    Cry Wolf provides a roller coaster of emotions and a perfect ending of this mature, charming and violent story.

    Overall, it was a fun ending to a great series. Its ending isn’t satisfying at first, but it grows on you as you think about it. This is the sort of ending that has you talking with your friends for days about it.
  3. This final episode concludes the series. The episode is short but has a good tempo and we are getting a chance to see Sheriff Bigby's final true form.

    The Wolf Among Us is a noir stemmed in fantasy and (actual) glamour that blurs the lines of right and wrong. I wasn’t able to appreciate the mystery of The Wolf Among Us until the last chapter, but what a gratifying experience it turns out to be.

    Telltale does it again. The Wolf Among Us has shown that you didn't need the the emotional hook of the first season of The Walking Dead to work. It´s a different beast, more subtle, more meaty and with more to show under the surface.

    Even so, “Cry Wolf” is the end to a story worth experiencing. While not every episode has lived up to its potential, the season as a whole has left us with a world that we’re hesitant to leave behind.

    I was wrong about The Wolf Among Us – twice. The first time is when I hoped that, having practiced drama skills writing an on-rails zombie adventure, Telltale Games would be able to build something more complex and spectacular. The second time is when I thought that there would be some twist in the case of dead hookers. My failed prediction is not what vexes me; it’s the fact that Telltale just skipped the climax of the story altogether.

I was sp thrilled with the previous episodes and the story really caught straight from the beginning! The final chapter was no disappointment either. Telltale know their stuff and this RPG was absolutely breathtaking, stunning and heart-pounding. The fact that you only are given one shot to make a choice is always a dilemma, because you know it'll affect the story and the action/quick time events Works perfectly. The final episode made me real emotional and I literally got goosebumps. I can't remember any game that gave me these feelings. As a player you really get drawn into the story, the characters etc. I am hoping for a sequel now! :) Expand

Despite the lack of action in the previous episodes it is made up for by the final fight which definitely deserves the word 'epic'. It did suffer from slight tone problems and the final scene was rather predictable however it is all massively overshadowed by the surprisingly open ending. It was so open I found myself confused as to what is happening and it left me perplexed for a rather long time until I came up with my own conclusion as I'm sure Telltale envisioned players to do. This was made better as it did not rely on a gut punch to have an effective ending. I applaud Telltale for this ambitious game but the minor problems do make it impossible to give a perfect ten.

Superb story telling and u did exactly what I was hoping,for the season finale. The Violence, the dilemmas, the mystery, that doubt of ur doing everything was just right. It isn't the perfect game but surely it is better than most of the games so far this year. Hoping for a season 2 with more intriguing story with more difficult choices. I am still to play the game over again. GJ GUYS! Keep it Up. Worth it ! Expand

    I don't like this game; no where does it compare to twd s1. All these users are saying "it's better than twd" no it's not, for severalI don't like this game; no where does it compare to twd s1. All these users are saying "it's better than twd" no it's not, for several reasons. This episode had the murderer reveled and the way they did it was incredibly boring I was expecting you to find the murderer through clues but you don't. Any deaths are honestly too easy. I recommend twau to those who like Noir games but to anyone else.... Its kind of a hit and miss for me. Expand
