Does Telltale Game's new episode deliver? Find out in our review!
The original five episodes of the Walking Dead Season One are mind blowing. The episodes are able to evoke the sprit of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series while showcasing Telltale Games’ unique style. The story of Season 1 centers on Lee Everett and Clementine and is emotional, heartfelt, and terrifying. Every agonizing choice that is made carries weight and leaves the player with serious emotional fatigue. The best part was that your choices mattered and characters remembered your decisions. These choices were reflected in later episodes and could lead to someone losing their life. Now, Telltale Games is back with The Walking Dead: 400 Days. This new episode serves as a bridge between Season 1 and Season 2, which launches this Fall. Is 400 Days alive with promise or is it just another rotting corpse? Find out in our review!
Red's Diner appears in more than one story.
The Walking Dead: 400 Days serves as a bridge between Season 1 and Season 2. None of the original characters appear. Instead, you play as five new characters through five stories that slightly intertwine during the episode. The characters are Vince (a man convicted of murder), Wyatt (a stoner attempting to escape his aggressor), Shel (a woman trying to protect her sister), Bonnie (a recovering drug addict), and Russell (a teen searching for his family). The stories can be played in any order, which creates unique moments when they intertwine. The stories are interesting and unique. Each story provides a new and different perspective on the Walkers and each character is attempting to survive in a different way. The only problem is, the stories lack the emotion and impact of Season 1.
