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.

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.

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.

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 game unlike its TV series is getting finished just in time. This is a both smart and sad (for fans) decision and now we have to say goodbye to the world of Walking Dead and all its potentials.

Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season provides the same exhilarating feelings of anxiety as you attempt to make the best decision under pressure. Following the same formula as past seasons Clementine must attempt to connect with a new group of survivors while raising a child. The choices are still impactful and the narrative full of great characters but the need to solve basic puzzles and the poor shooting system slows down much of the momentum. The Walking Dead: The Final Season provides a lot of the same tension-filled decisions and situations this series has been known for while concluding Clementine's story with a bang.

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 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.
