There are flashes of promise in this first-person shooter, but this is a mostly uninspired, unpolished waste of an opportunity.

The Walking Dead gets the zombies and the theme just right, but everything else is a mess.

Co-op zombie-splattering will never be devoid of fun, but Overkill's The Walking Dead is lacking in both the series' storytelling and technical polish.

It channels the grit and desperation of the TV show well enough, but the prolonged development has ended in a co-op shooter that feels outdated and unexceptional.

A deep progression system isn't enough to save these survivors from repetitive and poorly balanced missions

Overkill's The Walking Dead is a collection of poorly conceived ideas and uninspired gameplay, neither of which help its lifeless narrative and repetitive missions.

Overkill's The Walking Dead could have been something special, but it finds itself dragged down by poorly implemented and designed systems. There's flashes of what could have been, and there's a chance that Starbreeze will turn this game around in the coming months to rebuild from a poor launch, but as it stands I couldn't even recommend this game to the most hardcore of The Walking Dead fans.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is a complete disaster, a game that doesn't work from any perspective. Its narrative is terrible, its progression system is pointless and its gameplay is repetitive.

The zombies are slow, clumsy, repeated and simpletons. These adjectives are also valid for this game of the The Walking Dead universe, in charge of the creators of Payday, a definitely better game. You can expect updates and improvements in this first person shooter.

Although an improvement over The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, this new game feels unoriginal and non particularly engaging.
