The Wolf Among Us is essential at £7.99 on PS4

The Wolf Among Us is amongst Telltale's finest in their long history of interactive drama titles. This £7.99 PSN offer is the way to go as the physical version is about £15.

The story features a cast of fairy tale characters who are struggling to get by in a dark, 80s New York setting. Think a grimy noir version of Once Upon a Time with a murder investigation. Despite those trademark Telltale technical glitches, The Wolf Among Us is an essential purchase and exceeds the studios’ previous efforts in gameplay, visuals and voice acting. The impact of choices you make in interrogations, conversations and crime scene investigations will keep you hooked right until the end.

The Wolf Among Us only £13.99 on both Playstation and Xbox consoles

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 grabs us by the throat, shakes us out and leaves us begging for more. A superb detective story with shocking twists, complex characters and meaningful choices galore, brought to life in Willingham's daring and imaginative Fables setting. Though we can't get the full measure of the series until we can experience it in its entirety, we suspect that this could be the start of something truly magnificent.The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 Review | Shrek For The Drive Generation

It's not often you see a deal across four consoles at the same price. Happy days for all concerned.

Telltale Games Collection only £28 on PS4

You really should have most of these by now, but if you're missing a few, this bundle may actually save you some money. The collection includes season passes for Walking Dead 1 & 2, The Wolf Among Us, Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands for just £28 if you have PlayStation +.

Half of the episodes for GoT and Borderlands are yet to release, but you'll get them at no additional cost with this bundle as you're getting the full season pass for each series. Oddly, Walking Dead: 400 Days isn't included. But in all honesty the between seasons episode isn't up to the same standards as the full seasons. Still, a great value deal overall.

Thanks to FantasyDeals.

Remember to use voucher code SPEND10 for the extra saving! I reviewed every episode of The Wolf Among Us in spoiler-free fashion, but rest assured that this compelling yarn blends The Walking Dead's storytelling tricks with grim fairy stories and a little Law & Order-style procedural.

However, I'd urge you to not complete it in one binge, because it's designed to be consumed as an episodic series with time to discuss, debate and absorb all of the cliffhangers. My advice would be to play one episode a day, think about it at work, then get home and play it some more. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - Cry Wolf Review | Leader Of The Pack

Platforms: PCPSNXBLA

Developer: Telltale Games

Decisions, decisions. We've made plenty of them during the last four episodes of The Wolf Among Us, some big, some small, some tough and others seemingly simple, but it's finally time to find out whether any of them really mattered in the long run. Everything rests on whether Episode 5: Cry Wolf can tie up the series in a satisfying and bittersweet fashion, while atoning for the stodgy pacing of the last chapter.

Put simply: it does. Not only is Cry Wolf an emphatic end to Telltale's first Fables collaboration, a stylish, menacing, comprehensive and deeply rewarding experience from pacey start to shocking finish,  but it's also one of the best pieces of interactive entertainment they've ever released.

We've been keeping our reviews free of major spoilers, so you can read our verdict on Episode 123 and 4 to get the measure of the series thus far. Our final verdict is no exception, meaning that the following few hundred words will be heavy on opinion and light on description.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 - In Sheep's Clothing Review | A Tad Woolly

Platforms: PCPSNXBLA

Developer: Telltale Games

It's difficult to write a review with clenched fists and white knuckles. I keep catching sight of my dilated pupils and sweat-drenched brow in my monitor's reflection, bashing away at the keyboard with gritted teeth.

See, The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 psyched me up for a fight using every psychological weapon in its arsenal... then completely failed to deliver one.

Of course, that's what it was always supposed to do. The penultimate episode of Telltale's excellent series is designed to set up the finale, tie up some loose ends and get us ready for the big finish, and I appreciate that. Unfortunately it does so by treading water and vaguely floating sideways when all we really want to do is push forward.

Before we begin: be aware that I'm not going to spoil the big twists from Episode 1, 2 and 3 - and I assume that you're already au fait with the premise.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3 - A Crooked Mile Review | The Extra Mile

Platforms: PCPSNXBLA

Developer: Telltale Games

The Wolf Among Us reeled us in, and Episode 1 was the hook. It caught us expertly, brutally worked us over and left us desperate for more; a triumph of storytelling, twists and characterisation that pulled no punches.  Then Episode 2 took its sweet time turning up before sitting us down and asking if we'd like a cup of tea. A necessary lull, but we're good and ready for the storm now.

Episode 3: A Crooked Mile is happy to oblige.

Telltale are back on form, delivering a superbly-paced slice of stylish, gritty and often gutwrenchingly emotional procedural drama. Hot on the trail of his prime suspect, Bigby finds himself in a desperate race against time that still manages to expand on both the universe, the characters and the big bad wolf himself - while introducing a fantastic new villain.

