The Collection Ruined My Experience
So, in preparation for The Final Season, I decided to purchase The Walking Dead Collection (only a few days prior to knowing about it bring the pre-order bonus) and I have to say, whilst the graphics are an improvement, it is such a messy game full of more bugs and glitches than the previous versions.
Season One was fine for the most part (thank goodness), but I did run into an issue in episode 3 that prevented progression: I couldn't enter the van to get the pencil, so I had to restart the entire episode just for a feckin pencil and I remember a similar hug occurred when I played the original version several years ago...
Season Two started to get worse though. First I'd like to comment on how ridiculous Clem's fast walking is and how annoying the item icons are staying on the left side of the screen. The biggest problem however we're the choices from season one not transferring properly, Vince didn't appear, Kenny says he shot Duck, Lilly killed Doug and Clem gave different advice about guns to Sarah, these were rather annoying and so was the inability to give Rebecca water in episode when I didn't give it to the dying man or Pete.
A New Frontier was the breaking point for me though, I ended Season 2 with Jane and the family but I get the Alone ending flashback??
How is it that a compilation of choice based games on the same disc struggle so much to actually record your choices when they're in every choice tab for every episode??? Not only that but the collection honestly just feels rather lazy, no end credits music, no next time segments, the next episode instantly playing and the choice screens at the end of each episode all share the same screenshot?? I'm seriously disappointed Telltale, I have faith you're doing your all to make TFS amazing but is this collection really how you want people to experience your games?
