The Walking Dead: Episode 1 – A New Day Review | Romero Brooks

Romero Brooks: "Few games have made my abject indecisiveness so glaringly obvious. Yes, there have been times when I’ve spent hours vacillating between different options when given free rein to customize a video game character before even stepping foot into the actual game world (e.g. Bethesda’s Skyrim). But never have my decisions (or lack thereof) carried so much weight into the events and character interactions of a game like it has in The Walking Dead: The Game. While Bioware’s Mass Effect series did a great job of adding more gravity and persistence to in-game decision making, Telltale Games takes it one step further and makes choice, and their corresponding ramifications, the crux of their game. How does the game fare? Quite well, actually..." (PC, PS3, Telltale Games, Xbox 360) 9/10

Episode two please!

Good review. I was/am really surprised by how well they pulled this game off. I particularly love the quick decisions that you have to make.

The worst thing about this game is the fact that its episodic. Hopefully this is won't be an industry trend.

It's episodic, because it's based on a TV series (but is a spin-off). It wont become a trend, unless others make games that are similar in genre.

I don't mind the episodic nature of the game. $5 an episode or $20 to purchase all 5 in advance seems easier to swallow than a lump sum of $60 dollars for a new release. If you don't like where the story is going, you can opt out of the rest of the game and stop buying future episodes.

However, if the first episode stands as a benchmark for the rest of the series I think we may get a pretty good return on investment. The pressure is on Telltale to continue providing a compelling experience.
