The Walking Dead: Michonne - Season One
Top Critic Average
The Walking Dead: Michonne brings little fresh to the table and most of what it does Telltale's done better before in previous seasons.
It’s great to explore the background of one of the comic’s more popular characters, but doesn’t significantly push Telltale’s games on from their previous highs.
Whether it was because of the shorter format or because the developer was tied to comic canon, The Walking Dead: Michonne doesn't quite hold the same emotional resonance as Telltale's own original take on the series. But as a Michonne story, it does a great job of providing a window into this character's fractured soul.
After a rocky start Telltale manages to (mostly) right Michonne's ship by bringing the focus back to the mental anguish of its titular character
Afetr a wobbly start, Michonne's mini-series returns on the right path. This last episode is, literally, What We Deserve: a story focused on the characters and not on the fan-service, a touching tale of revenge and forgiveness.

The Walking Dead: Michonne is an entertaining return to the post-zombie wasteland and manages to cram quite a lot of well-written story in a relatively small amount of time.
While the idea of a Telltale miniseries is a welcome and novel one The Walking Dead: Michonne suffers because there’s already too much Walking Dead in the world, and also the invulnerability of Michonne means you never worry about her the same way you did Lee or Clementine. Nevertheless the story has some good shocking moments, the Silent Hill-like hallucinations add some much-needed spice, and there are some interesting choices despite Telltale not really going far enough with them. It’s a welcome diversion for sure, but let’s hope Telltale have something more imaginative for their next miniseries.
Important, eye-opening, beautiful, and heartbreaking.
Fine - but disappointing for fans of the game series; thanks to a lack of new ideas and low character investment.
The Walking Dead: Michonne should satisfy most fans looking for another excuse to visit The Walking Dead universe, however briefly.
