Picking Up the Pace

I'm not going to waste any of your time discussing the gameplay or visuals as they remain consistent with episode one (you can check on my review of In Too Deep here). And I won't be going into any details regarding the story, as it really is something that needs to be experienced firsthand instead of letting me tell you about it. What I can reveal is that the pacing in this episode ramps up considerably, solving one of the biggest problems that I had with the first chapter of Michonne's story. The opening action sequence is outstanding, made even more entertaining by the fact that player input is somewhat limited. Now this might sound like a bad thing, but I actually like it when Telltale lets me put the controller down and watch the action unfold. Quicktime events don't offer anything that I haven't done a hundred times before and the ones in these games are relatively easy, so honestly I'd rather not bother with them at all. Just let me sit back and enjoy the eye candy, which this chapter definitely delivers.
