There’s no rest when survival is on the line. Step into AMC’s The Walking Dead and prepare for an onslaught of walkers as you assume the roles of your favorite characters from the show, and confront the horrors and humanity of this apocalyptic new world. RECLAIM YOUR HUMANITY The war with the Saviors has finally come to an end, but the damage lingers in the hearts of those who survived it. It will take risk and sacrifice to mend this broken society and rebuild what remains of Alexandria for future generations. Are prepared to do your part? STEP INTO AMC’S THE WALKING DEAD Play as Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and Carol and set up your home base in the Alexandria Safe Zone. Here, you’ll play through chapters of an all-new story, embark on Scavenger runs, upgrade your player stats, modify and customize weapons, trade in resources to grow your community, and interact with your favorite characters. Successfully complete supply runs, and you’ll see Alexandria transform as you rebuild the settlement into a fortified bastion of hope for humanity’s future. ULTIMATE COMBAT FREEDOM Stave off the walker threat wielding 24 ranged and melee weapons—including iconic pieces from the show— with realistic handling and intuitive VR motion mechanics. Experience the visceral Progressive Dismemberment system that realistically depicts your every attack against the undead. Discover a variety of modifications for each weapon to fine-tune and suit your combat style. FAST-ACTION SURVIVAL Leave nothing behind. Every trip beyond the walls of Alexandria means a chance to collect valuable weapons, food, materials, and other resources for the community. But beware: every supply run provides unpredictable walker encounters, resource availability, and obstacles to test your sense of flight or fight. CAMPAIGN STORY Play as Daryl Dixon through an original campaign story about a supply run gone awry and an ensuing encounter with a watchful stranger in a mysterious town.

The Walking Dead: Onslaught is just fine for a zombie-themed arcade shooter. It brings a few beloved Walking Dead characters and locations into VR, but it doesn't offer much more substance than that.

Given the quality of other zombie games such as Saints and Sinners and Arizona Sunshine it's really difficult to recommend Onslaught to anyone other than hardcore The Walking Dead fans. The best parts of The Walking Dead almost always revolve around the human interactions, but the game is a grind, the story is utterly disposable and it no longer feels relevant to a TV show that is now a couple seasons ahead.

Saints and Sinners showed there was huge potential for this series in VR, which is why it's such a shame that The Walking Dead: Onslaught is a massive disappointment.

There are several issues though and its biggest one regards movement, which offers three options: teleportation, swinging the PlayStation Move controller, or a smooth option reliant on button pressing. None of them click perfectly and adding to this, character models look a bit rough. If you can get past these flaws, Onslaught is ultimately enjoyable, bringing good combat and rebuilding Alexandria is quite fun. If you’re a fan of the TV series, this is worth a look.
