I have a storage removed error and erased my episode 2 progress, but lucky for me this game is awesome so replaying the episode was fine. This game deserves GOTY.

Have not been all the way through yet; Im just starting Episode 5, but haven't had any problems with the game. I know one thing though- Ben needs to die. Painfully.

Never mind!

That kind of sucks, man. Luckly, I have not encountered any (*bad*) freezing or game-breaking glitches.

My only problem with the game is what some other people mentioned. The game tends to "hiccup" in places and the loading times are attrocious. Aside from that the only REAL complaint against the game is that the game is still relatively linear dispite the choices you make. When I first heard about this game, I thought it was going to be the video game version of those old "Choose Your Own Adventure" books I used to love when I was a kid.

Unfortunately, the game fell short of those expectations, but there is no denying that the characterization and tension was top notch.

As far as I am concerned, any game that can solicit an emotional attachement from the player is a good game. For $10, I think I got my money's worth.

This game is amazing. It deserves all the acolades it recieves. Easily the best storyline I've played in my 15+ years of gaming. And that's a lot of games. Lol.

This is easily one of the worst games I've ever played (not trolling)

How this game got such praise I'll never understand. As a fan of Walking Dead and the Myst series, I came into this expecting to like it. I came away miserable. I'm on episode 5 now and I'm going to push through it to get the completion and to maybe find some redemption, but my heart sinks just thinking about it.

Issues:

1. Story - This story is awful. The characters are extremely flat and one-dimensional. You know exactly what they're going to do at any given time. If someone is bad, you know it. I have yet to find a single game-changing surprise (obviously you can't know exactly what's going to happen). Beyond the characters, there's barely any direction and the pacing is horrible as it takes forever to get anything done.

2. Gameplay - Remember in episode 4 when you had the compelling experience of taking a car battery out of the car? Or episode 2 when you managed to unscrew four screws? Truly worthy of praise. Lee moves slowly toward anything no matter the situation. You're often left with no direction at all on what to do (normal for an adventure game) but the solution is never clever and so it's not rewarding to solve the puzzle. I mean seriously...Just terrible.

3. Decisions - People complain about Mass Effect. This is basically the exact same thing. Nothing really seems to matter.

This is what I was going to say.

The game didn't blow my mind or anything, but I certainly enjoyed what I've played so far (the first two episodes). I try never to expect anything from a game because it's almost always disappointing when I do.

Then again, maybe my opinion will change once I get around to finishing the episodes.

Yes! I love Telltale games and love Walking Dead. I saw my brother playing this and was disappointed. Lost almost all interest. I may play it anyway just to get the completion and the story, but I think this is a lost opportunity.

Both brothers who played this told me they'd rate it lower than 6/10 and would not play it again. Also, they said the same thing: Decisions do not matter in the end.

I guess its call of duty or bust for some gamers...you need explosions and cheesy endings.

I'm inclined to agree with our Spaniard here...

It's not necessarily the ending remember, it's the journey to get there. So far played only episode one and the journey has me hooked.

The end is great and the journey getting there is even better! Who cares if they all end the same, everyones story is slightly different.

I finished the disc version of the game. Only problem I ever had was some hitching in one or two scenes. Also, the load times were long. I guess I should be thankful that was all I had to deal with. The gameplay was clunky and I can certainly empathize with the criticism it gets for that. However, I loved the story. Every time I had to stop playing it, I was anxious to get back to it. Any game that sticks with me long after I finished it is a winner in my book. Telltale just needs to learn to polish their product and they can do even greater things.

Great game, Loved it. One of the best I ever played definitely because of story and the unexpected happenings. I'll remember it for long time.

Oh and since I know it's a bitching thread so... my complain is that in the end our choices don't mean at all and that sucks since the game shows that everything matters big time and I didn't liked the way it ended, That's All

Man it gets better....you just wait. I wound up playing episode 4 and 5 straight through. My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next game.

Nice of TellTale to hook me with the first episode for free....that was marketing genius.

Played episode 1 through twice with no problems, but after completing episode 2 right through to the credits and saving I come to play episode 3 and it started a new game. VERY pissed.

Get to episode 3, goes back to episode 1. Re-do episodes 1 and 2 to get back up to 3, goes back to episode 1. It'd be nice to play episodes 3, 4 and 5 sometime but I don't think that's happening ever.

Hope they enjoyed my money though.

I loved every minute of this game. I only had one glitch throughout the whole thing, aside from small sound lags, or whatever. When I was on the train, it glitched and I couldn't advance so I reloaded that section and worked perfectly from then on.

Can't wait for the next installment!

I just can't play it a forth time again, which means ill never play epiode 4 and 5. Any ideas if these mags get paid to hype broken games
Why is it that on every game there's just ONE person experiencing horrible glitches? I feel lucky that I'm 99.9% glitch free on every game I play.

Same here, the aim thing disappeared and I had to rewind during the train part, but other than that, so far so good.

I'm going to have to agree with A Silent Circus here. I'm not really sure what everyone is raving about here. Sure it has a great story, but it ends there. I could read a book or watch a movie and get the same thing out of it. But I put that disc in my 360 tray expecting to play a game and instead I get more of an interactive movie than anything remotely close to amusing gameplay. This game was definitely way overhyped just because it carries the Walking Dead name.

No hype here. Only seen the first episode and played the game first. It's the emotion that got me with this game like no other.
