Good game with annoying bugs [Good]The story is great.The art style is great.As far as point and click adventures go, the gameplay is great. There’s even action.This is one of the few games tied to either a movie or TV license that actually doesn’t suck.[Bad]Episodic Release: Unless you wait for all 5 episodes to be released, you are paying for a game that isn’t fully finished yet. I would wait. This leads to another issue.Buggy: There are some really bad bugs related to save games since (at this moment) the full 5 episodes haven’t been released yet. With every new episode release it’s apparent that either TellTale didn’t fix anything, or that they like introducing new variations of the same problem. Do you like having to replay the same episode over and over again? If not, I would wait until all 5 episodes have been released before either buying or playing this game. This really detracts from enjoying the game.Compared to the PC, there are less Mac players, so finding a resolution to a problem is less likely on your own. You’ll have to wait longer for TellTale to issue fixes.Lack of Real Choice: One of the big marketing items is that “Your Choices Affect the Game”. Aside from a single major choice of deciding which character to save in the first episode, there aren’t any player choices that actually affects the game beyond variations in dialog, even in the third episode. Your actions have no effect on the world. This is really disappointing. I would pay twice as much to get real choices that affect the game’s world, that branches into a really different game, as opposed to yet another TV episode where you get a lot of fake choices that do nothing; either that or TellTale should stop marketing a feature that doesn’t exist. My guess is that your choices will only have an effect on the ending, specifically it determines what kind of person a character grows up into.Not replayable: Since your choices have no effect on the game aside from the ending, I don’t feel that this game has a lot of replayability. You can simply watch different endings on Youtube. The difference in dialog doesn’t really amount to much from the player’s point of view.[Verdict]This is a good game that has a few annoying bugs. It’s a good start, but I would pay more for a game with a world with real branching storylines based on my decisions. Right now this is just a game that pretends your decisions actually matter.You should wait until all 5 episodes are released before buying the game, so you won’t experience the major bugs.
I’m lovin’ It! I’m a huge fan of the “Walking Dead” TV series and the comic book. After hearing about the on line game version i had to check it out. I’m also in love with it and can’t wait till the next series come out!!
Just like the TV show This game will more than tie me over until season 3 comes out!I would compare this game a little bit to Heavy Rain which is still one of the best PS3 games made.
