Thoughts on the news of the Walking Dead FPS?

I can't seem to find the forum that goes to this however I personally think that this is just going to crash and burn and be a waste of time both for terminal reality and gamers.

To me the series is more about the characters and the survival aspects, not the killing of zombies. If I want a game where I'm shooting zombies, I'll put in Left4Dead thank you very much.

Anyways what's your guys thoughts on the matter? If this goes down the drain do you think this will be the end of Terminal Reality much like Activision done with Radical?

Not sure it fits the whole FPS genre and the guys making it are responsible for the critically acclaimed Kinect Star Wars.

They can try and make it work but i don't think they will do The Walking Dead justice like TellTale, i think they have done it perfectly, from gameplay to storytelling.

I believe that the adventure game is the best use of The Walking Dead franchise and the fps game is just plain poinntless

I'm not holding out much hope for the FPS. They claim it will have a lot of "strategy" elements to it, but there is only so much you can do with that game type

I'm excited for it. Looking for a good zombie game I can get into with a good story.

Walking Dead. :P

There is no reason for this game to be an FPS, but leave it up to activision to turn anything into a FPS.

First things first.Ghostbusters sucked!Every second of gameplay was terrible, so were the graphics. However I am willing to keep an open mind about the game. I'm hopeing for a zombie game in the vein of Bioshock or Metro 2033. Something with an atmosphere and a fully realized world to explore and survive in. I want scavange for supplies, build up fortifications just for them to be ripped down and have to escape. I want to explore a hospital full of death and destruction for hours on end.

Anyway thats what im hopeing for... Lets see if they can deliver.The universe and setting are ripe for it.

First of all, I think the people who will buy this game and really really enjoy it are the fans of the TV series. I mean I don't know much about it, but I don't think I will be purchasing this unless I read a preview or something that will impress me.

The Walking Dead as a whole franchise is HUGELY based on character development and amazing storytelling. I don't know how much creative control Kirkman/AMC will have over the game, but I guarantee they won't let Activision ship a shitty game. I'm looking forward to it, I reckon it'll be good, but I can't see it being better than Telltale's

Not interested in the FPS game at all. The Walking Dead is about the story and the characters. It's not about the zombie killing.

If I want to play a zombie FPS I'll stick with Left 4 Dead, thanks.

Will reserve judgement until I see more, but my hopes aren't high. I thought terminal reality did a good job with Ghostbusters (apart from the knackered achievements obviously), but don't think this is the sort of genre to get the best out of TWD.

If it's anything like Left 4 Dead it already fails in my book, The Walking Dead is not meant to be a run and gun, it's about strategic survival, not shooting every zombie you come across and be as loud as possible, if anything it needs to be similar to Dead Island in an open world sort of way, give you the choice of getting passed a zombie or taking it out with risk of alerting others, if this game is going to be successful, it needs to be an RPG...

A lot of instant hate here, doesn't help that Activision is tied to this either.
Before we hate so harshly, give them a chance to prove themselves. You honestly don't have a valid reason to doubt them yet.

FPS's can definitely have enthralling gameplay and compelling storytelling (Think Bioshock).
Sure it could be a standard action shooter, but you gotta stay positive right?

A zombie FPS sounds more interesting than yet another military FPS. Playing as Darryl and Merle sounds like it could be kinda fun as well. It's not on top of my waiting list, but it certainly has stirred my interest.

Same here. I will try it regardless of what I see. As long as they keep their standards high it will definitely be better than the clunky competition. *cough*Dead Island*cough*
