It is no secret that I am a big adventure game fan in general and of Telltale’s output in particular. And yet even I cannot deny that their last major title, Jurassic Park, was riddled with problems. While the company was clearly trying to move their approach to game design in a new direction, one heavily inspired by Sony’s Heavy Rain at that, a number of flaws quite simply held the game back from true greatness. With The Walking Dead, Telltale is taking another crack at this approach with one of the more popular original comic books to come down the pike in some time. Does the first episode in this five part episodic series succeed or is it simply time to put a bullet in the head of the whole thing and be done with it?
