I thought it would be a pretty dull, poorly made by the numbers shooter but it is actually quite a decent by the numbers shooter. Nothing really stands out as being great but the mechanics are all pretty decent, graphics are decent and the action is fast paced. The voice acting is pretty bad but that isn't really the focus here. Worth a shot if you like third person shooters as this can be picked up quite cheap now.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.8Apr 1, 2013I'm not a fan of the Walking Dead TV series but picked this up due to the good reviews plus it was only $20NZD. Great value at that price asI'm not a fan of the Walking Dead TV series but picked this up due to the good reviews plus it was only $20NZD. Great value at that price as this was an enjoyable experience. And I mean experience as this is more an interactive movie. The story is interesting and the characters are reasonably well done for the most part.
The reason I didn't give this a higher score was your decision making in the game didn't seem to have a massive effect on the storyline. It just seemed to change who survived and who didn't. Where if you compare it to a similar game like Heavy Rain, some decisions in that totally change the direction the game heads in.
Still, this was enjoyable and well worth playing as it is very cheap and is an easy platinum for the trophy whores out there.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Apr 1, 2013I was a bit sceptical heading into this game as the last couple of games haven't been that great but I always hold out hope as the first 3I was a bit sceptical heading into this game as the last couple of games haven't been that great but I always hold out hope as the first 3 games on the PS1 are some of my all time favourites. Thankfully this is a spectacular return to form for the series. It borrows heavily from certain games in this generation such as most obviously Uncharted but also stealth based games such as Assassins Creed. This isn't a bad thing as it has added a new dimension to the game and it is implemented very well here.
Lara's character is developed quite well, if a bit rushed. The game has a great atmosphere about it and you really feel concerned for Lara due to the constant storms happening. She really does seem to be struggling to survive.
The one criticism I would have is it is very linear. I would have liked to have had bigger areas to explore with multiple pathways. A lot of areas do have two or three ways to progress but they are very close together and don't require much exploration to find.
This game is a massive step in the right direction and I am now eagerly awaiting the follow up. Well done.
TL:DR great return to form. Good action, great story telling and character development. Excellent graphics and atmosphere.… Expand
