Telltale Games returns with a game of choices and consequences, but this time out those hard decisions are embedded in the completely fantastic world of Fables, not the relative social realism of a zombie apocalypse. The question is does this formula work with new material?
The Wolf Among Us is a bit more action oriented than Telltale’s version of The Walking Dead. It is at once made familiar through its use of fairy tale and folklore and less familiar due to its heavy reliance on a media property with a complex background and back story that is less familiar to the casual player new to the game’s source material.
This week we dive in with both feet to see what we make of the first major episodic game since Telltale delivered what may have been the best game of last year.
