Well I Don’t Know to me this is getting ridiculous, I understand the retro feel and everything, but I feel like they are abusing the the retro feel.

Next game will be what? Pong graphics?

I appreciate every kind of style, but sometimes it feel to me like an easy way out of making decent graphics.

Cool double-header, guys. Although I have trouble with first-person games, since it’s so short I might have to pick up Moon Sliver.

Actually, both of these games seem right up my alley, and Moon Sliver reminds me (vaguely) of a short story I wrote recently. I enjoy experimentalism in games a bit more than the average Joe, so these seem like definite winners for my taste.

Arrrgh, bought this on a whim and regretting it. The difficulty is unforgiving, and doesnt give you a chance to start having fun before you just lose over and over.

I’m about at three quarters of the game I think, and enjoying it immensely. The thoroughness with which all is researched and Holmes’ way of finding out the facts are amazing.
Looking for the real Whitechapel murders on the internet I found a beautiful page about where the murders took place, complete with then and now pictures: http://jakemcmillan.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/jack-the-ripper-murder-sites-then-now/

I can’t believe that such fantastic game could be bashed like this and receive such shameful score! Only at Adventure gamers!

“I have to mention one of the final scenes. You are faced with a scenario where your own morals, judgement and authority is in question.”

It would have been nice if the game actually had supplied different answers. As it stands, there’s only one ending and a couple of cosmetic “shame on you” dialogue lines.

Disappointed on especially final episode. The first episode was brilliant, magnificent and pure joy. But as we moved closer and closer to the grand finale each episode lacked a bit of.. something. In my opinion they felt a bit rushed och chopped up. I rate Wolf among us episode 1 5 stars,  episode 2 4.5 stars.. and then the rest between 3 - 3.5

I find it very hard to rate this uneven episodic game. The walking dead season 1 was much easier since it felt like it was great till the very end.

The Voice Acting, The Graphics, The Writing (story, themes & dialogue) and most of the puzzles are excellent. But then you have all these annoyances which spoil the experience. The shooting sections are primitive. The controls are unnecessarily awkward (enable “Toggle action-whatever” helped me). The GUI isn’t great either: it made an early puzzle seem like I froze/crashed the game (it turns out the controls in the menu were locked, sigh).

It feels a lot like The Swapper except the puzzles are not self-contained to rooms, there are action scenes, and there is “find the objects to progress” adventure game mechanics. Ok, so not like The Swapper. Still a good game. 4 stars.

5 Stars. A brilliant finish to an inspired series. The writing team and Art Direction should be applauded.

I have to mention one of the final scenes. You are faced with a scenario where your own morals, judgement and authority is in question. This is what TellTale is all about, it worked, and I feel like the conclusion of TheWolfAmongUS season paid off with a suitable ending whatever-you-chose (I hope it is season 1, please tell me there is a season 2).

Although there a few complaints but they are minor quibbles that are really due to the format of Telltale games For example the Author identified the story notifications as an annoyance. It might be a problem for the Author but I think it adds much needed clarity to the consequences. Other than that I don’t much like Action scenes in adventure games and Episode 5 has fairly involved action scenes.

Wonderful game indeed. Great review too. Its so true there is few games thats good to play again and this one is it for sure. It’s so good that it make me look after similar games like Culpa Innata and Goin’ Downtown - this one is most similar to TMOS.

I loved this game completely. I played it on a huge HD monitor with my headphones on and man I felt I was really outt-space. Most of my friends dislike this game because there is no killing, or much dialog, but hey that’s what most non adventure gamers are into.

Give it a try, and be prepared to be in a Lifeless Planet, not in the Island of Mêlée.

The story and presentation was first rate, the actual game play was less than stellar and the demon avoid sequences were beyond annoying.

I recommend to anyone who gets this to get the freely available trainer and turn on invisibility. The game will look normal but the demons can’t see you. This removes the annoying sequences and makes the game actually fun.

Only a 4 hour game if you are just doing the main story, insanely short considering the production values…
