After playing Telltale’s superb Walking Dead, The Wolf Among us was a must-play. However, there was one issue…I’d played The Walking Dead on my PS3 and had just purchased The Wolf Among Us on Steam. Was the jump from pad to mouse+keyboard going to ruin my experience?
NPC Interaction and Investigation with The Wolf Among Us PC
As you would imagine, conversation and exploration is effortless with the mouse. It’s a simple case of point-and-click and it’s really what a game like The Wolf Among Us was designed for.
The Wolf Among Us PC QTE Movement Controls
Player movement is kept straight-forward with your standard keyboard directional controls (W, S, D and A). Any time Bigby is forced to hastily move or evade attacks, you’ll be prompted to use these keys. Wherever the on-screen arrows point…hit that direction. Easy.
QTE Fighting Controls for The Wolf Among Us PC
This mechanic turns out to be super-smooth and less frustrating than a pad. Once those circular icons appear on-screen, simply move your mouse towards them. You’ll feel like a fairy tale bad-ass and the only things you’ll need to worry about are evading and making a decision before the timer runs out. Yes, you can pause the game but that’s technically cheating (so slap yourself in the face for thinking about it, you filth!).
All in all The Wolf Among Us for PC is actually a much more fluid experience. I must admit, I was expecting QTE’s to demand random key mashing across half the keyboard. Thankfully, it’s all to do with the directional keys and your mouse (with ‘Q’ being the one button you mash when you’re knee-deep in the brown, squishy stuff).
Whatever version of The Wolf Among Us you play, you’re going to thoroughly enjoy it.
