*Don’t worry Snow; We’ll catch him*
The Crooked Mile picks up from where Smoke & Mirrors left off with Bigby Wolf finding out that Ichabod Krane was at the murder scene of the latest dead fable which leads Bigby and Snow to lead a full on manhunt for Ichabod as they try to find the answers behind his motives and who provided him with the glamor however as the pieces start to go together; They suddenly get taken apart again as Bigby soon realizes that they have stumbled upon a conspiracy which may be bigger than they originally thought.
The Gameplay for Episode 3 is once again a lot like the rest of the entries in The Wolf Among Us using the well known Telltale Point and click gameplay that the studio has become well known for in recent years. In addition to this, The Wolf Among Us series also involves an element of detective work such as finding different objects at all the crime scenes and putting all the pieces together to ultimately find the culprit before time runs out.
The opening theme for The Wolf Among Us is as brilliant as ever as is the fantastic voice acting done by the great talents of Telltale veterans; Adam Harrington, Erin Ashe, Dave Fennoy, Melissa Hutchison & Gavin Hammon to name a few.
The graphics on The Wolf Among Us use the same comic book style as The Walking Dead which in ways makes the game more faithful to the original source content. Episode 3 also offered us our first look at the truly monstrous side of Bigby with him going full moon on us.
Like all the other episodes of The Wolf Among Us; The episode features a book of fables which allows you to unlock descriptions on all the characters depending on your choices giving the game plenty of replayability to find everything in the episode.
All in all, The Wolf Among Us is one of those Telltale series which seems to get better and better by the episode. If you haven’t already, Try and get the Season Pass as soon as possible.
