Hats off to Telltale for not resting on their laurels with The Wolf Among Us, but stepping out and creating a new adventure series that is shaping up to be brilliantly bleak and gritty but joyously fun.
The Walking Dead may have more gore than puzzles, but by striking out in a new direction that focuses on atmospheric storytelling, Telltale delivers one their most compelling and enjoyable titles to date.
It took a while to be told, but The Book of Unwritten Tales holds an epic adventure between its pages, bringing to life a gorgeous, multi-dimensional, quest-laden world of glittering seas and fiery mountains, and filling it with some of the most endearing game characters of all time.
Not quite perfect, this Broken Sword: Director’s Cut is still the best port of an adventure game on the DS to date. Whether experiencing the game for the first time or reliving old memories, there is much for everyone to enjoy in this game.
If you only play one King’s Quest game, make it this one. It’s the only game in the series where story and gameplay come together in perfect balance, and after a decade of working to get it right, it’s one of the best games Sierra gave us.
Just slightly below Reality 2.0 on the list of great episodes; it’s laugh-out-loud funny, with very intelligent puzzle design and a totally demented self-contained story which interjects demonic possession into a sacred holiday. An absolute must-play.
This game, and this season as a whole, is completely, certifiably nutso. And therein lies the magic and the charm of the experience. It's a wonderful experience when it's not straining under the weight of its own ambition.
