worth getting? I saw it won a lot of awards at some recent video game awards, although that might have been because the tv show is hugely popular in America.

Huge fan of the TV show played them demo of the game I liked it, but waiting for monthly instalments put me off and I said I would pick up when they are all on special, or on a retail disc. There is a huge thread on the game already although it may contain spoilers, so Im avoiding. Is it getting a disc release?

It's *brilliant*. Its wins at the Spike VGAs were well deserved.

Top notch story and voice acting, and emotionally draining.

If it wasn't for ME3 it would be my game of the year.

I've played the first ep. Somewhat interesting but the VA is a bit ropey in parts and I don't have an overwhelming urge to follow up with the rest.

Id rather wait for disc to be honest, at least there is some resale value with that.

Just got the game on disc today and playing the 1st episode loving it so far. It's less of a game and more of an interactive movie.

Do your choices ingame really have an effect on the story? When you see the prompts that somebody will remember what you said or did.

Your choices don't have much effect on the eventual resolutions, but they do have an large effect on the way you reach those resolutions, if you see what i mean.

Its a fantastic game though, with stellar voice acting and a great plot so try your best to avoid any spoilers. (i've tried to be very vague above)

I've never watched the Walking Dead. Am I at a disadvantage (or maybe even an advantage?) if I wish to play this game?

The game takes place in the Comic Book Universe (and is stylised to match that) as fans know, the Comic Book Universe is very different to the TV version.

So really, ....I'd say advantage, because I would expect TV only fans to be questioning quite a lot of stuff mentioned in the game, which didn't happen in the TV version but DID happen in the Comics.

I've never watched the TV show either and I enjoyed the game just as much, best game I've played this year.

As the poster above said, it's closer to the comic books than the TV show.

You should definitely watch the TV Drama, it's easily the best thing on TV. Series 3 has been epic.

The game is better than the TV show (although the show has improved dramatically in the 3rd season)

I think the game has now won 15+ game of the year awards.

It's a fab game, and yeah hearing the spoilers would have er 'spoilt' it for you lol, but I reckon it's still worth playing.

A couple of times it had me in tears and reading about it on some forum won't allow you to get involved with the characters that playing the game does. Plus, for example, there's a part where you can pick which character lives or dies.

Anyway, I love the game and am a fan of the series. Managed to get my mam watching the first series and seems she likes it, but since we're at the 3rd episode she hasn't seen anyone get eaten lol.

I just finished the game today. It really is an amazing game even if you have read some spoilers it's worth playing for the story anyway.

It is very enjoyable though I've actually not finished it yet, up to the end of Chapter 4 but I am puzzled at the GOTY awards this game has recieved.
