Fantastic Game!KrimsonAce | May 16, 2015 | See all KrimsonAce's reviews »
No other game has made me feel regret, shame, or even a real emotional attachment to the same degree that TWD has. I had an amazing experience - I made choices that I ultimately regret, that I wished I could go back in time and un do. The characters feel real, the choices impactful, and the gameplay truly fantastic. It has a couple of hiccups, specifically two instances in which the gameplay direction was confusing and took much longer to resolve than it should have. Overall, however, the game is incredibly - it had me on the edge of my seat, and it is a story telling masterpiece.
Emotional, sometimes even shockingDami90x | May 2, 2015 | See all Dami90x's reviews »
First of all, I would like to say sorry myself that I didn't played it before: - Hey man - Yo - Sorry I didn't played it before but I had a lot of hard work to do - Maaaan, do you know how much you lost? Okay I forgive you, but just because you are me. Now I can say with clean heart, this game is showing that even nowadays graphic in games doesn't has to be ultra realistic to be beautiful, graphic in this game is true art. There may be a little boring situations in game but don't worry, that means that something big gonna happen, it's good time to get wipes because you will cry not once but you won't regret it. Every character in this game has own story and in one moment they all getting together making big one. It's very easy to get into it emotional, you can get the feeling of sadness or happiness depending on your choices(you won't always know if it will have good or bad effects) like it was in your real life. Sometimes situations need good reflex to make story more tense like: "Oh, I'm just gonna sleep on that soft sleeping bag after hard wor ... OH NO .. ZOMBIE EATING MY LEG, HELP!". I'm not a big fan of telltale games but this one is very good and I would like to recommend it to every person with empathy to take a dive in this emotional river, because it isn't just a regular game, it's art.
The walking dead is a great interactive storyLonM | April 19, 2015 | See all LonM's reviews »
The walking dead is a great interactive story. I've never read the comics or seen the tv show, but I really enjoyed this game. Given the nature of this game, you should know that the narrative in this game is really top-notch quality. I've only seen one of the endings at the time of writing but the story line I followed was great. The design and stories for all of the characters are also very good. The design of the game, in terms of how choices are laid out is very good, and the point-and-click method helps to keep a high emphasis on the story. The highlighting is also good at preventing "click everything until it works" syndrome, which I have seen in other games. I found that this game has a good balance between "leaning back" and watch the events unfold, and the actual interactions the player makes. When needed, the keyboard controls for movement work well, although in certain scenes I did find that the map's camera angle meant that ties between "W for forwards" and actually moving forwards was a bit off. The graphics in this game are really nice, following the style of the comics, but still managing to be three-dimensional. Some of the graphics could have been made at a bit higher of a resolution though, especially the ones that you'll get close-ups on. The music and sounds in this game are very good in terms of ambiance, and the voice acting is also very good. This is important in a game like this, and telltale did a good job choosing voices. This game is definitely worth a buy if you want a good story, and I'm sure you'll love it if you are already a fan of the walking dead.

I have followed The Walking Dead comic for years and was definitely looking forward to a worthwhile Walking Dead game. Telltale has done an admirable job bringing The Walking Dead into the gaming realm, departing from the comic's story with a new group and following them during their own struggles dealing with the zombie apocalypse. The most important aspects of The Walking Dead, whether it be the game, the show, or the comics, has always been how each character deals with the struggles of the zombie apocalypse. Telltale does a good job developing each character's attitude and keeping it fairly consistent throughout the course of the story. Unfortunately, sometimes that falls into the realm of some characters acting more like caricatures than actual people which makes their actions predictable, and the story sometimes suffers because of it. Overall though, the story is strong, the character's personalities are varied, and it makes for a very interesting experience. Decisions are the hallmark of the Telltale gaming experience as you guide the story and your character's attitude toward the events and your fellow survivors. Overall, after playing several of the Telltale games, The Walking Dead has some of the weakest choices. You can play the game as a complete jerk or a saint, but I didn't feel like the decisions were particularly hard to make once you decided how you wanted to play your character. Still, the story is compelling enough that it helped make up for so-so decision making along the way. There are also a few stereotypical video game mistakes. One particular moment that stood out was when the characters were hiding behind a fence and needed something from the other side of the fence which was CLEARLY in arm's reach, but for some reason they wouldn't just stick their arm out and grab it. Unfortunate from a suspension of disbelief standpoint, but not a deal breaker for enjoyment. The Walking Dead set the bar for story-driven gameplay and Telltale has consistently raised that bar along the way. The Walking Dead still stands the test of time and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys The Walking Dead TV show or comic, or just a good story.
An incredible journeyAcidApocalypse | Feb. 24, 2015 | See all AcidApocalypse's reviews »
This game takes you through quite a journey. The episodic format works to create a pacing that would leave the game at risk of boring players if lacked. There is action and tension and a plot to really believe in. You go on an emotional journey with all of the characters, whether it's a positive or negative one for each depends on you. The unique and lovable art style does nothing but make the game that much better. It helps to create a tone and feel unlike other games. Overall, this is not a game to be missed.
