Gameplay

The Walking Dead Michonne miniseries is a point and click game. There are many choices you have to make during the game, choices which will impact the game dramatically. There are quick time events that are seamless integrated into the game. There are times were you are in control of Michonne and you have to use certain items to get through certain obstacles or achieve certain objectives.

Graphics

Telltale’s games are not known for their realistic graphics and that is not a bad thing. The character models and environment are animated in a 3 dimensional fashion. If you have played any of the previous Walking Dead games you will notice how similar the characters models are with exceptions of a few upgrades look. The world created is beautiful  and vibrant and the colors really pop, and the game uses lighting to shade certain aspects of the environment or characters models.

Audio

The audio is crystal clear through the game, you shouldn’t have a problem interpreting voices from sound effects. Speaking of which the voice acting and sound effects in this game is incredible. I feel like with each character you can tell what they are feeling just by the sound of their voice. I found that the sounds effects match what it was trying to replicate. When Michonne was killing walkers it sounded like Michonne killing walkers on the television show. It all sounded realistic.

My conclusion

After I was done playing this game I was happy, sad, and thrilled all at the same time. I loved the story, I learned more about more about her past and where she was after the new beginning. I love the graphics. The animations did what it needed to do to tell the story and then some. The voice acting was perfect and so were sound effects. The main thing I really loved is that this game connects to the comics. I really don’t have any thing to complain about. To me, this game is amazing.
