to say. Somehow, through all the violence and terror they still find ways to stick in some brief moments of humor. Not all of the choices work out the way you'd think from the phrase at the bottom. Through tone of voice and additional dialogue you weren't expecting what you might of thought was something nice or comforting to say can quickly turn into an angry hurtful conversation.
