I really liked the original Walking Dead game. It steared away from the traditional zombie shooter and built really enjoyable character lines. Survival Instinct, on the other hand, went right down the shooter road, and barely made any attempt to build characters. They're just running, that's all you need to know really. The gameplay got really repetitive and boring not too far into the game and I actually found myself eager for it to end. And when it did, I wasn't shocked at the lack of finesse it had. The original had an awesome ending that really grabbed you and made you wonder what happened. Survival Instinct just flopped in that department. I hope the game designers look at the success of the first installment compared to this one if they decide to make any more in the series. Go back and do it right again. We don't need any more turds.
