IGN-The Walking Dead: The Game – Episode 5: No Time Left Review

IGN: hope you’re ready to hear about The Walking Dead: The Game for a long, long time. In the next few weeks, the title from developer Telltale Games will likely win many Game of the Year awards. Moving into 2013, people will reference the series over and over as the benchmark for story-telling in games. And historically, it will stand as the game that reinvented or at least repopularized adventure games.

All i can say is , That's how you close curtains on a Zombie Fking story. It was one hell of a trip and it made me cry in the end, it was really emotional

Telltale have done themselves and all fans of TWD a service with this game. Writing is top notch all around with actions making consequences feel very real and very brutal. Wish it was a better GAME (QTEs, though I suppose there wasn't much an Adventure game was going to do with regards to combat) but it still doesn't detract from the fact that it's an absolute must-play.

To quote one random member of the internet (whose name escapes me): 'The Walking Dead isn't a game. It's an experience, and a damned fine one at that.'

That quote belongs to Journey my friend

FrostyZipper1258d ago

Does it?

Hm. Guess someone borrowed it and applied it to TWD then.

Regardless, it still fits imo.

Norrison1258d ago

Downloadable/small games sure had a great year.

Thatguy-3101258d ago

I agree. Think its quite amazing. Its actually time that small games like these get notice. Journey, The Walking Dead are what thrives the industry further.

It belongs to Walking Dead just as much..even if it originated there.

The walking dead is a masterpiece in the art of narrative and characters.

Bravo tell tale!

This, Persona 4, Allstars all in one day... This is definitely my greatest week of the month.

smashman981256d ago

Lol my greatest day of the year

birdykilla1258d ago

Purchased the season back in April 2012. Anything Walking Dead is pure gold imo. I'm sure activision will mess up their FPS Walking Dead so I'll have to wait and see with that one. TV show, comic, and game I love em!

Walking Dead takes the crown for narrative this gen. Can't wait for ep 5
