The Wolf Among Us is a game I never really expected much from, but was completely blown away. I will even admittedly say that I may have even enjoyed this series more than TellTale's famous The Walking Dead series.
--Summary down blow--Gameplay
The game play is reminiscent to TellTales other adventure games. You progress through the story by investigating areas to find useful information or a way of proceding to the next area. Their is no complex puzzles or anything to get you stuck as the game is heavily story related so it tries to keep you progressing.
Most of the gameplay is about carefully choosing your response to conversations or story event where you must choose between doing X or doing Y. Quicktime events fill in alot of the action parts and add to the intensity.Graphics
The cell shaded art style fits perfectly into this world they have created. The characters are well drawn and animated, some feel very recognizable. The facial movements and body movements look good, however some people still seem to walk like they have a stick up their butt(This is an issue I have with all TellTale games).
The world they have created sets the perfect setting for how the story takes place. The amount of detail they went into on some of the level design is very well done, even in places you arent around for very long. Its nice to see them still put the detail in to make this feel like a live breathing world.Audio
The sound is done very well in The Wolf Among Us. The background noise and ambience was well done. The music is superb for the style they are going for in this game. The theme song kinda reminds me of Farcry 3: Blood Dragon music. The ingame music was very good at setting the mood for the events happening as well as for the areas you were exploring.
The voice over work is phenomenal and is what brings this story to life. The voices chosen for each character fit their rolls perfectly. Not once did I hear any voice that I thought to myself "that doesn't fit". The emotions are portrayed very well through their voices and sucks the player into the story. Top notch voice acting all around.Story
The story is where this game really shines. I must admit I was never really interested in this game, nor did I really here to much about it, other than "Its good". So I went in knowing nothing about the plot or anything. Wow was I blown away by what I experienced.
It takes place in a place known as "Fabletown" which is a small community of fables built on the outskirts of a real world city(I believe its New York). This community is build up of Fables who have left "The woodlands" and have moved into city to live in a real society. However when murders start happening, fabletown turns to terror.
You, Bigby Wolf, AKA the big bad wolf, being the sheriff must hunt down and get to the bottom of whoever is behind it. One way or Another. This is The Wolf Among Us's biggest feature. The choices. Every choice you make in this game effects the story severely, even more than TellTales other games. In the walking dead when you madea choice it always felt like no matter what you did it would still end up being the same result, however the wolf among us does the opposite. Every choice effects how people in fabletown view you, which in turn effects trust, reliability, story arc changes and much more. You begin to really care about the characters. You begin to take more time with decisions, knowing that what you do could make characters love or hate you and this could effect how useful they are to you down the line.
The story progresses very fluently and keeps you wanting to know more. Their are loads of plot twists that will keep your mind bumbling for more answers. Just when you think you got it figured out, *BAM!!* plot twist. my only complaint about the story was that it was rather short, I played through all 5 episodes in less than 8hrs.Summary
After going into this game knowing nothing about it other than "its good", I must say I was blown away by the world they created, and The story had me hooked and thinking about it even when I wasnt playing. The way this game makes you care for its characters is incredible and the obsolutely phenomenal voice over work brings them to life with a voice. The animation and level design is gorgeously done in TellTale's signature cell shaded art and everything plays very smooth with a smooth looking framerate, which is I know alot of problem had with the first season of the walking dead.
If you are looking for a game with a unique world and setting, with an amazing story. Then you will love the Wolf Among Us. If you are on the fence about this game, its definetly worth the buy. For a game I wasnt expecting much out of, I must say I think this may be my favourite game created by TellTale(Yes even better than the walking dead).
