Back in the summer of 2017, when Telltale Games revealed that they were developing a brand-new season of their iconic Walking Dead franchise, it was practically an expected event. The series was the one that had put the then indie-size developer onto the map thanks to clever characterization and a riveting, emotional story between two characters, Lee and Clementine, and their journey.

As a result, when it was announced that this new season would be actually be the last in the franchise, it left fans both impressed and saddened by this bold choice. The developer had just announced that they would be closing off what was easily one of their most iconic franchises. As a result, it left fans eager for the first episode’s release in order to get the first taste on how Clementine’s beloved story would come to a close. However, those fans may have to keep on waiting due to a rather shallow episode with poor filler in between pivotal moments. The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – The Final Season is a meager and rather stupefied experience, that may revolutionize the style of gameplay that Telltale has created over the years thanks to a more modern third person camera angle and have an exciting set up for future episodes, but isn’t able to sufficiently stand on its own due to its shallow story.
