About

The Wolf Among Us is a five-part episodic game relying heavily on dialogues and choices of the player. The game is considered a prequel to Bill Willingham's 'Fables' comic book and features usual TellTale stylistics: cartoon-like graphics, comparing your choices to the decisions of the other players and QTEs. 'The Wolf' is the first part of the series with a promised expansion to the second season coming out in 2019.
You play as Bigby Wolf; he is a Sheriff of a Fabletown: as a typical Sheriff, you need to fulfill the requests of the Fabletown's residents and uncover mysteries lying behind the crimes there. The gameplay consists of choosing the dialogue options, reacting to QTE button-mash and watching cutscenes.
The critics are marking down that unlike many other TellTale games 'The Wolf Among Us' borrows original comic book's portrayal thus looking better, and having the original as sequel before you eyes lets you engage with Fabula more quickly.

The Wolf Among Us reviews and comments

Telltales best work by far!
Es el segundo videojuego de TellTales que juego, el primero fué Walking Dead, el cual recomiendo muy fuertemente.
En este caso, TWAU, me costo un poco entrarle al principio, creo que siempre me pasa con los juegos narrativos, pero después de una semanas abandonado y un segundo intento pude apreciar seriamente la historia y disfrutarla.

Es un videojuego, que si no estas acostumbrado a la narrativa o si no lo buscas, te resultará tedioso el poco margen de acción que tienes, pero indudablemente si le das una oportunidad la historia te encantará.

Después de haberlo jugado he empezado a leer las historietas de Fables. Increible.
This game made me read! comic books, but still.  I read the entire run of Fables after playing this, and I loved it.  This game gets an exceptional, but mostly so do the comics, go read them.

The classic Telltale formula, that never changes.  Consistency can be a good thing.  The writing is mostly strong, if a little overly hard boiled.  The quick time events are responsive, and there are enough twists and turns to keep you constantly playing.  The comic look is great, too.

The story was so good. In retrospect it might seem like a generic thriller but the story flowed so well. I thought Interactive games will be bland but turns out it can be good too.
The choices do lead to different behaviour from people but mostly the story keeps the same course.
It's a great game as a whole and I like the OST on the home screen a lot.
«Blew my mind»
This game about fairy tale characters is better than most crime fiction on HBO.

Great story and graphics
«Can’t stop playing»
Just recently replayed this game after a long time and fell in love all over again. What elevates this well above the other Telltale stalwart The Walking Dead is how effective this is as a mystery story. Obviously Telltale had already proven their strengths in this wheelhouse of narrative choose-your-adventure style gaming with that game, but simply put, a mystery story in the Telltale formula makes for a more effective game than a survival-type game. With the player in the role of detective, there is greater encouragement to explore every nook and cranny of a given room, navigate the many dialogue trees carefully, and there is greater urgency when being forced to pursue one lead over another.

Another stroke of genius (and I suppose 'Fables' architect Bill Willingham is owed credit for this) is that in true mystery fashion, everyone is a suspect, but as a player you actually already have a second-hand understanding of who most if not all of the characters are already. Just as Bigby has lived with his fellow Fables for hundreds and hundreds of years, you too have also known the characters since you were a child. Even though it is a fantastical world to buy into, your familiarity with it allows you to start off the game right away acting in a place of authority over the world of the game, and that is awesome. The game's finale also puts the critical eye over your entire play style, which is fantastic. While abusing your power doesn't always have immediate consequences, by game's end they can catch up with you. All in all, this is definitely the best mystery-style game I've played. Its simplicity trounces all over something like L.A. Confidential and make for a fun and rewarding gaming experience.
