Game Review: The Wolf Among Us

About:

The Wolf Among Us is an episodic interactive fantasy mystery graphic adventure video game based on Bill Willingham’s Fables comic book series. It is developed by Telltale Games. It is canon with the comic book universe and is set as a prequel to the comic book.

The Wolf Among Us is set in the year 1986, nearly twenty years before the events of Fables. For years, many of the magical lands described in myth, legend, and folklore (known as The Homelands) have been occupied by an enigmatic tyrant known as the Adversary. To escape the Adversary’s totalitarian regime, many of The Homelands inhabitants fled to colonial America, and created an enclave known as Fabletown, now located in modern-day Manhattan. To mask their presence from the native humans, all non-human fables have to purchase an enchantment known as a “glamour” which allows them to appear human, or be relocated to a rural community known as “The Farm”.

Review:

The wolf among us is one of the most interesting Telltale games I’ve came across. Its more engaging than the other game and choices have larger impact. I really liked the build up of the story and how mysterious they made it. It is also more engaging than the other game and a bit fast based. Not to mention its the hardest telltale game to platinum.

What I didn’t like about the game is the fact that you cant be good… you have to be the big bad wolf. Also the choices are a bit confusing at times. They are either too alike or too different.

I loved how the game ended and the different endings it had and the fact that your choices did make a bit of an impact on the plot. If you did play the game let me know if you liked it or disliked it.

Overall Rate: 4/5
