    The Wolf Among Us on the PS4 is a magnificent re-release that fans should enjoy. If you haven’t played it yet then add the game to your “to-play” list immediately.

    The first and last episodes remain some of Telltale’s finest work, helping anchor a dark, involving narrative. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a chain- smoking, bourbon-drinking pig. What more do you want? [January 2015, p79]

    If you missed out on The Wolf Among Us, now is a good time to enjoy the entertaining fairy tale crime story in all its glory, and on PlayStation 4 technically better than on the old systems.

    Despite some niggling concerns, The Wolf Among Us is well worth the budget price attached to both digital and physical versions.

    It's a triumph of tight plotting, wild imagination, and sure-handed direction. It's a game that never flinches in taking its story and its chain-smoking protagonist everywhere it can.

    This is still a great game, but it’s not the polished up final product that you may have been hoping for.

    What a surprise this game was. I had no real expectations of this game as I had little knowledge of what it was about. Having enjoyed the GameWhat a surprise this game was. I had no real expectations of this game as I had little knowledge of what it was about. Having enjoyed the Game Of Thrones Telltale games I thought I'd give this a go and I'm glad I did. The creativity from Telltale to produce such an interesting and captivating story is incredible. Loved every second of it. Expand

    The Wolf Among Us is based on the comic book
    Like a Netflix marathon you'll be completely absorbed and play one episode after another.

    The Wolf Among Us is based on the comic book 'Fables' from Vertigo, created by Bill Willingham. The true strength of the game is that they have drawn from a rich universe and crafted a believable and fantastic world. Despite being based on childrens 'fables' (which include some stark reimaginings of Disney characters) the tone of the game is consistently dark. It focuses on the daily struggles of an underclass, on the fringes of society, who find themselves out of money, in trouble with the law and turning to criminal means to get by. It also explores themes of governance and welfare and the choices presented to the player through dialogue options and the actions of your character, both big and small, genuinely challenge the player to think about these issues and empathise with each character.

    The graphic style is similar to that of 'The Walking Dead' game released by Telltale but is far more colourful and vivid. It is the closest a game has come to looking like an interactive comic.

    The game is fantastic value for money considering that it will run you half of what other new PS4 titles cost and I guarantee you will get more out of it. The choices you make and the characters you interact with will stay with you after the final episode is played out.

    Typical Telltale game. Great narrative and interesting characters. Decisions that make difference.
    Don't expect something like The Walking

    TellTale's best, hard to stop once you pick it up, like a good season of a series.

    Story did nothing for me, it was a struggle to keep playing after the first episode but I managed to get through it all in the end. I'll beStory did nothing for me, it was a struggle to keep playing after the first episode but I managed to get through it all in the end. I'll be honest and say that I enjoyed the first few chapters of episode 1 but it soon became very samey with very little to do in terms of action set-pieces. It's just make a decision, go to point A or point B look at item A or item B, the story then moves along at a snails pace. Expand
