The Walking Dead The Final Season is an incredible story and fans owe it to themselves to play it
It's so exciting to see Clementine growing up and guiding another child just like what Lee used to do. The ending is depressing but with an amazing twist. If you love the series and care about the destiny of Clementine, you can't miss it.

An otherwise strong season drops the ball at the death. Clementine deserved better.
After following Clementine for years, her final outing shows how far she has come. Sadly, a major plot hole diminishes the power and satisfaction of this conclusion
I remain invested in The Walking Dead as it nears its conclusion, now just two months away. Though the move to Skybound hasn't improved the technical reliability of the Telltale Games experience, the artists, writers, and voice actors continue to present a story that remains suspenseful, delivering some great individual moments, even if it sometimes pads the run-time to reach them. Beyond that, it's just nice to see you again, Clem.
A tight and taught story that just wouldn't let me go, not until the very end. Most importantly of all, Telltale have delivered on their original remit, to allow players to make meaningful choices that truly effect those around them.
The best possible ending for a great story about growing up, love, family and zombies. It may be goodbye for Clem, AJ and the old team at Telltale, but we wish all farewells were as satisfying as this one. Now they can rest knowing that "we will always remember that".

The Walking Dead: The Final Season is a testament to what great writing talent can accomplish. Even with the game's increasingly archaic engine and an art style that isn't quite as unique as it used to be, The Final Season offers a story that ranks up there with the original first season. It is a marvelous piece of work and acts as a bookend to one of the best gaming sagas of the decade.
A brilliant and satisfying conclusion to The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and to the franchise as a whole. Take Us Back explores evocative themes while having emotionally impactful moments as you experience the end of Clementine's journey.
Honestly, discussing many of the major narrative beats, decisions, or gameplay in The Walking Dead: The Final Season would do it a disservice, particularly for those who have been following Clementine since she was rescued from the treehouse in her back yard all those years ago. However, just know that both the development teams at Telltale, and the smaller-scale one that was resurrected under Skybound didn't let Clementine down.
Clementine's final season starts out uneven, but the second half provides enough thrills, tension and deliberation to ensure that after seven years The Walking Dead gets a decent farewell.
The concluding chapters of Clementine's journey remains as emotional and stressful as ever, but rarely feels purposeful enough to be a worthwhile finale for longtime fans.
Above all though, it's understanding of the series long history and Clementine's journey making its final moments pack one hell of a bite.
The Walking Dead: The Final Season is a moving exploration of grief, loss, choice, and letting go that gives Clementine's story the ending it deserves. Telltale may be gone, but at least they went out with a bang.
As the final season of The Walking Dead is brought back to life by Skybound, the narrative plot continues to shamble aimlessly like the zombies that inhabit its world. A few emotional chats between Clementine and AJ and a finale-prepping conclusion makes the journey worth continuing, but Skybound will need to go above and beyond to provide Clementine the send off she deserves and make the fourth and final season one worth playing.
It is gut wrenching to reach the end of The Walking Dead knowing the fate of the series, but it ends on such a high note that it feels like a privilege to take part in this journey of Clementine from the beginning to its end.
With more interaction and better player choice, The Walking Dead: The Final Season might have transcended its predecessors. But as it stands, Clem's adequate goodbye is aided by strong characters, long episodes, and apt nostalgia.
After a lot of production problems The Walking Dead: The Final Season was completed with the valuable help of The Walking Dead's author. Its the definitive end of the seven-year journey of on one of the most beloved and moving characters we have ever met in in video games.
