EGMR writes: "The Walking Dead’s penultimate episode Amid The Ruins not just betters the heights reached by the previous episode, but actually is one of the best Telltale has ever done. It has it all, and finds that sweet spot between paying off after previous episodes and setting the stage for the finale, which it does brilliantly. Overall, Telltale has created one of its most well-rounded episodes with Amid The Ruins, and I’d even go as far as to say that it deserves a standing ovation. I’m confident that the finale will live up to expectations, although it has a hell of a lot to do if it wants to be better than this episode. To that I say good luck, Telltale. It’s going to be great to see how the last chapter unfolds, but for now let’s just appreciate Amid The Ruins for the stellar piece of entertainment that it is."
