Full of characters I really don't care about. If every character that's been introduced in this series dies by the end, I seriously couldn't care.

The first episode lacked that special something to elevate it to memorable status and comparable to the best Telltale has previously produced. At first, this second episode seems to suffer from the same flaws, but, thankfully, as the episode progresses and builds to its superb climax, it begins to turn that around. The Walking Dead: Michonne - Episode 2: Give No Shelter shows that Telltale may be able to salvage this series… now to see if it can pay off in the finale.

As a sidestory in the matter of all things The Walking Dead, “Something to Fear” brings some needed improvements to the series’ pace while also adding some truly action-packed decisions needing to be made, bolstered by the continually strong presence of Michonne as the miniseries’ main character. However, The Walking Dead: Michonne continues to suffer in other ways with a supporting cast that doesn’t quite measure up to the same level or quality as Michonne, and a story that cuts deep with tension, but still feels like it could use a little bit more heft in its impact.

Whatever your viewpoint on its faster pacing and shorter duration, Give No Shelter and the choices it presents the player as Michonne lead to one hell of a ride many will be divided on, but undeniably intrigued, by for the final episode.

Only one episode remains. The last few minutes of episode two work terrifically, putting all the pieces in place. Without giving too much away, a showdown is on the horizon. Here’s hoping Michonne’s short time with Sam and her family delivers a memorable finale.

Michonne as a character and excellent action sequences keep this second episode together, though barely. Hopefully Telltale have something much bigger and better planned for the conclusion of this miniseries.

Give No Shelter uses its strong narrative to focus on what makes The Walking Dead more than a horror story: the human condition. The external struggles between Michonne and Monroe are secondary to the internal struggles Michonne faces herself.

Michonne offers an intriguing perspective on the overcooked zombie apocalypse theme.

Give No Shelter starts out fast and doesn't quit, leaving me at a loss for words as the credits rolled. Episode Three will be interesting for sure.

The second episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne seems like a step back from the original episode, as well as its source material. Its miniseries format is just not proving to be conducive for a fleshed out tale where your choices matter. Hopefully Michonne will pull through and wow gamers and fans alike come Episode 3.

Overall I liked this episode much more than the first. It was exciting, I had a moment of shock, I felt angry, I felt hatred, I felt more feelings in this episode then anything the first provided. Maybe that’s how it was planned from the start? Though it feels like it’s building up to a final showdown and the anticipation for the third and final episode in the miniseries is dreadful.

The Walking Dead Michonne Episode 2 Give No Shelter definitely feels like an improvement over the first episode at first glance, thanks to a much faster and action packed experience. Unfortunately, little development for new character and villains prevent it from actually being better than the previous episode. Both episodes have some very good features and a few flaws, so only Episode 3 will allow us to pass a final judgement on the whole series.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 2 – Give No Shelter is a definite step up from the first episode in every way, with a short length and isolated technical issues being its only notable missteps. Here's hoping for an equally satisfying conclusion.

The Walking Dead: Michonne's second episode features cinematic combat sequences and fascinating flashback scenes, but it is let down by uninteresting characters and scenarios. The game’s final episode has a lot of heavy lifting to do.

The second episode of this short spin-off is a little better than the debut one. In the first half of Give No Shelter there's some rushed moments and a pinch of groundless fan-service, but after that the story finally thickens. Let's wait for the last chapter and hope for the best.

This episode seems a slight disappointment on the first, mostly due to the narrative hand-holding.

As Michonne continues to struggle with her ghosts she often has to deal with flashbacks, giving the player glimpses of her old life.

Michonne is a fighter and a mother, but how can a mother fight for everyone she cares about, when everyone she truly loves have gone?
