    Mirroring the style of the graphic novels and utilizing the actual characters in a fun way, The Walking Dead: Assault is a competent, fun addition to the genre and an obvious purchase for fans of the series.

    Even if you haven't been bitten by The Walking Dead phenomenon yet (horrible pun fully intended), if you like strategy games, you're going to want to give this one some of your time.

    It is basically an action game from a third person perspective, but it adds survival and strategy to make it a deeper experience. The customization options and the possibilities to recruit survivors make it even more recommendable.

    Taken as a whole, The Walking Dead: Assault provides a welcome change of pace from the usual first and third person zombie shooters, with smartly designed squad-based mechanics. With more chapters due for release in the coming months, it's a game worth hanging on to, especially if you love the comics and/or TV show.

    The Walking Dead: Assault delivers an interesting, challenging RTS experience. Every character comes with unique abilities, and that's nice, but the controls tend to be too slow and unresponsive when it comes to survive.

    It's obvious Skybound and Gamagio put a lot of thought and care into making Assault a true tactical zombie experience. The action is a little too repetitive and simplistic and the In-App Purchase upsell is too aggressive, but this is still a fun alternative take on the evocative Walking Dead universe.

    It might not do much with the famous franchise, but The Walking Dead: Assault still manages to offer some enjoyably tense, if simplistic, shoot-and-loot action.
