    The Walking Dead: Michonne

    Options include Subtitles (OFF by default), Subtitle Size, Resolution (800x600 up to 1920x1080), and separate sliders for Master Volume, Music, and Brightness.

    Gameplay is the same as you would expect if you're a Telltale fan... It's an interactive movie where you make decisions that affect how things play out. It seems like there were a lot more QuickTime Events in this installment of the series than I've seen before (haven't played Season 3 yet).  I don't know whether they're easier this time around, or if I've just gotten better at gaming ;)

    I am a huge zombie fan, but I've yet to see TWD TV series - nor have I read the comics - so I don't know if Telltale did Michonne justice or not.  I CAN say that her character is a badass with a compelling story, and that the devs did just as amazing a job with choreography, mannerisms, and facial expressions as in their previous games, and the voice-overs are excellent.

    There are 21 achievements, but they are all obtained by simply playing the game.

    The game took me about four hours to complete (I did not re-play any of my decisions), so it's not very long, but it's also $10 less than a full season of TWD.  One of the antagonists reminded me a lot of a character from Season 2, which threw me off a bit, but overall I'd say that the story was pretty solid, leaving me teary-eyed at one point.  It kept me interested throughout, and I only took one short break during my play-through.

    What can I say except that I loved it?  Definitely recommended! Two thumbs up

    If this is your first dip into the game version of The Walking Dead, you can play without fear - Michonne contains no spoilers for Seasons 1 or 2 (and I'm guessing not for Season 3, either).
