The Wolf Among Us Icon
A wonderful story experience!
by Tana Pigeon, USA - Jun 2nd 2018

I have only played one other Telltale game, The Walking Dead. As much as I enjoyed that, The Wolf Among Us is a leap forward from TWD in my opinion. In every respect, Telltalle has raised the bar with Wolf: the story is gripping and makes sense, the options are numerous and matter, and there are very few places where you feel stuck because you're not making the right choice.

This last point is important for me. As much as I liked The Walking Dead, too often the game felt less like an immersive, interactive story, and more like a series of puzzles to solve. You can get stuck in a scene until you did the right things, and that ruined the feeling of being inside a story to me.

With Wolf, there may be a "correct" way to play out a scene, but if you do it the wrong way the story will still move forward without skipping a beat. This should satisfy both the puzzle fiends out there and the story fanatics at the same time.

The visuals are also a leap forward from TWD. Fabletown is just gorgeous, with beautifully constructed scenery in the typical Telltale fashion but with more care, in my opinion.

I can only judge Telltale Games based of TWD and Wolf, but since these two games seem to get the most acclaim I'm going to make the judgement that they have made a big step forward in their game-making process with Wolf. This game has made me a big fan of Telltale in a way that TWD did not, and if their future games maintain the same level of quality and style as Wolf does, I will buy everything they make from here on out.

Hard West Icon
Starts off fun, but buggy
by Tana Pigeon, USA - Jan 21st 2018

I found the game interesting, even if at times unintuitive in how to make it all work. The visuals and gameplay are good and it was initially engrossing for me, but I would hit the occasional bug in the game that whittled away my enjoyment of it. This seems like a game that could have used more playtesting. On that level, it feels a little amateurish to me. I eventually put it down before completing it since the flaws kept drawing me out of the drama of the game.

Among the Sleep Icon
Atomspheric and intriguing
by Tana Pigeon, USA - Jul 29th 2014

A creepy horror/mystery game told from the intriguing point of view of a two year old protagonist. The visuals and audio add to the atmosphere of the game. Much enjoyed.
