    The game is even better than the Bill Willingham's original graphic novel series. The Wolf Among Us is a showcase of first class storytelling. [Aug 2014]

    Overall, I was a little disappointed that Telltale Games couldn’t come up with more puzzles for The Wolf Among Us, but otherwise everything about the game is first-rate.

    A fantastic, morally ambiguous detective tale that sometimes struggles to make its interactivity meaningful and fun.

    The Wolf Among Us is yet another good game from Telltale Games. One major flaw is dismissing some characters - that's the reason the first season of The Walking Dead is and will be a better offering. Everything else - from the atmosphere to the storyline - is really good. Apparently Lee and Clementine's adventure wasn't a one-time high quality offer. I can recommend this game with a clear conscience.

    Great first season with great characters and coherent story. More interactive story than game though.

    The Wolf Among Us tells an engaging tale, filled with great characters, colorful graphics and clever choices. If only the choices held more meaning.

    While the Walking Dead demonstrated the potency of interactive fiction, there are times here where Telltale struggles to dispel a disquieting notion: that The Wolf Among Us doesn’t necessarily benefit from the player’s involvement.

It is one of the best interactive story games I've ever played. The graphics are beautiful and along with the music and atmosphere make for a superb environment (very much like an animated comic). Voice acting is flawless and superb. The story is addicting, with cliff hangers at the end of each episode and a lot of plot twists.

    The dialogue choices often don't make much of a difference but many of them do, along with some other major choices. The fighting can be pretty fun and is definitely a joy to watch.

    Overall, a pleasurable 9 hour experience, the whole way through. The ending was wrapped up nicely (no major plot holes) with a *slight* cliffhanger at the end, JUST enough to get you excited for Season 2.

Terrifically animated andThis is one of the best visual novel games I've ever played, though it feels much more like a TV series than a VN. Terrifically animated and voiced, it brings the Fables universe to life in the way fans hoped the proposed television adaptation would have done. The only negative thing I can say about it (other than that it ended too soon!) is the shadowing can be a little bit all over the place at times. But the characters are well written, the story is engaging from start to finish, and the choices you make have legitimate consequences. What more can one ask for in this type of game? Expand

    A comic book come to life... A well made game, with an interesting story, and some very interesting characters. I enjoyed playing as the BigA comic book come to life... A well made game, with an interesting story, and some very interesting characters. I enjoyed playing as the Big Bag Wolf, and unraveling a gruesome, murder mystery. I enjoyed the bonus content too, which shouldn't be overlooked. Caveat, this game contains some nudity, and obviously violence. It's not for a younger audience. Keep in mind too that this is a Tell Tale production. It is considered a game but is closer to being an interactive book. If you're looking for something with a stromg story this could be worth a purchase. It's best played on PC; avoid the Wolf Among Us on the Xbox 360 (as it doesn't work at all). Expand

    Great story, great characters, great ending. Great replay value since you don't notice all the important details the first time around.
