An amazingly gripping storyGugi | Jan. 28, 2015 | See all Gugi's reviews »
This game is amazing, the story is extremely gripping and emotional. The gameplay is a point and click adventure and feels a bit plain at sometimes. But i personally think it fits perfectly with the zombie apocalypse theme.
The walking dead is an amazing tale that tells the story of Lee Everett. The game is not focused around the gameplay, but around the story. This is the most gripping story in a video game i have played in years.
Gameplay The gameplay is plain and simple, it's just a point and click adventure game. Even though some people might not like this rather slow style of game, i think it fits perfectly with the zombie apocalypse theme.
What i liked The story in this game is simply put, amazing. When i was done with the game i was completely speechless, all i could say was "Wow....." The characters feel alive, cause they are so well written and acted. You don't like a character, you LOVE them, and if a character does something against you, you hate them with a burning passion. You feel like you are there, and you are experiencing every thing that happens.
If you are looking for a game with a gripping story, then i would definitely recommend The Walking Dead.
A bizarre combination of variability and inevitabilitynpiersma13 | Jan. 9, 2015 | See all npiersma13's reviews »
Let's be clear on something: this is a game you play once.
That's not because it's a bad game. I loved every minute of it. It's simply because it's a story that can only be told once.
While advertised as a choice-based game, The Walking Dead is not truly about choice. In the end, the story will be more or less the same. You are constantly forced to make split-second decisions and in some cases choose who lives and who dies, but the core plot is still the same. Where this game truly shines, however, is in the way it portrays those choices. In a world where every decision seems meaningless, do our actions truly matter?
This game is not about over-the-top action or gore or even horror. It is a story, and a beautiful one at that.
TellTale Games Does Not Make Good Gamesmikenotcaptain | Dec. 4, 2014 | See all mikenotcaptain's reviews »
TellTale Games tells incredible stories. It is in their name, they "Tell" an amazing "Tale". They by no means make cutting edge innovations in the gaming industry. They do however do what they do best and take you on an adventure. You play the role of Lee, a history teacher who was destined for prison for killing a senator. The rise of the dead knocks you out of the hands of the law and the first person you find is Clementine, and that is where the greatness of the game begins. It begins with your relationship with Clem. This game takes you on an emotional roller coaster that the Walking Dead show cannot, because you are making the choices. The Walking Dead game is almost perfect, the only criticism I have from my experience is that it is secretly linear. Yes, you are given choices, but your choices always lead to the same destination. I understand why this is production-wise, but I felt at moments that I was powerless to choose the outcome. Otherwise, this is an amazing experience that I would suggest to fans of the Walking Dead show and non-fans alike.
Brains, all over the place!Rinkashikimo | Oct. 28, 2014 | See all Rinkashikimo's reviews »
This was the game that showed me a little about myself that I didn't know. It puts you in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and makes you make decisions that you wouldn't even dare make in the real world. The story line is amazing and the characters are all (and I mean ALL) very well made, both their animations and their voice acting that is. This game is huge when compared to other point-and-click adventure games and it really shows the struggle of a group fighting for survival on a world where the enemy should be the zombies (but are the other humans). It is also the first game that made me cry at the end, it's really an amazing experience.
Great experience.Eperiod | Oct. 15, 2014 | See all Eperiod's reviews »
TellTale's engine has greatly improved. The visuals are great, but you still get the occasional "hiccups" with character models and animation. That said... the story is phenominal. Every episode had me on the edge of my feet. The voice acting and character development is spot-on, and the progression is smooth.
The sound design and soundtrack really pull the whole experience together, with chilling gory sounds when someone gets attacked to the shrills of the music when something's wrong.
A must-play for fans of point-and-click adventures. With all the episodes ready to go, you can dive right in. Don't have any expectations that this has anything to do with the show or comic books, this is a stand-alone experience, and a great one at that.
