I wouldn't mind it if they came out with more playable storylines...
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.
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. UPDATE: Choice has no effect on the ending. It has a bigger effect in episode 5, but it's still not as big of an effect as episode 1. The effects your in-game choices have are only "cosmetic". Again I would pay more for a game where choice actually affects the game world; don't advertise player choice and game consequences from them if the game will still be on rails and everything is already pre-destined. If Telltale doesn't have enough budget to actually make player choices matter, they should either make a new IP that they own so that they have more budget for choices affecting the world, or they should just focus on the gameplay instead.Read more ›
I would not recommend this game to anyone until a permanent patch has been released.
EDIT: So after uninstalling/reinstalling the game on Steam, I went back and replayed through the entire episode 1... and now the game crashes repeatedly at the beginning of episode 2. So I no longer have access to episode 2 and the subsequent episodes... this is completely unsatisfactory. I will no longer be purchasing games from Telltale Games since there seems to be no fixes in sight for the save bugs. It's surprising that since Episode 1 and 2 have been released for so long now that this bug remains a problem. And the customer support has been nonexistent... aside from a lot of acknowledgement of problems with the save system, there doesn't seem to be any movement to fix it.
I highly recommend anyone to stay away from this game. While it's possible you could get a working download, I think the sheer amount of cases (on all systems) so far should be a warning sign to anyone considering buying the game.
If you are on a Mac, you will need to save a copy of your actual game file - as it will lock up for you the first time.
After that, I had no problems. (There's some info on the web on how to do this, basically you find the actual save file, and then make a copy of it, then delete it, then restart the game). I think I did the whole save game file directory.

about mid way through the second episode. Very cool game. I was dubious of the "living comic book" kind of thing, but its pretty engaging. Glad I finally got this game!Published 22 months ago by Jmessing
