Halloween Gaming Blog #17 The Walking Dead

Ok we covered the series and now we are covering the not the crappy first person shooter that they tried to push out to just make money. I am talking about the awesome game by teltale games.
This game follows the adventures of a survival group starting at the time that the zombie plague first started taking over. This game reflects the different issues that come up during the show and puts you in the driver's seat in this stylish point and click adventure.
This game works as a mostly point and click adventure you make conversation and must at times react quickly in order to survive to the best of your ability. The game records your actions and conversation in order to gage what they will say and do later. This makes for a customizable adventure and the game even compares each episodes major choices to other players of the game so you can have fun. The game has a rich and riveting story the biggest draw to this game. You will keep wanting to come back for more and you will quickly find you have gone through the whole thing.
As cool as the dynamics might be this game only offers limits in what you can do with the characters and is at best a video game version of the old school choose your own adventure books. And even if you choose different action there are really only two ending options for this game. so in truth the only episode you should have any interest in playing over is the last.

This is a good story and would have been better served as an animated video or live action spin off.
