Clementine kicks butt. Episode two of the 2nd season of Telltale Gamings' The Walking Dead adventure series may have to do with more than just this pint-size survivor of the zombie armageddon lancing undead heads as well as blasting away with a pistol.
However the long-term photo that I'm taking away from A Home Divided is of the adorable moppet swirling around like a ballcap-wearing ninja who can clearly care for herself much better than any one of the adults she comes across.
This isn't a problem for me. As much as Clem's action-hero moments pressure believability a little bit, her zombie-slaying abilities are balanced out by how much this lonely little girl depends upon the generosity of strangers, and also by a reminder at the conclusion of just how at risk she still is.
The outcome is a fantastic episode that balances activity with a story that grabs the rate from the snoozy episode one and also works as both a fascinating foundation for the season to build on as well as an enjoyable one-off story in its very own right.
However, narration is still clearing up in for the lengthy haul. Much like Clementine, we are still getting to know this new group of survivors that she hooked up with in episode one. There isn't any type of very easy compassion for the predicament of this team. Still, personalities are developed a lot more completely here.
Pregnant Rebecca is no more a one-note misanthrope. Nick isn't simply a teen rebelling versus whatever you've obtained. Luke appears like he can end up being a dependable pal, or perhaps something of a more youthful Lee alternative. Alvin and Carlos are no longer introverts.
Only Sarah remains the same, and also her childlike perspective is broadened upon in a number of scenes that make it clear she had problems long prior to the "heck is complete, dead will certainly walk the earth" things went down.
Also much better, the situation is tackling a character of its very own, as well as a cloud of mystery and also dread hovers behind-the-scenes of every little thing. Concern of other individuals as well as always taking account of where you are and also how much you can securely let your guard down with complete strangers have been significant styles in the Strolling Dead video game series, but here, whatever enters into overdrive.
Clem is entirely on her very own, removed from all of the assistance she had throughout the very first period and also also during the start of the last episode when she was still traveling with Christa. Her isolation is underscored even additionally when she satisfies what should be an old pal, just to discover that this former chum is no more the exact same person that she understood.
(Additionally, watch out for the appearance of some other old colleagues from the 400 Days episode released as a stand-alone installation last summer season.).
