I'll keep this relatively short, as I'm assuming you aren't exactly going to purchase this on a whim, it being an American import and all.

TellTale's The Walking Dead hands down has the best story of this generation. It will turn out in numerous ways creating a unique experience for everyone who plays. Story-wise this will take REALLY unexpected turns, engage you in terribly grim situations, and force you to determine the fates of many in seconds, this is heavy stuff. It lacks that Hollywood quality which I really respect. Each character is fantastic, some of which you will love and others you shall have genuine hatred for, one character in particular has had me feeling VERY protective over them, unusual for a game I know, but this is one unusual experience, as this is also the first game to ever make me cry, and many others I know also, which is a testament to how brilliant this is, and how fantastic the writers are.

It would be five stars, but the issue of jitteriness is something that must be explained. The transition between cut-scenes has a 4/5 second freeze, and the actual cutscenes are constantly stuttering, and seeing as there are so many cutscenes (this is a very cinematic game), it can be terribly immersion-breaking.

Don't let these technical problems that mar this outstanding game prevent you from making the purchase, as it stands as one of the most unforgettable and captivating experiences of this console generation.

Overall: 9/10 - not a 10 due to immersion breaking jitteriness.

And for those wondering whether or not an American game will work on UK/European consoles do not worry, all PS3 games are region free.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but so much in common with Mass Effect 3 13 Feb 2013
By STING
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Mass Effect 3 brought us a backwards game where our choices weren't actually choices but just hollow words.

Walking Dead unfortunately follows this.

My problem with the game is lack of actual choice, as we are forced into certain situations which have a pre-determined outcome.

For example, in a certain chapter (avoiding spoilers here) you come to a critical decision where you have to comment on whether someone is booted out of the group or not. You later find out how this could have been avoided but replaying the chapter and attempting to find a way to prevent a character being booted out doesn't work.

I thought this game would have a good amount of re-playability but it's severely lacking that. Your choices have little to no impact (bar a few decisions which don't actually affect the game). I played through this as an honest man and couldn't really play through as if I were in this scenario for real, so perhaps if I re-played it with opposite choices then certain characters would hate me. However in the end the outcome is the same and that is boring for me.

Having said that this is a gripping and intense game which keeps you wanting more. It can be clunky at times and rather straight forward, but you really care for these characters and want to help them survive.

My suggestion is that you weigh out the choices versus buying the disc or downloading it (mainly cost), but I've seen a fair few people complain about serious bugs so please do some research first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Draws you in! 18 Feb 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When first looking over this game, I was a little disappointed by the visuals. The effects, I thought, just wouldn't be able to capture everything that The Walking Dead is all about - and for a while, I believed this to be true.

However, upon playing through the first chapter, I realised what a great game this was becoming, dispite lacking great effects.

And let me say, I have completely changed my opinion, I believe that the graphics add charm and different dimensions to the world of The Walking Dead.

I absolutely loved this, utterly drawn in from start to finish, I couldn't stop playing it... And even when I wasn't playing, I was thinking about playing.

The game is based around your desicion making, and it gets you thinking - did I make the right choice back there? Is'so-and-so' going to be offended by this? What consequences is this going to have? You end up worrying what a character might think about you!

Ultimately, I was petrified for little Clem! She makes you feel as if you've lost your own child to a video game. I promise you, you'll fall in love with her instantly. She's so funny and you worry like mad every time a zombie's within 10 metres of her!

Some characters, on the other hand, you wish you had the power to take them out yourself...

One great thing about this game is, it saves automatically, and often, so you don't need to worry about stating whole levels again - you can just pick it up straight from the last place you got tackled by a zombie... or something/someone else.

I played this straight from the Playstation store, therefore experiencing agonising waits between chapters.
