The fat arm of the law

Although this is one of Telltale Games' lesser known releases, and is certainly a far cry from the Walking Dead, this distinctly oddball adventure is well worth picking up if you want something a bit more offbeat. It combines a very British sense of humor with some clever point-and-click style puzzles and an unusual storyline to generally good effect but be warned, it's not for the easily offended. The story is told over three episodes, and finds one of the dodgiest cops ever caught up in a series of testing cases. The first episode sees him in the midst of a complex hostage situation, while the second finds him on the trail of a twisted psychopath, before the season finale which sees him saving his beloved hometown from certain destruction. This is very similar to other Telltale releases, where you wander around various locations, following the story while making the occasional decision and solving puzzles. What marks this one out though, is its sheer level of outrageousness. Right from the start, you're bombarded with characters and dialogue that are rude, sarcastic and just way out there, so if this sort of thing bothers you, don't bother applying here. However, if you find this sort of thing amusing, then there is much to enjoy here. The jokes are pretty funny for the most part, although anyone not acquainted with British culture might miss a lot of the gags. Fortunately, there's more to the game than just the jokes, with some clever and enjoyable puzzles, and some stylish visuals. If you like your adventures on the knuckle and consider King's Quest to be a bit too noncy, then definitely add this to your collection.
