Another good Telltale Gamecoldrefreader | Dec. 1, 2014 | See all coldrefreader's reviews »
I got the game, started playing it immediatly after it got installed and the minute i started it i knew i won't be disappointed. The thing with Telltale's games is that they never disappoint. The Wolf Among Us in particular has a really good storyline, and in the way you act/respond you change every bit of it and how you're seen by the others. The characters are really interesting and well-created(a whole bunch of them), graphics are also made in a good and unique way. One thing i found really good is that the music actually adapts to the atmosphere really fast and in a good way. The best thing tho is that you have multiple choices of how to end the game and show off what your character really is. TL:DR: Play the bad cop or the good cop and everybody will remember everything you did.
Telltale has done it again.winsquare2 | Oct. 10, 2014 | See all winsquare2's reviews »
One of Telltale's best. Once again, the use of comic book style graphics really highlights the characters physique and makes the environment relatable to real life. The story is fluid and managed to keep me at the edge of my seat after every episode.The cliffhangers at the end of each episode were really interesting as well,especially the finale.
Best of all,the decision-making truly tests one's character and morals.Play the bad cop, or the good cop?Every action will effect how Bigby is perceived by his fellow Fables.
In conclusion, a must-have game for the fans of incredible story telling.Expect plenty of gory deaths and a shocking ending to this masterpiece by Telltale.

The weight of every choice lingers in every action you do. You'll be surprised at what people will remember, and be even more surprised at what happens because of those decisions.
That's really the weight of the whole experience though. Even the comic was rife with decisions having to be made by various people (the biggest, perhaps, was to flee their world for the world of the Mundys and live here with us). The comic's world was really reflected well by the treatment of the story.
And while we're talking about the comic, I really have to mention the art. The whole feel of it, from the very first intro sequence to the very end, radiated a life from it that those familiar with the comic books will love. The whole noir feeling and the dark and heavy lines gave every setting and character a distinct look to them. I couldn't keep my eyes away from what was happening.
Telltale had done the whole "choices-bearing-on-your-future" thing with The Walking Dead, and I think that this is a refinement of that of sorts. You can see it in the almost immediate repercussions your decisions create in your interactions with people. And the way it collects data and shows you what other people also chose, give you a nice feedback on the kinds of people playing the game.
In all, this is a game you will want to get. Story, design, gameplay, it practically has everything—it just needs you now.
First Tell Tale gameJNKRedsox | Sept. 4, 2014 | See all JNKRedsox's reviews »
this was my first TellTale game so i did not know what to expect when I first loaded it up. At first, it was very different since I had never played a game in the comic book style but as the story progressed, I felt like I had to continue playing to find out what happened next. The Story is great, not as engaging as the Walking Dead was but overall it is worth playing. You don't get as attached to the characters as you did in The Walking Dead making a character death not as emotional but you do realize the impact of the character missing. Overall it gets a 91
Fantastic story with more than one character you can fall forIgotboomed | July 29, 2014 | See all Igotboomed's reviews »
For a short review. It is the best TT game I have played, the story is more emotional than Walking dead series for more wys than one, you should all know that it bases as a prequel to the comics called 'Fables' if i am correct, which is about fairy tale fables leaving their world and into the reality world, to survive in New York. So it makes it more emotional to see once known happy stories, turn very badly in Wolf among us, you get more freedom of gameplay than some other TT games i have tried, and the dialog / voice acting is so believable, that you could just sit back and watch the game because of how believable it is. It can both be face pasted and laid back, also you seem to find an attachment to more than just the main character, which isn't often. The soundtrack alone is damn beautiful, kind of reminded me of a deep dark 80s movie. Anyway, it is very much worth the buy and see what happened next for all the fairy tales we watched as kids
