So does it suck?

I'm a big walking dead fan and love the tv show and have read every comic to date but really wondering if the game is any good?

I actually kind of liked the game (Have to tell that I am a huge fan of the comics and the series). It maybe is not a masterpiece in gameplay but the story is very well told. So if you see this game as a kind of interactive tv episode you won't be disappointed I guess. I wasn't and look forward to the next episodes. Moreover it is pretty cheap (but I have to say that it is very short also).

If you re not sure if you should purchase it or not try the demo first...

It's short, simple, and sweet, I loved every minute of the game, and can't wait for more. Excellent work Telltale.

You could always try the demo but if I was you I'd just buy it.... For 400msp what more could you want. I can't wait for 2nd episode now

I haven't watched the show and my reading of the comics is very minimal.

I loved the demo.

I also loved Telltale's Back to the Future game (which is the only game of theirs that I have played prior to this demo).

Though I am just waiting to experience the whole thing as one big game instead of in parts.

Never watched the TV show or read the comics but it was a thoroughly enjoyable 2 hours. Worth the $5.

I played the demo and the only thing I hated was that you have certain time to choose an answer. Imagine that shit on Mass Effect or some similar games with multiple choice answers. Don't know why is that but it sucks.

No, the game is really good. Definitely worth every point of the 400 MSP it was. The only con I would have is when going to make a decision, the timer would run out before I could read all of them sometimes.

Now why do we both agree on that!

Did it suck...no. Did I like it...no. The demo was enough for me.

Lol, not sure. It happened like 5 times during the game and I was frustrated I couldn't choose what I wanted most of the time.

i love that answers are timed...it adds a level of urgency and forces you to go with your gut instead of slowly analyzing each response. there were a lot of "oh, crap! what should i say?" moments for me...really fun!

thats well and good for the life threatening do or die moments, but do i really need a 3 second timer to force me to decide how i want to answer a question like "where do you work"

If you've read every comic, then you'll probably like it.

i think it adds a sense of realtime to the game. imagine if you were asked a question at work/school and you spent 30 seconds thinking about what you could say. sometimes you just have to act on impulse. (and yes i know its a game and not real life)

but they aren't consistant with it so that shouldn't be an issue. theres some options where you can sit for as long as you like, plus it's not like the game has a running clock or sense of time, so the realism aspect is out the window, it's just an annoying feature to me

I have read every comic to date and have seen every episode to date as well. I am a massive fan of both and these games would be sorely missed in the universe of The Walking Dead. Buy them and I promise you will not regret it.

Yeah I'm not a big fan of the timed answers but overall the game is pretty badass.

Loved it. Every bit of it. I thought the timer for questions was a good touch, the length of the episode was exactly what I expected (it is based on a comic after all) and the price was fair. You have to remember that a lot of people that come on these forums are never happy with any game they play, even if it is for free. If you are a fan of the The Walking Dead franchise, you should definitely pick up this game.

I enjoyed it. I've never watched the show or read the comics. Gotta grab the season DVDs. Been meaning to watch it. The game was quick, fun, & cheap.. I'm looking forward to the upcoming episodes.

I thought the game was a good interpretation of the series, the graphics lent to the comic book origins. The story itself was enough for me to enjoy the relatively short play time and look forward to the second episode. So Id definitely recommend paying the 400msp for this great little game.

The game is awesome. Beside feeling a little short, the game does not feel like a cheap cash grab. Definitely try the game out.

It is a great point and click game, the graphics are awesome, and the story is told really well.

All in all it is definitely worth the price.
