One thing Telltale's episodic games are best known for is their stories. It's never about having the fastest reflexes or even a keen sense of deduction. It's about making tough choices and seeing the consequences of those decisions play out in a deeply involved plot. In The Walking Dead: Michonne, that formula ends up being a double-edged sword. For fans of The Walking Dead, it's a unique opportunity to explore one of the series' most popular characters, learning more about her history, filling in some gaps from the comics, and seeing her interact in a new setting with new characters.

Michonne is a strong character, and it's great to see her take the spotlight for a while. The problem is that this particular Telltale game series is only three episodes long. Plus, unlike in previous games, fans already know that Michonne will end up returning to her original group at the end. Knowing this, you never feel any attachment to any of the other characters, and it ends up taking a lot of weight out of the decisions you make. That's not to say The Walking Dead: Michonne is a bad story; it's just hard to get invested in something that feels like little more than filler.
