  • 1st: 2 - It's shock factor was high, overall fun, and great story.

    2nd: 4 - The story was interesting, the whole "NO BOAT! NOW A BOAT BUT NO GAS OR BATTERY! DAT ENDING!", and just alot of decisions were made here that will probably
    decide alot what happens to people in ep 5.

    3rd: 1 - It started of the series amazingly and even had a decisions that lasted for 2 more episodes longer!

    4th: 3 - Don't get me wrong, if it was a number rating, all of these would be over 9, but 3 was more emotional than gameplay.

    Oh and to everyone saying that 4 didn't live up to earlier episodes, what it will probably do to episode 5 will matter ALOT. And it IS emotional, those who have played the end will know why.

  • 1st- Episode 2: The best writing, acting, choices, payoffs and QTE's in the series. It was the episode that made me love the game instead of just liking it a lot.
    2nd- Episode 1: A terrific set-up introducing well defined characters, genuine emotion and enticing potential
    3rd- Episode 3: A strong first two acts with the two the most shocking moments in the game, but hindered by a ho-hum third act with a simple resolution to a non problem.
    4th- Episode 4: Episode 3's polar opposite. A ho-hum first two thirds that meanders about and moves in fits and starts followed by a terrific third act with a shocking twist and cliffhanger. It also had a number of gaping plot holes and inexplicable details (they really test the gaming trope of infinite pockets to its limits with Molly making a huge jump over a roof with a heavy car battery) that I couldn't ignore.

    I really hope Episode 5 can at least reach for the number 1 or 2 spot. A great ending can give a story resonance (ME1/2) while a terrible ending can sink a lot of good will (ME3). I have faith in Telltale though.

  • One a 1-10 scale. 1 being awful, 10 being amazing.

    Ep 1: 10- great introduction. Perfect in every way.

    Ep 2: 7 - good follow up. I rated it a little low because it was predictable, and so far we have no idea who Jolene was and why she watched/recorded them unless I missed something.

    Ep 3: 9- awesome episode and a shocking death to Carly or Doug. Love the scene where you can kick lilly out or keep her. Hope she shows up in 5.

    Ep 4: 10 - leaves you wanting so much more. This episode made me hate Clem though. Now I fan care less if she dies. Lee being bitten also shocked me.

    Ep 5: TBD- I just hope it is seriously longer than the others, maybe even double the length. I want to see loose ends tied up.

    In order:

    1
    4
    3
    2

    How did it make you hate her? She's acting pretty believably for the situation she is in, especially for that last dialogue moment with her. Call her whiny and a pain if you want, but she is a child. I didn't think of any of her moments upsetting me or making me like her less.

  • In my mind they are all 10/10.

    Epi. 1 = Epi. 2 = Epi. 3 = Epi. 4 | ???

  • No need to rate the episodes individually. This game gets an immediate 10/10 from me, somebody who grew up on adventure games, and never thought they would advance this far and in this way.

  • In the end it is one game in my eyes, a game that deserves a solid 9 out of 10.

    Job really well done... no matter what is to come. They just can't fuck it up anymore (and that's anymore, not any more) ;)
