I got it for my iphone and it was bloody brilliant considering i hate controls usually on the iphone but this game worked perfectly.

Are the graphics Better on the PS3? Cause if it gets a disc release here then i might get it for the ps3.
They say the iPhone conversion was excellent and retains everything from the console versions (hence graphics are practically identical). Even between the different console versions and the PC one they say there is very little difference in visuals and performance, PC one may be slightly better through supporting higher resolutions but all the reviews seem to indicate there is nothing in it. Also I think the controls work particularly well with a gamepad as it makes aiming shots and attacks just challenging enough where as a mouse would make them too easy IMHO.

I got it for the 360, I got the first episode for free and 2-5 for 200 msp each, real bargain for what is a truly amazing game. I have always loved adventure games and wished I could have more control over the story and better connections with characters, that this game provides. Played through two separate games from start to finish but then went back using the (clever) rewind feature to try out even more possibilities and considering even having a third play through to see what other ways I can influence the story in the choices I make and by helping different characters.

This game is amazing, I can't remember the last time I actually got so emotionally involved with a game and it's characters. I'm in mourning that I've finished the game! Is it worth a 2nd play through? I just thought with know the outcome it wouldn't be as good.

I finished episode 5 over the weekend, cant recommend this game enough. Totally gripping & very immersive - I actually felt guilty about some of the decisions I made, and I cant say I remember a video game ever making me feel guilty before

Loved every second of it. Brought the PS3 downstairs to play it just so the parents could watch it as they were dying to find out what happened to Clem.

Only game to ever captivate the parents.

I loved playing it, until I got the glitch where it no longer recognises your save. I played through the first four and part of five as well, not going to bother starting again to make the same choices, and i'm not going to finish it with my choices gone.

My OH has no interest in gaming whatsoever yet he sat and watched me play the whole series, in fact he was responsible for some of my more ill advised decsions!

My wife wanted me to play it so she could find out what happens next too. I had never watched the TV series but once I completed the game, I bought series one on bluray, watches it all in a day & then sold it again for 2 more than I bought it for. Got series 2 yesterday & watched 6 episodes already

Really looking forward to the next episodes/series but I might wait until they're all available first so I can keep playing through rather than waiting to find out what happens after each one

It is a fantastic game and one of the few games my mrs is interested in (I haven't finished it yet as I have far too many games waiting to be played but will deff get around to it). Lets hope this time, xbox360 owners get some kind of season pass (like the Ps3 owners did) perhaps 1600ms points for all 5 new episodes or something.

Same here! We took turns with the controller, she loved it. We are both gutted we've finished it now!

I enjoyed the TV series, so maybe I'll have to check out the game sometime.

Just finished Episode 2. I knew there was something off about those dairy farm folk, but damn I didn't expect that! Can't believe I'm halfway through it now, I just want it to keep going. After being Larry's best mate in Episode 1 I've made some bad choices in this episode and now we're not seeing eye to eye. Sadly I accidentally stumbled across some spoilers for some stuff which happens in episodes 3 and 4, but oh well. Am sure I'll still enjoy playing through it.

It's one of the best games released last year, and IMO is better than the TV series.
