  A Flawed game that still has many good features

| | See all fatorson's reviews (314)

I find the reviews of this games slightly harsh.In as much as it could have been better and does have its problems it does also have a degree of tension and dread which when not compared to its source material makes for a half decent Zombie Game.A few of the main problems I would say are lack of Food and Ammo to be picked up as well as an inability to open Fridges or smash drinks machines etc to access anything inside,also there may well be the facility of storing ammo,weapons and food in your chosen van/car but given that each level demands you to use up all of these things before you can get back to your transport,it seems like a useless option.The targeting systems was also vey fiddly!!! you find yourself with a full Health bar which within seconds is drained by attacking Walkers that cant be hit because you cant line up the RB button with their head.Blimey! I didn't mean to go down the road of totally ripping into this game but there are more negatives than plus points.Still very enjoyable once you understand the controls and get into the story.

Perfect for fans of the walking dead! Great story too! I really enjoyed it! Is quite a short game though.

  Enjoyable

In a nutshell I bought this as I am a massive fan of The Walking Dead, this game is EXACTLY the same as Dead Island, albeit with Daryl and Merle added from the show. And that's it.

This is the worst Zombie game ever avoid at all cost, after watching the superb Tv series i expected better. The graphics are basic and bland, not worth 40 quid at all. If you want a good Zombie game stick to Left 4 Dead 1 2 and Dead Island -Dead Rising, this has let the Tv series down big time. It had the makings of a good game but failed terribly, shame on you Activision.

  DO NOT BUY!!!!!!

Horrible cash grabbing game made cheaply and quickly to cash in on the popularity of the tv series. The gfx are clunky chunky atrocities, the gameplay is bland. There's tons wrong with game that I can't even bring myself to go into as I'm a huge fan of the series and was looking forward to this. Between this and aliens:colonial marines it appears movie/tv tie in games are rolling back to when it was a cert they would be stinkers. DO NOT waste a penny on this game, if you really need to play it then hire it but even then you'll feel cheated outa your money

Very rushed ,wait for this to go down in price finished this in 7 hours .
Problems :
Graphics are so muddy
Story is boring could have been so great.
Length as stated 6 hrs campaign, maybe 7 if i look 4 collectibles.
Just would have been nice if they developed their ideas .

  Misleading game title

The game is awful.
I advise you not to buy this game. The title is misleading because it doesn't look like survival to me. It isn't a free world map, you can't drive, some doors are stick glued and killing zombies is easier than it seems (yeah, I know they're stupid but come on... If you want to make a good game, you got to make it difficult. Otherwise is just going to be an easy game to pass and with nothing big to accomplish).
Just because it has "The Walking Dead" in the title it doesn't mean it's going to be good. It's like an offense to the show and to Daryl himself. You don't get attached to the characters and the graphics are PS2 alike. The areas look repetitive and are small. The objectives look all the same and it gets boring after a while.
3/10
