The Walking Dead: Michonne - Season One
Top Critic Average
The Walking Dead: Michonne is a fast paced TellTale Story bringing you a very popular character straight out of the comics. If you are an achievement hunter/trophy hunter than this will please you as it is only 3 episodes and each one is short with everything being easy to unlock. The series starts off rather bleak, you know the zombie apocalypse is ongoing and you are just surviving day to day with your crew.
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.
There are quite a few things that make The Walking Dead: Michonne worth the fifteen dollar investment. The solid narrative and always interesting characters provide a fantastic backdrop to further flesh out the world, post-outbreak.
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.
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
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.
The Walking Dead: Michonne brings little fresh to the table and most of what it does Telltale's done better before in previous seasons.
Important, eye-opening, beautiful, and heartbreaking.
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.
