Even though the critics chewed through it. the game is not bad, it delivers as promised. All of the laws in the series apply in the game . it is one those trial and error game-play types. no real consequence for death other then having to star off without items obtained after check point.
game-play is veguly similar COD-BO zombies, the graphics have a retro feel definitely not bad " who wants to see decaying flesh in HD " as far as zombie killing even though the only reward for killing zombies are trophies based not gameplay based after a while killing zombies feels less scary and more comical based on weapon of choice " lead pipe being the most funny"
the game makes up for being short with decent replay ability . Overall not as bad as the critics said . normally games based of popular franchise's often get slammed because of hard to please fan . if it wasn't walking dead related it probably would have been better received

Well, I know a lot of people hated this game. It had its ups and downs. Now that I've finished I'll put my two cents in on pros & cons.
The Good :
Voice acting for Daryl by Norman Reedus is great.
Survival Horror elements strongly present in this game.
After game ending bonuses are received as incentive to play again (i.e. access to the crossbow & M16 at game start, melee weapon boost, etc)
Justice for the lack of gun use in earlier levels due to danger of attracting the horde is received during your time at the military camp level.
The Bad :
Glitches! Zombies will spawn out of thin air. No room or area is EVER truly cleared in this game. Ever. Close doors behind you (seriously) and keep a lookout.
A word on firepower...Guns in this game attract a large crowd of zombies truckin' your way and trust me, you don't have enough time or bullets to put 'em down!
Merle isn't in the game a whole lot, and other survivor characters seem bland and I let several go to avoid the burden. Do your own scavenging because they often won't return and will take whatever weapon you gave them with them to zombie land forever.
You're on the road a lot but there is no driving aspect in this game. You too are a passenger.
All in all, this really could have been a PS2 title. It frustrates, leaves you wanting so much more from it and ends quite abruptly. I am a big fan of the show and of the Telltale game. I wanted to love this game. I stuck it out and finished it but won't start a new game to check out those unlockables because I just don't have the time or interest. Maybe someday when this game is in a gamestop bargain bin. Don't take my word for it though, play it yourself..
