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.
Emotional rollercoaster.winsquare2 | Oct. 6, 2014 | See all winsquare2's reviews »
The greatest adventure game with the greatest story.Here's why. The comic book style graphics of the game were good.It managed to highlight the characters expressions and emotions.The game also managed to catch the father daughter dynamic of the games protagonists, Lee and Clementine.And of course,the decision making.The game forces you to make important decisions thus creating your own story.In my opinion, the decisions were really hard and more than often I could relate to any of the characters in the game.Each character's story was well written and when I reached the finale, I couldn't help but just feel empty inside.
Overall, the game's powerful story-telling combined with the many difficult decisions the game forces you to make certainly makes it a game worth buying and experiencing.Sale or no sale, you just have to play this game.And then cry because of the amazing story.
Fantastic Story-tellingswordmaster56 | Sept. 28, 2014 | See all swordmaster56's reviews »
An absolutely fantastic story. It never gets boring and there's little negative to say about this game. The really only negative is the choice system, which manages to be both amazing and disappointing at the same time. While you are unable to alter the flow of the story and you're pretty much going to experience the same overaching plot every time, it is amazing how even seemingly insignificant choice like a simple dialogue options in a trivial conversation is sometimes remembered in latter episodes.
An absolute must-play for every fan of good story-telling who can accept that gameplay is rather limited.
