I think it was a step backward from the first episode.
While the first felt like a true old school adventure with a nice share of exploring and inventory puzzles, this one felt more like a traditional Telltale game, too linear, too easy, scarce inventory, etc.
I always knew what i had to do next; when i picked something it was a matter of seconds before i knew where i was gonna use it or what to do with it.
I hope they scramble things a little bit more for the next one.
It was a shame because it was supposed to be longer, and indeed there are many location to visit, but it's always too obvious what you had to do in each one, there is no real exploration, you just go somewhere being pretty sure you know what to do.
