Honor Among Thieves !Spoilers!
Ok the first thing i want to talk about is The Walking Dead/game.I loved it.It was a breath of fresh air.They could easily ruined it by making it a shooter.Yet they went the other route.Implementing timed choices that affect your relationship with others Both positively and negatively.A story that is well written.Though their would be certain parts i wish they gave you more options or at the least different options.
On to the good.The game has pleasant visuals even though it's only a arcade game.As i said earlier the story is well written.It also keeps you entertained wanting more.The game is fun to play.The game also keeps a good pace managing between the slow calm times and when you need to take action.I also enjoyed the timed choices .
Now on to the bad.While i enjoyed the timed choices for the most part.I also feel the urgency they create.Gets negated by the game itself.What i mean is no matter what you choose the game goes on the same path.It basically makes all your choices moot.I feel they should of made your choices meaningful.
And what i mean by that is that good choices will save others or generally have a positive effect.Bad ones will get your party killed or have a negative effect.I do want to clarify the whole good/bad shouldn't be the same as nice/mean..This way if you want to be a A****** but you are smart you keep your party alive.This holds true if you want be nice but are dumb you can get your party killed.
Which brings up another point is the dumbness of the certain situations.Usually you having to pick on who to save.Like on the farm why did i have to choose to save the boy or Shawn?Why didn't Kenny save him leaving me the ability to save Shawn?Or in the drugstore between Carly and Doug.Why didn't she stomp the zombie save herself letting you save Doug?or Why didn't Lee hack off his own arm immediately after he was bitten?
Now we come to the ending.Which left a sour taste in my mouth.Though one i should have seen coming alot sooner than i did.They did a fantastic job of building a solid relationship between Lee and Clem and making them genuinely likeable characters.Characters that you care about.Only to give you the middle finger.And make Clem's situation worse than it was at the start of the story.
Now that sounds like i disliked the game.Which is untrue.Those are more of corrections i would like to see when they do season 2.They have a fantastic model to work with that can get better.Or if they do nothing or pick the wrong choices can get worse.
Here is the last issue i would like to touch upon and this has more to do with the tv series rather than the game.They say that they are infected.Which would be fine.If it wasn't for the fact in the first 2 seasons.They showed plenty of non zombies that died.That didn't turn.Which is something i would like to know.At what point did they all become infected?And how?
Anyway those are my thoughts.I know some might say this belongs as a game review. But to be honest it didn't feel like one.This was more of a wishlist/rant rather than a review.Thanks for reading.
