Note: While the game was released between April to November of 2012 in 5 instalments on the PC, Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network, the final retail version on disc is only now coming out. This review reflects this fact and is a review of said version.
The story is by far more compelling than any other Walking Dead media form (with the exception of the original comic series). You play as former university professor and convicted murderer Lee Everett, as he seeks redemption from his past crimes in the form of Clementine, a young girl he protects in the ongoing zombie apocalypse, mainly set in Georgia. Some familiar faces make cameo appearances if you’re familiar with the comics and the TV show, but they don’t lend much to the overall story.
