If you're thinking about getting this game, you're probably thinking some things like: Uh oh...a game based on a book/TV show?....That usually doesn't work. Or maybe you're thinking: Point and click?...Check please! Or maybe you didn't like some of Telltale's past titles?
And you know what, some of your concerns may even be valid; it really depends on your expectations for this awesome release, so let me try to set some of those expectations. First of all, The Walking Dead game is for and will be loved by--and loved by is a guarantee, graphic novel readers--any true fan of Robert Kirkman's source material. Anyone looking to run and gun down zombies will not get that out of this game. You certainly don't have to have read the book or seen the show to enjoy this game; just be sure that you are planning to get into and be part of a story-rich experience.
The Walking Dead game is no Burn Zombie Burn or some other bash as many zombies' brains in as possible game. This game is a lot more of an RPG than a shooter.
You start the game the day the zombie apocalypse begins concurrently from the start of the comic book series. You play as Lee, and just as in the book (and in the TV show) where the main character Rick was initially thrown into a chaotic journey by himself to find other survivors...that's you as Lee in The Walking Dead game.
There are plenty of action sequences, but your time in this game is mostly spent literally being a part of the story making some tough (and some not so tough) decisions.Read more ›
The beauty of Telltale's episodic game is in its powerful narrative, its compelling use of emotion, and its unique (by modern standards) gameplay. In terms of the gameplay, it largely reminds me of the wonderful "point and click" adventures that I played on my computer as a child, where story was paramount. However, Telltale has refined the formula so that this "point and click" style works well even with console controllers, and there is a wonderful level of tension created at times, when you must quickly perform an action or choose how to respond to another character's inquiry.
The visual approach works wonders, creating a unique, comic book style that can quickly turn from colorful to frightening. Atmosphere is huge in this game, and the world is engrossing and it becomes "realistic" as you're drawn into the story and the perils that the characters face.
The story can at times have ludicrous elements (this is my lone criticism), such as when adults don't know how batteries work (or that portable radios run on them). But this is a minor gripe, and it is vastly overshadowed by a tremendous narrative that is coupled with moving music and some of the very best voice acting I've ever heard in a game. Rarely have I ever felt more connected to a character than the lovable Clementine, who even the coldest of gamers will grow affectionate of.Read more ›
As much as I loved the game, I have to say the gameplay is its weakness. There were several occasions when I forgot I had a controller in my hand, as there was quite a bit of cutscene watching. For those who love the action of a good shooter or brawler, be aware this is much slower paced. Much of the gameplay revolves around conversations with other characters and choosing responses or actions. Sometimes this choice dynamic works incredibly well, with consequences that truly reverberate througout the rest of the story. On these occasions I felt very connected to the main character and the outcome of these choices. Other times it feels a bit like a gimmick, where it is a choice presented for its own sake with no real effect. When the action does ramp up the game definitely becomes tense, but certainly does not present the tight response of a good FPS (nor does it try to, since it is radically different). Obviously based on my rating none of this impaired my enjoyment of the game, but I thought others who are wondering what all the hype is all about might find this information helpful!Read more ›
