Late to the party, and victim to all the hype, I finally finished TWD today. Not bad, but the way the whole gaming press got weak in the knees for this title is baffling to me.
*Choices don't matter that much.
*Actual gameplay mechanics are incredibly weak
*Every version of the game has technical shortcomings
*Xbox version is straight up broken on 4gb machines, and nobody really seemed to care all that much in the mainstream press.
It's a solid character driven story with excellent voice acting that does some interesting things with tension. It has pacing problems, lack of gameplay mechanics, technical problems and oversells the impact of your choices.
