Thoughts from those who have finished Episode 1? (No Spoiler version)

How is the game? Is the gameplay fun? How is the story?


No spoilers though. I'm waiting to see if I want to buy this or not.

  • I thought that it was worth the purchase.

    Much better than most episodes from season 2 of the TV show.

    This is coming from someone who has a lot of friends that read the comic, but never actually read the comic himself. I should really get around to doing that one of these days.

  • It's awesome and well worth the money, buy it. As a huge fan of the comics I'm impressed with how much the folks at Telltale seem to love The Walking Dead too.

  • just great.. i hated JP but TWD ist just great...!!

  • Game's a ton of fun, atmosphere and interactions were nailed.

    There were a few "Adventure Game Moon Logic" sequences where where you had to do some really convoluted stuff with items that could have been put to much more efficient use. Also, some objective chains that only really needed two or three steps took four or five, I guess to pad the game, but for the most part the flow and pacing were amazing.

  • its very short, and fairly linear. i think they should have charged 5 bucks per episode, rather than 25 for 1 episode, and the rest whenever they want to release them. its very fun the first play through. common sense will keep you out of all trouble. there arent unexpected "twists" when you choose certain things.

    good game, though i hope the choice options get more dramatic.

    The $25 is for the season, not one episode. PSN is the only place I know of where you only buy 1 Ep at a time and it is only $5 each.

    Great mood in this episode. Makes you want to play more. Some hard choices althought I would like even more parallell choices than those given. The story is engaging and you care about what you do. I would recommend you to buy the whole series right away. If you like adventure games, tension, zombies and dialogue and face-2-face hack'n'slash, go for it. I had a great time.

    The only thing that I really hated is that after episode I they show ALOT of trailer video for episode 2 - I'm a person who hates to read the back side of the cover of movies, as I feel they spoil the whole movie... Anyways, I'm really looking forward to the next episode. The graphic feel is awesome and you really want to know what is going to happen later on!

    Telltale has done a great job so far - let's hope they give us more dilemmas and increase the number of choices in the future.

  • Just completed it on the ps3 and I thought it was awesome, Loved some of the hard choices you had to make and the quick time events were spot on making you feel a sense of urgency. You really care whats going to happen to most the characters you meet.

  • Hey guys I have an xbox360 and I still can't find the download for this game can anyone help me out?
