Anyone download and play this yet? I bought the first episode and played through it yesterday. I thought it was really good. It reminded me of one of those choose your own adventure novels. It had some intense moments and a little bit of puzzle solving.

It only lasted a couple of hours, but for $5 it was definitely worth it. The teaser for episode 2 left me wanting more for sure.

Your thoughts?

I'm waiting to see if the iPad3 version is good. If not then I'll probably grab the 360 version.

It looks to me that it would be well suited to any touch device. It's not an fps and all of the actions could be done by touching the screen much easier than with a controller.

i'd say as long as it runs smoothly it should be great.

I played on the PC, but I thought this was really good.

I was worried after the very disappointing "Jurassic Park" but this was done nearly perfectly I think.

I am in love with the show on AMC, still not having checked out the graphic novels, and was amped to hear about a game in the works for The Walking Dead universe. Although it was sprung upon me in the Xbox Dashboard out of the blue, it still hit home with my love for art, zombies, and video games; albeit an episodic DLC title. The cinematography is just as top notch as the shows. The graphics are par if not slightly above, simply because of the artistic styling. The music matches the mood and setting, scream by scream. The gameplay feels a little lacking in the action department, but the thrill of writing your own television show paired with the frantic aiming, quick button presses, and sleuth-like survival skills feel all to at home here. My only complaint is some minor framerate issues that blotch the surface of this otherwise splendid title.

And for $5?! You gotta be crazy to not pick this up if you love comics, zombies, video games, the show, artsy XBLA titles, etc.

Downloaded it. Pretty fun so far, well worth the 400 points!

Played through it twice so far, going to go through one more time, just to check out how decisions / dialogue choices, etc... impact the story. For $5, this one can't be beat.

I'm planning on going back through the episodes after they have all been released and I've finished all of them. I want my story to be "my story". Then I'll see what other options there were.

Anyone buy the 5 Episode bundle yet? You save $5 compared to buying singles.

It's on the PSN Network for $19.99. I thought it would be the same on the Xbox, sorry for the confusion.

Microsoft isn't allowing the bundle. Have to buy them individually.

If anyone cares, Episode 2 was released yesterday. I downloaded last night but haven't played it yet.

Why would anyone want to play this on a 7" screen without surround sound.

I still might choose 360 or PC but I thought it might be pretty awesome on the 2048x1536 screen. I'm ok with stereo audio on nice headphones. Once reviews are out I'll go with the best version.
