    The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a very bad game. Ugly graphics, poor realization and boring gameplay are the main reasons of this failure. Activision and Terminal Reality throw away the possibility of making a great game based on a very appreciated license.
  2. It's amazing that it's so far from finished. We're not sure if it's the developer, the publisher or both, but someone should be ashamed of themselves. Awful.

    Anyone looking for a survival horror experience on their Wii U will definitely want to set their sights on the infinitely superior ZombiU instead.

    To start I am a huge fan of the show and only picked this game up for the story. Knowing this I had low expectations for the gameplay and graphics. I was pleasantly surprised to find the graphics to be better than I expected. It is more cartoony than realistic but not as bad as some people make them out to be. The game play is nicely rounded out. It is a mix of stealth and action. You can take the zombies head on are sneak up behind them and use a finish on them. The game relies on the player finding fuel and food to keep them going on there road trip to Atlanta. Along the way you find survivors who you can find items for and get them to join your group. For fans of the TV series this is a must play to learn more about the Dixon brothers and for anyone who is not a fan of the tv show there is still plenty to like about this game. Overall 8/10

    Surprisingly, I had a lot of fun with this game. It plays like an old school FPS, you can have more than four weapons, I hate it when you only get 2 to 4 weapons max. You drink energy drinks to heal which are similar to health packs. There are lots of enemies to fight. The gore effects on the enemies are awesome as well. The levels can be played any way you like; this game has freedom, unlike most FPS today which are super linear. This game also encourages multiply play throughs by having different paths to take in the story mode and relics. I had more fun playing The Walking Dead Survival Instinct than I did ZombiU, which was really boring. If you enjoy killing zombies and having fun go buy this game now. Full Review »
