While this set up does work, Lee’s movements felt a bit off especially with the keyboard. Also limiting camera control can be cumbersome at times, especially when you’re searching for something as small as a battery or a key. The game is also quite slow in nature with a heavy emphasis on character development, just like the comics. If you’ve come to the game expecting to blast zombies with reckless abandon, you’re clearly playing the wrong zombie game.

The Walking Dead is a decent looking title and borrows the cel shaded look you’ve seen in games like Borderlands and Crackdown. This is kind of an odd art style choice for such a game because it tends to make everything look quite bright and cheerful. Although when it comes to gore, the game doesn’t hold back. You’ll see the undead tear through humans, gorging on their intestines with much gusto and Lee himself is capable of going completely mental on them with an axe or a hammer. And it isn’t pretty.
Telltale have decided to take the episodic route for The Walking Dead so instead of one eight hour game, you get five episodes spanning roughly two hours each. However each episode will offer players a significant amount of replayability as you’re forced to make certain choices throughout the game so you can always go back and chose the other option. This will change the outcome of the story as most of them include saving X or Y.
As a fan of the comics, I thoroughly enjoyed the game. Even though I never got to play as Rick Grimes or punch Lori in the face, I’m happy with the way the story’s unfolding so far. I’m guessing this game also felt a bit slow because it was the first episode setting players up for a rollercoaster ride that’s about to follow in true Kirkman style. If you enjoy the show or the comics, this is a must buy. Even if you’re new to this franchise, we suggest you give it a shot as it a refreshing change of pace from the usual brain dead bloodbath associated with the genre.
