After playing through Telltale Games’ “The Walking Dead: Season One” last year, gamers were left with a desire for more of the zombie apocalypse survivor stories. Well, that craving has finally been whet, as Telltale Games has released an add-on for the game in the form of downloadable content, “The Walking Dead: 400 Days.” The game includes four different chapters that follow five main characters during their first 400 days of the zombie apocalypse.
    Fans of the original game will be familiar with the attention to plot, appearance and character development found in “400 Days.” To stay true to the original game, the stories still weave in and out of events from the previous “Season One” game, but gone are the main characters Lee and Clem and introduced are five brand new but equally interesting characters.
    Like before, the characters and stories are very well voiced and written. The attention to detail really makes you care about the characters and how their stories will progress. The point-and-click adventure style of gameplay returns, which gives gamers an easy yet engaging element to enjoy. There is a nice blend of gunplay and action as well as slower point-and-click exploration elements in the game. 
    My only gripes with the game are the occasional freezes in gameplay when the game saves during important scenes. Also, the total time of gameplay is so short that I completed the game in about two hours, but that was somewhat expected with a $5 add-on. You really get a steal for the price.
    Even though the game is less than two hours in length, “The Walking Dead: 400 Days” makes up for it with a great narrative and back story. It’s because of the great back story and plot that I did not want it to end when it did. I’m really looking forward to the next season of “The Walking Dead” from Telltale Games, and “400 Days” did a great job preparing people for what is to come.