Since I know that some of you will be reading this review to make up your mind about buying the season pass, we're going to avoid spoiling the major twists from the first two episodes. Somehow.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - Smoke & Mirrors Review | Driven Snow

Platforms: PCPSNXBLA

Developer: Telltale Games

After the brilliant and bittersweet gut punch that was The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1, it's no surprise that Episode 2 gives us time to recover. Time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start making sense of the preceding few hours.

Yes, it's time for the difficult second album. Smoke & Mirrors is exactly what you'd expect: a slower, shorter, more thoughtful and somewhat less satisfying episode that still keeps you raptly glued to the screen for its two hour runtime.

If you're reading this, I assume that you've already got a working knowledge of Bill Willingham's Fables universe and played Episode 1. Here's the skinny just in case: all your favourite fairytale characters are real, living in 1980s New York in an underground society and doing awful things to survive. After a hunt for a serial killer and sickening revelation leaves sheriff Bigby Wolf (The Big Bad Wolf) reeling, Episode 2 opens with our antihero facing police interrogation, before eventually picking up the scent of a shocking new lead.

Game of the Month | October 2013

October turned out to be a fairly close-run thing, but not featuring the games that we were expecting, to be honest. Had we been predicting this month's top three back over the summer, the likes of Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls and WB Montreal's Batman: Arkham Origins might have found their way into the mix. Both, however, fell well short of the mark.

But to cast October as a disappointing month would be unfair. On the contrary, we've had a smashing new Pokemon game; Nintendo overhauled one of their most divisive Zelda titles and turned it into a model of modern perfection; Ubisoft listened to their critics and delivered a stonkingly good game in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag; and then you have WWE 2K14, Dragon's Crown, The Wolf Among Us, and Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies.

It's been a damn fine month.

Five Ways In Which Telltale Schools Quantic Dream With The Wolf Among Us

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 grabs us by the throat, shakes us out and leaves us begging for more. A superb detective story with shocking twists, complex characters and meaningful choices galore, brought to life in Willingham's daring and imaginative Fables setting. - The Wolf Among Us Review

I'll be honest. I've never really paid a great deal of attention to DC's output beyond Batman. I've always been rather more of a Marvel man myself, though in recent years I hate to say that I've found less time for comic books and graphic novels. As such, Bill Willington's Fables series sailed past me completely. But I'm so incredibly glad that I leapt into Telltale's latest episodic adventure series, based on the world and the characters that Willington created. I've found myself disappointed by a number of the games that masses of others have been telling me are "masterpieces" of late, and I'm still not done castigating Quantic Dream for Beyond just yet.

But that disappointment in particular is made more stark by the arrival of The Wolf Among Us, which shows that you don't need Hollywood actors or ludicrously expensive motion capture studios or the backing of a major publisher and platform holder to deliver a game that appeals to our hearts as well as our heads and places story -- good storytelling -- at the very forefront of things.

With that in mind, here are five ways in which I feel Telltale comprehensively schools Quantic Dream in the art of delivering an impactful, narrative-driven adventure title.

Do bear in mind that there may be minor spoilers within.

Genre

Five Ways In Which Telltale Schools Quantic Dream With The Wolf Among Us

The evidence is there for all to see. Murder mysteries, detective procedurals, tales of intrigue -- these are all adventure game staples. You look at the likes of Broken Sword and L.A. Noire and Sam & Max and Heavy Rain. These are all games with unanswered questions at their core, and The Wolf Among Us is no different. I'm not saying, of course, that you can't have stories that don't fit into the crime genre, that would be ridiculous. But any stories of sleuthing are bound to be able to help counterbalance the lack of interaction and traditional action-oriented gameplay because the unanswered questions are what fuel you onwards. You want to unravel the mystery, find the killer, solve the puzzle.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 Review | Shrek For The Drive Generation

Platforms: PC | PSN | XBLA

Developer: Telltale Games

Imagine that every fairytale you were told as a child was actually real, and they're living in 80s New York. Snow White. Beauty and the Beast. Toad and Badger from Wind In The Willows. Tweedledum and Tweedledee. The three little pigs and the Big Bad Wolf. All eking out a living in the mundane world, thinly veiled from our sight by weakening magic and forced to resort to increasingly grim means to get by in the sleazy underbelly of the Big Apple. The Wolf Among Us is a little like Shrek, if you will, but recast for fans of Drive and Law & Order.

Bill Willingham's Fables series of graphic novels has an utterly splendiferous premise, and was arguably crying out for a videogame adaptation worthy of the material. Factor in the same developers behind The Walking Dead and you'd be forgiven for getting just a little excited about this new interactive detective story.

David Cage take note: games definitely can toe the line with barely interactive drama, but you need a superb story to pull it off. Beyond: Two Souls sadly didn't have one, not by a long shot. The Wolf Among Us, on the other hand, is set up to be an absolute belter if Episode One is anything to go by.
