    Clementine’s character is renowned as being one of the most impactful and most beloved videogame characters ever. Seeing her entire story retold with beautiful graphics and supported by a plethora of extras feels deserved and right.

    The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series really is just that, a truly definitive final edition of the entire series. I recommend this game to every single person who may play games, even those who may not be a fan of the play-style this game utilizes. In the end, this is a definitive game not only in the genre it exists in, but it is also one of the more definitive games in the history of gaming.

    The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is the complete package. If you haven't yet experienced Clementine's genre-defining journey through the zombie apocalypse and fancy a few bonuses thrown in for good measure, then this is absolutely essential. Not to be missed.

    The Walking Dead and Clementine say goodbye to the world of video games with a gold brooch that rounds out the experience, offering exclusive material that the most curious will appreciate. It presents the four seasons of history, and adds the adventure starring Michonne to complement. If we add to this a graphic review for the first games, we have a product that satisfies the lovers of the genre and that they should not miss.

    Newcomers to the series are very much recommended to plump for this collection, it’s got everything you need and the story is excellent. Otherwise, it’s probably not worth shelling out to buy everything again.

    Ultimately, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series is a mixed bag. If you haven't yet played through these seasons and are interested in taking the plunge, this offers a good way to do so as long as you're aware that the series eventually runs out of steam.

Games from Telltale were the only projects that made an unimaginable impression on me. Recall at least such masterpieces as "The wolf among us" and of course all the seasons of "The walking dead". I will never forget that. And I`m ready to support every move of Skybound. Thank you. Expand

    Quite possibly my favorite gaming series, all bundled into one package with improvements in graphics and many extra features. This is a must have.

    Die erste Staffel war wirklich das Beste der gesamten Reihe. Ab der zweiten Staffel ging die Qualität immer weiter runter. Ab Teil 3 war ich sehr demotiviert aufgrund mancher Entscheidungen der Entwickler (Stichwort: Jane oder Kenny). Die letzte Staffel stieg zwar mit der Qualität wieder an, blieb aber trotzdem im Schatten der ersten Staffel. Schlussendlich musste trotz allem der Protagonist aus Teil 1 einen Gastauftritt bekommen um meine Gefühle aktiv zu wecken. Schlussendlich hat man trotz allem ein spannendes Spiel, was einen einige Abende unterhält.

    To put it simply the Definitive Edition is a cheap cash grab. To start you are better off buying the original games by themselves for multipleTo put it simply the Definitive Edition is a cheap cash grab. To start you are better off buying the original games by themselves for multiple reasons. Reason one, A New Frontier and Michonne are terrible games that are not worth playing through. The Final Season also loses a lot of quality after episode 2 as the story nose dives and ruins what was going so well in episodes 1 and 2. Reason Two, the originals arguably look much better than the definitive edition. Graphic Black simply does not look right on these older games as it lazily placed on with no thought into it. These games were never meant to be rendered in this style, so many times while playing it looks terrible.

    It is also worth mentioning the game still has plenty of bugs that have not been bothered to be fixed that have been around ever since the originals. Many times due to the new lighting the game can look like trash often times making everything black, sometimes characters look like they are melting.

    In terms of new features, there is a model viewer, concept art, music player, and developer commentaries. However, none of this is worth the re-purchase. All this content can just be watched on youtube and you will not miss out on anything, and not to mention most features like this are already in base games at this point, this is far from something unheard of. Dev commentaries are also only 1 episode per season (except for Final which is eps 1 and 4) however, they dont even play the entire episode for the commentary, it stops after only about an hour.

    With all this said, I cant justify this purchase. Its a cheap cash grab for the same games you've played before that will play the exact same way you played them before. The only incentive to re-play is the new look, which looks worse than the originals. You can turn it off, but at that point, just buy the originals for cheaper.
