+a telltale game
+delivers and surpasses expectations beyond TWD
+longer length per Episode
+superb voice-acting
+dark, gritty, mature theme mixed with your favorite fantasy characters
+enhanced 'gameplay'
+noticeable improvement of texture/graphics quality from the TWD
+great story that picks up immediately
-still best with a gamepad (only applies for those who prefer kb&m)
-have to wait longer for more episodes

personal comments:
Hi PCH. I just want to say that after TWD I didn't really care to much for another Telltale game aside from the upcoming TWD Season 2. I just beat Castlevania SOTN & on a whim I purchased this game because, well, why not? Telltale has been delivering even before TWD. They can have my money. I knew minimal info concerning the game; other than fantasy/fable characters were going to be in it, i was completely clueless.

I just finished episode 1 and let me tell you something; WOW. Story-wise, im completely hooked and this is coming into it with a complete 'meh' attitude. The characters so far have been pretty memorable. Voice acting is superb. The current episode lasted at least over an hour and a half longer than TWD episode 1. The Walking Dead set a standard, and to my surprise, this exceeds it.

My only real complaint is that the next 4 episodes wont be released soon enough. It's just that good..

VERDICT: BUY IT. NAO.

Will wait until its completed then... Did the same with The Walking Dead. Does look interesting but I would much rather have access to the whole story arch in one go.

Not really liking A Wolf Among Us...I normally like this kind of stuff too, the fantasy setting. Way more cutscenes than TWD, much less control.

I'd rather wait for all episodes to come out and get it on sale than pay full price now and still have to wait for all the content.

I love modernized fairy tales or fairy tale themes and I have no problems playing a good visual novel assuming the game knows how to tell a good story (I'm looking at you, Cherry Tree High Comedy Club, which I recently tried playing and it doesn't have enough gameplay to be a good game yet it doesn't have enough story to be a good VN so it ends up just being a sub-par stat boosting game with no real redeeming qualities). I watched TotalBiscuit's WTF, though, and this looks pretty good. I'll grab it when more eps are released.

Definitely wait, cuz right now it's so short it's not even worth it.

Not worth buying.

You don't get a deal for buying it before it's done and then you have to wait on top of it.

Might was well wait until they finish it. Might even get a sale.

Never bothered with TWD because, you know, f***ing sick of zombies. Kinda interested in this since I can finally see what all the hype is all about with Telltale. But it looks like I'll be waiting for all of the releases to come out first.
