Clementine’s character is renowned as being one of the most impactful and most beloved videogame characters ever. Seeing her entire story retold with beautiful graphics and supported by a plethora of extras feels deserved and right.

Whether you’re a fan of the game and have followed Clementine from the very beginning, or if you’ve never actually played any of the games before, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is by far the best version of the game to pick up today. Sure, you can purchase previous versions, but this one stands out above the rest with all of the fan content and beautifully horrific visuals.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series really is just that, a truly definitive final edition of the entire series. I recommend this game to every single person who may play games, even those who may not be a fan of the play-style this game utilizes. In the end, this is a definitive game not only in the genre it exists in, but it is also one of the more definitive games in the history of gaming.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series skyrocketed Telltales Games into one of the most beloved game development studios. The studio would eventually close due to mismanagement but thanks to Skybound, the series would reach its end. With The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Edition telling Clementine's entire story from her early childhood days meeting Lee to becoming a mother and guardian to an orphan child. The package also contains the season 2's prequel, 400 Days, and the spinoff series The Walking Dead: Michonne, but Clementine's journey is the star of this package. A journey full of difficult decisions and emotionally traumatizing moments that will mold Clementine into either a harden or empathetic survivor. If you missed out on The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series now is your chance to experience this acclaimed franchise in one place.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is a definitive version, but the flaws, although already known, weren't completely solved, such as framerate and lack of sync between subtitles, clicks and lines. Gameplay and graphics have evolved, and additional content beautifies the collection. Each episode has its notoriety, and I have nothing to complain about the narrative. With this series, I'm sure it will please new players and old fans.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is the best way to enjoy an adventure that has been with us for 7 years, as well as to pay tribute to Telltale. The extras and the new graphic style feel great.

For newcomers, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is an easy purchase, since you're getting every game in the series at an excellent discount. If you've experienced the game before, the proposition of going back is dependent on whether you want to experience the game again with better graphics and fewer bugs. If you're a super fan, the abundance of extras will be tempting enough to warrant the double-dip. No matter your stance, the collection still holds up, and this is a lasting example of what made Telltale stand out in the first place.

You no longer have to wait for new episodes and you may not stress over your decisions if you now know what lies ahead, but for anyone who's managed to miss the series til now, and for its biggest fans, The Definitive Series is unquestionably the best version of the seven-year The Walking Dead saga.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is without a doubt the best way to play and own these now-classic games. The visual and performance improvements are clear to see, and even if you’ve played the games to death, the special features alone make the collection a tempting purchase.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is a great collection that fans must have and also for new comers it is the best time to9 enter this amazing world of decisions, sadness and relationships. It has all of "The Walking Dead" episodes except 400 days in a pack. The enhanced graphics is not what we expected and there are a number of issues regarding to lighting and coloring. But after all this is a Walking Dead collection, how can it be anything less than awesome?!

This is easily the best way to experience The Walking Dead on a technical front. The graphical revamp of the first two seasons is impressive, the special features are a nice touch, and having all the games in one package is a convenient deal. However, it's the content you're here for and (for the most part) the games hold up exceptionally well. They may be slightly dated, but there's no doubting this package serves as a glowing reminder of Telltale's best work.

With the dust now settling on Telltale’s time in the game industry (before the name has subsequently been snatched up ready for a revamp), The Telltale Definitive Series is a celebration of the hard work put in by the numerous people employed by the company who created these games. Featuring all four original titles, the 400 Days DLC pack and The Walking Dead: Michonne, for the first time all these games, plus a slew of special features, come together to make for one impressive collection, especially given the asking price.

Newcomers to the series are very much recommended to plump for this collection, it's got everything you need and the story is excellent. Otherwise, it's probably not worth shelling out to buy everything again.

If you haven't yet played through these seasons and are interested in taking the plunge, this offers a good way to do so as long as you're aware that the series eventually runs out of steam.
