Summary

Episode 5 beautifully wraps up a season of spectacular, emotionally deep, and memorable chapters. The Walking Dead is one of the best downloadable games of all time and, given the way No Time Left made me feel, it would be unfair for me to ask for a better conclusion.

We like

  • The most emotionally striking episode yet
  • Wraps up the season beautifully while leaving just enough open to the imagination
  • Clementine

We dislike

  • Ends on a cliff hanger that absolutely needs to be explained in the future

(continued from previous page) ...out, and even humorous at some points. That’s right: you laugh and cry in Episode 5. You can’t ask for more in a story-driven adventure video game.

No Time Left wraps up this story very well, but there are still some loose ends that haven’t been tied up. What’s even worse is that a brief cut-scene is played after the credits, which leads season 1 to end on a cliff-hanger. This isn’t a problem if we’ll learn more in the future, but Telltale hasn’t given any details on which characters and/or storylines will be making an appearance in season 2. If the ending of season 1 goes on unexplained, then that’s a bad thing. I need to know what happened.

The journey is over, and throughout it, I learned to love, hate, and even fear these fictional characters brought forth and made so real by Telltale’s take on Robert Kirkman’s ‘The Walking Dead’ universe. From Episode 1 through 5, I was hooked, emotionally invested, and blown away with how much I actually cared about Clementine. 

The Walking Dead is one of the best downloadable games of all time, a statement I have no problem making. Being the best example of episodic gaming to date, I implore you all to give season 1 a try. It’ll take you for a ride.
