Well, instead of waiting for reviews for the game, or word of mouth, or whatever else, I didn't hesitate at all.
Firstly because it's by the same guys that work for Telltale that did the Telltale 'Walking Dead' episodic game last year.
Secondly, it's a damn good price at only £3.99, even if I did finish it in about 2 and a half hours, and three, I like horror.
No, no, scratch that, I LOVE horror......But this is fantasy surely?
Yeah, I guess it is. But you play as a Werewolf who was once the Big Bad Wolf you heard about in the three pigs tale and the one about the drunk Woodsman and Red Riding Hood. So there's a hint of horror in there.
And boy I'm glad I didn't hesitate.
I doubt it will do as well as 'The Walking Dead' as obviously that thing is bloody huge, comic, TV and game wise. (Except that terrible shooter focusing on Merle and Daryl).
But I can guarantee it will do well.
Everything to it makes it a great game, the actors, the animations, the twists and turns and the overall story in general.
To be honest the only thing that I didn't like was the 2 - 2 and half hour play time. But that's only because by the end I just wanted to play the game more I was enjoying it that much.
Oh and of course the glitches, the damn things.
Every Telltale game has them. Just simple things like characters lagging or speech jerking, but it didn't take anything away from the game at all.
Other than the obvious comparisons (Telltale, Episodic, length, etc), it can't really be compared to 'The Walking Dead' as the stories are completely different.
So you can't really say it adds anything new.
It does repeat the same style of storytelling though, giving you choices along the way, and there are a HELL OF A LOT!
Many fairy tale creatures have moved into an area of Manhattan known as "Fabletown". The sheriff, Bigby Wolf, once the infamous "Big Bad Wolf," becomes swept into a case involving the gruesome murder of a Fable. With this death in Fabletown, along with his history of violence and brutality, Bigby finds his role as protector and sheriff threatened.
Sometimes difficult, most of the time funny (actual laugh out loud funny), but always serious, this is one game I'm looking forward to playing every month a new episode comes around.
And I say every month loosely. We all know what happened with 'The Walking Dead', so hopefully Telltale can sort this out easier.
In all, I have to give this new beauty of a game,
It could do with some polishing, but it's very promising and the faith I have that I mentioned earlier?
Faith it will stay continuously good.
