The Walking Dead: A New Frontier - The Complete Third Season
I do not regret my time with A New Frontier, but the emotional core at the center of the series seems rotten. There are seeds of greatness here, but A New Frontier never gave them the necessary time to grow.
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.
A New Frontier does Telltale's The Walking Dead series justice, giving the ending that fans have been asking for.

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.
A New Frontier has a wonderfully diverse cast and it tackles its themes with nuance and complexity. However, some inconsistent writing and recycled plot elements restrict its potential.
Cliche after cliche and shameless expoitation of the series' popularity – this is how i can sum up third season of The Walking Dead.

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.
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.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier lacks meaningful gameplay and its episodes needed greater distinction, but it still provides that same appealing Telltale drama about an unconventional family thrust into dangerous situations.
Despite its promising subtitle, there's little new in The Walking Dead: A New Frontier to write home about. A revamped presentation, new characters, and excellent voice acting make it live up to the expectations, but the traditional flaws on the technical side of things and an undeniable stagnation on the narrative one stop it from reaching the greatness of the first season.
