I had heard that they had an excellent story. I have to agree the story for the game was fantastic. I also enjoyed the graphic style of the game. I was generally surprised by the way the story characters responded to your actions and you can create different relationships with characters depending on how you treat them. The main story remains the same regardless of your choices but the details and relationships do not. Upon completion of the game, I found myself instantly wanting to go back in and play form beginning to end a second time making the exact opposite choices. I found this to be an excellent time and a great story and in the end I actually cared for a number of the characters. Expand

    Having waited to play The Walking Dead games, I can't say I'm disappointed. Telltale games have done a great job in portraying the comic booksHaving waited to play The Walking Dead games, I can't say I'm disappointed. Telltale games have done a great job in portraying the comic books in interactive form. By modern game standards, I guess you could argue that the control over the main protagonist is somewhat crude, and you'd be right. However that is not Telltale's strength, story telling and immersion are. No spoilers whatsoever, but there's some genuine chill here and some tough choices to make. The world, characters,dialogue, music and pacing all come together to provide the player with a sense investment that makes you quickly forget the not so great movement controls. Season 1 also comes with the excellent 400 days dlc, which bridges the gap between season 1 and 2. Highly recommended for anyone that likes storytelling, choices, zombies, interactive adventure games and of course fans of the comic book or tv show. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The Walking Dead is unquestionably well-written and polished, and if you are more interested in the story aspect of gaming then this could be for you, however there are a few reasons why I cannot score this any higher.

    Firstly, the “game” is essentially an interactive novel where you pick lines that ultimately do not have much bearing on the outcome of the story. All that happens is that a few of the characters lines will change slightly based on what you say and how you act. There are mini-puzzles throughout, though these are not very challenging.

    [POSSIBLE SPOILER]

    Secondly, I get that the story is one of the collapse of mankind, but there is practically ZERO hope for the characters. I realise that some people will like how bleak this game is, but I cannot help but feel that the writing is poor in this respect. It is not a rollercoaster as such, more a continuing downward spiral of despair, and I would urge anybody with any sort of mood disorder to think twice about playing this game (seriously.) As good as this game was, I have no inclination to play the second season based on how utterly depressing this was.

    Thirdly, if you have to switch the game off, be prepared to play through a ton of stuff that you have already dealt with as it appears that saves are based on checkpoints in the story. There is also no way to skip dialogue, which is very frustrating, particularly if you end up with the nurse’s room glitch in episode 4.

    Overall, I kind of enjoyed this game, though in a very strange way and I don’t really think that I would recommend it to your average gamer.
