The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

25 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Hoping for a Walking Dead game as phenomenal as Telltale’s episodic series ? Sorry — this one’s not even close, despite some good ideas that could have made for a great game. Based on the AMC TV show instead of Robert Kirkman’s comic book , Survival Instinct casts you as redneck samurai Daryl Dixon, and takes place way back when group leader Rick was comatose in the hospital. Your goal is simple: destroy or avoid the undead as you search for a safe haven.
  • Pros: + Interesting concept merges first-person action with resource management.
  • Cons: ? Will the showrunners eventually un-canonize what little story it has, à la

  • Excerpt: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will take players on a journey of survival as the character Daryl Dixon and must do whatever it takes to survive. The first-person title is based off the award-winning television show The Walking Dead and will give you more insight into what it is really like during the Apocalypse.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Review

2 April 2013
  • Conclusion: One last anecdote will illustrate how forgettable Survival Instinct is, a sad product to be carrying the official IP tag. Whenever you run out of fuel or a battery goes flat (the latter seems to be a random event but the former is avoidable to a certain extent by collecting fuel canisters in levels), you stop on the road and a mini level loads, in which you must find fuel or a randomly placed part.
  • Pros: The structure of moving between levels and choosing your route is interesting, When you do have ammo, it’s satisfying to explode heads
  • Cons: Characters are bland and have zero reactions to anything, Melee combat becomes a massive chore, Non-existent textures on most things, and when they do exist they’re awful, Level design feels like it was planned with cardboard boxes, and that’s it., There is nothing remotely interesting or enjoyable beyond the first hour

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

29 December 2013
  • Excerpt: <p> Wenn eine Marke aktuell &uuml;ber alle Medien hinweg gro&szlig; abr&auml;umt, dann ist das definitiv The Walking Dead. Nach den originalen Comics wurde auch die zugeh&ouml;rige Fernsehserie zum gro&szlig;en Hit und die

Expert Review

7 April 2013
  • Summary: Det hele fremstår utilgivelig tannløst og har ingenting til felles med serien med samme navn. Survival Instinct er ribbet for intensiteten som har preget TV-serien og benksatt fans foran tittekassa i flere sesonger.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

3 April 2013
  • Summary: Nach dem Hit von Telltale Games versucht nun auch Activision mit einem neuen Titel in die selbe erfolgsversprechende Lizenzkerbe zu schlagen und bringt mit The Walking Dead – Survival Instinct einen Ego-Shooter auf den Markt. Doch stellte sich vielen Fans dieses Universums bereits im Vornhinein die Frage, ob die Reihe noch ein weiteres Spiel benötigt, so kurz nach dem Ende des Abenteuer rund um Lee und die kleine Clementine.
  • Pros: Überlegenheit größerer Zombiegruppen, Stealth-Mechaniken, Original Sprecher
  • Cons: Veraltete grafische Darstellung, Blasse, uninteressante Charaktere ohne Tiefgang, Immer gleiches Missionsdesign, Verschenktes Potenzial beim Gruppen- und Ressourcenmanagement, Unlogisch Zombie-Spawns, Roboterhafte Charakteranimationen

The Walking Dead Survival Instinct - Recensione

Everyeye Network
29 March 2013
  • Summary: Una delusione. Questa è l’immagine di The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct dopo le otto ore di gioco necessarie a completarlo. Se le premesse potevano essere indicative, i primi istanti di gioco ci fanno chiaramente intuire quanto di buono poteva fare questa produzione se solo vi si fosse investito più tempo e denaro.

Test : The Walking Dead - Survival Instinct

28 March 2013
  • Summary: C'était trop beau. Après une adaptation télévisuelle réussie et un jeu signé Telltale Games qui fera date, il fallait bien que la licence The Walking Dead connaisse son premier raté. Un défi relevé ici par Terminal Reality et Activision, non sans un certain panache, tant The Walking Dead : Survival Instinct fait pâle figure en comparaison de l'oeuvre originale.
  • Pros: Les voix de Norman Reedus et Michael Rooker
  • Cons: Visuellement odieux, Gameplay à la ramasse, Les QTE de la honte, Durée de vie faiblarde, Chiant à mourir, L'I.A en roue libre, 60 euros pour ça, de qui se moque-t-on ?
