    Telltale Games clearly has another hit on its hands and I cannot wait to see how this story unfolds… or more appropriately how I choose to unfold it.

    It’s just hard to grasp how Telltale manages to do it. Because in record time they have a game that seems if not more promising than The Walking Dead. The Wolf Among Us is a dark mystery with well-written dialogue and fantastic characters. It is game that shouldn’t be missed by anyone.

    Effortlessly demonstrates Telltale's handle on episodic content. [Issue#105, p.84]

    The Wolf Among Us shines thanks to great achievements by the voice actors, a color pallet that jumps out at its viewers and twists that grab you by the throat and refuse to let go. The fairy tale figures are portrayed so realistically, that you can’t do anything but let yourself get submerged in the unusual, American subculture of Fabletown.

    The most exhilarating moments, however, arrive care of the game's brutal action sequences.

    Telltale has once again delivered a well-written adventure, this time with an added dose of stylish noir presentation.

    While the gameplay is still second-rate compared to the story, Faith succeeds most because of its unpredictability. Even longtime Fables fans will be shocked by some of the revelations.

    "Faith" is the perfect beginning to a new adventure from Telltale, effortlessly pulling you in and making you invested in protecting these curious creatures from our storybooks.

    The characters are interesting, the writing is sharp, and the story switches effortlessly between thoughtful investigation sequences and more action-heavy scenes featuring some of the most effective quick-time events I’ve seen in a while.

    Really deep characters and awesome graphic style. If you loved The Walking Dead, you gonna love this too, it have same mechanics, but improved. Great music doing good job and fighting scenes are much more intensive, than in TWD. Im really looking forward new episodes, hopefully it will not take so long between them, as it was with TWD. PS: i haven't been so angry for a while (ending scene), great emotions. Full Review »

    Well, let´s cut it short: Ahe art design, the dialogues, the story telling and foremost the characters are extremely well done, if you judge an adventure by that, it´s a true masterpiece. However, don´t forget that the solution to most "problems" in the game are pretty obvious, and it´s quite short even for a first episode.

    However, it is still a game every TT fan can buy without remorse.
