Hmmmm....

I'm not so sure this is a game rather than an interactive movie. That being said, I enjoyed it. It's on sale for $15 from Steam and frankly, I can't explain why, but I think you should play it. The graphics stutter at times (might be an ATI issue) which shouldn't happen considering their low quality but the story IS engaging. Having a short period of time to make major decisions results in some interesting choices. The sense of urgency is there.

So yeah, not sure why, but I think you should play this.

1971simon: I think you should play this

I wholeheartedly second this opinion! Daaaayyyyyaaaaammmmmmmm, man!

I bought The Walking Dead during the Steam summer sale and am just now getting around to playing it. Played Episode 1 last night and Episode 2 tonight. There are some extremely tense moments in this game - not for the squeamish for sure!

Be warned though - only 3 of 5 Episodes are currently available. I'm hesitant to play the 3rd 'cuz I don't want to be left hanging too long! :D

I'll likely go back and replay, intentionally making some different choices at major turning points to see what happens differently.

Based on the lack of fanfare here, I'm guessing this game is currently quite under-rated.

Just played the latest episode tonight. Man, it's good. Catches you in it's hooks and won't let go. It's 12:30 and bed time now. But I had to get the episode done. If you start from scratch make sure you have some time on your hands....

Wow, latest episode is intense. It also shows that there were lots of choices along the way. Very interesting.

Anyone else playing it?

I'm still on Episode 1 - unfortunately, like pretty much everyone on my Steam Friends list, I have become entirely absorbed by X-Com.

If you haven't got that, go buy it now. It's fab. An excellent and updated remake of the original. Really really good.

Episode 5 was brutal. Play the game right through if you can, always playing at least 2 episodes in a row to keep you in the mood.

Stick through the credits.
