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.
Highly engrossing and utterly refreshingcannibalwombat | June 10, 2014 | See all cannibalwombat's reviews »
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!

If you are looking for an action game with lost of zombie killing and explosions then don't bother with this one. What this game dose is tell the story of a man trying to survive and keep a shred of his humanity.
This game drives home the narrative and the game is basically one giant conversation giving you multiple options on what to do. It also has one of the best moral choice systems ever in a game. you don't get good points or bad points and the right choice is not always obvious, most of the time it isn't. but for every choice you make there are consequences that carry over to the following chapters.
However where the game fails is in the actual game play. The controls are hard to use and the camera angles can make it confusing to move around. the graphics look just like a comic book's and sometimes can even look odd. however this game does what it sets out to do and that is telling a gripping story that will have you wanting more.

Make choices as you navigate through a story of people trying to survive in a world where zombies have taken over. Do not expect as much zombie killing as relationships, speculation and tension.
This is an adventure game. A modern point-and-click. And well executed.
