Being a relatively sheltered gamer, for the most part I haven’t opened myself to some of the titles that you would suspect gamers to play. However the Telltale franchise is to me a must try, I started of with The Walking Dead Season 1 and after playing that I went straight into Season 2 and just got addicted to it.
So when a friend recommended The Wolf Among Us I knew I would really get into it however because I didn’t know much about the story because I hadn’t read the comics I was a bit tentative and then forgot about it, however in the Black Friday Sales I noticed it on Steam and I bought it. Two days later I sat down to play it and completed it in 8 hours, and I have admit I completed it in two sittings because I just got into the story I didn’t want to put the game down.
As the only way I can compare this is to the Walking Dead I found it harder to get into in some respects because you didn’t know the back story as much, however after the first episode I had enough of the back story to understand the game and where it was going in a fantasy world. Although the Walking Dead was set in fantasy in the respects of Zombies it was in the real world and that is the different, however this game is full of fantasy characters so that was why it was harder to get what was going on really. Don’t let this point though put you off the series.
The graphics and game-play was also good and the only regret I have for the game is that I didn’t stream it because I would have really liked to share my experience. The story however blow my mind with the amount of twists it had, although I was expecting it because of what happened in The Walking Dead but for me these were completely different but I guess that was because I didn’t understand the whole universe other than what was in the game.
Overall I would give this a 9/10 just because I don’t give out 10’s easily and also I am aware that it might be more the style of game I have really enjoyed.
Will I be getting the new Game of Thrones series from Telltale? Hell Yes but I am putting it off until all the episodes are released because it will bug the hell out of me waiting for the next episode. As I am already waiting for Season 3 of The Walking Dead and hoping that they will do another for the Wolf Among Us. I think I might have ago at the Borderland game they have soon.
