The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a bonus episode to The Walking Dead: Season 1 and introduces us to the characters that will have prominent roles in Season 2. This is a short DLC that takes place over 400 days from when the apocalypse starts to around the time when Season 1 ends. It does not deal with any of the characters we grew to know in Season 1, but instead serves as a prequel to Season 2, introducing us to the characters that will be staring in that season. It is a must buy if you enjoyed Season 1 and intend on buying Season 2, as choices made in this DLC episode effect how Season 2 plays out.
Good link between season 1 and 2RGsSeveredHand | June 22, 2014 | See all RGsSeveredHand's reviews »
400 Days follows the stories of 5 new characters. This means the emotional side of this game is lacking as such little time is spent on each character. That being said, all the characters have interesting stories which are affected by season 1 and affect season 2. 400 Days is interesting as it shows the zombie outbreak from many different perspectives. I only wish that more time was dedicated to each character, but who knows? Maybe these character will return in season 2 and if they do 400 days will have enriched their characters and made making decisions about them even harder than others in the series.

This DLC is just fantastic. Telltale once again impresses me with such quality.
You really gets involved with each character shown, although the game itself, you also evolve much with the main characters in this DLC thing evolves enough.
Curiosity and the power of choice makes things get even more interesting. I can not speak much if not end up giving spoiler and nobody wants that right?
VERY worth buying.
If you have not played any of the main chapters, then buy them all just to be able to enjoy this wonderful and captivating story that Telltale has given us.

Telltale outdid themselves again! They made the perfect little link between Season 1 and Season 2. With no Clementine or the rest of the gang in this part, it follows a few random people's stories from different periods of time during the zombie apocalypse. Even though they are only a few short stories, you actually care about the characters.
I hope that they are involved in the second season in some way!
This is 100% worth the money... played it about 4 times to see as many of the story combinations as possible!

400 Days is not meant to be the total emotional wringer that Season 1 was. It isn't trying to draw you in deep to a single character and experience. As such it won't have the same impact as Season 1 but that's fine because it wasn't supposed to. I think the problem is calling it Season 1 DLC when in reality its more of a bridge between seasons. You play 5 different, but intertwined, stories that introduces characters you are likely to meet and maybe play as in Season 2.
Really the impact will just be delayed. When you're playing Season 2 and you know from experience a characters back story it gives a lot more weight to their existence, or lack their of. In Season 1 some of the early deaths didn't have a big emotional impact because we knew nothing about the character. If you play 400 Days that will change in Season 2. An early loss of one of these characters will carry some weight since you'll feel like you know them and will have formed an opinion of them. That being said there are still a couple of of those signature Walking Dead moments, showing how good Tell Tale is at this since they were able to set them up in only 15-20 minutes.
If you are planning on playing Season 2 then I highly recommend 400 Days. It will wet your appetite for Season 2 and and should make it even more enjoyable, that brutal, visceral Walking Dead enjoyability.
