Console Version Has It's Flaws.

First off this game is amazing, great story, great voice acting, and a great soundtrack to go with it. But it does have it's flaws. Starting with the constant freeze frame lag, is it a game killer? No, but it does occur a lot, plus it will take audio out of sync and ruin some decision making choices. Also it sometimes freezes completely after you get done with some episodes where it shows you the percentage of people did what things. Now it's flaws don't ruin the game, but after seeing it happen 15 or 20 times it takes its toll on your patience. But don't let this make you not want to get the game because it's still a heck of a game, and trust me when I say the ending will shock you and wanting more for a sequel.

Unforgettable Game!

This game is absolutely amazing and will probably be unforgettable for the rest of your gaming life!
The story is so good and is the best I have ever seen in a video game. They perfected the art of building your character up, and connecting with the other characters in the game as well. You will eventually feel a real connection with the other characters especially Clementine. I found myself getting frustrated or feeling sympathy for many characters and very sad when one of people of your group dies. The beginning of the game will immediately draw you into the game since it starts off quick and with a bang. I don't want to go into a lot of detail of the story since it may contain spoilers. Overall, the story is amazing and the end will leave you shocked, sad and with a lot of questions. Story: 10/10
The graphics are very impressive. They are a comic book style graphics but better since the colors are very vibrant and the detail of the characters and the environment are awesome. Graphics: 10/10.
The gameplay is pretty good as well. If you have ever played Heavy Rain than you these controls are pretty much identical. The camera angles are similar and the action/interacting of the game is all a interactive button gameplay. Yes, this means that you won't be able to run around and free roam, build weapons, kill hundreds of zombies, and do whatever you want, but is a lot more slower paced and focuses on the story, but it's not a bad thing because this is not what this game wants to achieve. It's all about the story and the feelings you develop for the characters. Gameplay 9/10
///\\\ The only reason I did not rate this game a perfect 10/10 was because of the choppiness of the cutscenes and the delay of the character voicing. Especially during episode 1, the cutscenes were lagging so bad and were so choppy I almost wanted to break the game in half. After ep. 1 it gets a lot better though.
Overall, without these technical issues this game is a 10/10 and a MUST PLAY!!
