Diehard GameFAN: The Walking Dead Review (360 Disc Version)

DHGF: For those who are fans of the franchise, The Walking Dead will prove enjoyable, one supposes, but taken as a final product, the experience is technically proficient, artistically interesting, and narratively hopeless and miserable no matter what you do, making it hard to recommend. It’s not hard to understand why people enjoy it, as it’s by no means a bad game; the visuals and audio are expertly crafted for the most part and are certainly stylish in design, and the gameplay, though not always spot-on, is mostly balanced and solidly implemented. However, the experience is also incredibly confused, as it never feels scary or focused enough on its monsters to be horror, never presents characters as likable or compelling enough to be drama, and feels mostly like a depressing character study over anything else. The plot lacks any significant hope spots to drive the player forward, your decisions are largely meaningless to the overall narrative, and no matter what you do the events...
