Excellent

Brilliant game, not for everyone.

Before I begin this review, I need to address something...if you're searching for a violent zombie killing game to waste time on such as Left 4 Dead, Dead Island, Dead Rising, CoD zombies, etc. but set in the universe of The Walking Dead, this game isn't for you.
Instead Telltale games delivers an emotional point-and-click journey that spans across five episodes, following a convicted man named Lee accused of killing a man who was sleeping with his wife, and a young girl, Clementine, who he feels obligated to protect after learning her parents are supposedly dead.
The story is what sets this game apart from the rest. The choices you make at times can be difficult...but it's usually just like kill off A or B or something, with your decisions affecting a person's trust in you or the characters in general. What I don't like is that the game rewards mainly one play style. In fact you're actually punished alot for your decisions...so despite the dialogue options and decisions you have to make it's still a somewhat linear experience in the end.
The puzzles aren't really as difficult as I'd like them to be, though there are two separate modes that you can choose if you wanna turn off notifications and hints, and can be activated at any time during the game. The game mainly focuses on story and characters, which isn't necessarily bad because you will feel connected with the majority of these characters especially towards the end of the game.
The Walking Dead is brilliant, but the concept of a point-and-click episodic game may not be for everyone. though I encourage people to try it. If you're searching for a game with a great story, interesting character development, and zombies The Walking Dead is for you. The artstyle is cool as well! Minor bugs, though.
There's room in the market for games like this...I hope people support Telltale because I look forward to seeing what they come up with next. It's also an easy platinum, you'll get it just for completing the game. Th

I myself downloaded the episodes on PSN so I had to wait April through November to play them all but it was well worth it, this game is amazing and delivers on every single level it was one of the most entertaining and beautifuly put together games I've ever played, every decision you make can and will alter the outcome of this game and that's awesome.

Graphics- not great but that's the only negative thing you can say about this game
Story-Amazing
Sound-clear
World-fantastic
Controls-smooth and very easy to pick up on
Gameplay-very fun and captivating

I gave this game a 10/10 which I rarely do so I highly recommend you playing this game and don't forget that Walking Dead Survival Instinct comes out in a couple weeks!

This game was different then what I was expecting. I knew it was going to be focused on the story and character development. I just thought I would have more control concerning an open world environment. This game really holds your hand and is very easy. That being said it was a unique experience and it deserves an 8. I am not sure I agree with Game of the Year Award though.
