Perfect

GREAT but wish it had more action!

I was under the impression that originally this would be a bad game, not living up to my expectations due to the hype that is generated everywhere I see this game. But since I am a huge zombie fan and an even bigger The Walking Dead fan, I thought I would give this game a shot. Very glad that I did as it is now one of my favorite games for Xbox 360! Recommended.

I especially love the time aspect; the game times you when you are choosing critical and game-altering decisions and this definitely adds to the game.

I am slightly disappointed that there is not more "action" in this, as in more scenes where I am able to push through zombie hoards (this part of the game was awesome) and freely use my gun. Although, it is a nice change of pace from the first player shooters I have been playing. The characters and crazy player choices/outcome totally make up for it, though. Love all of the different kinds of characters and their personalities, definitely added to the game. Especially Clementine, she made the game worth it!

This game was glitchy at times (instances I can recall are when it was loading episodes that I had not click on to play and during the train ride, my screen completely fell through the ground and was unplayable, etc.), and at one point in the game, I had to completely turn off and restart. Thankfully it auto-saves relatively often

Surpassed my expectations and was a FANTASTIC game, Telltale did an amazing job. One of my favorite games and I recommend to all players!

Episode 1 great. Episode 2 frustrating and boring, wasted so much time when I already figured out the situation but couldn't trigger the events.

the story is great, very much in the style of the comics. gameplay could be better but is still pretty fun. the biggest problem with the game is it is hard to play through a second time> the story barely changes when you make different choices, you can't skip cut scenes, credits or even the previews for the next episodes. Great game but only worth one play through.
