Wolf Among Us Episode 3: A Crooked Mile Review
The Wolf Among Us Episode 3 is another great episode. Telltale continues to amaze gamers with the story and the action. The question is, although the Crooked Mile is shorter, will gamers have enough to keep them busy until Episode 4?
I would love to spoil the story with lots of details, but I’ll keep them to a minimum. If you have played the 2nd episode, things are taking an interesting turn, but once again things are not as clear as they should be. Crane may be in the spotlight, but I keep thinking Bluebeard has something else going on, a hidden agenda. There is continued awkward chemistry between Snow and Bigby, which leaves players wondering, is something going to happen? Can Bigby be the Hero? Or is he the guy who is just there to do the job, no matter what the cost is to himself or others? The title of this episode fits this part of the game perfectly.
I do have to say there are a few key choices in this episode, a few of which may impact what achievements and trophies gamers can get. Most of them revolve around supporting one side or the other and what places to go to first. There are also critical decisions with action heavy consequences. Out of the three episodes, I felt like this one had the most action. Bigby is taking on shotgun wielding thugs and finally gamers get to see the wolf emerge. His rage only grows and it reminds me of Wolverine. The episode moved along quickly and I think I finished it in under two hours. I am eager to play through it again and try a few other choices.
Do you need to play the other episodes first? I would say yes. Although there is a few minute recap in the beginning, this only hits the high points. If gamers haven’t picked this up, I highly recommend they do so. Amazon has it on sale. While you are shopping around, you might as well check out the The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2, Sam and Max, or Back to the Future
