The Walking Dead Demo Review
There’s no doubt that I’m a big fan of all things zombie. Despite the cup runneth over state of zombie touched games in the last few years, I’m always looking for something with a bit of a twist on the genre. I think this game might be it.
In the spirit of Alan Wake, The Walking Dead decides to go with an episodic adventure where your quest is separated into episodes (which seem to be steadily released and paid for like an actual TV show…brilliant) that you complete over time. If the first demo episode is any indication, we’re in for a fun ride.
In this take on TWD lore, you play a man who wakes up in the backyard of a house trying to figure out what going on in this new zombie filled world. Interestingly enough, your actions are controlled by using the right stick as your viewfinder with button presses appearing in a HUD as people, items, and enemies are targeted.This is both fun and builds a bit of tension especially when it comes to zombie fights.
Based on the demo, I’d definitely recommend The Walking Dead to at least try, but I’m ready to shell out my hard earned dollars to keep playing through episode one.
