Overkill’s The Walking Dead is often faithful to the series in all the worst ways.

Thanks god at least it's 30$ which still doesn't worth it. I sincerely advice you to not buy OVERKILL's The Walking Dead, there is nothing to enjoy even for die hard fans of The Walking Dead.

While the game can be fun at times, Overkill's The Walking Dead is bogged down by technical issues, repetitive side content, and the inability to have fun while playing solo.

I really wanted to like this game, and after the beta I was hoping there would be more to it than what they were testing. Unfortunately, there's not, and there's absolutely no way I could recommend buying this game. If you could pick it up for £10, sure, but four times that? No way.

Overkill's The Walking Dead fails to deliver a compelling and entertaining co op experience based around a zombie apocalypse, it also suffers a lot from technical issues. it has so many flaws that even massive updates can't solve them anytime soon.

OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a fun, chaotic take on the team-based horde and exploration genre made popular by Left 4 Dead. Sure, the lack of voice chat in-game is crippling within this genre, with the only substitute being to use Steam Chat or a third-party method – making this as cumbersome as the Nintendo Switch voice-chat options! However, there is nothing more satisfying than mindlessly slaughtering waves of zombies with a bunch of friends! I’m not much of a multiplayer gamer but if I have to play one, I much prefer cooperative ones to pvp. If you enjoy this type of game it’s worth picking up, if only to let some frustration out at the end of the day by beheading walkers with your machete.

Overkill's The Walking Dead fortunately isn't the second coming of TWD: Survival Instinct, but in its current form, it's miles away from being a high-quality cooperative action nonetheless.

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 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.
