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

    An outstandingly paced and flawlessly executed finale to one of the most memorable game settings of all time and space.

    The Wolf Among Us Episode Five: Cry Wolf is the amazing ending of the Telltale Games’ outstanding noir.

    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.

    This final episode makes the long trip worthwhile. Newcomers should take the plunge with confidence.

    It’s been a crazy up-and-down season, but the conclusion of The Wolf Among Us is a visceral, stylishly violent adventure in Bill Willingham’s brilliant Fabletown at heart, with some great storytelling aptitude to close things out.

    I'm disappointed by Cry Wolf, not because it suggests that Fabletown is destined to remain troubled, or that it doesn't overtly answer a vital nagging question, but because a few too many events are overtly manufactured to fit the plot's needs, rather than making each event feel like it progressed from those that came before.

    Can't put into words just how awesome this game has been. Liked it even more than The Walking Dead. I need a sequel, I really do.
    Here's some
    extra words to get into the 150 character limit. Expand

    Last episode of the first season of the wolf among us. Will there be a second season? Of course there will.

    Be the big bad wolf or earn the
    respect of the people? All i can say is OOOOH Plot twist. Expand

    A wonderful denouement (pun intended) for the finale. Tons of action and a interesting conclusion.
    Like TWD some choices you made have no
    effect by the end of the game (which is annoying). As a huge TWD fan and Fables fan I was very excited for this game and it definitely didn't disappoint . The characters are well written (in general) and the world is one which begs to be explored more. There are some nods to fans of the Fables books which are always appreciated. Like the TWD season 1 I'll definitely be replaying this. Highly recommended Expand

    I'll keep my thoughts to a minimum so as to avoid spoilers, but the whole of The Wolf Among Us was a great ride, with this final episode providing some very satisfying answers, with a great little twist to boot. Get it! Expand

    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 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
