Like a lot of people I’m a huge fan of The Walking Dead franchise. I’m currently playing the 2012-released point-and-click game and enjoying it heaps. I also spent quite a few hours during 2012 playing Left 4 Dead 2, so I’ve had a bit of zombie action – and that’s before playing The Secret World.
Which is why I was excited to hear a first-person shooter version of The Walking Dead is coming. Until I actually watched the trailer that is. Before I start my gripes, have a look for yourself:
Actually instead of whining, I’ll just pose a question: is there anything you see in that trailer that hasn’t been done better in other zombie games? Now that The Secret World has its reticle option I’d argue it looks at least as good and has a lot more gameplay options in addition.
If you want a laugh, read some of the comments on the vid on YouTube. The trailer overall does nothing to demonstrate to me it’s anything that a cash-grab from a very popular franchise.
Do you agree?
