Unhappy

I am a HUGE zombie fan and therefore Walking Dead. I was super jazzed for this game to come out, but after reading through this thread and seeing some reviews I am definitely not going to buy it, but am going to CONSIDER renting it.
I couldn't give a rats ass about graphics, it all lives and dies with gameplay for me. The review I am linking lays it out pretty clear that gameplay is a joke in this.

Same here. If it's Walking Dead, I'll love it. The reason I don't care for TellTale's game much is because it doesn't have a whole lot to do with the show. I know that's a dumb reason, but then again I only played the first free episode. I will get the full thing at some point.

In all honesty it was a good addition to the series, even saw Glenn for part of it. Was following the comic so it's all good in my eyes.. I was hooked since the first episode and I'm happy to say that it ended oh so brilliantly, deffo in Walking Dead style.

To be fair though, the TellTale game is in the comic's canon. Not the show. I would give it a shot though, the episodes just get better.

Amen to that. The game is hella boring with horrible graphics and weak gameplay. Makes having to go through it twice a chore and them some. God forbid if you miss something in a town or a survivor forcing you to go through it again ... ugh. I'm sorry but there are no excuses for having horrible graphics 6 years later into the console's life. AMC has plenty of money to spend on this game and there was no reason to give this to college students to make.

Bottom line, I love the Walking Dead but if the gameplay and graphics aren't there, then there should be some story to make up for it ... oh wait, that wasn't included either.

/wrists on this game. Bring on Bioshock

Why do people keep defending the lazy developers? It's 2013 and this looks like ps2 graphics. Yeah, graphics aren't everything but they do make the game experience more satisfying and with it being 2013, they should be putting the technology to good use. Why are they drip feeding us these games when we all know what games can look like?

Condemned for Xbox 360 was released in 2005, TWD:SI, released in 2013. 8 YEARS LATER, NO IMPROVEMENT IN GRAPHICS, ARGUABLY A STEP DOWN. Back in 2005 I used to think what games would look like in 10 years time and if you shown me this game, I'd burst out laughing.

These people who think this looks good are the ones that ruin games by always paying for these mediocre products and then defend them. Once developers realize they don't have to try anymore and can still make a profit...they will. Some good example in relation to this are this game, Aliens:CM, the COD games , etc. Shame

Couldn't agree more........though kinda wishing I hadn't pre-ordered this game now and waited for it to drop in price a bit.

Yes but it's worse when the game has issues beyond average texture quality.

Nothing to do with "lazy developers", activision gave the developers a very short time to make this game (less than a year) when games like this take 18 months upwards.

The game is nothing but a cheap cash grab from the publishers using the success of Telltale's game and using the show's name

The game is equivalent of shitting into a bag then selling it

Love the show, figured I could push past how bad this game is and continue to play it. I can't. It's going back to gamefly lol. Worst game I've played this year so far.

I'm looking forward to a few passive aggressive rants with this game myself. I've watched so much gameplay that I already feel like the horribleness of it has grown on me. Well I'll find out in a few days if I can brow furrow my way through it or not. Hah.

Hmmm if the developers were pushing for a release date around now... maybe, just maybe, one of the brothers doesn't survive season 3/start of 4?

OT: The graphics remind me of Prison Break: The Game, a show that I loved just as much as TWD... and that sucked. I'll still try it, but when it's cheaper.

update: I'm half way through act 2 and I don't see what all the fuss is about. These graphics aren't so bad, and the game is actually fun. So, yeah you should really play it for yourself before you dog this game out. Just an opinion.

I was expecting the worst, but as a big Walking Dead I went ahead and got it anyway, with the thinking it would tide me over until Bioshock Infinite or Defiance and then I would trade it in, but I must say what I've played so far I am having quite a bit of fun with. Obviously it has flaws for a rushed game, I'm looking at it as if it's an older title, sure they are rough round the edges but you can still enjoy elements of them. So I'm glad I've bought it.

Its not just the zombie 3d models are poor or the textures, it plays like crap as well, the melee and the combat is shit.

The basic concept of the game is really good in theory but it needed more time in development.


activision are fucking idiots, a well made FPS TWD game would sell well but publishers like them (and EA) ONLY think short term gain


If fans of the show really want to play it, rent it or buy it used

assassin's creed 1 level of repetitiveness... minus the story that keptme interested. What a scrap heap of crap just to make a dollar. Made correctly, this game could have been worth it. It's not like the show is going to be cancelled anytime soon. Sad.

True, I mean you can even see a cursor at points during the fucking intro cinematic, if that doesn't tell you it's garbage. You have a naive view.





To anyone on the fence, please watch this video for GOTY gameplay.
