The Walking Dead: Episode 4- Around Every Corner Review

​I probably say this every time I do a review for this game but it’s worth it in every regard. Telltale Games really hit the jackpot big time with The Walking Dead video game and it doesn’t utilize any over-the-top action or massive explosions to get the job done either.
