Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of The Wolf Among Us, Episode 1: Faith on the Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360 developed and published by Telltale Games.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall…why is Telltale Games so good at adventure games? Following up their 2012 blockbuster The Walking Dead, Telltale is back with The Wolf Among Us, yet another point-and-click masterwork. This time, players are taken into the vile streets of Fabletown, a rundown area of the city where the fables live. And who are the fables? You know them. They’re Snow White, and Mr. Toad, and Beauty and the Beast, and all the fairy tale characters you grew up with. They’ve had to leave their home world and come to the real world. Episode 1 introduces us to the game’s world and tone, as well as our main character—the sheriff Bigby Wolf. You may know him as the Big Bad Wolf, but he’s trying to put his past behind him. Early in this episode, Bigby meets a young girl named Faith, a former princess who’s had to adopt a lifestyle that’s anything but regal. Faith is about to meet with a terrible fate, an event that starts a spiral of tragedy that pulls Bigby right into the center. The Wolf Among Us, Episode 1: Faith is a stylish and violent adventure that proves life in the real world is no fairy tale.
