Damn spellcheck... Fixed now so I will elaborate.

It's 1 of those choose your own adventure type games where there are like 3 text options there and you get to pick 1 to proceed... Then you wait for endless cutscenes to proceed again and coose 1of 3 options and wait for cutsces again, repeat, repeat. Really lame assed game playing off the popularity of the series. If you like to watch cutscenes and not actually play, then it's a good game, lol. It does lend it self towards tablets pretty well since there's not much interfacing it's mostly watching cutscenes

I wouldn't call interactive game where the plot depends on your decisions a boring and lame one. Sometimes it requires a quick decision giving you just two seconds to decide what to do when a walker suddenly attacks or whatever. I've been through some adrenaline moments in this game and a few were quite scary. Not Dead Space or Amnesia level of fright but very good for a small TV series based game. Some moments were quite painful and hard to play through, especially in the last episode when you can "save" a girl from a massive walker assault only by shooting her in the head. I made a poor choice by letting her live two minutes more by lowering my rifle and getting up on the truck and escaping into pharmacy, and then after listening to her agony screams and walkers gurgling while devouring her alive I was really hating game sound designers for making it too natural and too life like. So I can't say this game is anywhere near slow and boring, it's very opposite from boring, although it is slow to pick up in the beginning, I agree. But it grows on you just like Amnesia, which was also slow in the beginning. Heck, even Dead Space had quite lengthy intro, it wasn't like you were hacking and slashing necros the moment you start the game. Doom 3 also had lengthy intro, and many other horror/survival games too. You need a proper atmosphere, a proper build up to suck you in slowly. Without it the game does indeed gets boring fast.

So the cutscenes get better and even gripping? Ok, but you still aren't playing, you are mostly watching. If you are entertained, then cool, but you arent gaming. It's more like interactive storytime.

I'm a huge proponent of gameplay mechanics over cutscenes and story and I'm not a huge adventure game guy.

The Walking Dead beats all those trends, it is amazing. Episode 1 is probably the weakest of the bunch, I suggest playing through episode 2 to make a decision. Episode 4 and 5 are absolute gut punches, excruciating and so good.

It is easily one of the top 5 games I played last year and it landed on a ton of other top ten lists. Again, absolutely amazing.
