I cant believe how awful this game really is, i had my doubts but givin the fact im a huge TWD fan I had to try it out. One of the worst games I have ever played! I cant say anything good about this one, just stick with telltale
The Walking Dead TV show and comic books were amazing. Telltale's game was also pretty good. But Survival Instinct SUCKS.
First of all, this game has a lot of good ideas in it. This game probably would have been good if the combat, graphics, story and pretty much everything else didn't suck. The combat is simple, swing your weapon or shoot, kill zombies. You can also execute zombies from behind, but this is useless considering you can just run away or jump onto a car where they can't get you. The graphics are pretty bad. If you looked at gameplay of this and a game like Battlefield 3 or Crysis 3, you would see the difference between 2013 graphics, and graphics from the early 2000s. The story is also forgettable. This is odd considering the story of the previous game by Telltale was outstanding. This game could be fun at times, slicing your way through zombies, but overall, this game is pretty terrible. My theory is this game was made because of the popularity of the TV show. Activision knew everyone would buy it, which is true. I don't blame you if you want to buy it, but I hope you consider this review.
a big fan of the show so i bought this game a night after it came out...popped it in the xbox and noticed so many flaws with graphics and so basic that i took it back the next day...i feel like there were some great ideas and concepts but the game was rushed out since the season 3 finale is almost around....had the company taken more time, this came could've been great.
