[Note : This review applies to both Season 1 and Season 2 taken together but applies to each one individually]
Before buying this game, I didn't expect anything special. I knew it had good reviews and that's why I tried it.
It turned out to be by far the BEST COMMERCIAL PRODUCT I've ever bought in my LIFE, better than any movie, game, book or anything else I've ever bought so far.
The game genre is said to be a "Point'n'Click", but in fact it isn't that much ; there is no puzzle, there is just the story, and you implicated in it.
I couldn't say this is a "game" though, you won't play, but you will be told a story, a beautiful story in witch you will be emotionnaly implicated as long as it speaks you to.
Basically, I could say that the game is a big cutscene that you influate by your actions (by what you say in fact, choosing how to answer to the main characters). I KNOW that it sounds strange or bad, but it isn't, there is no way to properly describe how good this "game" is.
To be a bit more clear, I would only see 3 reasons why someone could not like a game like that :
● They don't like cell-shading graphics (look at the screenshots)
● They absolutely hate stories that take place in a Zombie Apocalypse environnement
● They don't have a good English Level or don't know how to Install translations (2nd Season is in Full-English)
+ Incredibely good voice-acting and credible characters
+ The way you are emotionally implied in the story, never had I seen that before in ANY game
+ The possibility to "influence" the story and that you always feel that what's happening is because of your choices
+ The whole story is intense, everything is useful, there would be no part to scrap down, I wasn't bored a SINGLE SECOND.
+ Clementine as a deuteragonist (Season 1) and protagonist (Season 2), Tomboys as a main character FTW. :heart:
+ The story is in NOW WAY predictable, you never know what will happen next.
+ Incredibly good "filming" and animation and character facial expression, as good and even better than most TV Series.
+ The end... really... only time I cried in a Video Game.
+ Good Music (special mention for the End Credits)
+ Simple controls : WASD + Mouse
+ There is no need of a Gaming PC to run this, most computers will do the job
+ You don't play this game, this is the game that plays you
- It has an end... no really... NO CON
(-) Can have some resolution problems that can be fixed by the simple addition of a line in the start options on Steam
(-) Translations in other languages than English are fan-made, the one for Season 2 isn't included with the Game ; play in English if you could for maximal effect.
Conclusion : A MUST-TRY (at least in Sales, and at least for Season 1), 11/10 : best "game" and product I've ever purchased in my life ; I know that every game I'll play for a decade will surely not be as good as this one ; this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, THANKS Telltale Games =) + please, Clementine again in Season 3 :beg:
PS. There is absolutely no need to know the Comic Series or the TV Series "The Walking Dead" to enjoy this game, the story is an original one based on the Comics.
PSS. You will certainly need a little time to fully enter in the story, try to play at least 2 hours before saying that you definitely don't like it or you could miss something.
PSSS. You need to play this "game" ALONE for a maximum effect.
