The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode 3 Reviews
The ghost of Telltale gets one graceful and hopeful step closer to completing its unfinished business.
This episode may sometimes sprint on the way to that conclusion but it’s just going to be a few months until we find out whether or not the odd rush had a greater purpose.
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.

Broken Toys is a superbly written episode, with visuals being some of the best the series has ever seen.
The mere fact that The Walking Dead: The Final Season – Episode 3 'Broken Toys' exists is cause for celebration.
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.
Episode 3 of The Walking Dead Final Season is the most polished entry of Clementine's final run to date, jam-packed with heart-wrenching moments and intense action.
Episode 3, “Broken Toys,” has me suitably excited to see The Walking Dead: The Final Season out to its conclusion.
Uneven pacing and a slumping middle act detract from a brutally action-packed cliffhanger that duly sets up the final ever episode of Telltale's The Walking Dead.
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.
Clementine's story deserves to be finished, and this third episode does justice to the legacy of Telltale Games.

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.

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.
Featuring a sweeping narrative experience and barring a few caveats, the penultimate episode "Broken Toys" might be the best yet for The Walking Dead: The Final Season.
‘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.
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.
In the first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season since the end of Telltale Games, Clementine's journey picks back up towards an emotional finale.
The Walking Dead's final season survives the closure of Telltale Games with aplomb, as Episode 3 delivers another brutal step towards the end.
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.

An intriguing, though lackluster, conclusion.
