Telltale games is credited with trying to single-handedly pull the point and click adventure genre back into the limelight, and The Walking Dead is arguably its crowning achievement to date.

The game is based on the cult-favourite comic The Walking Dead - which has also been made into a hit TV show - and drops you into the aftermath of a zombie uprising.

What's important though is that the story is constantly surprising. You find yourself second guessing characters and taking sides. You make decisions that might come back and bite you on the behind like a zombie chasing you up a ladder. Nothing is clear cut, just like both the TV Show and comics that brought the series its fame.

Some have described this game as a point and click adventure and that's not too far from the truth. Even in the console versions there is a curser on screen during game time. However, it never falls into the same old traps we're used to when playing point and click games. It feels more like Heavy Rain than Broken Sword. There's a lot of time spent being a viewer rather than a player but it never gets dull. There are no perplexing puzzles to crack, there's no aimless wandering. It's incredibly well directed and will keep you playing through long sessions.

The Definitive Edition brings together all four seasons of this classic series, making it a bona fide epic and a real feast for anyone who hasn't already dived in.
