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.

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.

This is my second TellTale Game so I knew what to expect from them. From the moment the game started, it had my attention. TellTale really knows how to tell a story. You instantly get attached to the characters and when they die, you feel like you have lost someone very close to you. It is very saddening but engaging since the very beginning. This game is definitely worth a play

Ever played an RPG and wondered what would have happened if you had made a different decision? Regretted it? Then this game is made for you. With short episodes and many checkpoints you can easily load the game and play it differently, and trust me, it's got a lot of replay value. It will leave you breathless. This is TellTale's masterpiece. Maybe best game on the market at this time.

This game is impressive! Even though I played both, to tell you the truth, this is what I preferred more. The story is more serious, sadder and heart aching. Lee is also the best character in walking dead! Graphics: Seems decent, but really kind of beautiful Sound/Voice Acting: The sound does inflict the emotion of sadness in you, and the voice acting is really good!
