When I think of zombie games I get giddy at the thought of fighting my way through hordes, bashing brains in, and unloading clips.
When I first turned this game on, about 10 minutes in I was thinking, ugghhh this is going to be painfully slow. I almost sent it back in right then, but I am glad I did not.
Though somewhat limited in movement and interaction, the storyline is engaging enough to keep you going alone. They also do manage to throw in some quick decisions/actions that keep you on your toes.
For the most part this feels just like playing an interactive show, which is clearly their intent by breaking it up in episodes. As I worked my way through I got attached to characters and then watched them live out their fates, oftentimes brutal and horrific and shortlived.
I found it an interesting take and a different experience altogether. Quite emotionally involving and more fun than just watching a show!
