Conclusion: Replayability: Worth doing multiple play-throughs as the story changes when you make different reactions to the situations that come up. Ratings: Worth Buying: Yes, 400MSP is a great price but be warned there are 4 more episodes, hopefully no more than 400MSP, making this in total a 2,000MSP game. Achievement Whores Dream: Yes, 2 - 3 hours for full 100% just be simply playing and beating the game.
Conclusion: Talking, cursing, killing, fighting, fight and run actions! So many choices they offer you! They go with you to season 3 so pick wisely! Plus you will cry! So in the end you get a digital xb and ps exclusive that has 40 easy non missable achievements for a game thats 10 hours in all. So I recommend it to all Walking Dead Fans!
Excerpt: Sure, there were comic-book cameos in the first half of Walking Dead’s Season One, but we’ve rarely seen Telltale tackle stories like the comics or show. Those are about unlikely communities forming and post-apocalyptic despots performing savage acts of power. For the games, Telltale seemed to keep the number of central characters countable on one hand, which allowed for greater storyline agility (we doubt the show could jump from a fright-filled farm to a...
Excerpt: Telltale Games' The Walking Dead will continue its second season this week with the brand-new episode "A House Divided." The new season got out to a slow start with players only getting introduced to the various characters in the last episode, but the action really kicks off in episode 2, with it being the most dramatic episode so far. One of the things that makes Telltale's zombie series so breathtaking is the great writing and intriguing characters.
Summary: It's probably natural to assume you'd be disappointed with The Walking Dead: 400 Days. After all, this is a tide-you-over adventure intended mainly to fill in the long summer months between seasons one and two of Telltale Games' spellbinding take on Robert Kirkman's award-winning comics about the zombie apocalypse. Fortunately, that's an assumption 400 Days quickly proves wrong.
Pros: Creepy vignettes with many unsettling moments, Interesting look at the background of how a group of survivors gets formed, Varied storylines mix up the adventure activities, Brilliantly written with outstanding characterization and voice acting
Cons: Vignettes give you little time to get to know characters
Conclusion: The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a great appetizer for Season 2. The ending’s a bit too simple (Wait, if they’re hiding from people, why would they do that?) and I don’t love the characters like I loved Lee and Clem, but the action and drama show that Telltale still has it and isn’t satisfied to pump out exactly what the developers did last year. That -- like these five stories -- is very exciting.
Summary: Telltale Games already had a solid reputation amongst gamers with their prior episodic game offerings including “Tales of Monkey Island,” new “Sam and Max” adventures, and their not groundbreaking, but enjoyable “Back to the Future” offering. “The Walking Dead” managed to buck expectations, by making a zombie game less about split-second action (ala “Left 4 Dead”) and more about what goes on in between attacks from creeping death; in other words, the often intense human...
Excerpt: Nothing related to core game play is changed in the fourth (of five) episode of the series and that’s perfectly fine, as the game’s real draw, the smart, adult level of writing continues to push gamers down a compelling narrative path forcing them to make decisions that from a base complexity standpoint are rather simple, but carry far more emotional weight than anything you could possibly accomplish through controller-based wizardry in a watershed game series.
The Walking Dead: Episode 5 - No Time Left (X360) - Review
1 December 2012
Excerpt: As one popularly quoted pessimist once said, all good things must come to an end. For the Walking Dead video game, like its sister comics, this is only partly true. Although No Time Left brings to an end the first series, the second series has already been confirmed for a 2013, meaning that those who enjoy heart-tugging Georgian zombie dodging won't have too long to wait until all (or some, or none) of your favourite characters return.
