The Walking Dead Game: Worth Buying?
The Walking Dead is a popular AMC TV show set in Atlanta, Georgia during a zombie apocalypse. People are absolutely crazy about this show, so much so, that they decided to release a game for both the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace and Playstation 3 Network. The game itself is released in ‘episodes’ and differs from the story we know and love on our televisions. It leads up to the story of sheriff Rick Grimes, and you may just run into a few familiar faces. I myself have not yet purchased the game, however I’ve played the demo and would agree with others when they say it’s game-play is similar to that of old-school Resident Evil games. Without having explored more game content I can’t say whether this is for everyone, but any true fan of the series will say it’s totally worth a shot!
If you haven’t seen the popular ‘beginning game-play’ video on YouTube which has been out for ages, feel free to follow this Link and watch.
As you can see you start out as a convict being transferred to a local prison who gains a new lease on life in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Each decision you make in this game, whether it’s to open something, listen to something, or choose what you say to another character decides your overall fate making the game more personal and in my opinion more enjoyable.
If you haven’t tried to demo, I recommend you do so. Have you played the demo already, or have you purchased the game? What are your personal opinions? Let us know in the comments below!
