Still on the fence? Check out what some of the very first reviewers had to say...
Nerdist - "Telltale's phenomenal Fables-inspired The Wolf Among Us was my methadone, but nothing compares to the sweet rush of plunging back into the bleak, dangerous apocalyptica of The Walking Dead, and, to stick with this forced metaphor, Season Two is the Blue Sky of adventure games and a worthy successor ... It's difficult to judge All That Remains without considering that it's part of a whole, but for my money, it's a home run. Lightning, meet bottle - again."
Game Trailers - 9/10 Editor's Choice - "The first episode of The Walking Dead's second season may only last an hour and a half, but it doesn't waste a single minute. Within one scene, Telltale will make you feel scared, hopeful, shocked, and repulsed, only to have the next several scenes do the exact same thing."
IGN - 8/10 - "Not enough games are willing to pose provocative, contemplative questions like this, and it remains what makes The Walking Dead special ... I'm more invested in Clementine now than I’ve ever been, and I admire her believable independence and resolve."
Newsarama - 10/10 - "Let's make this as simple and clear as possible: The Walking Dead Season 2 is a must-play game. Telltale has shown an expertise above and beyond anything they've done before, and Clementine is the most interesting playable character in a video game this year, if not beyond."
Escapist - 9/10 - "Season One was like tossing your soul into a thresher. If All That Remains is anything to go by, this second season will burn the very heart of you."
Mashable - "It's more like a high-stakes drama than ever before, and there was no moment that took me away from the fear of something - human or zombie - coming around a corner."
Machinima - 9/10 - "Immediately after completing season 1's No Time Left, and after wiping away the tears, I was desperate for answers: I needed to know that Clementine was safe — all thanks to Telltale Games' great storytelling prowess at making captivating characters. Season 2 seems to be going in the same direction, in a more brutally direct way. There's so much more I want to talk about, but that would spoil the experience that awaits you."
Joystiq - 9/10 - "The Walking Dead isn't a roller coaster of emotions; it's a seesaw. On one end sits the golden halo of the human spirit, strengthened by trust, dignity and love. On the other end slumps the shadow of death, mutilation and irrational violence ... Perched in the middle of this seesaw is Clementine. She is the balance, representing everything worth fighting for, worth decapitating for. Worth dying for. Clementine is the humanity in all of us"
Game Informer - 8.5/10 - "Once again, Telltale refuses to pull any punches; the violence isn't softened just because Clementine is a child. I cringed more times than I was expecting during this episode due to some of the brutality, but that’s exactly what an episode of The Walking Dead should make you do."
The Verge - "putting you in control of Clementine has turned All That Remains into perhaps the most intense episode yet, with horrible decisions to make and some truly gruesome scenes. The gameplay formula hasn't changed at all, but the emotional stakes only continue to rise."
