Between the arcade version and the retail version?
Also is the game plays like heavy rain or is it more like an action zombie game?

I don't think anything is different apart from it will be on disc. I hope it will run a bit better, although that problem doesn't ruin it in the arcade version. And it is closer to Heavy Rain style and an action zombie game.

By the way I meant that it is closer to Heavy Rain style THAN an action zombie game.

^ What he said. It's more styled like an interactive version of the show, 90% point and click, and 10% QTE. You also discern who survives by what actions you choose/conversation choices.

Activision is working on the action oriented FPS Walking Dead title.

Yeah and the Telltale game is set in the comic universe (it has the comics graphic style as well) but the Activision game is set in the TV show universe.

dont get it if you're expecting a 'game'. It's an interactive experience

Yeah, it feels more like an animated "CHOSE YOUR ADVENTURE" book than an actual game.

That being said, I've enjoyed the first 2 episodes, and plan on getting the rest when my gaming schedule clears up a bit.
