After being sent to near death in last episode, a beaten and battered Bigby Wolf must uncover the larger mystery surrounding The Crooked Man and Bloody Mary.  At around 1 hour in play length, this game runs on the short side.  That being said, the story for In Sheep’s Clothing is intense and you get the feeling that we are working to the climax of the next and final first season episode of The Wolf Among Us. I am really excited to see what happens.

Gameplay:

The gameplay is the same as all of the previous episodes. It is a classic point and click adventure where you hover your mouse over something you want to look at and click to look at it. You get to pick everything that the main character, Bigby, does and this has consequences for the short and long term. Battle sequences have you testing your quick time skills. Telltale has really hit on a winning formula for story driven, point and click adventures and I don’t see any need for them to play with the formula to try to make it better. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

I have said this before and I will say it again… The art style Telltale utilizes simply rocks. Everything looks like it has been ripped from the Walking Dead graphic novels. That is to say that it looks hand drawn. The color pallet provides a gloomy atmosphere that is perfect for this game. The voice actors are spot on with their performances as well.

Conclusion:

If you like the Fables comics or Telltale games, you should not hesitate to play this game. The Wolf Among Us is great. I cannot wait to see how this season concludes!
