When TellTale Got It's GrooveFarenhiet | Aug. 17, 2015 | See all Farenhiet's reviews »
After attempts to elevate the adventure game genre to a more engaging, emotional ground, TellTale finally hits. Hard. From the moment the game starts in the first episode players will understand how much input they have in the story, and how each action in the game is narratively driven. The relationship and interactions between the player and other characters is very well done. Beyond a character in the first and second episode, the player meets everyone at the same time the main character does. This does a great job at building relationships and even chemistry between the player and the supporting cast, and this is crucial for the narrative to function. It allows the player to be invested in characters and have more complex feelings for others, which all factor in when the game forces you to make a decision involving all the people you've been spending time with. The decisions don't actually have a great, story changing effect. They usually have minor effects and none of them lead to a particularly different experience. This doesn't matter, as the weight and the intensity of the decisions are felt when the player has to make them. This is what makes them so effective. With five episodes full of content and a hearty amount of life-and-death drama between excellent characters, The Walking Dead is one of gamings best narrative experiences that everyone should try at least once.
The best of Telltale.Furrek | July 23, 2015 | See all Furrek's reviews »
When I think about adventure games I think mostly about mystery and crime themes. Or fantasy. But zombies? Yeah, that's a great idea. Most of you probably know The Walking Dead - there are comics, there are tv series. In my opinion, The Walking Dead game is the best of all of this. You don't need to watch tv series or read a comic to enjoy this game. Hah, it's even better if you don't, but probably 90% of gamers or zombie lovers already did that ;) In my opinion, The Walking Dead from Telltale is what I truly can call an adventure game. A modern one. In past we had lots of great adventure games. But in modern gaming... not really. Buy it, and play it, because it's a truly masterpiece of adventure genre.
Interesting and inmersivePlayTyrant | July 10, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
This game is a mixture between graphic adventure and a horror game, but its brighter side is the story. It's very inmersive, you'll find yourself internally debating in quick decisions that will determinate your destiny. It's as cool as that. Also, the visuals are very good, the comic-style feels great even if you're not used to it at first. Get it!

The game that rebooted the Telltale formula. It's an example of how well episodic video games can tell stories if done right. Of course, with all episodes released, you won't get to experience the community that forms around the "wtf happened there" or "what do you think will happen next" conversations, but nevertheless, The Walking Dead Season One offers a great story with the perfect payoff. It's basically a point-and-click with a much better pace, so don't expect much action, but it's a great game to spend your weekend on. It's like watching a movie, but better.
Great Story & Puzzle gametixepower | July 9, 2015 | See all tixepower's reviews »
For what it is, it's great. That's why such a good score. This is a story being told to you in an interactive way, xbox controller is the best way of playing it on pc. There are some simple puzzles and quick time events, but the story is so good that it doesn't matter. If you are busy working everyday and just want to relax for a few hours, this is the perfect game for that.
