Heart wrenching

Funtaine | April 16, 2014 | See all Funtaine's reviews »

When you sit down to play The Walking Dead season 1, you either have no expectations or you base them on your knowledge of the universe. As a fan of the comics but a detractor of the television series, I had mixed feelings going into this game. I was not disappointed, in fact, the game went beyond my expectations and I prefer it even over the comic I have read for years.

The gameplay is not adrenaline pumping. It's mostly calm except for a few action scenes, it lets you enjoy the carefully crafted areas and keeps focus on the character interaction. You form your own playstyle as the lead character Lee, from who you side with to how you treat your deuteragonist Clementine.

Except for a few minor glitches and bugs, this game is fully enjoyable. I'm giving it a 92 rating, because it fulfils all my desires except one: It has some bugs and those annoy me, but do not ruin the game.

I would recommend this game to anyone interested in zombies or just adventure games.

Emotional

Esikimo | April 15, 2014 | See all Esikimo's reviews »

At first i was skeptical about buying The Walking dead because I really never played a point-to-click game. After playing for about 30 minutes I was already really into the game and did not want to stop playing. In this game you will feel like the choices you make matter which is fun and heart breaking at times. The gameplay is okay, but what makes this game great is its story. This is the first game that had me almost in tears. So in The Walking Dead Season 1 you play as a man named Lee Everet. He was convicted for a crime and on his way to jail and then the story begins to unfold. Lee is around to protect a young girl named Clementine. Clem was waiting for her parents to come home, but Lee knew better and promised her on thing. That one thing is that he would take care of her. After playing trough this game I was amazed, sad, and intrigued. This game left me thinking about the story for days. If I were you and I liked adventure games with strong story behind it and don't mind the point-to-click I recommend this to you. I give this game a 95/100.

Gripping story.

An absolutely stunning game. I really never thought I would get this emotionally invested in a game until I played this. You come across some very tough choices throughout the chapters that enables you to craft your own narrative.

Many times I found myself questioning the actions I took, debating whether or not it was the right thing to do or if I should have taken another path.

It is one of those games where you really find it hard to stop playing because it always leave you wanting more.

Great story, meh gameplay

UltraJake | March 8, 2014 | See all UltraJake's reviews »

I realize most people aren't buying this specifically for the gameplay, but it's certainly something a game should work on. It's mostly just moving your mouse around until you see a white circle and/or QTEs. There are a lot of choices to make that have smaller effects on the story as time goes on. The voice acting is pretty good and the characters are diverse; there are assholes, there are cowards, there are leader types, etc.. and they stay true to this character. Naturally this will mean conflict, and you happen to be the man that gets in between this. They remember how you side on issues and deal with things for future reference, so they'll have some things to say or will act a bit differently depending on these actions.

While these do make a difference, the differences are not quite as great as one would hope. Hopefully this is improved in Season 2. But if you have an interest in Season 2, you'll want to play this so you get to have your own personal touch on the story.

Hands down one of the best games ever made

xborcx | 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.
