The Walking Dead: Season 2 – Episode 3: In Harm’s Way Review


Carver is a messed up dude. While the concept of overlords is not new to The Walking Dead universe, Carver’s twisted brand of compassion separates him from similar figureheads. Some are able to see through his front, but a surprising number of his captives have clearly binged on his Kool-Aid. With Clem and the other survivors now captive in his compound, they must find a way to escape without getting lulled into a false sense of security.

There is a palatable sense of oppression that permeates throughout this episode. Carver forces the gang to help out his “community” in different ways, which clearly doesn’t sit well with the group. In particular, Kenny is constantly coming up with half-baked plans to get out of this mess, which sometimes gets him in big trouble. Even though most of the tasks that Carver has you do are fairly mundane in nature, I still couldn’t help but feel like a prisoner myself.

As a story, Episode 3 is as tight as any in the series. My only concern with what went down here was the general lack of control you get in this particular episode. I know at times in the past, the games tried to give you too much to do and the gameplay got sloppy, but I feel like I did very little in this episode. There seems to be a fewer number of opportunities to take control, and those moments are very restrained in nature. In the long run, this may work better towards telling a tighter story, though it also felt even less than usual for this type of game. Having said that, season 2 continues to be a great overall experience and one that is currently better than its predecessor.
