The Walking Dead Review | EuroGamer

EuroGamer: "The Walking Dead is a serious, solid, but clay-footed work; in truth, it wouldn't stand out from the crowd if video game storytelling wasn't so impoverished to begin with. But some of the best pop fiction comes not from geniuses but from craftsmen who are given the right subject matter and understand just how to treat it, and that's true of Telltale here. We can only hope that the warm reception it's had from gamers will help to refocus the curious genre of interactive drama - always so ambitious, yet so easily distracted by expensive high-concept gimmickry in games like Heavy Rain and LA Noire. Those games worked in their own ways, but Telltale has succeeded much more simply: by writing a good story about people, and putting that story first." (PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360) 8/10
