The Walking Dead was my first introduction to a TellTale game and was basically the beginning to the end. Not long after completing LEGO Batman I waxs looking for something new to play and as a fan of The Walking Dead TV show and comic book this seemed like a no brainer. I started slowly with episode one, mostly due to my play times being after the kids went to sleep, but by the time I got to episode two I was hooked. The story, in my opinion, is as well written and fits in perfectly with the rest of the Walking Dead universe and the character development actually makes you care for them. If I had any complaints at all it would be replay ability. The game doesn’t make you want to go back and play it again but instead makes you want a new season even more.
This game is pretty straight forward and should take a little more than 12 hours to complete.
Difficulty rating is a 1 out of 5. The game is basically just making choices and following simple directions. Even when you have to do some type of activity it is simple and easy to get after a few tries.
Overall I would give the game 5 out of 5 stars. The story is entertaining, the characters are enjoyable and if you are a fan of The Walking Dead this is a great game to play while you wait for the next season or issue to release.
