Good things: Great graphics, cool design of characters and world, great start of the story.
Bad things: Mainly it becomes very boring. The scenes become boring because of the lack of expression of the character's faces and the voices. The music is not bad but after playing Xenoblade... It is not amazing... the same song repeats over an over and it is not that good. I didn't feel any emotion in any of the scenes or the story after the beggining, so the story did not engage me.
About the gameplay...The battles seem original at the beggining but become very boring, basically you move your character near the enemies to kill them, covering sometimes... And from time to time you have to shoot with the croosbow. The strategy of the battles is so poor, no challenge at all... Summarizing... Fun the first hours of the game, then so boring...
It could have been a great game with better music, better face expressions to give climax to scenes, more challeging battles and better leveling system. Maybe too many things to become a great game. I'm a bit...
Average User Score: 8.6Apr 10, 2014Awesome as always. Short as always. Less surprises maybe, but the plot is developing very well. Interesting new characters, some bonding withAwesome as always. Short as always. Less surprises maybe, but the plot is developing very well. Interesting new characters, some bonding with the old ones. The choices still haven't got the emotional weight of the walking dead game series but I think this is more about the loneliness of Bigby and how you are going to make Bigby affront all the darkness of this world, playing him as a good sheriff or as the big bad wolf.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Mar 4, 2014Awesome second episode! After a great introduction, the plot develops very well, and the bonds with the characters begin to appear. It has aAwesome second episode! After a great introduction, the plot develops very well, and the bonds with the characters begin to appear. It has a bit better action than the first one in my opinion, and great surprise. Same length 90-120 minutes aprox. Still short I think, but this is what we should expect from the new Telltale Games.… Expand

Average User Score: 8.3Feb 4, 2014I would give it a 10 if wasn't because of the length and the release date. I think every episode of Telltalle's is a bit shorter... I wouldn'tI would give it a 10 if wasn't because of the length and the release date. I think every episode of Telltalle's is a bit shorter... I wouldn't mind if they release one each month... I think 2 hours of playing every month is ok, but less than that it's a bit frustrating xD.
Having said that, the game is awesome, less remarkable choices maybe, but the story is great, and the quality graphics, music, and dialogs are just awesome.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Dec 5, 2013Is a good game, but is far from Dragon Age or Baldur`s Gate in my opinion in terms of game play and soooo far from Telltale games inIs a good game, but is far from Dragon Age or Baldur`s Gate in my opinion in terms of game play and soooo far from Telltale games in storytelling and choices. I played this game after playing great choices games like The Walking Dead, or The Wolf Among us, and I think that is why I didn't find that part of the game amusing.
It has great music and great environmental effects. The combat system is not bad, the fights are dynamic. I like that there aren't millions of quests like Elder Scroll saga. I suppose it has great graphics for the year it was released.
This is a story I have read, watched or played like thousand times, I know that most of people think that is great, but I found a bit boring, maybe after playing The Walking Dead or reading Game of Thrones everything is different... xD
Many people say that this a mature story... I think that it is dark and there is sex in the game xD... but that doesn't mean that is mature. I agree that is cool that the decisions that you make affect the storyline... but this is not new... you can see it in most of rpgs, maybe in this game the choices are more 'mature' or more ethically complex than in other games like Dragon Age o Baldur's Gate, but as I said before... veeery far from Telltale Games choices gaming (maybe is unfair to compare with Telltale Games I know...).
The types of quests are quite repetitive. The cuts between scenes are awful. There are many bugs, and the controls are a bit unresponsive sometimes.
I think this game is quite overrated. I had probably enjoyed it more if people hadn't told me that was a great game. I give it a 7 minus 1 to counterbalance its reputation.… Expand
