I should first mention i enjoyed the game very much and look forward to the sequel, but here are some criticisms:
My biggest gripe with this game is no puzzles...The reason i like telltale games so much is because its a return to classic puzzle games where story and problem solving are important and fancy graphics and sound are not necessary. But seriously, putting batteries in a radio was the biggest puzzle to be solved here. other than that it was just an interactive movie (like jurrasic park). Boy it sure was fun pressing 'q' really fast. at least the story was worth while but...
Gripe number 2 is the lack of tying the story together. It seems obvious to me that telltale wrote each episode at a time. They should have written out the whole thing so they could tie the episodes together. honestly there is very little difference your decisions make on the main story line and thats fine, but adding in little references to previous events here and there would have made a more fun story.
What i wanted the most- The guy who kidnapped clementine... he has been following you since you stole stuff from his car?? how about this instead:
He was the son of the senator that Lee killed before the zombie thing happened. He was been tracking him down all this time to get revenge now that there are no legal consequences. That would have been a million times better. Or even if he was a St John cousin or something. Instead of just some schmuck who lost his family.
