    It's fun when you cooperate with friends and get out of the crowd of zombies by sneaky ways. But due to the dull shooting experience and repeated puzzles, it hardly ever satisfies me.

    Although an improvement over The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, this new game feels unoriginal and not particularly engaging.

    Arguably the biggest flaw with Overkill’s The Walking Dead is just how generic and bland it feels.

    The best loot-driven games rely on a great progression to spur you on, to get you so excited that you don’t mind replaying the same old levels. “Overkill’s The Walking Dead” seems to expect that, once you’ve started playing and leveling up a character, you simply won’t be able to stop. There are plenty of games, even time sinks, that will treat you better.

    Overkill’s The Walking Dead is nothing but a random zombie shooter.

    Imagine reaching the final minutes of an hour-long mission only for your connection to drop and, in turn, your progress to be lost. Overkill’s The Walking Dead certainly stokes the player’s despair, but not the sort that its developers intended.

I've played the game for a while now and it is really great, mostly because it's a real challenge. Playing with friends is a real blast once you get the hang of it. Expand

ThisI was a bit sceptical at first, both pre launch and during the first map. But after that, I was really impressed how great this game is. This is a challenging and realistic game that is perfect together with a couple of friends. We had tons of both tension and laughter during our first session playing. Expand

    This game does not deserve bad reviews just because in E3 they showed a video gameplay where graphically it did not shine as it is reallyThis game does not deserve bad reviews just because in E3 they showed a video gameplay where graphically it did not shine as it is really shining today. This game with a good PC looks spectacular, it is very fluid and its gameplay is perfect. It has a difficulty that is already quite extreme in normal mode, we do not want to imagine how it will be in higher difficulties. You have game for a long time, it takes a lot of farming to get a character with a lot of level and keep the camp in good condition. The IA ​​works very well too. The game is addictive but I recognize that it is not for everyone. You have to have a lot of patience, and it is advisable to play with friends. It deserves an opportunity because as I said before, it can not be that they want to sink a game just for some videos seen long ago. Expand

    Very hard game from the start which is nice for a change. Seems grindy at times doing easier levels over and over to get higher levels just soVery hard game from the start which is nice for a change. Seems grindy at times doing easier levels over and over to get higher levels just so you can survive a little longer in harder maps. Not recommended for a single player game, you need "smart" friends to work together. No room for a lone wolf player in this game.

    Graphics are great. Made by Payday 2 guys and it shows. Very polished.

    When will idiots grow up and stop rating things either a 10 or a 0? It's like their moronic reactionary minds cannot comprehendWhen will idiots grow up and stop rating things either a 10 or a 0? It's like their moronic reactionary minds cannot comprehend multi-elements. It's all 70 I.Q. mouth breathers in their simplistic minds going, "GRRRR! GAME ME NO LIKE! GRRRRRR!" or "TEE HEE! ME LIKEY!!!! (clap, clap, clap)" . Morons.

    Anyways, now that the rant is over I will tell you why I have no interest in playing this game after playing it for a few hours. Its main problem is that there is no variation in the action. It would have done this game some good to include some very needed cathartic zombie slaughter fest ala Left 4 Dead style. Graphically it looks decent but they should have also not made it mandatory co-op which let's face it, the only way to have a decent amount of fun is playing it with other people. A single player variation is badly needed. It doesn't look like there is much of a story to it either. Overall the game is just OK and maybe there is hope for it yet.

    https://youtu.be/vX_DeNZoLxM?t=12 The game has very long and frequent loading times between sessions, tons of connection issues, 2006 graphicshttps://youtu.be/vX_DeNZoLxM?t=12 The game has very long and frequent loading times between sessions, tons of connection issues, 2006 graphics with it's full share of performance issues, even playing on the best hardware and the griefers seem to have free reign online. Also the matchmaking is a joke and seemingly teams you up with casual players who don't have a clue how to play the game and just run around wrecking it for everyone instead of it being ranked and skill based and to add insult to injury, there's no VOIP, which means you can't play this game seriously, but then again it's to be expected by the likes of Starbreeze knowing their track record (dlc milking, raid, delays, hype, cgi-trailers, etc.) in other words this is yet another low effort cash grab by a company riding on the train of a successful franchise and how they dare to ask $60 ($80 for deluxe) for this garbage is beyond me, get it together guys, there are better games out there for half the price and games that actually deserves $60 such as Red Dead Redemption 2.
