Curious on if to buy? Don't be, it's....

Fucking fantastic. Seriously, go buy this game. I was on the fence because of Jurassic Park, as I had my right to be. Minor minor audio issues aside on the PC, this game has great gameplay, story, VO, and most importantly captures 'TWD' vibe.

It's 25 bucks for the Season Pass. If you pre-ordered it was 22.50. It is worth it, I've only played the first hour but I am enjoying it. It'll keep me entertained at work and runs well on my laptop (yay point and click games).

I agree.

Yeah, this is definitely the best thing TellTale has done in some time. A great first episode that leaves you wanting more.

Hope they iron out some of the bugs.

I'm not a fan of how the keyboard and mouse controls in this game. It's kind of like how a Wii FPS game controls, where you control the cursor and the camera follows instead of controlling the camera itself, just feels weird to me. The movement isn't that great with a keyboard either. I think it controls a lot better with a gamepad. I wouldn't mind this but they didn't include the option to invert the y-axis on the right analog stick, had to switch to my DS3 and invert the analog stick at the driver level.

I also had Lee get stuck in an infinite loop of picking up a battery.

yeah, really enjoyed it. My only issue is it ended and I have to wait another month for more, grr!

The "next on" teaser at the end seemed to show lots of scenes related to my choices in episode 1, like someone telling me off over a call I made much earlier. Seems really promising. They did a good job with the controls too I feel. People should definitely give it a shot.

My only problem is it gets down to 0 and 2 FPS during scenes with tons of zombies. My computer ain't no beast, but it runs better looking games than this without getting framey.

I have seen almost zero of this game, but I did hear Whitta talk about it. How is the gameplay? I heard it has action elements.

This is based on a tv show, right? I haven't seen it - should I still get the game?

It's based on the comics. You should totally get it.

I thought it was supposed to be out today for the 360. The arcade games for this week are up but not The Walking Dead, very disappointing. Anyone know the release date?

Just finished it in one sitting, loved it

Though I do doubt some of my choices, probably gonna replay before episode 2. I like how they handled the player choice system

Next episode looks exciting

Baller. I feel like picking up a game I know next to nothing about, so this'll do.

Goddamnit, XBLA version is coming sometime soon in the future.. Well I guess it will give people time to form better opinions on the game and I can make more informed decision to purchase it or not.

#22 Posted by ShaggE (6451 posts) -

I loved it, and can't wait for more. I want to play it again to see how good the choice system is, but I'll probably wait until I play the rest of the episodes so that my choices feel weightier. Telltale's quality slump is over, it seems.
