‘The Walking Dead: Season 2 — Episode 2: A House Divided’ (PS3) review: Wait, I wanted the knife!

‘A House Divided’ explosive from the start

When we start “A House Divided,” the second episode in Telltale Games’ “The Walking Dead: Season Two,” we find ourselves in control of our heroine Clementine is less-than-ideal circumstances. Not to say that’s all too unusual in a world of murderous zombies and ever-present betrayal, but this situation looks more bleak than normal. Barricaded in a shed with a demoralized man who doesn’t seem to value his own life anymore, Clementine finds herself having to make life-and-death decisions.

What happens next, and what follows in the rest of the latest episode in TellTale’s fantastically gritty zombie apocalypse, is explosive and engrossing, aggravating and cringe-worthy. Yet again, Telltale delivers us a masterful experience in which we discover just how dark Clementine’s path is going to be.

“A House Divided” takes a bit of a different direction that Episode 1 (click here for the review of “All That Remains”), taking the plot points first established then and exploring them in ways creative and disturbing. Which isn’t too surprising, considering just how violent and fractious this story is.
