Each episode costs $5 so if you want them all (could be upwards of 32 episodes) go for it.
So, if you saved Carley in episode 1 then episode 2 has Carley and the Doug branch is closed unless you start a new game and buy the episode with Doug. In this way it's possible that the Carley branch takes you to Ft. Benning while the Doug branch takes you to Savannah. The story could then change again depending if you left Lilly or had her get back in the RV. So forth and so on. One person could ultimately have a story that takes them to Woodbury while another lands on an island near the Florida Keys. Of course, Lee still dies at the end of e5 but you get the idea.
I liked the game as is but I only had one playthrough with no rewinds. To me the choices mattered and the story was enjoyable. I was happily unaware of what would happen if I selected the other choices/dialogue options. But I can see how others wanted to see that choosing something else changed the story radically. That's not what this game is but does not mean it can't be that for season 2.
$160 for the entire game F*ck that, that sounds like DLC at it's worst
