The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct – Gameplay Trailer

Written by Lance Alexander

It’s Awful. So Awful.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct isn’t a game I’m looking forward too. It’s not that I don’t find the idea of a Walking Dead FPS to be interesting, but I’ve had concerns about this game from the very moment I heard it was in development. This gameplay trailer doesn’t alleviate any of my concerns, in fact despite secretly hoping it would defy my admittedly low expectations this has only served to make my opinion of this game sour more.

I’m not talking graphics or frame rate, this is apparently footage from an early alpha build after all. Simply based on the gameplay mechanics it’s showing off, I’m not impressed. It’s not showing anything innovative or interesting. It’s the same gameplay mechanics we’ve seen a million times in a million other stealth games. But since it’s being made by Terminal Reality, the same studio that brought us such games as the abomination ‘Star Wars: Kinect,’ I can’t say I’m surprised either.

My griping aside, hopefully Terminal Reality will take the massive amounts of negative criticism this video has already received on Youtube to heart. If not, each and every copy of this game should come with hand written letters of apology.
