I went out and just bought the game because it's a zombie game, The Walking Dead and you play as Daryl lol and I'm not at all disappointed that I did. May not be the best game in any aspect but I still enjoy playing the game very much. And as far as zombie games go it would be my favorite overall if it had a co-op mode which is it's greatest downfall imo. Other than that I like it. Just like with every other review you'll read you'll have to take this for what it is. MY opinion and you can't trust to have the same experience as I or another.
Though I'd say rent it first just to be safe, no harm done there.
I played the previous Walking Dead. I fell in love with the story, pretty decent action and twisted plots (no spoiling). however, most may not have liked the lack of FPS-ness or blowing heads of constantly. looks like this game was more of what people may have wanted, especially since it didnt have the "cartoon" graphics like borderlands.
to the point. I couldn't play this game. you are slow, you have ineffective melee weapons to start, and a sniper rifle, in right quarters, and with limited ammo... need I go on? this wouldn't be bad if it wasn't so easy to get swarmed. I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 bc they actually tried a little, but this game gave me a headache. played about a half hour and sent it back. I'm always a person who takes reviews with a grain a salt because I've liked games with horrible ratings and hated games with great ratings (pirates of the carribean, fallout 3). so it's definitely worth a rent for those who still feel they wanna give it a shot. but in my opinion, this game was... not good.
