IGN- The Walking Dead: The Game- Episode 1 Review

IGN- The Walking Dead: The Game is off to a great start with A New Day. It has a believable cast of characters and a great look. Sure, the puzzles some adventure gamers love are missing and there will be an audio hiccup here and there, but as an introductory hook to the five-episode series, The Walking Dead Episode 1 has just about everything fans could want. (PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 1 "All That Remains", Xbox 360) 8.5/10

Yeah I'm keeping my eye on this one, just gotta wait for the other reviews to roll in.

That's.... higher than the review Back to the Future ep 1 got from them.

I was honestly expecting lower from IGN. I'm satisfied with what they gave it. Hope it's as good as they make it sound.

Greg Miller is a die hard Walking Dead fan so his review is a tad sensationalized

I never been a fan of TellTale's past games but this one might convert me
rocky047586  +   859d ago
Oh trust me, I'm not a fan of Telltale Games at all. None of them. But from what I've seen of this game so far, I'd say that it's worth a look because of how well the voice work seemed and how good the graphics are for cel-shading, something else I'm not a huge fan of. I really like how the action is handled to be honest, it is something to make you feel how this character feels, and it still gives you free reign when you really need it too.

I'm curious where you'll cross paths with characters from the comic.

I'm kinda behind. I stopped reading right after they were set on going to Washington.

I was really put off my the intial game footage (cause I wasn't aware of it being a downloadable title)

but since then I've really come to term with what its' going to be. (and not for that matter)

I'm curious to know how long "Episode 1" is, hopefully not too short. (cliffhanger ending is to be unavoidable, I suspect)

Each episode is 2 hours long.

On the Rails. Am I right?

You were reeeeeally put off by it apparently.
rocky047586  +   857d ago
What do you mean "On the Rails"? What does that mean? The game is a fully explorable 3D game, it's an action adventure title it's not "on rails" as you are free to go where you want to go. Why don't you play the demo?

Can't believe this is actually good.... Sweet!

now the question is...buy each installment or wait and buy the whole set on a disc with bonus content?
