Fables: Wolf Among Us Episode 2: Smoke and Mirrors (Steam Store)
Just when things were quieting down in Fabletown, another murder occurs and this victim shares similarities with Snow White.
In this episode, the game goes further into the dark side of Fabletown. You see just how unlucky some of the Fables were and what they had to do to support themselves. I don’t want to give anything away but you get to meet a well known fairy tale character, only with the little known original ending. The only problem I have in the story is a slight continuity error but it’s not one I’m going to get too upset about.
The game play is the same as the last one. You make dialogue choices at the right time and sometimes you have to make decisions that influence the story. Unlike the Walking Dead video game, the decisions aren’t as crucial. You can make deductions and participate in quick time events.
This game is addictive and intriguing. I give it 8 out of 10; can’t wait for the next episode.
