What is everybody's opinions on the latest GwG: The Walking Dead?
For me, the first time I've played through, the idea of CHOOSING how I conversate with the various characters in the game while the story goes on is thrilling and consequential just like in real life. I've often get so overwhelmed of the increasing tension and having my choices be shown, not just by the game itself but the characters themselves, I've paused the game multiple times to get my breath. I've never seen such a simple concept with a strong presence and story.
That said, the game has stuttered during play, specifically after dialog choices and transitions poorly at times. It made me realize that the experience was a bit jaded, however my biggest complaint is that clues can drag on for a while despite the limited playspace. I'm playing on 360, is the experience different on the Xbox ONE?
Even if I'm done playing the episodes from beginning to end and getting all the achievements, I feel that it actually encourages multiple playthroughs (which I will do, to see what else could've happened). I could see some events happen from a mile away, sorta like a TV show. I haven't even seen The Walking Dead yet I feel the story is substantial enough to stand in its own without prior knowledge to the show or comics. Who else thinks so? And I'm considering purchasing the Season 2 of The Walking Dead, but having bits and pieces of context sold to me doesn't seem practical to me. I'm glad the whole first season was free tho to get people invested in it. Its easy gameplay also makes it accessible for everybody to enjoy its multiple story branches that YOU could shape with the interactions.
Pick up The Walking Dead, even if you haven't seen the material before. You will get invested and feel of the atmosphere and characters and IT"S FREE (until the end of the month).
