Bigby Wolf… Big Bee Wolf… Big B. Wolf… BIG BAD WOLF! Aaahhh… Clever girl.
You guys watch the Walking Dead: Season 2 Reveal Trailer yet? I’m pretty pumped. Literally got Goosebumps watching that. But. That. Is. Another. Story.
Not really though, I’m reviewing Wolf Among Us. It’s made by Telltale and it’s totally radical.
I got a cough.
You play as Bigby Wolf. I already addressed the pun so you can just cool your beans. Bigby is the sheriff of Fabletown, a place where Fairy-tale characters can live in peace in the modern world. (Don’t laugh, it works. Okay?) The game opens up with Bigby answering a call placed by Mr. Toad. He’s literally a toad, don’t ask, okay? The game works. Mr. Toad tells Bigby that The Woodsman is upstairs cuttin’ a rug. Or smacking around a hooker. Either or. Bigby confronts the Woodsman and there’s a totally awesome fight. If the fight doesn’t hook you then I don’t even want to talk to you anymore. You can just leave. Get out of here. I don’t even want you to continue reading this review if you don’t think the opening scene is the third coolest thing. After beans, hot dogs and the entirety of the late eighties and early nineties. After their initial fight, they fall out a second story window and go on with their days. The actual story picks up after that, but I won’t tell you what it is because it’s awesome and filled with twists and turns.
This game’s pretty freaking cool. It looks way better than Walking Dead. That’s not just a graphics thing, the colours are much more vibrant and character animations are smoother. Also the concept is cooler. Fairy-tale characters living in New York, some of which can turn into monsters at will, it’s pretty radical. Probably the third most radical. After surfer bros, skaters and the entirety of the late eighties and early nineties.
Is it better than Walking Dead? Well, it’s only the first episode and both left me with the same sort of feeling, but it’s still too early to tell.
I have high hopes. I already bought the season pass… I’m highly hoping that wasn’t a waste of my money. I shouldn’t be worrying.
On a scale from A to Big B Wolf; the Wolf Among Us gets a three foot toad… That’s clever.
