If you can get past the narrative dissonance introduced for the sake of agency, In Harm's Way is still a cracking entry in the season with a few super twists, a truly satisfying punch-the-air moment, and an ending which leaves you in no doubt that the momentum started in the previous chapter shows no sign of abating.

Perhaps age and the formulaic (for better and worse) nature of The Walking Dead means that it is becoming harder to really appreciate the nuances.

Telltale's latest episode puts players waist-deep in formative moments that will determine what sort of adult young Clementine is going to become.

Episode three In Harm's Way is quite possibly the most defining moment not only in season two of The Walking Dead, but it's also a defining moment in Clem's character development.

This is certainly the most confronting chapter so far, which some will love, but may put off others (like it almost did me). Clementine continues to grow, and her strength is put squarely to the test, but in other aspects, Episode 3 just doesn't hold up to what's come before.

The thought of where Telltale will head with Episode 4 will fill the mind with excitement, and if it's as good as In Harm's Way, we're probably looking at another helping of shiny videogame trophies come awards season.

Even if the player interaction has been toned down, there are still some really great things to see and do in Episode 3. It is a gruesome ride that is full of peril, difficult decisions and some great moments. If you have already invested time and money into Season 2, keep going; it is well worth it. If you haven't picked up the full season or are thinking about starting it up, do yourself a favor and do it already.

The final ten minutes or so make it worth the purchase, and I really liked where the Carver storyline ultimately went here, but don't be surprised if you get a bit bored getting to that point.

Trust me, by the end of the episode you'll find yourself reliving some of these moments and wondering if the decisions you made were the right ones.
