4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy successor to the walking dead [episode 1 review], October 12, 2013
By 
This review is from: The Wolf Among Us [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
I have many things to say, but this will be kept short in order to avoid spoilers.

The Wolf Among Us is an adaptation of the Comic series Fables. It is sold as an adventure game, but really, the puzzles are pretty lightweight and not so numerous. You could say that this is actually a piece of interactive storytelling, with choices to make that have an impact on the story's flow. Developers Telltale have essentially applied the same treatment to this comic series as they have with The Walking Dead last year.

Of course, it's hard to judge the game when only the first episode, which can be completed in just over two hours, has been released. But what we have here is very promising. The first thing one notices is that the art style is stunning: it's reminiscent of The Walking Dead game, but with a different, brighter palette. Then comes the story, a whodunnit, which starts a bit slowly but gets captivating after the first 30 minutes. The decisions you have to make as a player are not always as agonizing as in The Walking Dead, but this is to be expected: In the earlier game, everything was a matter of life and death. Nevertheless, by the end of the episode,I knew my patience would be tested while waiting for the next one! And that is the best indicator that This is another winner game for Telltale.
