Many consider this more an interactive movie than a game, it probably has as many mechanics as a point and click. The gameplay here is an improvement on Telltale’s previous games such as Jurassic Park. In regards to graphics, there is nothing too intensive here but it fits well with the world created.
In this world you're essentially walking between cutscenes; discovering the characters, solving some puzzles and moving the story forward as you go. Rather than pulling you out of the game with these cutscenes it draws you in by putting you in the position of making the hard decisions. While this doesn't give you much control over these parts of the game, it does give you some control over the story through your choices made, which here is the highlight along with the characters created.
Splitting the story into 5 episodes is an interesting idea meaning you can take a break between each part of the game and go into the next with some anticipation of what is going to happen next. I found each of these episodes to each be 2-3 hours long so you get your money’s worth, especially when on sale.

I am not a fan of the Walking Dead TV Series. I find the characters extremely unlikable. However this game is completely different. The characters are interesting, the graphic style works, and the game is enjoyable. Go in realising it is a interactive movie more than any kind of challenging game. Though that doesnt take away from it, interactive movies are really becoming a genre of their own, with this right up the top of the pile
A fantastic experienceBytrine | Nov. 26, 2013 | See all Bytrine's reviews »
This is one of the best RPG's I have ever played. Though it lacks the traditional RPG aspects such as side quests, loot, equipment, and free roam, it is heavily centered around story, dialogue, and literally every decision you make affects the world around you. You get many hard decisions in your journey to survive such as deciding who lives and who dies, what to do, where to go, and how to kill an enemy. Each action has it's own set of consequences and you will be enthralled in the storyline. This game was done perfectly, even during it's minor set backs that are in traditional RPGs. I strongly recommend you buy this title!
An excellent, polished gamedjlim | Nov. 23, 2013 | See all djlim's reviews »
Having got this game on sale, it has been quite possibly the best value game I've ever played. The Walking Dead is fantastic adventure game, and Telltale has definitely revived this genre. Occasionally the graphics got a little strange and it did frustrate me. But the art and style in this game is top notch.
Plot and character development really elevate this game to GOTY status, and there are moments which will take players on an emotional roller coaster.
The replay value is alright, but the plot progression is relatively linear, and it is simply the sidestories which can be altered. This is mainly what kept me from giving this game a full grade. I highly recommend this game, but I also suggest avoiding 400 Days. The Walking Dead is a better game played with just the five main episodes.

I'm no fan of point and click adventures, neither am I a fan of the Walking Dead series, but this game is still one of the best games I own. Never before have I played such an emotional game where you actually feel involved in the story, it is so well written and executed. Your actions really affects the game in more or less dramatic ways, something that makes decisions even harder and more emotional.
A zombie apocalyptic story at its finest!
