    Disclosure: Game only review played on a PS3

    If you’re thinking about getting this game, you’re probably thinking some things like: Uh oh…a game based on a book/TV show?….That usually doesn’t work. Or maybe you’re thinking: Point and click?…Check please! Or maybe you’re not too excited about the month to month episode thing? Or maybe you didn’t like some of Telltale’s past titles?

    And you know what, some of your concerns may even be valid; it really depends on your expectations for this awesome release, so let me try to set some of those expectations. First of all, The Walking Dead game is for and will be loved by–and loved by is a guarantee, graphic novel readers–any true fan of Robert Kirkman’s source material. Anyone looking to run and gun down zombies will not get that out of this game. You certainly don’t have to have read the book or seen the show to enjoy this game; just be sure that you are planning to get into and be part of a story-rich experience.

    The Walking Dead game is no Burn Zombie Burn or some other bash as many zombies’ brains in as possible game. This game is a lot more of an RPG than a shooter.

    You start the game the day the zombie apocalypse begins concurrently from the start of the comic book series. You play as Lee, and just as in the book (and in the TV show) where the main character Rick was initially thrown into a chaotic journey by himself to find other survivors…that’s you as Lee in The Walking Dead game.

    There are plenty of action sequences, but your time in this game is mostly spent literally being a part of the story making some tough (and some not so tough) decisions. It’s the tough decisions that will affect how the rest of the game unfolds for you, and you’ll have to live with the consequences of every option you choose.

    The game does give you the option of “rewinding” back to a specific checkpoint, and you can go forward from there and choose a different option that overwrites your original decision if that’s your style. But I won’t do that until I complete the entire series. I tried to make the main character call “the right move” when presented with choice; but there is a time limit when decision time comes, and sometimes you may regret a hasty decision. For example, you’ll have to choose one life over another twice during just the first episode, and I’m not sure that I made the “right” choice in one of those moments. But I will live with my decision until after playing through the entire series just to “keep it real.” The game sure does get an A for replay value.

    Just as in the graphic novel (and the TV show), the story is much less about zombies and more about what happens to society, its morals, laws and standards when government is lost and the planet becomes mostly uninhabitable. But this time you don’t just watch it unfold on paper or on your TV screen; in this game you’re part of the story…you control your integrity, your morality and ultimately your destiny. And there’s real, heartfelt emotion in The Walking Dead game combined with very believable scenarios. Color me a sissy, but I actually got a little misty over one of the decisions that “I had to” make.

    The Walking Dead game is excellent…especially for just a point and click. It’s as gritty and graphic as the comic book, and it’s very story-rich. If you read the comic as I do…you’ll love it. The graphics are appropriately very comic-bookesque. I really do feel like I’m part of a different story arc in the freakin’ book! Best 20 bucks I’ve spent all year…so far. Plus anyone clamoring for a Platinum Trophy (or whatever the top achievement for getting all in-game achievements is on your platform) could get an easy one here; all the trophies are unmissable simply by finishing all the chapters in every episode.

    The Walking Dead game is a deep, personal and emotional adventure.

    The Walking Dead – Episode 1: A New Day – PC Review, April 26, 2012

    The Walking Dead – Episode 1: A New Day

    I picked up The Walking Dead a few days ago on the PC through Steam and just finished Episode 1: A New Day today. A New Day is the only episode out right now with four others coming out one at a time later on in the year. Telltale Games is well known for their adventure games and that’s exactly what The Walking Dead is… and an amazing one at that.

    During the course of the first episode you are given several different choices, most of which determine whether who lives and who dies. The game promises to roll these choices over in the next episodes, giving your play through a chance to differ than others playing it. Upon completion of the episode stats are shown at the end as far as where you stand with others who have played through it and the choices you made.

    Graphically the game has a sort of cell shaded feel to it. Some of the textures are kind of muddy, but the overall feel of the game really goes well with the atmosphere. I’ve never read the comics of the same name before, but it definitely gives off a comic book feel. The Walking Dead is pretty brutal and bloody, but because of how the graphics is it really doesn’t seem as bad as it probably should. Nonetheless, you still get the horror zombie feel that you know and love.

    Controls are simple, mostly consisting of you either controlling the main character Lee or by controlling an on-screen cursor in order to find things in the environment to interact with… like smashing a zombie’s head in or handing a little girl an energy bar because she’s hungry.

    The grunts and moans of the zombies sound great and the soundtrack really adds a spooky ambiance to each situation that arises whether it be an intense fight with a walker or a moody conversation about someone that has just been killed.

    The first episode of The Walking Dead is a homerun in my opinion. If you love zombies and adventure games you really should pick this up. I just hope the great story telling and all the choices made in the first episode really transition well throughout the rest of the episodes.

    WARNING: IF YOU WANT TO RIDE AROUND ON A MOTORCYCLE WITH CHAINSAWS ATTACHED KILLING ZOMBIES, THIS ISN’T THE GAME FOR YOU.
    This game has definitely given me one of the most interactive, realistic experiences I could ever ask for in a simulated zombie apocalypse.
    The game is so much better by the fact that every little thing you do, say, and learn will effect the outcome of the game. This game isn’t about killing zombies, it’s about surviving. That’s what we’d be trying to do for real if every boy’s secret wish(zombie apocalypse) came true right?
    This game is definitely a lot more humbling than L4D or the other popular zombie games.
    I recommend this to anyone willing to try a realistic, that really puts you “in the character’s shoes”.
    Not to mention that the graphics are really like out of the comics.

    I’m just sad that I have to wait a little while for episode 2 to come out.
    Note: I have nothing against other zombie apocalypse games out there.
