Where can I start with this game...This game was really something special and this game achieves what other TV licensed games cannot achieve and that MEANS something. About 95% TV license or Movie licensed games are normally a piece a garbage, but this game was a master piece and I am glad it turned out to be so amazing. All I must say is, if you love the Walking Dead show or you like interactive games like Heavy Rain and Mass Effect etc etc. Pick up this game! If you want a beautifully crafted story and well thought characters, pick this game up ASAP. If you rent this game and plan to play all the way through, you have an epic journey ahead of you. This for me was easily the Game of the Year of 2012. Now, if you are one of those people who plays zombie games such as Dead Island, Dead Rising, Left 4 dead, just to chop em up with your friends and have a good time and that's it, I do not think this game will entertain you unless you care about characters and want to hear a great story. The gameplay in this game isn't really nothing much it is pretty simple. Its just like Heavy Rain where you click and click and click. Graphics are comic book styled, Music is great, Story is amazing, and the characters were really thought out perfectly, and the interactivity was truly awesome. Overall this game is an epic 10 hour journey. (At least I think this game is up to 10 hours), so at the end, I think a lot of people should give this game a shot if you love story and characters, or if you love walking dead show period. This game is awesome, you won't regret this rent.

If you are a COD fan and like nothing more then to just kill things then leave don't even bother reading any review on this game. If you like well told stories and a game that is defined by choices you make then get this game now!!!
What's good: every decision you make has weight behind it, you are responsible for every right and wrong choice. Most people dismiss this game because of the cartooney feel but that just makes the game better and easier to play, it isn't a horror game it is an interactive story get over it! Every character feels real, you will be stuck in so many situations where you have to choose who you agree with, who you will spite, and who you will save. After you make a wrong decision you feel it and want to start over just to make things right making this game very replayable.
What's bad: I know I said the cartooney aspect is good but it's also bad, the characters glitch out and look just straight up stupid at times. This game is only an autosave game which isn't entirely bad since that makes decisions harder to make but if the autosave file becomes corrupted then you lose EVERYTHING, it hasn't happened to me but I have heard people say it has happened to them. Split second dialogue choices make sense for tense situations but make no sense to have when you are just trying to converse with people. The story tends to drag on a bit, obviously it isn't action packed 100% of the time but some of the game gets boring which just means you have to play the game in spurts, not the whole way through.
