"Brutal. Beautiful. Brilliant."

REVIEW |

Author: John Arkontaky  

(Continuation)

The dialogue and overall writing for The Walking Dead: The Game should be applauded as some of the most impressive writing of this console generation. Clementine's character development alone puts this game past 99% of other games. We just don't see such a strong emphasis on characters pay-off in other games, but it is the biggest payoff in this episodic series. Telltale Games not only perfectly echoed Robert Kirkman's zombie universe, the company created a story and world that stands on its own and adds great value to The Walking Dead's canon.

In the end, Telltale Games made every right decision for this game. The episodic releases broke the story up into chunks that make sense, rather than letting players choose where to get on and off the train. The gameplay could have been tighter, but it triumphs even in its flaws. Last but not least, the writing and careful crafting of characters in The Walking Dead can't be emphasized enough. The combination of leaders, cowards, racists, and children mixed in the cauldron of the apocalypse brewed a chaotic storm that is truly awesome. 


GameDynamo's Score for The Walking Dead: The Game (X360)
Graphics
The comic-book style is rarely used in games, but it pays homage to The Walking Dead comics and gives it a unique feel.
Sound
The dialogue doesn't seem incredible at first, but the interweaved story, cliffhangers, and overarching story makes for an impressive, memorable experience.
Gameplay
The puzzles and action sequences are perhaps this game's only flaw, but they by no means hamstring the game.
Play Value
A true episodic journey that is brutal and beautiful. Turn the lights off and get ready for an experience worth remembering.
 
Final Score  94Editors Choice
The Walking Dead: The Game will chew you up and spit you out, and you'll come back begging for more. A hands-down must-play game.
