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.

I was surprised with this game quite honestly. The first episode was in my opinion kind of boring, but when the second one hit it started getting quite interesting and fun. I'm on the third episode now and hope it gets better.

This is a great game. If you don't like point and click adventures that's a shame because your missing out on a wonderfully original and viscerally emotional gaming experience. Most of the gameplay involves conversational decisions in which your particular answers can affect the other character's opinions of you. The rest of the gameplay involves searching areas for items you need, and figuring out how to fight walkers when you encounter them. This game is designed for your character to feel unempowered, and as such the gameplay is not similar to a shoot em up action adventure. It focuses on the story and your relationships with other survivors, so the games pace is very slow. It makes up for it in spades with its ulra compelling storyline and eerie, uncertain atmosphere.
Best point and click I've played since Clock Tower 2. Hey there Clem...
