So for what it is, this game is great. I would highly recommend both the first and sedond season if you enjoy The Walking Dead, or if you just really liked some of the older point and click adventure games like Grim Fandango or Sam and Max. A bit more polish in some areas for the PS4 would have really helped sell this version, but for those of us who don’t have a last-gen console anymore it’s great to see the series arriving on the new platforms. Keep ’em coming Telltale. In the meantime, I’ll stay hungry.
There were very few technical upgrades in the PS4 version of The Walking Dead: Season One, but The Walking Dead: Season Two actually takes advantage of its host hardware, and improves upon the PS3 edition vastly as a consequence. Sadly, with no way to import your saves from last-gen hardware at the time of typing, this means that you’re probably going to have to pick up the first instalment anyway if you want to transfer your decisions to Sony’s new super machine.
Season two of the Walking Dead definitely did have its great moments, though most of these only really applied in the moment. When looked at as a whole it just doesn’t have the impact that the last instalment did. A lot of it was really, really good when taken in separation, but that is all. As a season (five successive episodes) this follow up didn’t work as well as it could have done.
