Weekly wrap-up 5/4/2012
Hey, GameZone readers! It's another Friday, which means two things. First, the weekend is upon us. Second, it's time for our weekly wrap-up, where we look at the latest content of the week and condense it all into one small package. Miss anything? Perhaps you're interested in The Walking Dead: Episode 1 or Mortal Kombat for the Vita. You'll find the latest reviews, previews, and more right here.
Hack, Slash, Loot review (PC)
While it may feature a charming retro aesthetic, this old school-inspired dungeon crawler fails to deliver a satisfying experiencing, relying on tedious mechanics and questionable design.
Fable Heroes review (Xbox 360)
This downloadable spin-off of the Fable series isn't without a few flaws, but it still provides some cool mini-games and a lot of fun hack-and-slash gameplay.
Mortal Kombat review (Vita)
The blood-soaked fighter that took consoles by storm last year returns in portable form, and yes, it's still really awesome.
The Walking Dead: Episode 1 review (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
Not only is the first chapter of Telltale's take on The Walking Dead affordable, it's also impressive, offering a lot of memorable gameplay for fans of the series looking for something to do in between reading the comic books and watching the TV show.

Featuring graphics and gameplay inspired by old school games, this indie download is challenging yet engaging and familiar yet refreshing.
