Bad

An interesting idea but...

I found the story itself interesting at least in premise but the production values graphics and over all style of the game were so lacking that it was almost a joke, this reminded me more of an original xbox game than something belonging to the 360.

The audio was alright with the theme from The walking dead playing a role and it did try to maintain that atmosphere from the television show with the use of lighting effects creepy music and the overall pace of the game.

Set design was fairly well executed with the usual clutter of cars trucks and other things though a bit more detail would have made it feel a bit more like the tv show.

Where it falls short of is somewhat clumsy controls when stealth and precise movement are so integral to the game. Weapons were largely inaccurate and weren't effective at ranges much past the range of your knife, the hunting rifle and its kin being obvious exceptions but even that you were forced to stay long range or it soon became useless.

With stealth being such an integral part of the game i was truly supprised their was no indicator as to how visible or noisy you were to the zombies there were times i thought for sure i should have been atracting dozens of them and not a one turned my way on the other hand sometimes trying to be stealthy was all but impossible.

All in all the game had good idea's but needed way more time to polish before it was released.

The game needs better graphics and quality. The actual gameplay is garbage due to watching the show and relizing that it usually takes one hit to kill the zombie, and it takes forever in the game and this makes it a lot harder to get around and trying to finish your mission if your having to watch out constantly which makes the game boring and not as fun as it should be.
