    Never read the comics, nor seen the TV show. But by all accounts the comics are far superior, and the TV show has gotten even worse.
    I'd disagree that the show has got worse, the first half of series 3 has been excellent.

    As for the game, I've played up to episode 4 and it's been fantastic, one of the best games I've played in the last 12 months.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Finished this last night. My GOTY.

    Can't wait for season 2!

    Any guesses as to who the two figures at the end post credits were? I don't think it's Omid and Christa.

    I've read all the comics up to this point so I'm thinking who else it could be...

    So I'm glad Telltale have the license they do. Having two Walking Dead titles (3 if you include season 2 of the Telltale game) on the market won't be good for either though, it'll cause confusion.
    Cause confusion with who? The ATVI one uses imagery from the TV show on the box and is a retail title.

    And if you haven't read the comics or seen the show how would you know? They are both equally great for different reasons.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Noooo. Don't ask me how, but this has glitched out on me and started from ep 1. Which has now overwritten ep 4.

    Is there any way to just play ep 5?

    Never mind. Found out how.

    Finally completed this after a three week break in the middle of episode five. What a story (let down by predictable anthropophagy).

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Finally got round to this and have just finished Episode 4...

    Much better experience than I was expecting...One thing that has to be said is that when there's no more room in hell, the horrible controls will roam the earth...

    Christ, who play-tested the FPS bits and thought that was a good idea? At the very least it could have given the option to flip the Y axis...

    Anyway, very minor niggle in an otherwise fantastic game...
    Sticking with all my choices so far except one where obviously instead of (episode 4 spoiler) shooting the zombie off Molly the sight drifted away and I put a round in her head...

    The end of Ep 4 did set up something I'd suspected from the get go (that it'll be a final choice between Lee or Clementine)...Though it will probably throw some more surprises my way...

    @AcidSnake yeah, i hate when they don't let you flip the y-axis in games. Still, at least the FPS sections are few and pretty short.

    Just finished this the last week. Really enjoyed it although I thought the last episode was a little anticlimactic.

    It's amusing just how much the story and characters are more interesting than the tv series equivalent.

    Wow - I think I'm cursed when it comes to trying to play this game.

    I purchased the first three episodes on the 360, only to have my save corrupted three times.

    I've now purchased it on Steam (via the Amazon.com offer) - but the game will not start up when installed. I get some kind of 'sync' error...then nothing.

    I've just tried removing the game entirely and then reinstalling, but the same thing happens.

    Any tips - apart from seeing a spiritual advisor?

    Finally played the fifth and last 'The Walking Dead' episode.

    ... big huge wow!

    As soon as Lee started to mentor Clementine to use a gun, I had a horrible gut feeling that she may well end up finishing his life, one way or another.

    Although I was sad, I couldn't quite feel (heavily) emotional because I have people coming and going through the living room so, I could hardly play on my lonesome and invest in the characters quite like the way some of you folks could do unfortunately.

    I was very much on no-ones side throughout the tale except Clementine however, I did stick up for the female characters more often than the blokes, especially Larry and the chap who ended his life, Kenny.

    I could not believe I sided with Kenny almost throughout the entire series for him to tut and moan at me during one particular part in episode five ... he never helped Lee and for all the kindness I showed him, he was actually an ungrateful little sod.

    He almost redeemed himself when he stayed by Ben's side to his - and their - eventual end.

    Oh, and I must say, I thought Chuck was a wasted character (died way too soon), Molly was too helpful to disappear so abruptly and Lilly's story seems so unresolved ... maybe a few threaded tangles may hopefully reappear in series two?

    And finally, whilst I though the ending was super sad, the part that got to me the most was actually the little boy in the attic. I was heartbroken and really didn't enjoy ending his life at all ... so harmless.

    : (


    It's going to be a painful wait until the next series ... do hurry along please!

    I played and completed all 5.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 11:26:33
    WTF.

    I seem to have missed chapter 4.

    But that can't be right.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 11:28:46
    No wait. I definitely did Episode 4. Girl with the climbing axe thing.

    But I have no achievements for it. Weird.

    finished it, as others amazing....

    one question, does the game change completely if you replay it but with different choices, for example if you save hursels boy over duck if the first episode, do you get to stay on the farm for example

    or is it all just how you are perceived etc

    I've lost my save game on the 360 for the second time. It happened the first time when I first bought episode 3, and I used the fix to get it back. So I got a fairly long way into the episode before hitting the hay last night, and tried to go back to finish it just now and my saves gone again. I tried the fix again but now my progress is wiped to the start of episode three! So frustrating.

    People might get the Activision one and expect it to tie into the Telltale game/storyline. Or vice versa. Or it might be not very good and put people off the Telltale version. That's all I meant.

    I finished this earlier too. I played most of it this month after getting it during Christmas, but I'll put it down as my GOTY too. In fact it's one of the most memorable games I've ever played. Easily the one I've been most emotionally invested in, in 15+ years of gaming.

    I'm thankful the game lets you pause it whilst making conversation decisions. I'd often have to think about choices for a fair few seconds. Often I'd regret my decisions and I really admire how everything you do and say has an effect in some way later on, whether significant or not.

    I wouldn't have thought a zombie title would ever be something I'd fall in love with. The same goes for a title which could be called an 'interactive movie'. If anything it's a little too bleak and depressing though.

    @Syrette you paused the game to make the decision? - but the cool thing was the time and pressure put under you to make them!

    Aw well different strokes for different folks!

    @Paulie_P

    Not all the time. And I agree with you. But on the other hand I found myself caring so much that I wanted to really think about the potential consequences. Which says a lot about just how well written I think the game is.

    Started and compleated chapter 1 last night (360) and loved it. I was suprised by a few of the stats at the end of the chapter though...You uncaring bastards ;)

    Yeah, the best way to play it is to stay in the moment. The decisions are always tough and staying in the moment made your choice that much more important to me.

    As a few reviews have pointed out, it's not worth replaying to see what changes because it will just reveal how little does (spoiler: everyone dies!). Best to play through just once and make that *your* playthrough.

    I liked the way Telltale backed this up with the achievements as opposed to Heavy Rain, when the director said that he only intended for people to play the game once but then had achievements which required multiple playthroughs with different choices.

    Pretty sure it's no-one in particular...Just a scene to show Clem's reaction to them...Will possibly become characters in season 2...

    Yeah, just thought it could perhaps be someone from the comic, but there are so many characters that it's pretty impossible to tell.

    Is it possible for Omid and Christa to die?
