The Expanse: A Telltale Series Reviews
The Expanse: A Telltale Series is a welcome return for the celebrated company. Although the first episode is particularly short, it sets up an intriguing story that requires no prior knowledge of the franchise, yet will please fans of the show. Several refinements improve the gameplay, however, it doesn’t stray too far away from conventions of the genre. Most importantly though, the world, the characters and the story are fascinating and due to this, I am excited for future episodes.
The Expanse is Telltale Games' return to its natural place. A good franchise to exploit, a tremendously charismatic protagonist and an interesting turn towards the most realistic stories with an aesthetic that begins to move away from that cartoon style so characteristic of the brand. It has caught us with its interesting plot, with the tragic consequences of our decisions and as a fan of the series, which I have seen in full, it seems to me an essential product for the player who is in a similar position.

The Expanse: A Telltale Series Episode 1 is a strong start for the series and this iteration of Telltale Games.
The Expanse: A Telltale Series brings one of the best storytellers in videogames back to the forefront, producing a prequel that will delight fans as well as open up the universe to newcomers.
An entertaining finish that decisively delivers the consequences of your many decisions.
Episode 4 hits with a meaningful and novel flashback and brings a fascinating new character onboard, but the new developments are a reminder of how much was squandered in the earlier installments.
This isn't an instant classic, but fans of the series will no doubt enjoy stepping into Drummer's shoes in her time before the show. It's an assured first outing for a studio brought back from the dead and will no doubt give confidence to the studio and fans alike.
A reflective episode provides hope for the rest of the series at its halfway point.
We're one episode away from completing Telltale Games' first game back since its death and rebirth. It's woven an intriguing story that I'm keen on completing; let's just hope they'll stick the landing.
With only two more episodes to go to complete its story, Telltale shows it can still spin a good yarn. If it can competently wrap up the story threads, everyone involved should get a well deserved pat on the back and extra credits on shore leave.
Episode 2 shows consequences starting to develop from previous decisions, but whether you'll remember them is still waiting until next time.
So far, so good then, for Telltale Games. We're two episodes in and I'm hooked, wishing that Episode 3 - First Ones wasn't over a week away. Hopefully the momentum created will continue all the way to the end.
It's an okay start to the series, but with how little there is in Episode 1, more is needed to find out if the right decisions were made.
A strong opening for Telltale games in its first game back since its rebirth. They've chosen a strong IP in The Expanse to kick things off with and hopefully the future episodes will build upon the strong foundation episode one has made.
Fans of The Expanse, whether that be the books or TV show, will want to pick this game up and give it a go, as Telltale has always been impeccable at throwing players into more of the worlds that fans love.
The Expanse: A Telltale Series ends with a respective and enjoyable final episode. Overall The Expanse had a nice story in which player decisions played major roles. The game had some ups and downs but overall it marks a nice return for Telltale Games and makes waiting for its upcoming games harder.

The Expanse: A Telltale Series is a short, unexciting, and slow narrative adventure, full of unlikable characters and repetitive gameplay. Despite a great performance from Cara Gee as Drummer and a few engaging player choices, it is a waste of space.
The Expanse: A Telltale Series is a fun game that doesn't stray from Telltale's normal formula but is strong when viewed within that category. If you like the show or the books, you'll get a kick out of it.
With its stunning graphics, captivating narrative, well-crafted characters, and seamless integration into the game, the legendary studio is back and continues to redefine its legacy and narrative graphic adventure genre.
