Nah, it's a pretty great game.

I'd have to disagree, due to the bugs, cliched story, and the disappointment when you discover that no matter what choices you make, basically the same outcome occurs for all major events.

Just like Heavy Rain, I only did 1 Playthrough. Not the best solution but it makes me appreciate the game more.

Didn't really run into bugs, just some slowdown.

I've never gotten this one. I've watched a few other people play the game, and though there aren't any radical differences since such things would kinda' work against the framework of the game's story, there were enough differences between each game that I didn't feel ripped off.

Not saying I could have a completely different experience than my first, but if I were to pick it up and start a new game, a lot of things would be different.

And cliche story isn't really a valid complaint. It's all in the execution, and TWD's was great. Just as Mass Effect is cliche as hell, but it's never bothered me because I absolutely love Bioware's execution. Well.. For the most part, lol.

My only complaint is that choices you make don't have an effect on how characters speak to you at all later down the road. I caught this on two instances. Even if you've always sided with Kenny, he'll still bring up how you've never been there for him. In another case, even if you've never told Lilly about your past in Episode 3, she still references your past right after the moment she kills Carly.

Simply put, the game promises that your choices "shape the story". When in reality, it'd be more accurate to say that your choices shape the dialogue, and the story is set in stone.

People are all angry that BioWare didn't fulfill their promise of not having an "A, B, or C ending" for Mass Effect 3, but TWD straight up lies to you at the beginning of every episode, but everyone's cool with that.
