Log investigates Terminal Reality's misjudged first-person adventure

For a while, Survival Instinct was described as "The Walking Dead FPS". That was a poisonous misnomer, and one that led to instant mistrust. A first-person shooter? Haven't they read the comics or watched the TV show? Shooting a gun is a last-ditch act of desperation. You want to spear those lurching sods in the eyehole with a nice quiet bit of pipe.... read more

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct - FPS? Less of the S, if

The Walking Dead is screaming for a Condemned-style melee based survival horror. But no, they hastily cobble together a half-arsed FPS instead. At least we got the wonderful point-and-click TellTale series...

From what I've seen it looks disappointing. It's a shame really as the source material's solid.

personal opinion, but the game looks horrible, looks like a typical rushed Activision game, if you want a zombie apocalypse survival game, just wait for State Of Decay.

Really want this game to be good, but its looking more like a cash in every time I see it. I'll get it from the bargain bin when i'v given State of Decay a jolly good seeing to, figuratively speaking.

This looks a little bit... lethargic.
Still, let's give it the benefit of the doubt.

Ive been reading early user reviews online and there all saying its a good game.The point is gears is out the same day so its going to suffer which is a shame if it is as good as they say.The only thing ime wary of is the how long its going to be,if the game is short with no replay value then i wont be buying it,might pick it up when its quite during the summer months.The vibes are positive which is surprising as it looked rubbish not long ago.
