The Walking Dead Game Season 2 Episode 2: A House Divided (Steam Store)


When Clementine and her new friends have to find a new home, she runs into a blast from her past.

Now she has to choose between her old life and her new one.

For those of you who haven’t played the game, be warned that there are spoilers. I said earlier that Clementine gets a blast from her past and that comes in the form of Kenny. Not only does Clementine have to choose between him and her new friends, she also sees how much Kenny has changed. As for how, let’s just say that losing your wife and son in a zombie apocalypse doesn’t do much for your mental health. Let me tell you that Kenny’s not the only one affected to such a degree. Nick also shoots a good person out of fear and anxiety and Clementine’s the one who has to convince the dead person’s friend to forgive Nick. Characters from 400 days make an appearance in this episode and if I had known that they would be signing up with the bad guy, I wouldn’t have been so determined to recruit every single one of them.

The game play is the same as always. You explore scenes and examine various items, sometimes adding objects to your inventory. During cut scenes, you choose what you want Clementine to say or do. Make sure to do so before the time runs out, unless you don’t want Clementine to say anything. Keep in mind that what you choose has a tremendous impact on the story. You also have to participate in quick time events where you press the right button to make sure Clementine comes out of the zombie apocalypse alive.

When you’ve finished the game, you can see how your choices match up to the other players.

This game is addictive and intriguing. I give it 9 out of 10; shocking but didn’t get the emotional impact the last episode got out of me. Of course, it would be hard to top having to kill a dog.

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 1: All That Remains (Steam Store)

Lee’s dead and Clementine’s all on her own in an unforgiving world.  Can she find allies that will help her live to fight another day?

As you can see, the main character switched from Lee to Clementine.  Now you have to see how everything that’s happened has changed the little girl that Lee saved.  Let me tell you there is one scene involving a dog and I was bawling so hard that I had to stop the game for a while before I could go back to it.  Oh, and remember when I said that the decisions you make in 400 days influence the storyline in season 2?  So far, I’m not seeing how but I’ve only played the first episode.

The game play is the same as it’s always been.  You pick dialogue choices for the main character, explore the scene and collect items for your inventory.  Sometimes you will have to make difficult decisions that influence the storyline.  You also get to see what others picked in their play through.

This game is addictive and intriguing.  I give it 10 out of 10; as I said earlier, it made me cry.
