This was rented out from the local video store as my husband is a big fan of The Walking Dead comics and TV series. Two Walking Dead games came out at the same time and after a bit of a toss up between the two he decided to borrow this one.
This isn't your typical game, and if you're looking for a movie where you get to slice and dice the undead, don't bother with this game. You play Lee who is on his way to jail when the police car crashes and he wakes up to the nightmare that is zombies. He ends up meeting a little girl named Clementine and vows to protect her and help her find her family.
You do get to walk around and interact with the environment but this is very much a puzzle of a game. Think if this game as a 'pick your own adventure', you are at times engaged in dialogue and you get to pick what to say, pick nothing and your answer is picked for you. This can effect not only what people think of you but who lives and who dies.
This is a great game to bring back the genre, even better is reports that the decisions made in this game will affect how the next game even begins!
