    By far one of the worst, most boring games i've ever played.
    Characters are painfully boring and stupid.
    Dialogues are even worse - made me angry most of the play time. Action scenes are mostly redundant with no real action involved. You can collect a few items but without any real point - you can't use them and they don't make any difference in the story. They'd be better off making

    They'd be better off making a movie - the graphics are the first advantage.
    The episodes are very short - an hour of gameplay - thats the other advantage
    At the end of the 5th episode the only choice i regret is playing this game. I'd be better off staring at the black screen.
    If someone offered me to jump down the witching well or to replay the game - I'd be jumping before they could finish the sentence.

    At a first glance it seems to be a pretty well put together game. Multiple choices and consequences give the game a genuine feeling of making an impact on the game. However I am only speaking of Episode 1. The first episode came with such high hopes and promises for the series and left us the fans wanting more. Three months has gone by and not a word on Episode 2 or so much as an ETA fromAt a first glance it seems to be a pretty well put together game. Multiple choices and consequences give the game a genuine feeling of making an impact on the game. However I am only speaking of Episode 1. The first episode came with such high hopes and promises for the series and left us the fans wanting more. Three months has gone by and not a word on Episode 2 or so much as an ETA from Telltale Games. The only thing that TTG has said was that there would be an ETA on episode 2 after the holidays. They have not so much as posted anywhere online in over a month and that has left a lot of fans with souring regret in their mouths. I understand delays and wanting to put out a polished game to the fans but when the game is sold as episodes and is meant to be released every couple of months, it would be beneficial for the dev to keep in contact with the fans. Game developers need to understand that the fans make the game a success or a failure. No word from them means they could care less about the game and is making the rest of us would be fans falling into the same mindset. They have our money and that seems to be what TTG cares about the most. Expand

    The last episode is a bit disappointing, but that doesn’t change the fact that The Wolf Among Us is a very solid adventure game, head and shoulders above most of other representatives of the genre published in recent years. [Sept 2014, p.62]

    A grim, tight, wonderful story of prostitution, loan-sharking and power plays. [Issue#254, p.59]

    An at times confronting, well spun mystery and fascinating setting. [Oct 2014, p.63]
