An incredible journeyAcidApocalypse | Feb. 24, 2015 | See all AcidApocalypse's reviews »
This game takes you through quite a journey. The episodic format works to create a pacing that would leave the game at risk of boring players if lacked. There is action and tension and a plot to really believe in. You go on an emotional journey with all of the characters, whether it's a positive or negative one for each depends on you.
The unique and lovable art style does nothing but make the game that much better. It helps to create a tone and feel unlike other games.
Overall, this is not a game to be missed.
A truly memorable gamemrignuf | Feb. 24, 2015 | See all mrignuf's reviews »
What makes this game great is not it's graphics or necessarily it's simple gameplay mechanics. It's about your actions and how others around you are effected by those choices. You will often be thrust into making tough decisions with no clear "good" or "bad" options. You must live with the results and their consequences, no matter how gut wrenching they may be.
The gameplay outside of dialogue options is rather shallow, but this is not the focus. Normally this would be a negative, but the writing and character development is so strong and I believe that's what truly makes this such a memorable experience that any gamer would enjoy.

This game is, frankly, amazing. Every choice you make feels like it has weight, and you'll find yourself agonizing over every decision. The story is engrossing, the characters are well-realized, and the situations are insane. Just don't play it twice.
A true breakthrough in story-tellingWolfeClawz | Feb. 23, 2015 | See all WolfeClawz's reviews »
Telltale games continue to deliver incredible titles using their trademark engine, and The Walking Dead was one of their first games that really helped them make a name for themselves in the games industry.
The Walking Dead, whilst not entirely related to AMC's TV programme, still gives players a real experience to look forward to, with the point and click mechanic going hand in hand with it's in-depth (and tragically beautiful) story line. Players are forced to make decisions, literally giving them choices between life and death when they thought everything was going just fine.
Due to this formula working perfectly for the post-apocalyptic zombie setting, The Walking Dead deserves a place in your games library.

It's been quite some time after this game's release, and since then it's influenced a lot of games.
The episodic format of this game has been adopted by a lot of other games, and the gameplay has inspired other adventure games, most notably the recently released Life is Strange.
The story is still strong and you can still see cosplay of the characters, precisely because the story affected them so much.
This game hasn't lost any of its edge after all this time. If you're only getting this now then I wish you the best and the most fun.
