The Walking Dead: Episode 1 Review

3 May 2012
  • Summary: A New Day is an exceptional start to a five-part series that has me completely hooked and engrossed in a world that I can't even begin to imagine, let alone speculate about where it will go next.
  • Pros: Beautiful hand-drawn art-style, Immensely deep and emotional characters, Tough gameplay decisions that change the way the game plays out, Perfectly captures what makes The Walking Dead so great
  • Cons: The gore might be enough to put some players off

The Walking Dead: Episode 1 Review (XBLA)

Gamers Daily News

  • Summary: Favoring character development over raw action in a zombie apocalypse proves to be a good choice. Surprisingly engaging, this is worth playing even if you don’t follow the franchise it’s based on. Check out the demo prior to purchase though, to see if the lack of inverted controls will be a problem for you.

Expert Review

30 April 2012
  • 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 from Telltale Games is a 5 episode long game that creates a new storyline for the beloved comic series of the same name. The game is set before the outbreak seen on television and in the comics, but still introduces us to characters with which fans of the comic series will be familiar.

The Walking Dead: Episode 1

29 October 2012
  • Pros: Samtaler du bryr deg om, med folk du bryr deg om. Herlig tegneseriegrafikk.
  • Cons: Du blir for ofte en tilskuer, og den typiske gåteløsingen er tonet ned for mye. Hjernen blir litt ensom.
