    "The Walking Dead really feels like the comic book in game form. I picked up the season pass and have loved every minute of it. The characters and dialogue are near-perfect translation of their comic counterparts. The story really helps to flesh out the world and the game-play will keep you on your toes."

    "By far the best game based upon comic book heroes. It is not a disappointment. It has some of the best comic book super heroes and villians like including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Nightwing, Catwoman, Cyborg, and Harley Quinn, just to name few. This is the best it gets."

    "I'm always searching Steam for video games based on my favorite comic books. Batman is one of my favorite characters ever. I wasn't impressed with the Batman: The Telltale Series though. While the graphics and storyline are on point, I find point-and-click games so boring. I never thought Batman could be boring. I was action and fun in my video games. This is not that. "

    "Deadpool is a comic character who broke through the fourth wall, the line between the player and character. Deadpool realizes this and communicates with the player through the voices in his head. This IMHO makes Deadpool riveting, plus all the cool weapons make this the greatest!"
