Hands down one of the best games ever madexborcx | March 4, 2014 | See all xborcx's reviews »
This game is something special. Games have no doubt always been entertaining, but this game is a clear case for blurring the line between just being a game and being art. The fact that you and I are going to take away a different story through our play throughs and be able to have an engaging conversation about that is just stellar. Add to that the game itself is fun and a really amazing story, you have yourself a winning combo and its something that everyone should check out.

"Lee! Lee!" "It's okay Clementine, I'm here for you" [HTML_REMOVED]
Wow. What a ride. WD has been quite a thrill for me, with such an awesome, compelling story that really gets to you. The gameplay isn't all that SHABAM, but it does mix it up a bit, changing from the dialogue choices, critical moments, running/fighting sequences, and I appreciate that Telltale Games did that. Now this game is mostly story-driven, so I'll focus more on that. To briefly sum it up, you are Lee, a man convicted for a crime that was out of his territory, who stumbles upon a little girl named Clementine. Together, you will face atrocious and traumatic events that will forever alter your lives. The only thing that keeps you tethered to sanity is each other. With many episodes to play throughout, Telltale game's unique way of how choices affect your gameplay is truly the many things that makes WD such an amazing game. In conclusion, Walking Dead:Season 1 is a beautiful piece of work that Telltale Games has really put much effort into. With such an epic masterpiece, buckle your seatbelts, kids, we're going on a feels trip.

This game sets out to tell a story and it succeeds in every possible way. This is my personal GOTY for 2012 by far and I can't wait for future seasons to expand upon the story. The emotional connections that you build in this game will keep you on the edge of your seat almost constantly, the tension is incredible.
The art style is made to be reminiscent of the original comic series and Telltale nailed the aesthetic to a T. The only flaws the game has are a few bugs that ended up being ironed out in patches anyway. Purchase this game, it's a good 12 hours of absolutely phenomenal storytelling and you won't regret it in the slightest.
A piece of heart!Albys66 | Feb. 11, 2014 | See all Albys66's reviews »
One of the most emotional games ever tried in my long career as a gamer. TWD is the future of entertainment, you and only you are the real hero of the story, and the characters of the same live or die depending on what you choose, the forks that entrances. And all of this provides a level of involvement scary. Against this background, in this splendid product of Telltale, it should be recognized a limited possibility to explore, and the interaction is possible only when it has been decided by the programmers. But the whole thing never sounds forced nor limiting, thanks to the excellent art direction. The twists and turns and the psychological depth of the humans are both cinematographic level.Il game hits hard even without the use of 3D graphics and a thousand special effects. You return to the narration pure pleasure to turn the page (in this case, the screenshot ) and see what happens and what we combine it with our "victims". Longevity is very good, over 20 hours. No bugs to report, rescues that work very well and graphics that, despite the apparent boards comics for simplicity, expressiveness of the faces gives a really fabulous. Do yourself a favor, buy it! And do not tremble too much in front of the forks, you could die twice!
Definitely worth buyingKwydin | Feb. 10, 2014 | See all Kwydin's reviews »
The game is definitely worth every penny.
It has a great story line that holds the player before his monitor wanting to know what happens next. Music is also well fitted into this so it holds just the right tension. As well as that perfect comic like graphic.
A bit of shame is that no matter what choices you make, you will end at the same conclusion of each chapter, with only minor differences. Would be nice to have a choice that could change the ending outcome.
Overall one of the best story based games I've played.
