An Amazing, but Simple Adventure

greendayrulestc | July 7, 2013 | Review of The Walking Dead

It took me a while to actually begin to boot up The Walking Dead. I purchased it back in December, but could never get around to it. Boy, do I feel stupid. Right when you start up The Walking Dead, you're in a police car, accused of a crime you may or may not have committed. It's a great start to the game, as in the apocalypse, your previous life means next to nothing. Then, the gameplay begins, you're just shot into the world when the police car swerves out of control. You have to figure out how to break out of the car, and this is where the "adventure" part of the game begins. While puzzles are fairly simple throughout the game, that's not what you're going to be caring about here. For the most part, you're going to want to explore every detail about the characters. Instead of just solving the fairly simple puzzles, you want to talk to all the characters, to get every bit of dialogue. My only gripe with the game is a typically TellTale problem, lip-syncing. Oftentimes, it's off, but it's overshadowed by this awesome story.
