    Cry Wolf provides a roller coaster of emotions and a perfect ending of this mature, charming and violent story.

    Overall, it was a fun ending to a great series. Its ending isn’t satisfying at first, but it grows on you as you think about it. This is the sort of ending that has you talking with your friends for days about it.
  3. This final episode concludes the series. The episode is short but has a good tempo and we are getting a chance to see Sheriff Bigby's final true form.

    The Wolf Among Us is a noir stemmed in fantasy and (actual) glamour that blurs the lines of right and wrong. I wasn’t able to appreciate the mystery of The Wolf Among Us until the last chapter, but what a gratifying experience it turns out to be.

    Telltale does it again. The Wolf Among Us has shown that you didn't need the the emotional hook of the first season of The Walking Dead to work. It´s a different beast, more subtle, more meaty and with more to show under the surface.

    Even so, “Cry Wolf” is the end to a story worth experiencing. While not every episode has lived up to its potential, the season as a whole has left us with a world that we’re hesitant to leave behind.

    I was wrong about The Wolf Among Us – twice. The first time is when I hoped that, having practiced drama skills writing an on-rails zombie adventure, Telltale Games would be able to build something more complex and spectacular. The second time is when I thought that there would be some twist in the case of dead hookers. My failed prediction is not what vexes me; it’s the fact that Telltale just skipped the climax of the story altogether.

The many mysteries of the murder case are discovered, with a very interesting cliffhanger in the end.

    The spooky atmosphere is more present than the previous installments, particularly leading to the fight between Bigby Wolf and Bloody Mary. And that fight between them is truly exciting. There's more action in this part than the previous four.

    The directing of the fight and chase scenes is brilliant, as well as the voice acting, which really gave a great level of depth to the characters. And all thanks to Bill Willingham for the Fable comics and these characters and this world he built.

    All these things, along with the beautiful visuals and coloring, and the terrific soundtrack, have helped to create a gaming experience that i enjoyed more than any other in a very long time. Fantastic job, Telltale Games.

While the game had a few technical problems towards the end of it, I feel like everything here was very well done. The multiple endings and the way the story branches out was wonderful and well worth playing the game over again to see what happens. Telltale does a very good job in creating a wonderful story and it has made me interested in the universe itself. Love the game and the story. They just need to fix some of the bugs in the later episodes. Expand

    For those of you who are still torn between TWAU and TWD on which is better, lemme state this:

    For those of you who are still torn between TWAU and TWD on which is better, lemme state this:
    3 things make a good game, STORYLINE, CHARACTERS and GAMEPLAY. Graphics is also important but not always.
    1. Storyline: The Wolf Among Us' la noire aura makes it's storyline much more mature and unpredictable. It had a far better start than The Walking Dead but a much weaker (but also interesting) end when compared to TWD. The bonus for the Wolf Among Us is the Walking Dead is already on tv and some of the choices are already predictable. But as always the end matters more than beginning.
    Winner: The Walking Dead

    2. Gameplay: The Wolf Among Us' action-oriented gameplay is much more satisfying than that which resides in The Walking Dead. Granted, the walking dead's storyline doesn't leave much room for action but still they shudda placed more of it (like in season 2)
    Winner: The Wolf Among Us

    3. Characters: This is the deciding factor. Both games are almost identical in this aspect. The only difference is TWD characters die to easily within a 5 episode period. Meaning there isn't enough time to develop the characters. While this adds more gloss to its storyline, it depreciates it's character-involvement. Lee and Clementine are the ultimate anchors, and boy did they keep TWD atop, btu the same could be said about Bigby and Snow. The difference is, TWAU has so many compelling characters to back up it's two main protagonists(eg bloody mary, tweedle dee and dumb, mr toad and his son, colin) whereas TWD's two main characters are left in the cold.
    Winner: The Wolf Among Us.

    The Wolf Among just edges The Walking Dead, but only just. I can see why critics would place TWD of higher regard than TWAU, because most emphasis today is placed on meaningless action in games from players, a critic would be soooooo happy to see a game giving it's main focus to it's storyline and difficult choices. But whilst the Walking Dead deals with Life an Death, Black and White, The Wolf Among Us delves in those shades of grey, making it a much more compelling show

    I don't like this game; no where does it compare to twd s1. All these users are saying "it's better than twd" no it's not, for severalI don't like this game; no where does it compare to twd s1. All these users are saying "it's better than twd" no it's not, for several reasons. This episode had the murderer reveled and the way they did it was incredibly boring I was expecting you to find the murderer through clues but you don't. Any deaths are honestly too easy. I recommend twau to those who like Noir games but to anyone else.... Its kind of a hit and miss for me. Expand
