The walking dead is a zombie survival game developed by Telltale games based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman. The game is based on new characters than the comic books but aims to bring the same comic styled world into action.
This game is also for the iOS so here i am writing a review from my iphone (:
Graphics: awesome, though it lags a bit on my iPhone 4
Story: involving, interesting, genious though its a bit frustrating that changing your actions will end up mostly the same thing, for instance, if you save Doug, hell say the same things as if you saved Carly. Should come up with different endings, would make this game even more addicting, and should, at least, boost its lifetime, because we would play to see "what would have happened if i had chosen the other option?"
Gameplay: stuck. Lets be honest here, everybody likes freedom. I would like to check more options instead of straight forward to my goal. For instance, when you can move in this game, theres an invisible wall to limit your movement, meaning that you cant explore the entire environment, because you have to follow a straigh line! Meaning this story is linear, confirming what i said before. I think we should get more options on the gameplay
Bugs/glitches: the most annoying i found, was one that, if the cutscene ended, and just before the game allow you to move, you clicked something, it would be like youre holding your finger on the screen, meaning that you cant click that button unless you die, or exit the game. Had to restart Carly/Doug rescue scene 4 times because of this annoying glitch, because they died.
Suggestions: different endings would just be more than enough. We should have more options when interacting with the environment. Ill take the car accident scene, where you kill the zombie cop, as an example. When you click the cop, the only option that comes up, is to take the keys, but what about like, "Kick", "Shake" (could be generalized options, like theyll always be there) "Give Item", "Talk To", "Look At" "Search"...that could change a lot in gameplay, story and everything. We could find more items to use in the environment, weapons, food, etc. We should be able to move the camera completely too.
First of all I wasn’t too fond of the game being released in episodes, but I guess the goal was the suspense, so thats understandable.
This game has very good characters, and a very good story.
The gameplay consists mostly of conversation options and quick time events.
Now the game constantly reminds me that my options change the story or the outcome of the game…unfortunately…it doesn’t.
And that’s what I don’t like about this game.
My choices don’t change much. The story goes where the developers say the story goes regardless of your choices.
If they say you are gonna miss, you’re gonna miss.
If they say this person is gonna die then this person is gonna die. Etc.
I didn’t feel in control.
