‘The Walking Dead’ video game

A story-based adventure that plays like you’re watching a whole other season of the TV series

It’s been on the market for a while now, but to me it’s a new discovery - The Walking Dead video game.  With the new season of the television series just arrived I decided I had to try this out and see what the hype was.  Turns out I was not disappointed, as this $25 game runs pretty much just like a season of the series, except you get to make the decisions on how the story pans out.

 

Released in late April, there are eventually going to be five chapters to the game.  The $25 covers them all, however, so you don’t have to worry about paying more for additional content.  They were supposed to be released one every month, or thereabouts, but considering that the fourth installment just finally came out a few weeks ago, it’s looking more like an episode every few months.  I’m guessing the last one should be here late November or at least sometime before Christmas.
