The Walking Dead Episode 2 Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

GameSpot has posted a new review of Starved for Help, the second episode in The Walking Dead adventure series. Based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Starved for Help continues the story of a band of zombie apocalypse survivors. Episode 2 is uniquely tailored to the choices players made in the first episode.

From the review:

Though the plot is predictable, it is told very well with a supreme ick factor that will leave you shocked and nauseous. The tough choices that you're faced with through action and conversation, along with regular bouts of scrambly quick-time arcade sequences of the same sort as those featured in the first game, thicken an atmosphere of apprehension. There is more depth here than in Episode 1. You take an active role in more situations now and have to think when conversing with characters or committing yourself to courses of action. Where in the last chapter Lee was something of a lone wolf keeping himself apart from his companions due to worries about his criminal past being revealed, here he is a member of a group dealing with stresses like the daily threat from walkers and the ever-present risk of starvation. The sense of a broken moral order hangs over everything and forces you to make choices between actions that can be justified for survival and actions that cross the line into barbarity.
