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.

This DLC was interesting in the sense that you could see how other people, besides Lee and the gang, were trying to cope with this messed up situation! You play as five different people with their own unique experiences! Consequences of the base game may be seen! You may see some familiar faces! Strangest of all, is that some npc's seem to be involved in 2-3 of the stories, so technically you get their perspective as well! Finally, your decisions made at the end of each chapter will affect the ending(400 days after the outbreak)! Of course it does.....it's The Walking Dead!!!

I really like the walking dead, the 400 days not so much.
First of all its really short, second it has to multiple storylines which come together and it is just not as good a story as the first part. Second the end did not do it for me.
Didn't feel my money worths, tho if you buy it on discount is not to bad.

It's so good.I was really glad they thought of something for us to play while Season 2 comes out and i love it.You take control and make decisions of 5 characters which are unique and very interesting.The story takes place in the first 400 days of the zombie apocalypse and you play as 5 characters and see how they survive the horror that has happened.You will meat some familiar characters if you pay attention.Overall this DLC is worth the money and the time.
