    "Very visually appealing, graphically heavy game. Great story line with such a variety of characters, storylines and dialogue that one could get lost and nearly never find their way back to reality. It's very challenging and fun to play solo or with others. I love the creativity and massive attention to every detail that makes it so engaging!"

    "I did not see where this game suggested was particularly dialogue heavy. It is an action game with some dialogue interaction. So, I am not sure this addresses the problem exactly."

    "The Wolf Among Us is a comprehensive story-based game which has lots of things to do and a good amount of dialogue to follow along with. The only issue is some people may consider the game too simplistic and formulaic as there's nothing "new" but I feel the graphics along make up for that. Recommended."

    "This is easily the best video game based on a series I've ever played. Its lore is rich and the characters are just as compelling as they are in the show/comic book, and I love how important each of your decisions are in the game. Definitely would recommend this--in fact, I'm recommending it to myself as I'm about to do a third play through!"

    "This is the game for all those gamers that want intellectual stimulation as well. There are games that the skill level and maneuvers are enough, then there are others that tell a story and take you on the adventure. Baldur's Gate draws in the gamer that enjoys word play as well as sword play. "

    "I'm scratching my head and thinking about the dialogue used in GTA5 and I don't ever feel like it was too wordy although the storyline was very involved and the characters do often speak during gameplay. I mean GTA5 is one of the best games ever so I guess it would also be the best dialogue-heavy games too. "
