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.

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!
