Summary: This game is really not my style. It is more cut scenes and theatrics and less killing zombies. The story line is great, and the "choosing your own path" to the story line is fun as well. They even let you see how many other people made your same choices. It is more like a movie than a video game. If you are looking for more zombie killing then the Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a more action filled game.
Summary: I got this game cheap as a deal of the day. The game is tough . You start out as Daryl and Merles dad, then he gets mauled by zombies. You are then Daryl and are on a search and rescue type deal. this game is not 2 players, which sucks because you are Daryl and Merle. It would have been great if it were 2 players. Rent it if you can unless you can get it cheap.
Summary: I only played through the first episode and part of the second, the game just gets so choppy after you've logged a bit of play time... If there weren't issues with the lag/delay/chop, I probably would have finished this game in two or three sittings, but as it is, I haven't had the desire to start it up again since the first time.
Summary: I'm a HUGE HUGE fan of The Walking Dead series and I was REALLY holding out hope for this game, despite the negative reviews and buzz I was hearing. Unfortunately, Activision and AMC really blew it with this game. It just seems like there was no effort put into it. The graphics are pretty terrible, the movement is a bit choppy, the zombies are really not impressive at all.
Summary: We all know most of these things but this review is just to cover basics and give you an idea of what you are in for when you rent/purchase this game. Graphics: 2/5 Simply they are not up to PS3/360 standards, however they are not horrible. Gameplay: 3/5 The game gets very repetitive you are breaking down in you vehicle at the same 2-3 spots all the time or looking for supplies in the same 2 places through the entire game. Story: 1.5/5 The story....
Not very good, name recognition only true positive.

Summary: I think the graphics have been covered already, and it's not a real concern for me. First, let me state there are areas of this game that are difficult and frustrating. Not difficult in the sense that it takes some unique game playing skill or expertise, just that you have dozens of zombies on you and the 'kill' methods aren't the quickest or most precise. As another reviewer stated, this game has one true positive attribute, and that's the tie-in to the show.
