Walking Dead: Michonne Review
Walking Dead: Michonne is another entry in Telltale’s award winning Walking Dead Series. This is a short 3 episode game and is an interesting look at Michonne's past. For fans of the series and for newcomers, I recommend this game.
Overall, the game is fantastic and feels like the other Telltale Walking Dead games. One of the biggest changes I noticed with this episodic game is that it feels more action oriented. There were several times where players could almost execute limited combos to take down the undead or humans.
The story revolves around Michonne and her companions who are traveling via boat searching for other people. They hear a distress call and gamers can guess the rest. Nothing is ever simple and nothing is as it seems, but that is how the game series goes.
Players will be forced to make a few tough choices early on. While the story is playing out in typical Telltale fashion, Michonne is dealing with the memories of her daughters. Gamers will get to take a trip down memory lane to see what unfolded and why she is still dealing with the memories.
While the first two episodes flowed nicely, I spent about an hour in each of them, the third episode was much more dialogue heavy. Not that this is a bad thing, it's an interesting change of pace. Michonne will have to make a very tough decision at the end of the game. Gamers will truly be torn.
Graphically, the game looks like the rest of the games in the series. I have always enjoyed the art style. The music fits the mood of the game, somber and forgiving. I hope Telltale releases more episodic games for The Walking Dead. I would love to play something with Rick or Glenn. For now, I will look forward to Season 3 of the Walking Dead.
Final score 4/5
