Conclusion: Like many fans of The Walking Dead, I started off watching the TV series rather than reading the comic. As my affection for the series continued to grow, I found myself reading the comics as well, thus thoroughly indulging myself in the zombie goodness from creator Robert Kirkman. When The Walking Dead Game was announced by Telltale Games, I was a bit thrilled by the news.
Summary: The Walking Dead: Episode 1 is a superb addition to the universe created by Robert Kirkman. Everything that has made the graphic novel great is bundled into this short (2-3 hours), but incredibly absorbing adaptation.
Pros: Faithful adaptation of the graphic novel, Classic point-and-click gameplay with solid action, Relatable, truly human characters, Choices weigh heavy and require quick thinking
Cons: Minor graphical imperfections, Some characters not completely rounded out
The Walking Dead: Episode 1 - A New Day review (PS3)
26 April 2012
Excerpt: The Walking Dead is a unique take on horror comics. In a world suddenly overrun with zombies, the few remaining humans try their best to survive as long as they can. The future is bleak and there’s little hope that the world will ever return to normal. There’s no room for gun-toting, axe-swinging heroes in this scenario. The zombies vastly outnumber humanity and their numbers only grow.
Excerpt: Already a hit comic and television series, the Walking Dead franchise is now a media triptych with this jaunt into gaming, keeping its unique ratio of spilled viscera and earnest melodrama intact. The first episode is an entertaining three-hour romp, and while still an adventure game at its heart, it largely manages to vanquish illogical inventory puzzles in favor of story-driven conversations with consequences that Telltale promises will echo out into future episodes.
Summary: This is not your average Telltale Games adventure. The developer best known for all-ages affairs like the Back to the Future and Tales of Monkey Island franchises has nimbly waded into the guts and gore of the zombie apocalypse with the first episode of its five-part take on The Walking Dead.
Pros: Gripping storyline and first-rate characters and dialogue, Fantastic, stylish artwork, Panicky, crazy action sequences
Cons: Shallow gameplay, Camera angle is too restrictive in many scenes
Excerpt: The Walking Dead é, sem dúvida alguma, umas das mais famosas franquias da atualidade. Publicada desde 2003 no formato de Histórias em Quadrinhos, a história escrita por Robert Kirkman ganhou popularidade com tempo, tendo hoje uma série de TV com mesmo nome, que já se tornou um sucesso mundial. Agora chegou a vez dos videogames receberem a sua versão. Mas será que o jogo possui a mesma excelente qualidade das HQs ou da Série de TV?
Pros: Enredo envolvente, com personagens carismáticos e momentos marcantes., Opções de escolhas incríveis, moldando o comportamento dos personagens ao seu redor., Visual que lembra muito as HQs., Uma das platinas mais fáceis da história, basta terminar o jogo.
Cons: Movimentação problemática e pouco intuitiva., Final muito mal elaborado, com acontecimentos sem explicações sólidas.
Summary: В итоге разработчикам хочется аплодировать стоя – они смогли восстановить репутацию после провального Jurassic Park: The Game и заодно сделать достойных, не оскверненных штампами мейнстрима интерактивных «ходячих мертвецов». Пропустить подобный проект сегодня – сродни преступлению.
