The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 Review
Just a few months ago gamers were wowed with The Wolf Among Us Episode 1. A few questions were left unanswered but gamers were left hungering for more. Episode 2 of the Wolf Among Us has the title of Smoke and Mirrors. This sums up the story pretty well. The Gamer’s Lounge has taken the time to play the 2nd episode and is wondering what is Telltale going to do next to tease gamers.
Its a must play for gamers who enjoyed the first episode. The first episode shows gamers the conspiracy which surrounds Bigsby. By the end of episode 1 gamers are left wondering is one of the main characters dead? Things are always what they seem, there is lots of smoke in this episode. People and things don’t always seem what they are at first. There are a few tense moments where I was scratching my head wondering why Telltale took it in that direction.
That sounds pretty vague but I wanted to try to keep it spoiler free. There are a few key events that happen in this episode. There is less action and more story this time around. There are a few instances where Bigby gets to play bad cop, good cop in order to get the information gamers need. The Woodsman shows up again but his role in this episode is diminished. Gamers will see more of Beauty and the Beast as well as Crane. Bluebeard also shows up and from what gamers learn about him he’s an interesting character who may play a bigger role. By the end a few mysteries had been solved but new ones had shown up.
Final thoughts, while this episode is informative and helps move the story along, I think gamers can agree it needed more action. Episode 2 of the Walking Dead had a lot of action and there were some pretty important events which helped shape the story. It was the first time in Walking Dead where I questioned my choices. But these are two different games and The Wolf Among Us is still shaping up to be a great series. Episode 2 just leaves gamers with wanting more and the rest of the episodes cannot come soon enough. If you haven’t picked up the game yet, Amazon has individual episodes for $5 and the season pass for $25.
