The Wolf Among Us - Episode 5: Cry Wolf
I'm a huge murder mystery fan so I was very interested in trying out this game. I really wanted episode 5 to be released before I played it though as I binge play and go through the whole thing within 2 days.
I was quite disappointed by the reveal that Georgie was the killer, there wasn't really any clues,logic or evidence that really backed it up, I mean the highest percentage of players fingered faith's pimp as the main suspect way back in episode one, I was just hoping they would of played it smarter than that as that's really the main suspect in all tv crime shows involving hookers.
Playing games like dangan ronpa and reading agatha christie books I was so stoked for a twist that never came, I feel that my partner's theory and mine was way better then what the actually story turned out to be. My theory was Beauty was killer the girls and framing crane for the crooked man, she loaned money from him, she was in his pocket. She was at both crime scenes and she was acting very strangely at the hotel. She had the master key that could open all the rooms and she saw everybody that came in and out, it would of been very easy to kill the girls and manipulate a crime scene as she had access to all of these. Her motive to frame crane was that he turned her away when they needed help the most. I was planning all these theories and looking foreword to the big reveal. My partner's theory was that it was bluebeard framing crane to take over Fable town. I thought both of these were sound and was quite let down to the actual reveal.
I really enjoyed the first three episodes and then I felt like it kinda lost steam, I liked the game just maybe murder mysteries shouldn't be a focus anymore as it was quite awful.
