Make every choice like it's your last... The world we knew is gone. The dead have risen to feed on the living. The living cannot be trusted. Starving. Never safe. Looking for hope. What would you do? The Walking Dead is a critically acclaimed adventure horror game set in Robert Kirkman's award-winning universe. Beginning when Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes is still in a coma, this is a new story telling the tale of Lee Everett - a man given a second chance at life in a world of the undead. Taking an orphaned girl under his wing, Lee must deal with true horror under the constant threat of walkers hungry for flesh... as well as other survivors, desperate enough to do anything to stay alive.

To TellTale Games is ultimately a work not to be missed. The mere price (about 20 € for the entire collection) should be lean when purchased "as is", without considering the various offers of this period still festive, they saw and see the gift in the first episode, for example, . But even beyond the purely economic aspects of The Walking Dead is one of the must-see experiences of this generation, a game to be savored episode after episode leaving drag by the lapels always unexpected, able to tap into the deep even the most experienced player, leading him to identify himself with the progonista which had not happened for years. An adventure at the same time simple and complex, with no unnecessary gooders to which we are accustomed too from Robert Kirkman and in perfect style. A series of events that will hit you like a punch in the stomach, leaving you bewildered and terrified, but at the same time eager to see the Second Season, coming-hopefully-in 2013.

No Time Left is a wholly satisfying and rewarding conclusion to one of this year’s best. It makes a grand statement for episodic content. It’s brought the storytelling benefits of a point’n’click adventure to a new audience. Its finale had me shed a tear. The medium of video game has a serious affliction in ending a story arc sensibly that needs to be addressed. Monolith and Bioware take note. But not this time. Telltale has done itself proud.

Don’t mince words: The Walking Dead: The Game is something special. By giving players the option to craft relationships and make choices that fill out the story, The Walking Dead wraps you up in its events and makes you care in a way few video games can. Yes, there are moments where Lee’s animations look jerky and technical issues remind you this is just a game, but the story is what’s driving the action here, and it’s a tale no one should miss.

All of this, and yet the game isn't completely without fault. There are issues with lighting on console, often making things too dark, and there's a problem with slowdown between cutscenes and puzzles throughout. It's not a huge deal here though – being that The Walking Dead is a game where the challenge and skill comes mostly from thinking on your feet, not through controller dexterity. The slowdown doesn't really hinder you. The action sections are really well done, too. The game works on a point-and-click mechanic to solve the puzzles, but also to negotiate some tough meetings with the zombies every now and again. The fact that this mechanic slows even the sharpest, most experienced first-person-shooter player's reflexes right down adds a genuine stress to the encounters, and plays on the typical survival horror trick of making the controls and character carefully cumbersome. It's never frustrating though, only well balanced. The art, too, is wonderfully realised, both making the world a dangerous but curious place, and giving a great deal of life to the characters. Just look at Clementine's expressiveness even without words. It plays right into the hands of its comic book counterpart, and leaves the game anything but lifeless.

And there has to be a second season. The final moments are phenomenally powerful. It would be criminal to spoil any of this stirring and heartwrenching story, but this is a heady combination of artful writing and innate knowledge of the power of videogames to draw players into a character. It achieves things that passive artforms cannot. Jake Rodkin and Sean Vanaman have established themselves as game writers at the height of their powers, and The Walking Dead is unquestionably one of the videogames of the year.

The Walking Dead feels sometimes as creaky and rattling as an average zombie, but at its best moments is based on the comic game a true emotional roller coaster. You really get attached to the characters as you make one after another terrible choices and the consequences shocking experience. The heart and soul of the game are Clementine and Lee together to ensure that anything you do get the right twisted impact. The Walking Dead shows that games (emotional) can tell stories like no other.

The Walking Dead is the year's big positive surprise. It came out of nowhere from a humble developer in the aftermath of a television series that plummeted in quality and proves how much a good story can do for a game. If it's just been a little more involving pure gameplay too - some more puzzles, which requires that you can not play with just one hand for several passages - the game had climbed even higher on the rating scale. Now it lands on a strong eight. I'm already longing for next season. Television series can pull something dead over him, for this is the game version is the better of them.

When I finished the final episode of The Walking Dead, eyes welling up with tears, I started thinking about the possibilities of where Telltale might take the series in Season Two. The series only got better with each subsequent chapter, so I can't wait to see how the studio plans to expand the franchise further in 2013. This might sound totally ridiculous, but as of right now, there isn't a game I'm more excited about. Forget BioShock Infinite or The Last of Us. I want more of The Walking Dead!

The Walking Dead’s success isn’t in creating a Choose Your Own Adventure game with hundreds of possible outcomes and limitless plotlines. Instead, it reflect the reality of life, reminding you that many of the choices you’re given have predetermined outcomes, and some things simply can’t be changed. And yet, this undermining of everything that makes The Walking Dead unique is arguably its greatest triumph. Despite not always being in control, The Walking Dead makes you feel as though you are. Even though you can’t always save someone from death, you can give it your best try, shaping the person you are. And it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth the effort to change what, in all likelihood, can not be changed.
