    As I say in all my reviews of every episode of The Walking Dead I play, if you're a fan of a good narrative and character interactions, you need to play this series. Fans of the comic and television show should not hesitate to pick this game up.

    The Walking Dead delivers a dramatic and emotionally exhausting experience that few, if any, games have achieved. Forming a close bond with the characters over 12 hours of game play makes the countdown clock for each decision even more stressful. As the psyche of each survivor has slowly been reduced to tatters, every choice has positive and negative impacts for all.

    Around Every Corner is about 3 hours long and it definitely felt like the longest episode yet. And I can't wait until the next one. As terrible as things get, I can't wait to see how it all ends.

    One of the weakest individual episodes but with the best ending by far, and one that suggests Episode 5 will be a finale to remember.

    While the impact is less than that of previous installments, Episode 4 remains a solid and well-written chapter of Telltale's The Walking Dead. Following up the chills of the last episode was always going to be a tall order, and while this entry may be free of major revelations, Telltale has done a commendable job continuing to establish such a hopeless world. At this point, though, it feels as if they're racing to an absolute conclusion.

    Breathtaking. The newest addition to The Walking Dead series is a universal acclaim by every manner. The plot and the twists of the episode isBreathtaking. The newest addition to The Walking Dead series is a universal acclaim by every manner. The plot and the twists of the episode is five times better then the actual TV series, and the character design/moral decisions are fabulous. Few times the episode left me thinking of what just happened, and how I actually influenced the chain reaction of events. The ending of the episode however, shows exactly what this game is about: twists. The people you liked - You will not anymore, and the ones that you disliked will most likely prove to be your best friends. If the Episode 5 is just as good as this one, I really do not see why this game could not be the game of the year - It easily has the best plot I have ever seen in the gaming.

    10/10 - Amazing.

I am a fan of the tv series walking dead, and telltale games has put it to Shame. The reason I think it works So much better than the tv series(and maybe the comics plz don't kill me for saying so.) is that you are completely involved in creating the situations and the resolutions to the world around you. The characters have Never been better in this game the writing was Top Notch. Gary Whitta has done and Amazing job at writing. blending humorous situations in the bleakest of times and just basically putting you on an emotional roller coaster. Also in the episode I have never felt such an amazing connection between Clementine and Lee and I have never felt so dedicated to protecting a fictional character.(No Spoilers) but the ending had me in emotional flames and has never had me So on the edge of my seat waiting for the next episode. CANNOT WAIT So if you want something original and a Huge step forward in storytelling in gaming pick it up Now. Expand

And I gotta sayTo be honest I watched this on youtube as if it was a movie. Got luck enough to find a great walkthrough by this DanQ8000 guy. And I gotta say it was an A+ game, rock solid from top to the bottom of it. A more intense experience than the last episode, and the end leaves you satisfied but hooked for the next episode. Man, they know how to do cliffhangers. Can't stand the thought how long we will have to wait for the next part. Expand

I can't really say more without spoilers, but you're beginning to see the ramifications of a lot of your choices throughout the series, and the ending for this episode has a huge twist. The next episode promises to be wild, and I hope it can live up to the hype. I only marked episode 4 down a point because Kenny is sometimes schizophrenic about whether or not I did "certain actions" with his family. Expand

There were only a few bugs and did not get in the way of the experience. The gameplay is still the same, with one new idea, first-person shooting. I did not care for it mainly because it feels so out of place. The story has you on your toes and will have some of the hardest decisions to make in the series. By the end your jaw will be on the floor. The Walking Dead: Episode 4 - Around Every Corner is a set up episode for the fifth episode, and really makes me want to play episode 4 more. Expand

Your hard earned progress is likely to be wiped by a faulty save system when you try to resume playing. And guess what? YOU CAN'T SKIP DIALOGUE OR CUTSCENES. Unbearable. Such a great game but so terribly implemented. Expand
