Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of The Walking Dead: Episode One from Telltale Games. The game adaptation of Robert Kirkman's graphic novel series is a five part episodic adventure horror game that will follow the struggles of survivors attempting to live in a world filled with undead.
Here's an excerpt:
If you're expecting the likes of Left 4 Dead then TWD is not for you. While there are a number of panicky, intense and gruesome action sequences, the focus of the game is character drama and interaction, along with small doses of puzzles and exploring. It plays out like an interactive graphic novel more than anything else, which is either a good or bad thing depending on what you expect. This allows it to feel grounded and weighty and take a more deliberate pacing, though at the cost of any deep gameplay. There's simply not that much to do in the game other than talk to people, solve a few short puzzles and madly scramble away from or fight against the undead. Personally, I didn't mind this and found myself immersed and thoroughly entertained every step of my two hour journey through episode one. But those looking for a more traditional point and click adventure experience may be disappointed in the lack of exploration and puzzle solving, which is minimal.Check it out at the link below.
