One of The Best Story-Telling Games In Video Game Historymrminecrafter1 | July 25, 2014 | See all mrminecrafter1's reviews »
The zombie theme is a bit saturated, but Telltale has made it better. The story is based around Lee, the character you control, who is forced to fight off the zombie apocalypse while protecting some little girl who happens to save his life. While the zombies are a danger, the people who you meet are even more dangerous. Choices you make tremendously impact the storyline and also affect how other characters view you. One of the best stories in gaming history. The visual fits the game nicely and doesn't draw attention away from the gameplay or story. Gameplay consists of dialog choices, QTEs, and the occasional shooting. It's not too great or bad but the main selling point is the story. The controls are a bit wonky and the camera is a bit weird, but it still is playable. The soundtrack is fantastic as well as the sound design for the zombies for example. Overall this is one of the best games out there.

This game looked and felt really spectacular. While it's a little hard to say it's "the ultimate game" simply because it doesn't have a lot of replay ability (for those of us with small attention spans at least), it's actually pretty cool to see in action. The choices you make are so crucial, and seeing what they end up doing is even more insane.

I'm not a watcher of the Walking Dead show or a reader of the comics, so when the video game came out I was apprehensive, However, after I had heard almost universal praise, I knew I had to try it. What I got was one of the most emotionally deep, soul-crushing gaming experiences of the past few years.
The story is a gripping one, telling a tale of a man and a young girl struggling to survive in a zombie-infested world. Riddled throughout are tough choices you have to make which permanently alter the trajectory of the story. The five episodes of content allow for you to connect with the characters, making it even more devastating when they inevitable die a horrible death. With unexpected twists and turns over the course of the game, the Walking Dead is a fantastic game that anyone should play.

I have never really liked point-and-click games as it always feels like you have so little control over the game. Fortunately, The Walking Dead is different, where every decision you make can have repercussions later on in the game. Many of the decisions are tough ones, and as an avid watcher of the TV show, this ties into The Waking Dead universe very well.
Each of the six episodes is well written and the story leads up to an epic and emotional conclusion. It is a game I will remember for long time.

I've never been one for point-and-click adventure games, but boy did I love this one. The interactive elements are very simple and not executed with particular panache, but that doesn't matter!
This game is all about the story and the characters. It's paced incredibly well, and not just by virtue of its episodic structure. I played the whole game from start to finish once it had all been released and it was gripping. I found myself really caring what happens to the characters, and whilst I gradually realised that actually the decisions you make don't make a massive difference, I still thought carefully about each one I made.
The events are constantly surprising, the losses hit hard, it even brought me to tears at one point towards the end!
This game is a real experience and one I would recommend to anyone with the vaguest taste for video games and the capacity to use a computer!
