4.0 out of 5 stars Great game but......., 22 Aug 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Walking Dead (PS3) (Video Game)
Havent read the books or seen the tv series, but was curious about it, I loved the old adventure games on ps1 like discworld and broken sword, this was the nearest thing to it. Best way of describing it is Heavy rain meets The last of us. Obviously this came out before TLOU but the plot is similar (guy helps out child in world of monsters). What I really liked was how the story and dialogue changed with the decisions you made. There is no good or bad decisions just have to live with the consequences and how people see you as a result. Do you steal from an abandoned car or leave it? Do you help kill someone who may be dying or help try to revive them? The story and characters were great, not a big fan of kids but I did care what clementine the 8 year old girl thought of me and felt bad if she saw me do something unpleasant. I recommended this to my brother as i wanted to see how he would react in these situations as he's a father and im not and if he would be more protective. I also LOVED the graphic style of this game, not everything has to be hyper-realistic.

While I can't fault the story,graphiccs or gameplay itself, the bugs nearly cripple it at times especially during episode 3 as i had to replay a certain section 4 times before it would let me pass. This was especially infuriarting as i was desperate to see what happened next.

All in all a great experience marred by technical hitches but that wont stop me from getting season 2 of this game series. i just hope they sort those bugs out 1st!

PS easy platinum too which is always a bonus
