Spoiler alert: This review/episode recap contains major, major, major spoilers, and you should only read it if you've already played chapter four of Walking Dead: Season 2. If you want to know whether to buy it, just glance at the score and move on.
Telltale's Walking Dead is an equal opportunities killer. Long-running characters and new characters, baddies and goodies, children and adults all alike are fed into the game's meat grinder.
Each of the last two episodes has ended with a bloodbath, and episode four – 'Amid the Ruins' – starts where episode three left off, in the middle of a herd of zombies from which two further characters will never emerge.
The novelty of the Walking Dead series is wearing off a bit, and 'Amid the Ruins' lacks the tension of some previous episodes, but good storytelling is timeless
