Haunting, in both the ghostly and the emotional sense.

8.5 / 10.0 - Molemen Must Die!

This game would be funny if the reality of it wasn't so terrifying.

Unfortunately, this episode's strengths are all in superficial places. Nobody comes to a Telltale game looking for technical prowess, and plot is only a tiny part of what makes a good story. I hate to say it, but Above the Law falls flat in the places that matter most: the characters and depth that underpin everything else. Without that, the episode is particularly forgettable, which doesn't bode well for an episodic series that's already struggling with its release schedule.

Divide is a really good game when it's playing to its strengths. It takes a familiar, played-out sci-fi story and uses mechanics and interactivity to give it a fresh, insightful spin. It's not as nuanced a take as this sort of story needs, but you can't argue with how well Divide's approach works at its best.

The best Dragon Quest game gets bigger, but deserves a better port than this.

An interesting fresh start for The Walking Dead, but it all feels a bit too familiar.

Not so much a sequel, as the second episode in an epic saga.
