I personally think this is the best game I have ever played in my entire life of gaming which is about 15 years of it. This is not the typical run around and kill stuff that most people are used to. As the player makes decisions, the game changes around you. I felt so involved with these people that when something bad happened I felt bad for them, if that makes sense. It grabbed me emotionally from the get go. By the end of the game I was on the verge of tears. I was extremely satisfied with this game.
I rented this hoping for something decent to play since my gf & I just got a PS3 and we both love the show on AMC. This was like playing an interactive tv show. Felt connected to some of the characters, had fun choosing what to say/do, and really liked the storyline. There are some scary frantic moments but the game is not difficult at all, which makes it a winner for us. The only two gripes I had with it were frame rate issues in the last two episodes that kind of affected my choices at times..and that there wasnt more after episode 5! :) Cant wait for the sequel.
