"Story-Telling of the Dead In Its Finest"

➕ Story-Telling Video Game Genre
➕ The Walkers
➕ TV Episode-Like Presentation
➕ Plot Twists
➕ Lee & Clementine
➖ Minimal Glitches & Frame Rate Issues

Telltale Games have reinvigorated the story telling form of video genre in what is a contemporary master class in today's video game industry. While the TV series delve right into the characters of the popular The Walking Dead comic series, the video game utilizes the zombie universe established in the series to create a different yet unique set of stories that are truly heartbreaking and memorable. The first season of The Walking Dead (video game) realizes a zombie-infested United States where people struggle to survive, but the living is of more danger than the dead. Lee, the character you control in the game, is a convicted murderer who upon his conviction discovers the world in its demise. He would eventually be protecting a young girl named Clementine left alone by her parents who are having their vacation in Georgia. The story in itself is a masterpiece and truly a tear-jerker from its first to its final episode. You'll learn to love characters that will eventually come along as the game proceeds, the family of Kenny along with Clementine and Lee are those I invested my time and emotion with. There are some satisfying deaths as well especially those who have been a pull to the progress of their group, Lilly, Larry and Ben to name a few. There are some minimal glitches and issues I've encountered along the way but not enough to bring down how good this video game is. Telltale created a new formula where decision-making is an important aspect in progressing towards the story. The story is linear and predictable at times but you'll love and hate some twists that are very much contributory to how damn good this video game really is. The Walking Dead (video game), in its first season, is already beautiful to begin with the story complementing it wonderfully. I give the game a 9/10 for being one of today's best recommended video games in the market.
