Critic Reviews for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier - The Complete Third Season
Telltale's The Walking Dead continues with its third season, A New Frontier, which shifts the story to a new character and a larger scope. Unfortunately, our new hero spends time fighting for the spotlight with series mainstay Clementine. In addition, the pacing is fairly fast, giving characters little room to breathe. Telltale reaches farther with this season, but stumbles in equal measure.
It's a solid third season for The Walking Dead, but we've seen so much better. Cheap plot devices and inconsistent tones in the writing hurt the overall quality of the narrative, and the Telltale Tool continues to show its age in the worst ways. And, for diehard fans, Clementine will still find a way to steal the show from the new cast.
Telltale games are always great money for their value. You're essentially buying a couple of movie tickets but get a much more personal experience. Combined with Crowd Play, the value goes up, as you can enjoy the game solo and later share it with a friend while playing together.
Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier is going to be no more or less than what you expect, for both good and bad. It's great to see a new engine bring Telltale up to more modern graphical standards in ways that only improve the storytelling. You probably know by now if you're interested in what Telltale is selling, but A New Frontier is a great place to jump in.
