The Walking Dead Collector's Edition
A Masterpiece in Interactive Storytelling.
First of all, this is not a game you can pick up, play for 5 minutes, put down and determine your opinion of. The graphics aren't the "best on the market" and the game occasionally suffers from minor frame drops and glitches. However, the character development and the choices the game presents the player with more than make up for its minor technical shortcomings. This game is a very deep, personal emotional experience unlike anything I've ever experienced with a video game. And it is every bit as intense as the television series; maybe even more so due to its interactivity. This is a game not only for fans of the show, but for fans of puzzle-solving, action and a narrative that is completely tailored to how you play the game. If you're looking for some high-budget, blow-your-face-off-with-SFX garbage, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for something that will stick with you and that you will really value owning... something you'll be happy to have on your shelf, pre-order this game. If you give it your time and attention, you will not be disappointed. Unless you have a heart made of stone, that is.
My Dream Come True (Almost Literally)
For years I have dreamt of a game that really made you cautiously think about what you did, and why. A game that takes every decision you make into account, and changes the rest of the game accordingly. Finally, that game is real. And it's name is The Walking Dead. I want to say this to those who criticize the 'bad graphics': The graphics for this game are not *supposed* to be high-end. If you notice, the graphics actually resemble the art from the Comic Books, which I believe this Game follows more than the television show. What you play this game for, anyway, is the touching feeling, the awe-inspiring story that really makes you think about the world; Not just the post-apocalyptic world of the Walking Dead, but also our world, and how we treat each other. From the very beginning, you are held at the edge of your seat, until a complete upset at the very end (no spoilers!). I HIGHLY recommend this game, and implore you to give it a shot if you haven't already.
Snag This Collector's Edition!
With the standard edition of TellTale's The Walking Dead being around $30, this collector's edition is more than double the price... and doubly enticing!
While not the most visually impressive of games (as critics have pointed out), for players looking for an immersive experience delivering a story that will maul your feels faster than any zombie, TellTale's take on The Walking Dead is a definite must have!
Not fitting easily into any single genre, the game is best described as a mixture between RPG and point-and-click puzzle solving. That isn't to say it isn't without fast paced, hair raising moments of alarm - FAR from it! The choices you must make as Lee Everett, a man with a darkened past that will either shape him or be put behind him, won't be easy... and at times, may even trouble you.
For fans of both the series and game's engrossing storyline, this CE is something that's too good to pass up for what it includes. The bumped up price is explained by the largest item in the package - a 1000+ page compendium of the first 48 comics that are the source for this The Walking Dead craze. With exclusive artwork by the series artist Charlie Adlard, those who enjoyed the game but aren't familiar with the original comic series will find this a treat. Get this fast! The Walking Dead CE is an EXTREMELY LIMITED item. Don't miss out!
I am pumped.
I had always hoped that the game would come in a hardcopy one day, and it's finally happening. Along with the first 48 installments in the The Walking Dead graphic novels? Wow.
JUST TRY IT! IT WILL TEST YOU CHARACTER
OK FINE....... JUDGE THE GAME BEFORE YOU PLAY.... I KNOW THIS GAME MADE ME SEE WHAT I AM MADE OF AS A MAN... WHAT WILL YOU CHOOSE IN A LOSE LOSE SITUATION??? LIVING A HORROR NOVEL... HMPH ITS BETTER THAN COMPANIES THESE DAYS JUST BARFING OUT GAMES FOR PROFIT.. THIS IS SOUL! IT WILL EARN ITS PLACE WITH EXISTING GAMES LIKE FALLOUT AND RED DEAD EVEN THE UPCOMING GAMES LIKE LAST OF US. THIS GAME SHOWS THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A SUPER HIGH GRAPHIC SHOOTER TO BE GREAT. I HAVE MY ($69.99) SECURED
I bought the download and finished this game. Ppl can hate on the graphics but it was a amazing game. Every choice you make leaves you wondering after you finish what if i let this happen. Like if what would happen you let someone die instead of saving them? The controls and camera angle could definitely use work though.
Been waiting for this...
I've been waiting for them to release all the episodes on one disc! The Collector's Edition also comes with the Compendium and exclusive artwork.
Leaves you wanting more. Spoiler
I played all 5 episodes with enthusiasm. I watch the Walking Dead on AMC and it is absolutely THE best show on tv (or even theatrical movies). This game was just as cool! I never had any of the graphics problems as few have posted because I own a Nvidia GTX 550 TI (not the best but, a high mid-range card that plays BF3 on Ultra). At first you think, "Man, I don't like the graphics", till you play for awhile and get adjusted to the comic book look and feel. I just wish they hadn't killed off the main character. It would have been nice for a continual series like the show and comic book.
The Walking Dead Review
The Game Is Absolutely Amazing So Amazing It Made "Game Of The Year" At The Vga Game Rewards And I Love The Collectors Edition Only Thing I Wish Is The Game Case Would Be A Steel Case Only Thing Besides That The Story Is Amazing And Gives A Emotional Bond With The Character Looking Forward For Season 2 And I Give This A Thumbs Up For Anyone Reading This Thank You For Your Time And Merry Christmas
LOVE THE SHOW, HATE THIS GAME!!!!
I played the demo on my PS3, I absolutely hated it!! The graphics were horrible, and the movement/choice options were in the stone age. The camera angles were very bad, and you cannot adjust it. When you fight a zombie a hand icon appears and you have to push it and repeatedly tap square or the corresponding button that comes on the screen over and over. That is what a fight in the game consists of. Very lame, and extremely sad given that I am huge fan of the series. Save your money, because you will kick yourself when you get this game home.
