Apparently, it's not just the bite that zombifies you; it's playing this game

I'm pretty much hearing all bad stuff about this game. I saw a video and just immediately thought of some worse version of Dead Island. They had so much potential here to deliver something great, but sadly not. What a shame. Those graphics as well...eesh.

Thanks for including an brief overview of the types of achievements for this game. I always want to know what the achievements are like when I'm on the fence about buying a game, but reviews that are not console specific usually don't talk about them.

Im a bit pissed off i actually pre ordered this and paid full price. I did enjoy it at the start but the multiple playthroughs to get the last few achievements was a bit tedious. Its worth renting easily 1000g in 3-4 days but not worth buying. Shame on you AMC.

That was a truly awesome review, Chewie. I love your writing style.

It is nice to know that the review is been made from playing a game purchased with the own reviewer's money.

After I realised how crappy this game is I deleted if from my game history before I got my first achievement.

Funny if you compare this game to Walking Dead Arcade game, but I guess good licensed games are just that, dimonds among pile of crap.

I actually preferred this one to the episodic arcade version, but I really didn't put much investment in either. Got the retail disc of the arcade one from Gamefly, picked this one up from the red box and got out back the 2nd day ($4).
Look at me so I can finish!

I like that reviews are now telling us how long it was played and how many achievements were earned. Useful information for us all in one way or another.

Definitely looks to be a skippable.

The fact that it is from Terminal Reality makes it skippable. I hate those guys...moreso than EA I think.

hated this game had a lot of good elements going for it but it felt way too rushed i think they had to get the game out before the end of the third season of the show which is why it was so quick but thats no excuse

Did anyone expect this to be good after they released that awful footage?

Bad game, tedious combat and achievement grinding... But totally playable. I have played a lot worse. Worth mentioning that you may have to play 3-4 times (I did!) but you can just run past virtually every single zombie to get where you need to be. My last play through took 1h25m start to finish.
I went outside once, the graphics were amazing but the characters and storyline sucked!

Great review - right on the money in my opinion (from what I have played so far). There are far, far worse games out there...

Don't buy new games... if you can wait 9 months and clean out your backlog you'll save $50.

Somehow, some managed. Some people will play any ol' shit with "zombies" in it.
