    There’s a lot to juggle in The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, but it’s not a bad thing since each feature adds a layer of survivalism and immersion. Though certain weapons are uncomfortable, and there’s that NPC audio issue, it’s likely due to being the first available build of the game. The lack of physical crouching is irritating, but the combat, climbing, stealth, and RPG mechanics make up for it, putting you in near-complete control of the character. Every suspenseful moment is an addiction, and it’s an incredible experience all neatly packaged for you to slowly unwrap.

    The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is an excellent VR game that stands out from a lot of what the medium tends to be associated with. The weight of the combat combined with the constant worry that the undead and the living both bring combine for an incredibly gratifying experience. Throw in crafting, the solid writing and meaningful quests and you've got a pretty special game on your hands. This is definitely worth a look if you can stomach more zombies. I mean, kill them, don't eat them.

    From the very beginning, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners offers a satisfying zombie experience that’s hard to match. Titles like Arizona Sunshine easily fill that need for straight-up arcade action, for when you want a living dead apocalypse with a bit more depth then The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is your new go-to videogame. With a good 15+ hours of content depending on how slow and methodical you are, the atmosphere and superb physics make a nice cohesive whole.

    Though flawed in areas and certainly a victim of the limitations endemic to virtual reality, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is an admirable attempt at maturing the medium and modernizing an all-too-stagnant gaming space. It’s a warts-and-all sort of experience which, at the moment, can only really be appreciated by VR veterans, but, even for casual players, Saints & Sinners is a worthwhile undertaking which stands head-and-shoulders above the complacent competition.

    Saints & Sinners does not take advantage of the official license of The Walking Dead in a particularly brilliant way, leaving the connections with Kirkmann's work or its adaptations substantially implicit, and therefore presents itself as a survival set in a world so fascinating, but also very generic.

    Technical issues aside, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is generally a good time and one of the better VR horror games on the market. The level of interactivity alone makes it a game that many VR enthusiasts will want to check out, though expect to be frustrated by the poorly-implemented stealth mechanics and human combat encounters.

I've been watchingFirst of all I'm horrible with horror games, but somehow I can play this, even though it's in VR and really well done. I've been watching videos of this game for months and hyping myself up for the launch (dangerous, I know), yet the game lives up to my hype and exceeds it. Best game made so far for virtual reality in my opinion. Liked this way more than AW. All the mechanics are so well done and intricate. You really feel like your trying to survive the apocalypse, with limited resources and weapons breaking. Zombies are terrifying when your indoors and clearing the rooms one by one. Zombies outside don't give me much issues as I feel like I can see everyone, but the feeling that any time you're indoor a zombie can pounce you is terrifying, yet something keeps me soldiering on and checking all the rooms until my backback is full, after that I bolt fast. You can't take too long either since the bell will start to ring after while and hordes of zombies will arrive. Love this game! Definitely worth the purchase and the developers deserve all the support. Also the devs confirmed that it will be a cross-buy for the quest, which is bloody awesome! Haven't even finished the game and I'm already longing for a DLC! Keep up the good work! Expand

    Hello. I would like to express that I am playing the game and and that I am really disappointed and nervous.

    First of all, the game has nothing to do with promotional videos. This is a scam that really frustrates and makes people feel angry and deceived! Technical critics are already many. You read from them.

    We will talk about something else and more serious. When he was at the beginning of the game, a little bit advanced and a zombie attack happened while he had just acquired the knife and gun. I didn't know what happened, my knife broke and fell to the ground. I couldn't get it again and I couldn't find it!

    Not only that. With one bullet left, I fired and finished. I immediately tried to fill the bullet. But what a cure! It is as if this treacherous game that does not want you to die and progress is filling the bullets one by one, it bursts the bullet of the six guns! I filled a bullet, and while I was running away and trying to fill more bullets, I was running out of energy and I stopped officially! Sure zombies stop! How many are coming at once. I couldn't fill the bullet, I couldn't get the gun I got from the ground because of the attack, and I died helplessly.

    But the strangeness is here, when I start the game again, I had neither a knife nor a gun! I said, "Is this going to happen? Let me take it from where I dropped it." This time I could not find anywhere. It turns out that you went to a backpack icon next to where you died and got your supplies from there! Of course, if you don't die until you get there! Anyway, we went around. But there was only a knife in it. There was no weapon again. And we're dead again!

    This is not how it goes and this game is not played like this, we downloaded the trainer from the internet. With unlimited life and ammo, we could supposedly play and enjoy the game comfortably. But what wander! We never got a gun again! Neither explodes, nor shotgun. There are none of them, but believe me, for 2-3 hours, he brought me the ammunition of different weapons! In the meantime, broken, broken weapons and shotguns appear as you make fun of it! I even said to kill a person who has a gun in two times and get his gun. I saw that the weapon that fell on the ground after the man died was deliberately broken by the game and I was crazy!

    No story, no intermediate videos, or no intermediate videos! I do not know where the video in this promotional video is animated and which makes you think that the game has great adventure and visuality. I don't think it's somewhere in the game!

    In-game visuals and gameplay are really troublesome and gameplay, as we mentioned above, is very dire as we have not seen in any game. I came somewhere and now I had to stop. I got tired of getting killed with the spoons and screwdrivers I found the zombies, and the iron I found later. Because you have no other purpose and story! Ha, do not take things like bricks and iron candle holders around you for nothing. They're not doing anything when you throw them and hit them in the head. Oh, they're causing you to die!

    I really stepped out of the game with the feeling of being seriously angry and deceived, and I could not take my speed and see it at work, I wrote them to inform everyone.

    I would never have gone this far without the trainer. Maybe I couldn't move on but I would be upset that there were beautiful scenes ahead! But thanks to the trainer, I saw that there was nothing other than killing stupid zombies in empty spaces, after advancing 7 episodes in the game. And they called it an enormous 15-hour game! It takes up 40 GB of space! I am really unable to explain this. If you play 15 hours, write it, let's find out!
    But 2-3 hours of pointless disgrace and effort were enough. FYI .. Don't worry about looking at the promotional videos of this game and buying your money. I would say 60 lira on Steam and free for $ 40 on Oculus and almost buy it. I learned that this game is paying you! Therefore, stay away from buying. It is not like my frustration because yours!
