Apr 25, 20123Extremely Boring Quick Time Event Game!
Sadly as with Jurassic Park, all you get here is some Quick Time Events, that leave you wishing you really controlled your character. You also have to choose your responses in a timely manner before the timer runs out, as well as mash the button repeatedly to fight, and then to deliver a final blow, hit the right button just once!
This is not L4D at all! You really have no control, other then predetermined walking, and picking some predetermined comments to characters. Players, these days, really do prefer to control their characters and have real options when in battle, sadly this is not the case with this game. It is a throw back to the 80's when we had point and click adventures, such as "Leisure Suit Larry". So you will find yourself clicking and watching, clicking and watching, and really nothing more.
No Camera Control can lead you into blind spots. It also may appear you have a sandbox to play in, but sadly movement truly is really right to left or left to right.
Artwork, comes off very comic book which is nice for this type of game, and the music is moody enough. Facial Animations can be a bit strange at time, and responses to questions don't always make sense, and leave you wondering what just happened. Also you may think you have a Sandbox, but you don't.
Sadly this game could have been a nice tie in to the Comic, if it would have allowed for true openness as well as true control of your Character, but it does not. If you are in the mood for more of a Click the Comic Book kind of game then you may enjoy this, Sadly for the rest of us, the flaws and lack of true control make this a game to pass on, certainly at a price of $5.00 a chapter, or even the discounted price for a season pass is not enough!

It's not so long that you get bored, and it's not so short that you feel robbed with the cost, unlike a full retail game which can outstay its welcome. The Walking Dead Episode One is a great experience which makes an overused genre interesting once more and tells a nice tale along the way. Hopefully the next episodes can keep the momentum going.
