TAKING CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONES BY THE END OF THE WORLD
I played Telltale's The Walking Dead game for the first time when the first episode came out. I was already a fan of the show and of course i needed to check this one out as well.
First, the graphics got my eye and it took me a while to get used to it. I think they're pretty and it have this own kind of unique feeling. Sure the movement and action is a bit doll-like time to time but however, they make it look good.
Secondly, there are versatile characters who are all interesting. Some of them are hateful, some reasonable, some stupid and some lovable. Especially Clementine, who need to have her own series or movie along with the game. She's so adorable and brave for her age, that you just wanna take care of her. It's interesting, but also breathtaking to see how this little girl, who yet haven't seen any bad things in her life, have to deal with this quickly chancing world around her and get used to grow part of it mentally such as physically if she's going to survive on it. But luckily, she doesn't need to do this alone.
Lee Everett, the playable character is kind and thoughtful, but also tough and sometimes maybe too direct with his actions. But he needs to be. Even against his own nature if he going to keep Clementine safe and sound and train her for the new world. Even if it means to his life.
Story is well written such as full of emotions, twists and decisions which effect partly the course of the story.
Mood is realistic, intense, scary and sometimes peaceful as well. I also liked the lighting a lot and it shows best at the second episode, Starved For Help which is my favorite episode from the season.
The game stays true to the show and comics, which i've readed bunch but yet not all. The end was sad and emotional, but it gaved interesting and long awaited start for a second season.
