The Wolf Among Us Episode 3, titled A Crooked Mile, zooms the camera out and provides some of the most meaty, memorable moments of the series to date. Nearly every scene succeeds at introducing new characters I wanted to know more about, or fleshing out those who’ve only skirted the edges of the story in the past two episodes. And by providing enough tough decisions with legitimate consequences, A Crooked Mile has made Wolf Among Us feel more like my own authored story than ever before.
My main gripe with Episode 2 was that it didn’t feel like Telltale moved the major plot forward all that much. Well, I’m happy to report that A Crooked Mile makes every second of Bigby’s 90-minute story count. Entering the apartment of an ancient witch and meeting the one person in Fabletown who still clings to the old world brought a really powerful sense of magic to the story.
