The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 - Faith
Top Critic Average
Developer: Telltale Games
Genre: Interactive Story
The first episode, "Faith" plants many seeds that we expect to see return in later installments, but so far, the new episodic series is off to an impressive start. Offering an experience that new Telltale fans are sure to eat up, an adaptation of "Fables" that the comic's fans will approve of, and a story sure to scratch the itch of mystery fans, The Wolf Among Us has already put The Walking Dead in good company.
Faith, as this episode is called is appropriately named, is worth the investment. The studio needs you to download this episode on nothing but the faith that this series will be just as amazing as it's last. And we hope you do believe in Telltale because this is one series you don't want to miss out on.
Unfamiliar with the original comic book series, I was initially worried I would be lost when it came to the game, even if it is considered a prequel. Keeping me guessing throughout, the unpredictable nature of the narrative had me on the edge of my seat. If I have learned anything from playing through Faith, nothing is what is seems.
