    Animated movie that last around 2 hours with a placebo feeling of video game.
    Throw inside this short clip the fact that TellTale have 0 respect for their customer or Schedule and you have this poor and mediocre experience.

    Not to mention, that you have to wait around 2 or 3 months for another teaser.... My bad another episode...

    2 points= 1 for each hour of this wannabe "game" episode

    Telltale should just make animated movies. They clearly have no interest in actually making a video game, that's clear from this game and The Walking Dead. Like TWD, it's all story, no gameplay.

    The story isn't bad, but it's a video game, not a movie. If you want to make a movie, make a damned movie.

    I like the story but the game itself is too casual and linear. I grew up with Monkey Island and similar games which took ages to figure something out. The Wolf Among us is just too easy and its like watching a short movie where you have to spam a key sometimes.

    All the worst things a game can be. Wolf Among Us is truly a disgrace and not worth playing even if it was free. Episodic, interactive story-driven, on-the-rails linear, boring and just plain stupid.

    Another monotonous and boring video game story. Setting itself as a SinCity Noir esquire clone. Although differing when children's fables and urban legends are combined in the stroy, at least they don't have vampires and zombies, but then again they probably will do.

    Rather then actually playing game to the conclusion, where, what you do from actions and speech. Has any real effects
    Another monotonous and boring video game story. Setting itself as a SinCity Noir esquire clone. Although differing when children's fables and urban legends are combined in the stroy, at least they don't have vampires and zombies, but then again they probably will do.

    Rather then actually playing game to the conclusion, where, what you do from actions and speech. Has any real effects to the games final outcome. The outcome will undoubtedly be the same. As if in any reward will only get a slightly different speech or animation throughout which doesn't effect anything., These slight differences are never of any actual consequence to this game because they will always be the same in this played out *video-game progression.

    It has all be done before and much better so many other games, alter, tailoring gamer choices to events and outcomes. Even a game coming from under the same brand the Walking Dead had many better choices of characters left in play from direct game event actions. But also tedious when having a naff ending and lacking in much specific difference.

    Puzzle games, seek and search games are wonderful. However this isn't that type of game, items often wont fit as in if you do or don't have them, they are painfully easy to find, further they are mostly of no real consequence to outcomes. Actions won't particularly effect any game play neither will most choices of speech.

    Somebody will argue because I tore off a creatures arm in a programmed sequenced fight. The game is severely altered Oh no. That same armless guy is saying the same things to me in all the same places, however armless. if going to a different location this will affect a different game outcome? No! The same events will always take place, more through a lack of any actual event though. dulling wait another few months to get a different starting episode animation that won't have altered anything.

    Ultimately a tedious rip off selling a 1/5 of the game every few months to get more money from the gamer, but never the entire game for any complete discounted satisfaction.

    Simply them playing out a story for the gamer , where personally I would rather be watching my TV or reading a book. Avoid a complete waste of time until the full version is available at a discount

    Wolf Among Us is great, better than the original comic. Willingham, take notes! [Nov 2013]

    Here's hoping the rest lives up to this stellar first episode. [Jan 2014, p.79]

    A new benchmark for “branching narrative” games. The Wolf Among Us turns players into viewers by almost ditching gameplay, but you will enjoy watching this show.
