Powerful and exciting

shaunmcp | Aug. 9, 2014 | Review of The Walking Dead

Having not watched the Walking Dead show, I was pleasantly surprised the story in Tell Tale Game's iteration was unrelated. That said, The Walking Dead lives up to all of both the gaming community and show watching community's hype. The story is truly engaging and at times very tense, the decisions very powerful and the characters well written. It WILL cause tears at points, and I was very pleased with the length, which was long enough, but did not outstay it's welcome. A very tight, well designed experience.

My only complaint, which is minor, is that some of the "puzzles" may be too easy. But the clear focus of the game is the story and narrative choice, and in this respect it knocks it out of the park. Fully recommend.
