It'llThis is far from being the best zombie game out there for PS3. The "Survival It-Stinks" response from many critics is not unfounded. It'll break it down into pros and cons.
+The zombies are loyal to the TV show. There's no Bullies or Spitters or whatever kind of roided up zombies are in other games these days.
+The idea of choosing various paths looks good on paper, yet barely competently pulled off in the game.
+The game discourages you from firing guns since using them only draws more walkers to you.
+Norman Reedus and Michale Rooker reprise their roles from the TV series.
-Things get repetitious very quickly. By the third hour of playing this game, you'll be less than motivated to keep playing.
-No incentive to kill zombies, due to no pick-ups from killing zombies nor any kind of leveling up system.
-The grapple system when zombies are in your face is shaky, sucking at your health in no time or you end up being stuck in a conga line of zombies one after another grappling you.
-The environments of the road levels frequently repeat. One instance had me stopping two times for two different items, yet it took place at the same diner area.
-Little variety in the weapons and distraction items don't work as well as they should.
-The graphics are PS2 quality, as if the game was in development back in the early 2000's.
-The ending is one of the stupidest endings I've ever seen save yourself the trouble and watch it on Youtube.
-$60 is a ridiculous price for a game that you can beat in less than seven hours, as well as no replay value.
If you have a FPS zombie-killing fix you need to satiate, go with anyone of the following games: Dead Island, Left 4 Dead, or Zombie Island of Dr. Ned for Borderlands.
For a better story, go with Telltale's Walking Dead game.
If you feel the needs to be a zombie game completest, wait for this title to drop to 20 bucks which is what it should've sold for in the first place.… Expand
