Top Critic Average
The Wolf Among Us Episode 5: Cry Wolf is a fantastic finale, and some of the best work Telltale has ever done.
The finale resolves lingering questions while giving you more to ponder
Cry Wolf wraps The Wolf Among Us on a high note
Cry Wolf brings The Wolf Among Us to an uneven conclusion, but still packs the occasional emotional punch.
I don't want more Wolf Among Us -- I need more. It delivers a tone unlike anything Telltale has given us before, and really shows us how they've matured as a studio. The series has also influenced me to read Fables, the source material for Bigby's adventure, just so I can pass the time and hold out hope for a season two. If you're listening, Telltale, find a way.
Even so, "Cry Wolf" is the end to a story worth experiencing. While not every episode has lived up to its potential, the season as a whole has left us with a world that we're hesitant to leave behind. As the first project after Telltale's The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us has been subject to plenty of comparisons and expectations. Yet it stands on its own as one of the finest things the studio has done to date.
Cry Wolf may not have been as strong as some of the episodes before it, but it remains an appropriate capstone to an excellent series that once again proves that Telltale is one of the most interesting companies in the video game market today. I can't wait to see what they do with Game of Thrones.
The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - Cry Wolf wraps up the loose ends of the season and truly goes out on top with high-paced action and a satisfying conclusion.
Telltale's greatest accomplishment is delivering a worthwhile entry into the Fables cannon, keeping true to the ideals without taking any liberties whatsoever. Even though many fans will already know how the characters end up, The Wolf Among Us manages to be gripping from start to finish – there's just no real weak point, and Cry Wolf is a fittingly great ending to a fantastic series.
The Walking Dead showed that mainstream audiences had long overlooked what classic adventure games had to offer; The Wolf Among Us proves that the best from Telltale is yet to come.
