The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a first person perspective shooter based on The Walking Dead TV series. Unfortunately, it cannot be praised as much as the well-known adventure game based on the same license. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, a prequel to the TV series, begins soon after the zombie outbreak. It lets us follow the story of Dixon brothers who are traveling to Atlanta, supposedly a safe shelter for the remaining survivors. Unfortunately, the game’s plot lacks depth, interesting characters and emotions. The story has nothing in it that could get the series’ aficionados. We control Daryl, the character beloved by The Walking Dead fans.
His older brother, Merle, is controlled by artificial intelligence. While we play, we can choose whether we want to engage into direct encounters with the walkers or try to sneak past them. We need to be very careful: shooting can attract a whole horde to come for us. We constantly need to be aware of how much ammo, food and fuel we have as under the circumstances finding supplies is difficult.
During his journey, Daryl will come across many survivors. He will have to decide whether he should help them out or leave them with nothing. If he does accept them into the group, they will have to be taken into account when the supplies are being given out. As he travels, he can use either the highway or smaller roads, with each choice having its advantages and disadvantages like the possibility of a breakdown. The route we choose affects the places we will visit and the characters we will meet. Daryl’s vehicle can also be changed. When he runs out of fuel, he has to scavenge for it or he won’t be able to advance. Unfortunately, the levels themselves are poorly planned and the controls are very crude and unintuitive, not letting us enjoy the great ideas implemented into the game. The areas we visit are very linear and absurdly so: we get to hit invisible walls and explore locations that seem identical to the previous ones. Having finished the game, we can play through the story mode yet again, this time with various bonuses unlocked: we can enjoy unlimited ammo or new, special weapons.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Review
All in all, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is the biggest disappointment since Duke Nukem Forever. The few innovative ideas are ruined by a complete lack of effort and rushed mechanics. My instinct is to avoid wasting my time, sadly I didn’t listen to it on this occasion
