I just don't get playing a game like this if the end is decided for you.
When i first started playing i was really excited and thought what i chose mattered but really it didn't. All i was choosing was one of two roads that led to the same destination.
It's like a choose your own adventure but with each characters ultimate survival already set in stone. I prefer games that give me the chance to decide a characters fate. If i wanted something set in stone i'd just watch the tv series.
I think i'll do that anyhow. No way will i get sucked into a sequel to the game.
Forgive me if my review offends you. Remember it's just my opinion and you know the story about everyone having one of those right?
Your choices do
The game is "Tailored".Which dosen't mean that you get story-branching.The choices you are making don't seem to impact you at first,but every single thing you said or done the game remembers and you develop a different relationship with characters and different dialog options.Lets say there is a shirt beign "Tailored" for you.You will get shorter or longer sleeves,but you won't get a third sleeve. :P
I don't know what you ment by "A game that give me a chance to control a character's fate".You can choose to either save Doug or Carley,which is one of the most important decisions in the game.You can spare or kill the St.John's,which will change the way characters are looking to you.You can have Molly die or live depending if you brought Clem with you to Crawford or not (and depending how good you are with guns),you can drop Ben or pull him up,which again changes the way fifth episode goes. ;-) And about the ending,alright,Lee dies,but you can either have him die as a human,or let him turn into a walker.
Theres a lot of small stuff your choices change. :-)
