The Walking Dead: 400 Days is DLC for Telltale's The Walking Dead, and is crafted lovingly as per all Telltale titles.
This DLC has you wandering once again through the apocalypse with the same mechanics as the base game, however you get to see the world from 5 different points of view that then tie together beautifully when you're finished. Nothing really feels rushed, and whilst the stories aren't linked with Lee from the base game, you still feel compelled to finish everything and see how you do in terms of the decisions you make.
As the title of this review states, the length of the DLC isn't too long, but the price they're asking for is just right, and you'll definitely feel as though you got your money's worth.

400 Days is a game that showcases the intricate intertextual influences of choice made between Seasons 1 and 2. The content and quality of writing is well within the par set by Season 1.
Choices may not always seem so important, but you see echoes of decisions, like the ubiquitous chaos butterfly--waves of consequences in your game and the game to come.
Each vignette is short, but enough. Each paints a wonderful (ironically so) picture of the apocalypse. Telltale really hit the mark on this one.
As DLC episodes for Season 1, this is highly recommended. It is a good addition and will certainly increase the value of your game.
The best DLC i have seen for this gameandreacdc98 | Feb. 5, 2015 | See all andreacdc98's reviews »
400 Days DLC for the game The Walking Dead is by far the best addon you can get for this game, it exceeded my expectations!
This is not just a DLC, this is basically a new game added to the original, with new characters in new short stories to play, it gets you involved with the amazing stories and makes you want to play more or take new decisions in the game.
The quality of it is still excellent, with great graphics, gameplay and of course, great soundtrack! I would recommend this to all who like the original game and want a new experience added to it. Also, the people who likes the series of The Walking Dead would love to try these stories.
Overall, one of the best DLCs I have ever seen in all the games I have played!
More than a DLC, a new history !garocco | Feb. 5, 2015 | See all garocco's reviews »
The DLC is very good and very helpful for those who want to play more and play different stories. The DLC follows the same pattern based game choices and causes the player wants to play repeatedly to test the different choices. The graphics are still magnificent , and the game continues getting involved players in his plot . For me , the soundtrack should be emphasized because it is one of the strongest points of the game beyond the campaign. The gameplay is still very good and without presenting any crash. Without a doubt I recommend to all the DLC , especially those who liked the game.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a reasonable priced DLC at €4.99, it is entirely separate from the main part of the game (except for a few supporting characters were in the original game) and offers five short stories were you play as a different character each time. And when I say short I mean it, each character in the 400 days will take most people 15 minutes to finish, I found most ended quite abruptly. Each of the five short stories have you make atleast one difficult choice, some people may replay each character twice to get both endings, this would double the playtime of this DLC.
I played through each character in this DLC once, it took me 90 minutes to finish it, the writing isn't as good as in the original game, but it's still pretty good, the problem is however, you get very little time to know your character before you are forced to make hard choices, which leaves you feeling like you just watched the last 15 minutes of a 2 hour movie about that character.
I've been told that these characters return in Season 2, and this DLC provides back story to them.
My final verdict: I'd recommend players who are about to start season 2 to buy and play this DLC, so they get a nice bit of backstory to all of the characters in season 2.
People who aren't looking for backstory in season 2, I'd recommend waiting for a sale and getting this DLC at a reduced price. For people who aren't big TWD fans, this DLC just doesn't provide enough content for the price of €4.99, I'd recommend most people just watch a YouTube play through of this DLC or wait for a sale.
