Broken Toys is a wonderful third episode for Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and is perhaps the best entry for the season so far. With a great mix of new and returning appearances, varied action sequences, and a stronger emphasis between the dynamic of AJ and Clementine, this is a great couple of hours before the final installment.
‘Broken Toys' does a great job of setting up what will hopefully be a thoroughly gripping finale. There are plenty of callbacks that diehard fans of the series will relish, but the emotional beats keep everything grounded. Minor visual quirks can sometimes take you out of the experience, but they're not enough to derail your overall enjoyment of the episode.
After witnessing the fall of Telltale and the resurrection for The Final Season to pursue the game’s full conclusion, Episode Three exceeds expectations of the previous and sets a good path leading to the last part of Clementine’s story.
3rd episode of final season of The Walking Dead is the first episode created by Skybound. This is episode is one of the most emotional episodes in the whole series. Relationships between characters and the whole story is excellent, but the game has issues in other sections. This episode is probably worth your time.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season has had a roller coaster of a ride setting up new characters and a new environment for Clementine. With the first episode placing Clementine and A.J. in a brand new group and episode 2 having Clementine take charge. Episode 3: Broken Toys is one of the most emotional episodes in this series, providing more touching connections between the characters as they put their faith into one another for what is a suicide mission. Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode 3 Broken Toys is one of the best episodes of the series and sets up the finale with a bang.
The Walking Dead was worth saving. The usual Telltale caveats about polish and quick time action scenes apply, but this is exciting, powerhouse storytelling, packed with fantastic character work and edge-of-your-seat cinematic moments. The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 3 lines up the sights for a bloody good finale – let's hope Skybound nails the headshot.
Broken Toys continues The Walking Dead: The Final Season's interesting story and great character development while serving as a triumphant return for a season thought lost.
Telltale's final season was presumed dead a few months ago, but just like the titular zombies, The Walking Dead: The Final Season has risen from the grave to live again. It's a good thing too, because "Broken Toys" is the best episode of the season by far.
Broken Toys isn’t perfect, but its dialogue is superb, its pacing is fluid and its gameplay is fun and engaging. Stick with The Walking Dead to the end, and I have no doubt you’ll be happy with the result.
After completing the first three episodes we can say that Final Season is a worthy finale to the series. Project transition to Skybound Games was painless.

With an ever stronger emphasis on hard decisions to make that will affect how Alvin Junior turns out in the end, and a strong presence of an old returning character from previous seasons, this episode ramps things up to an exploding cliffhanger that leaves what comes next completely in the dark.
Filled with twists and turns, the penultimate episode delivers one explosive finale and, with only one instalment left to tie up Clementine's story, it still feels like anything could happen.
Broken toys is to remember especially for two beautiful central sections and for the tumultuous ending, but in the end it remains the "same" Walking Dead episode as ever.

The transition from Telltale Games to Skybound Games feels as smooth as it could possibly be. The themes in Broken Toys tend to get in the way of each other, but otherwise, this is a solid episode that builds nicely into the finale.
Broken Toys is a fine and quite interesting episode. There's tension, action, heatbreaking moments, good characters development and a lot of question that hopefully will find answers in a few weeks.
