The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 Being a Telltale game, it's not at all hard to guess how it plays. You navigate Lee around the screen as you're able to interact with any number of objects - some useful, others not so much - and people. There's the odd puzzle, but they're usually simple to navigate through and offer no real challenge. The real difficulty comes with the choices and The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 morality system Telltale has put in place. At certain times in proceedings, Lee is dealt a really shitty hand.
Early on, the undead make a raid on an undermanned farm, forcing themselves onto two of the group. In a pinch, Lee must choose who he helps and, as a result, who he effectively dooms. A very effective ticking clock further places stress on the situation as you urgently soul-search for the answer. It's gripping stuff to suddenly find Lee in the The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 middle of a crisis, being looked to for an answer. And being The Walking Dead, the shit you're knee-deep in only tends to get thicker as you trudge on.
Just like these tense decision-driven cinematics, the infrequent action sequences are handled, as expected, through quick-time events. Don't let the thought get you down, as unlike many games to come before, they're handled pretty darn well. In lieu of a simplistic button-mashing exercise, you're forced to navigate your thumbstick in the general direction of the on-screen target before instigating the button-press. Much like the aforementioned timeouts, it adds a certain tension having to fumble around in the heat of The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 it all. In the scenes following your car accident in the early goings, Lee finds himself patting around on the ground for a loose shotgun shell as he, in a shaken state, tries to avoid being a meal for the walker dragging itself toward him on its belly. It's a horrific recipe for sweaty, nervous palms.
Being inspired by Kirkman's comics, Telltale has gone with a very fitting cel-shading overcoat. Though it's not all bright colours, rainbows and unicorns with this comic-book like aesthetic, things can get grizzly in a hurry. Clementine's rescue of Lee sees her gifting him with a claw-hammer which he doesn't hesitate in using on the walker that The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 thinks his brains are on the lunch menu. What follows is one of the most out-of-nowhere, gruesome kill scenes I've seen in sometime. My jaw was on the floor, you guys, not unlike countless pieces of zombie cranium. M
