OVERKILL's The Walking Dead
The game manages to facilitate some really involving moments, even if it doesn’t necessarily provide them.
A gorgeous looking co-op zombie shooter that's plagued with a horde of technical issues and diseased-ridden AI, Overkill's The Walking isn't a terrible game but compared to more polished cooperative shooters, it just comes up short in so many ways.
I enjoyed Overkill’s The Walking Dead but perhaps more as a concept. Playing with a friend makes the experience much more enjoyable; however, the price point is a concern given all the issues I had with the game. To this day, it doesn’t feel complete.
Overkill's The Walking Dead is an ambitious online multiplayer experience. It nails the aesthetic of The Walking Dead universe. However, it struggles in almost every other department. Bugs and game-halting instances have been very apparent in the near 20 hours spent with it.
Overkill's The Walking Dead is deeply flawed and bland. Its gameplay feels generic, sometimes bringing out anomalous and umpleasant situations.

Clearly the game gives a "unfinished" feeling. OVERKILL'S The Walking have good ideas like horde system, customisation and skills for character et post-apocalyptic atmosphere in level design. Sadly, Artificial Intelligence is catastrophic, the game is repetitive and loading times are disastrous.

Overkill's The Walking Dead is pretty, but doesn't do anything that we haven't seen before in a number of other post-apocalyptic first- or third-person games.
Arguably the biggest flaw with Overkill's The Walking Dead is just how generic and bland it feels. With a popular brand like The Walking Dead, you'd expect there to be a bit more flair or pizazz when it comes to world-building and characterization, but there's nothing like that here.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead certainly stokes the player’s despair, but not the sort that its developers intended.
First impressions can often leave you feeling like it's a slow, groggy mess with too much to manage and too many tough survivors working against you. But once you get deep enough into the game, only then does it start to feel more enjoyable, which sadly isn't how it should be.
