    Good start to a good premise, but it will really have to step it up if it wants to step out of WD's shadow

    I'm happy and excited in my pants that Telltale decided to take the thing they just mastered and really hammer it home as their own. They are expanding the point n click, choices n consequences aspect that they basical... Read Full Review

    I'd like to review the game, but I've been fighting off respawning soldiers for 12 straight hours.

    I'm not using a pirated version or anything. I paid for the game so it's up-to-date in patches, and yet this game that's been out for a year is still not fixed. If you start a fight in certain locations, soldier reinf... Read Full Review

    You can't really judge Round 3 for PS2 because it wasn't made for PS2, it was made for XBox360 and PS2 couldn't keep up. All the new facial features and realistic punch effects are AWAL in the PS2 versions, and we're le... Read Full Review
