The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Reviews
Tense and thrilling with finely tuned systems, Saints & Sinners is a must-have VR experience.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners swirls survival horror and roleplaying staples together with nuance, standing as a fantastic example of what VR can be.
Despite some technical misgivings, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners honors the Walking Dead name: a rarity in the current climate. It's also cemented itself as one of the leading "full" VR experiences to date. It might not sell headsets, but it'll be a hell of a pickup for current VR-heads.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners it's a good zombi-survival experience, faithful to Robert Kirkman's work, with tons of action (or stealth) and tough moral decisions. it feels like a proper game, not a demo or an experimental title, even if it has some space to improve (human IA, environments with little interactivity, lame narrative...).

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is an excellent VR game that stands out from a lot of what the medium tends to be associated with. The weight of the combat combined with the constant worry that the undead and the living both bring combine for an incredibly gratifying experience. Throw in crafting, the solid writing and meaningful quests and you've got a pretty special game on your hands. This is definitely worth a look if you can stomach more zombies. I mean, kill them, don't eat them.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners ensures a very physical and anxiety-provoking VR experience, as well as long-lasting and demanding one. There's no mauch motion sickness, but inventory management will give you many headaches.

There's a lot to juggle in The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, but it's not a bad thing since each feature adds a layer of survivalism and immersion. Though certain weapons are uncomfortable, and there's that NPC audio issue, it's likely due to being the first available build of the game. The lack of physical crouching is irritating, but the combat, climbing, stealth, and RPG mechanics make up for it, putting you in near-complete control of the character. Every suspenseful moment is an addiction, and it's an incredible experience all neatly packaged for you to slowly unwrap.
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is generally a good time and one of the better VR horror games on the market.
It's zombie survival at its finest
If you’re hungering to take a stab at some new Saints & Sinners content, Aftershocks delivers lots of new gameplay. It doesn’t throw any crazy new ideas or new story elements at you, but it does add some enjoyable extra hours of combat-based fun to be had in post-apocalyptic New Orleans, including the chance to keep upgrading your home base with all that sweet new loot. Plus, without spoiling anything, Skydance seems to hint at more Saints & Sinners DLC to come — until then, as a free update for existing Saints & Sinners players, Aftershocks is a no-brainer.
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners' production values and atmosphere outweigh by far any videogame tropes and flaws that might weigh down the experience. This is a tough (and very scary) game, and every system in the game is built to support the idea that you are lone wolf in a very hostile world. Saints and Sinners understands its franchise, and is the scariest The Walking Dead has ever been.
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is a great game.
At the end of the day, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is a satisfying action RPG with reasonable writing, fun scenarios, and the opportunity to hit zombies with barbed wire baseball bats.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is, overall, a great VR zombie survival game. Its strengths are not constant in all aspects, even from a technical point of view, but the good challenge and the articulated structure make it a must for fans of the genre.
