    Telltale have put a dense tale on offer, red in tooth and claw and tantalizing in its player-driven possibility, and the second episode is already overdue.

    The Wolf Among Us is a must have iOS experience that delivers the total package that only leaves you wanting more.

    The Wolf Among Us lures players into a fairytale-based murder mystery that has them hooked throughout the entire first episode of a five episode series.

    Another engrossing and well-written character-driven drama from Telltale. An opportunity for more varied gameplay has been missed, but it's a strong start to an interesting series.

    It doesn't quite have The Walking Dead's emotional weight or instantly relatable characters, but Episode 1 of The Wolf Among Us is a fun, intriguing opener for what promises to be a macabre supernatural noir thriller.

    The Wolf Among Us isn't an evolution of The Walking Dead formula, nor does it have the emotional heft of the Bafta Award-winning series. But that shouldn't stop from diving into this colourful and engaging exploration of the grim side of fairytales

    The Wolf Among Us is an extremely compelling, mature mystery that constantly plays with your expectations. This is a strong introductory chapter, but it’s far short of the whole story.

Best part is that you can pick up this first episode for free. It's a good start to a fantastic story, however it is very much an introductory episode. There aren't many choices that mean much here and not too much exciting happens with the plot.

    However all that changes with the second episode and overall there's enough here to still make it quite good. So if you're curious about the story and are looking for a good game on the go then pick up this first episode. It's free so even if you don't like it you won't have missed out on anything.

    However I would be shocked to find that you didn't like it. It's an excellent game, and while this first episode isn't the strongest, it's still good enough to pull you in for the excellent ride that follows. My total score for it is a 7.5/10.
