Very Good

Stuck between a Rock and a Zombie? No kidding!

Let me first say that this game is great. It's exciting to unfold and develop the story throughout the episodes. The story, the character development, and the moral dilemmas set this game apart from many out there. I was happy to find out that this game comes from a small studio rather than a EA or the like.

Let me also say that I probably won't be playing this game again unless more Episodes are released. I say this because the plot is on rails; meaning that no matter the decisions I make, the ending is still the same. No Mass Effect story arcing here, sorry. Replaying the game make change certain story lines, but the fixed "events" don't change.

Slight spoiler-Warning!!!
The other reason I won't play this game again is the ending. It left a lasting emotional mark because I was so vested in the two main characters of Lee and Clementine. If you watch the AMC series, you know that you can get attached to characters very easily, especially if you have seen them escape horrible deaths over and over again. If you ever played FF7, and you tried desperately to get Aeris back, then realized you couldn't, NO MATTER WHAT, then you know how it feels when you "lose" a character before you're ready. Combine the two experiences and you have the ending of this video game.

With that, I end this review with a strong recommendation that you rent this game. Give it a go over a weekend and you too will fight the dead and fear the living.
