This game is bad

I can't say I'm disappointed because I figured it would be. Honestly though this game was just trying to cash in on the popularity of the show. The developers didn't put any effort into making this good.

Didn't have any high hopes for this game, but after renting it from Redbox earlier today I found it to be alright. I'm sure they could have done a lot better job if they had more time to work on it.

I knew it was gonna be bad from the first time i saw footage and then suddenly price drops within 2 weeks prior to games release to $40, but i am enjoying the rental...but like you said just a quick cash-in for AMC/Activision while the show is at it's peak with popularity. Just renting it/beating it/returning it!

Army of Two and Bioshock Infinite next week is where my money is going.

For a game that was obviously rushed it is excellent. It does have several kinks and problems (infinitely respawning zombies) but they can be fixed with a TU. Which hopefully we'll see since they are probably expected to make a sequel.

Everyone knows its a rushed tv show tie in. Im surprised im enjoying it as much as I am. Then again im a major walking dead fan. If I were to rate it I would give it maybe a 6-7 of 10. I would rate it on what it is though, a cheap rushed game that only existes for the title. Along those lines its a good cash in.

Hope this guy is trolling... cause this game's graphics and mechanics belong on a ps2 or original xbox. Rented it and sending it back as soon as I finish it. Don't waste $50 on this garbage. Even if you are a "true fan."

Kinda wish I didn't spend $50. Should have been $30, or a straight XBLA game.

Real Walking Dead fans should be looking at State of Decay, not this mediocre tie in title.

It takes three stabs to the head to kill a single zombie. The graphics and mechanics are awful. Being stealthy is a joke. You try to sneak up behind them and execute them but they turn around and the whole horde is alerted. As soon as one grabs you it's over. The inventory is stupid. You have know idea what the limit is and when it's full and you pick something up it will just discard a weapon. So I have no weapons currently. Yes, I'm a big fan of the TV show but I also like playing well made games so don't say I'm not a real fan because I don't like this game. Stop using the it's rushed excuse. Just admit its a crappy game.

1.Yea for a knife, try a machete, fire axe or daryls favorite weapon. usually those are one swing/shoot kills, if you can aim

2.Yes they are not the best, but ive seen far worse, the game isnt broken either, I havent gone to place to where I was stuck and have to start over.

3.Why be stealthy all the time? It will work when there are one or two but if there is a horde of them, run as fast as you can. Running is usually the best way.

4.Again, you cant do it when there is so many. Only two or three can usually work.

5.No its not. When you think or see one about to grab you pressing RB (or just keep pressing RB will shove them off to let you start running.

6.??? Press the back button will let you discard other things (drink,flare,bottles,etc) so you can keep your weapons.

7.To me it seems like you just dont know how to play the game yet, I didnt know how too either. It takes awhile. Its not the best game but it is pretty fun once you get used to it and know how to play. You didnt get it yet and made it seem its really bad. You just reviewed it to early.

People this is not a crappy game, It has some flaws but the game is pretty fun once you get the hang of it. So go try it out or give it a second chance.

So you should like it just because it's The Walking Dead? Isn't that what Apple fans get accused of? Liking a product because they like the brand?

The OP doesn't like the game, has has every right to voice his opinion in his thread right? Doesn't seem like he's the only one either.

That's what I hate most about gamers, 'graphics have to be good, blah blah blah!'. No they don't.

From watching a gameplay video on YouTube, the thing that stood out most was the A.I. Seems a little bit weak too me but obviously watching and playing are two different experiences entirely.

It's a perfectly fine time killer for late at night. I think it's very atmospheric, and with all its flaws, still a really fun game.

I've enjoyed it for what it is so far. A decent TV tie-in with zombie killing fun. Never expect GOTY quality. My biggest gripe is the story pertaining to their father, it contradicts what the show has already shared.

Now everyone is gonna pile the hate and say this game is the worst game ever made. Over exaggerating dumbasses that only think a game is two things. Perfect or shit. This is game is average, but it's still enjoyable.

I'm under the suspicion that this is someones second account. You join March 2013, and this is your first and only post. I will not take this opinion too seriously.

I watched the ending in a review that gave it a 3/10 and GOD DAMN, does this game look dumb as hell. If you think this game is good, you must not play "good" games. I must agree, the voice acting was done really well.

I think the Robert Kirkman (or whoever is in charge of selling the rights) should have got in touch with Deep Silver. Dead Island creators could have made one hell of a great game with The Walking Dead world.

For me, ill rent this and buy Dead Island: Riptide. Or as someone else had said earlier, State of Decay looks like a brilliant arcade game (if my memory serves me right).

If your main opinion on a game being garbage is 'graphics', you'll forgive me for not giving a crap what you say.
As for mechanics; they don't seem that bad from what I've seen, watching a let's play and TotalBiscuits 'WTF is' of the game. He himself was relatively surprised in it when he was talking about non-existent noise detection by the AI, only to discover that he was actually wrong and it was implemented.
The main issue I have, based on what I've seen, is the 'swarm' chain thing. It should not be possible to get out of that; This game should be about core survival, a guy managing to fight his way out of a horde of twelve zombies chain grappling him is not what I would expect and would frankly make me reckless. Not the thing I frankly would want in the game.
I'm pretty sure if they'd been given more time, this would have been an excellent game; but Activison no doubt wanted it out before the end of Series 3, to cash-in on the hype. Thus, they have prematurely killed what could have in all-rights been a great franchise.

Even though I knew this game wasn't gonna be great, I was still looking forward to it since I'm a TWD nut. After playing it, it's good in spurts as it gets repetitive pretty quick. You can see just how rushed the game is, but I feel like with more dev time there are some things here that could have panned out a lot better. I mean hell the game was announced when? March/April 2012? We all knew it was gonna be a cash in, but as it stands, this game will give me my zombie killing fix until Riptide comes out. As far as State of Decay goes, oh my, I can't wait for that one.
