    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.

    One of the best adventure games to hit the PC since the Longest Journey. A cartoon style, edgy, point and click adventure from Telltale Games-One of the best adventure games to hit the PC since the Longest Journey. A cartoon style, edgy, point and click adventure from Telltale Games- two thumbs up. It was all the best parts of living in a comic book and revisiting Grimm's Fairy Tales.

    Vorab: Es handelt sich hierbei um ein Telltale Game, also sollte man kein wirkliches Gampelay erwarten, jedem dem das egal ist (so wie mir)Vorab: Es handelt sich hierbei um ein Telltale Game, also sollte man kein wirkliches Gampelay erwarten, jedem dem das egal ist (so wie mir) kann ich das Spiel aber ausnahmslos empfehlen, die Story ist extrem spannend und hat sehr viele Twists die man nicht vorhersehen kann, die Entscheidungen die man in dem Spiel treffen kann, gehen immer sehr schwer von der Hand und man fiebert bis zum Ende it den Hauptcharakteren mit.
    Ich bin absolut froh, das Telltale sich neu gefunden hat und den 2. Teil produziert, denn dieses Spiel gehört ungelogen zu meinen absoluten Lieblings Spielen.

    Purchased this on PS4, I had played the Walking dead season 1 and 2 on my Xbox 1 previously. I was not familiar with the fables world beforePurchased this on PS4, I had played the Walking dead season 1 and 2 on my Xbox 1 previously. I was not familiar with the fables world before playing the game.

    I have to say this games story is wonderful. I really liked story telling and characters in this game. the characters and world were a wonderful first experience in this world and it's characters. I personally liked the story in this game more then I liked either of the walking dead games stories from telltale and I really enjoyed those as well.

    I did not experience any Technical problems with the game no glitches or slowdown while playing, it ran smooth and played smooth.

    Telltale has a not made any advances in the mechanics of the story telling in this game, if you have played either of their walking dead games then this plays pretty much the same. Like the other recent telltale adventure games, the main plot remains the same regardless of what choices and decisions but how you get there and the character interactions can change greatly depending on how you decide to get there.

    I would strongly recommend this game to anyone that enjoyed the walking dead game, adventure games, or even just a good character driven story.

It's a interactive story game with a really good story. The animation style is nice, voice acting is good, the movements are very clunky. This would make a great tv series. The Quick Time game play is not the highlight. Expand

    Telltale Games da lo mejor de sí con una de sus aventuras más emblemáticas. Gracias a su colaboración con Vértigo, la vertiente adulta de DCTelltale Games da lo mejor de sí con una de sus aventuras más emblemáticas. Gracias a su colaboración con Vértigo, la vertiente adulta de DC Cómics, consigue la licencia de las distintas fábulas, ofreciéndonos una visión diferente de Blancanieves, Ariel, Bella, Bestia y muchos más. Con una serie de asesinatos por resolver, el Hombre Lobo, reconocido detective del distrito, tendrá que investigar la causa de los mismos sin interferir en el equilibrio entre humanos y fábulas. Como en toda aventura gráfica, la toma de decisiones es el punto más importante, contando con la misma pega que los otros títulos de la desarrolladora: su obsoleto motor gráfico. Expand

The graphic novel series Fables that the game is based off has a great concept and TT really nail the gritty, harsh reality the characters live through. The game machinics are skin deep and the dectivite work you do is very simple, but it's the characters and story that push this game along and make it a great game. Expand

    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
