So with the release of Episode 3, and 2 more episodes confirmed for this game (A sequel was announced), I wonder what everyone's opinion is on the game.
I loved episode 1 and 2, but 3 kinda irked me, the game is built on the idea of choices, and what not. You save one person in episode 1 (Doug or Carley), and from there you build a deep friendship with them (You can get as far as a cheek kiss from Carley in episode 3).
My issue was, that in #3 the choices seemed limited. Namely because no matter how you choose it this time, the results have a very very minor effect. Examples.
Killing the random survivor wont impact how many zombies you'll face in the escape, and only offers dialogue difference for one cutscene later.
Regardless of who you saved in Episode 1 (Doug/Carley), they meet the same fate regardless of your relationship.
Lilly leaves the group regardless.
Kenny and Lee come to blows.
Kat and Duck's story has no impact, other than either having Lee or Kenny doing the deed at the end.
The new person, Omid, breaks his leg no matter what you do, crippling him. Also he gets on the train, regardless if you save him or not.
The only thing I saw for choice was the option to take other new member (Chuck)'s advice and cut Clem's hair. Like the red hoodie, it is optional, and may only be a cosmetic difference.
