Episode 3 of The Walking Dead is an excruciating, horrific experience that continues to linger well beyond it play time, and is easily the best the game has been up to this point. Saying that the decisions you have to make throughout are unenviable would be putting it so lightly as to make it seem comical. Other chapters had life or death decisions, who would live and who would die, but in chapter 3, those decisions are so much harder. In some cases, it's not whether who will live or die, sometimes death is inevitable, but your actions will affect your relationship with those who do make it. When choosing between two characters, as you have in previous episodes, it's easy to simply side with or save whichever character you like more or whoever seems to be acting the most rationally, but when you are faced with two terrible choices involving the same person, that position feels even less enviable. The only complaint I have with chapter 3 involves a specific story detail, I won't get into it (it's the scene on the side of the road, for those who have played), but it feels like the developer was tightening up some loose ends that ultimately made a player driven decision from a previous chapter feel less significant. Ultimately, it's a fairly minor problem in an otherwise masterful chapter.
