The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a fascinating exercise in rapid-fire storytelling. This is not the saga of Lee and Clementine, two characters whose relationship grew and evolved over the course of five episodes in The Walking Dead proper . No, this...

Please no, I don’t think I can take anymore. After the harrowing finale to Telltale’s Game of the Year nominee you’re asking me to play a whole new episode? And I’ll still have Season Two to get through later this year?...

The Walking Dead can still be gut-wrenching, nerve-wracking and powerful, thanks to Telltale’s excellent storytelling and atmospheric graphics that make the characters feel alive. If you’ve played The Walking Dead this is essential. If you haven’t, buy it now and then buy this.

400 Days is a wonderfully written adventure and the high point of the Walking Dead game...

Series 2 may return to their stories, it may just put these survivors in the background for the next set to have a quick chat with and never think about again. In the here and now though, they feel like they matter, and that’s what counts – even in a world with nothing left to lose.

By Metro UK on 70

The whole concept runs contrary to many of the series’ strengths, but it’s still hard not to be engaged by what remains some of the best storytelling in gaming.

The individual stories in 400 Days are short - it's DLC, after all, not a new season. It's meant to tease Season Two and leave players wanting more, and in that respect it's a rousing success. When it's all done, we're left with five richly developed characters embarking on a new journey.

If The Walking Dead: Season 1 was the great American novel (zombie novel) in video game form, then The Walking Dead: 400 Days is classic, fictional short stories (zombie short stories) in video game form. Instead of connecting the player to a set of...

Surprises are great at birthday parties, and surprises are great here also. 400 Days is powerful at points, and Telltale continues to deliver narrative on a level most studios don't even care about aspiring to. But at the end of the day I'm...

A fantastic return of The Walking Dead, letting Telltale experiment with form without losing any of the...

By JumpToGamer on 85

Each story has jaw dropping moments that would be hard to achieve in such a short period of time, especially because I found myself laughing at the dialogue minutes before. But such a difference in emotion in such a small amount of time is what makes 400 Days special, and a worthy piece of DLC that bridges the gap between Season 1 and Season 2 of The Walking Dead: The Game.

By Examiner on 75

However, that’s is $5 well spent to those that enjoy the sometimes somber, sometimes heartbreaking and sometimes morality questioning choices that Telltale Games puts forth once again.

By DigitalTrends on 100

There’s never been anything quite like The Walking Dead in video games, and 400 Days amounts to a natural extension of Telltale’s innovative approach to interactive storytelling.

By EuroGamer on 70

The individual stories are crafted with the same level of care as the main series, but divorced from a larger, more personal tale, these scattershot scenes show their hand as unused B-sides. More ambitious, but less focused than Season One, 400 Days feels like its setting: a serviceable pit-stop on the way to a (hopefully) brighter future.

By TheControllerOnline on 80

You will still get the same great mix of adventure and action gameplay, as well as the same character driven narrative that you did in season one. Whether you’re new to The Walking Dead or just trying to tide yourself over until the second season, you should really go grab 400 Days.

By GamesRadar on 80

In fact, Telltale says that the choices made in 400 Days will greatly impact Season 2, but we won't know for sure until it comes out. Even without that carrot on a stick, the DLC is still worth checking out, if not just to hold you over until the dead walk again later this year.

By Polygon on 90

Either way, 400 Days is a wonderful little anthology and a heartening reminder that, even in a world that has been thoroughly mined across countless media, Telltale is still able to unearth new stories.

By GameInformer on 80

Some of these stories had me in frenzied thought, while others left me underwhelmed, but either way, 400 Days feels like a preparation for what's to come. As this DLC ups the shock factor, it makes it clear when season two rolls around that Telltale has no boundaries, and you should prepare your emotions accordingly.

By IGN on 89

The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a great appetizer for Season 2. The ending’s a bit too simple (Wait, if they’re hiding from people, why would they do that?) and I don’t love the characters like I loved Lee and Clem, but the action and drama show that Telltale still has it and isn’t satisfied to pump out exactly what the developers did last year.

International Review By Level 7 on 70

När jag började spela The Walking Dead anade jag knappast vad som väntade. För det som i början mest verkade vare en välskriven spelversion av det briljanta seriealbumet blev mot slutet något helt annat. Jag har...
