As a fan of the Walking Dead series, I, quite frankly, can’t wait for the next episode to come out. Thankfully, Telltale games were generous enough to create this fantastic introduction/epilouge thing that ties things together from the previous season as well as introduce new characters with new personalities ambitions for survival for the new season. There are five different people who you play as: Vince, Wyatt, Russell, Bonnie, and Shel (check out the wiki for further info). Of course, I have nothing to say but good things because, well, it’s Telltale games and the Walking Dead. My only complaint: the combat. I hate shooting in this game because you cannot invert the y-axis. and it doesn’t give you enough time to react. But, hey, I do suppose it’s uber realistic.
My favorite characters were.. well, I like them all. But specifically, I liked Bonnie, Wyatt, and Vince. Bonnie is an apparent drug addict of some sort who was found by Leland. I don’t want to reveal too much, but Bonnie has the hots for Leland, and that’s why I like her character. Leland has been there for her ever since he found her, and has helped her throughout her forced “detox” since, well, it’s the zombie apocalypse. Oh yeah, he’s an older man.
Vince is cool. He was convicted of murder in Macon (ring any bells?). Him and a couple of other guys end up getting trapped in the transport bus with zombies while the guards bailed on him. You have to make a choice for your survival, which I will not spoil. Let’s just say it’s a pretty hard one.
Lastly, Wyatt is awesome. He seems like a guy I’d hang out with. He’s looks kind of stoner-ish, but cool nonetheless. He has to leave his friend behind to escape people who are coming after them (again, not wanting to be too specific).
All in all, it is well worth the money to get this prologue to the next season and epilogue to the previous season. As always, amazing character development and amazing story. It took me about an hour to beat with interruptions from dogs and husband. This makes me even more impatient and excited for the next season to come out!
