As if hordes of the undead weren't problem enough, users are reporting that the retail version of The Walking Dead on Xbox 360 is nearly unplayable. Telltale forum dwellers note that the game has freezing and stuttering issues that render the game very difficult to play. This makes quick-time events particularly troublesome, with one user noting that button prompts appeared much too late, making the event impossible to complete.

Beyond these performance issues, several users report that they are unable to start Episode 2 after completing the first episode. Upon selecting the second episode, the game simply restarts Episode 1, according to the forums. An Xbox Live title update was released to fix this, though some users are reporting that it persists even after the update is installed.

As for the freezing issue, Telltale is aware of the problem, and states that it is apparently affecting users with the 4GB Xbox 360 Slim model. That said, there are users on the forum reporting the issues on other models, and Joystiq tipster Jared notes that it is also affecting his Gears of War 3 special edition console. Telltale is looking into the problem, and hopes to "provide more information soon." We've also contacted Telltale for comment, and will update this post as soon as we hear anything.

I'm sure this will be patched soon. Hope so, anyway. This is version I was hoping to buy.

Hey, wasn't the PS3 the one that always get the shoddy ports?

I guess neither is safe. I guess we all must turn to the Wii U or the PC for the gamez.

I'm playing this on ps3 and it is also very glitchy. Nothing game-breaking, but is sure is annoying!

So the way to go is the DL version?

Telltale sucks at support it will not be patched anytime soon. Actually this might have a chance since the story is finally getting out.

Yeah, I thought about that too, Strider. I like having physical copies of games, but if I'm not able to load games or they're really glitchy, forget it. I'll just get the episodes on XBL and be done with it.

Me too, but that's just too good of a deal to pass up, especially with these problems, and especially if they are all half off tomorrow.

hmnn...well, have the Episodes on LIVE been problematic?

If not, what could've went wrong?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 1:42:57 PM PST
Of course they are problematic, they're on the 360!

I thought the same thing. If these are simply ports of what was on XBL burned onto a disc... it sounds pretty tough to screw that up.

Exactly why TT has lost my future business until i have done my research that they released a quality product. The IGN article on it after it won GOTY was on point. A Game this SIMPLE shouldn't have more bugs and problems than FarCry 3 or BL2.

Had issues on the PC when I played for the first time. Was getting sound and no video.

Considering you can get the whole game for $10 from XBLA, (today only!), I don't see the point in getting the retail version.

What if I have an irrational love of physical objects?

I just played the whole game on the 360 and didn't encounter any of these problems.

"irrational love of physical objects"

Don't worry about it. You should have seen what my ex-wife did with the TV remote. *whisper font* (she put it in her nappy dugout) *end whisper font*

But seriously, hard drives are physical objects.

They sure are.
