i hate to say it but i have to agree most of that footage looks terrible, the way it seems to handle and the look of the game just seem amaturish!

Hopefully this is either fake or an extremely early build!

ABizzel11846d ago

Mixed feelings.

Ya, More Walking Dead, and this time you get to be a true zombie slayer.


1. it's Call of Duty meets the Walking Dead
2. Graphics are good and bad at the same time. Hair looks like plastic (0:42).
3. TONS of screen tearing
4. Seems like a corridor game, running from alley to alley.

I need to see more, but for now I'm not impressed.

NukaCola1846d ago

Agree. This looks like dookie butter all around. The animations are horrid, the game looks outdated and boring. This is like a poor counter stike map done ages ago but never finished. Kill it with fire...and someone please stop Activision from trying to ruin everything.

inveni01846d ago

This looks awful. It's GOTTA BE a joke. Unless this is for touch devices, of course...

Rumor1846d ago

Can't even put hands in the ladder animations? Jeez.

Well, it is a prototype so I guess I shouldn't be so critical

badz1491846d ago

this is a joke, right? for a next year game, on consoles nonetheless...that is one terrible looking game! doesn't look fun at all!

Dee_911846d ago

looks like an arcade game.
Is it ?
Cant be worth $60 looking like that

looks like a half life 2 mod

EddieNX 1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

Oh for the love of God.... Is that the *^&(ing CoD Engine ? *sigh*

Judging by this video , Are they doing a dreamcast version ?

Irishguy951846d ago

You mean like Left 4 dead? That's what this game looks like except the gameplay is worse

Rivitur1845d ago

No HL2 mods look better than this. (runs off to play No More Room In Hell)

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

Same company that produces cod so don't expect much. Bad hit detection on zombie shooting.

Some of the assets in the game look good like so I am guessing is a tiny environment game.

They will spend more money than the current walking dead game and not even get nominated for goty next year. watch..


But will the zombie cod fans buy we will see..

Yes I have -20% faith in them to make a awsome game. Might as well just make it for kinect and let it die a cheaply made death.

Jason1431846d ago

Looks like fiddlers green pc game
Yeah when I saw this live on ign I was like oh my looks so bad. Glad it wasnt just me bing picky

rezzah1846d ago

I rather watch the show or read the comics over this crap.

The gameplay isn't good, and the feel of an apocalyptic world filled with zombies doesn't present itself very well in that video.

Kind of makes me think of COD, the gameplay. Who is the developer?

Old McGroin1846d ago

How in the name of God does that gameplay remind you of Call Of Duty?!

As far as I know Activision are developing it so there is a COD link but to me it looks nothing at all like Call Of Duty.

Thatguy-3101846d ago

Seriously a lot of people just find any little thing to hate on activision. How on earth does this remind you of COD? no way was the character just running and gunning zombies with ak-47's and grenades was he?

mushroomwig1846d ago

'prototype version of that FPS game.'

Calm down, of course it's going to look bad in it's current condition.

Grap1846d ago

it does looks lame. and kind flat. the zombie animation just terrible

PhantomT14121846d ago

I don't know, I really liked the Ghostbusters game this developer (Terminal Reality) did, it was really fun while staying true to the franchise so maybe they can pull out the same magic for TWD. We must be fair, this is cleary a leaked video with no presentation effort whatsoever, maybe the intersting parts and key-selling points of the game were not shown here...

cyguration1846d ago

...that's a good thing.

PR videos only show you the "special" parts to get you to buy the game.

Would you buy the game seeing only a video of ACTUAL gameplay not the special gameplay?

This here is the majority of what the game will consist of: corridor shooting and COD style gameplay.

PR videos butter everything up to sell you on an idea, not the actual product.

Klopek1846d ago

Congratulations on being one of the only people to actually acknowledge Terminal Reality as the developer rather than blindly spewing hate for the publisher. After their success with Ghostbusters, I too have high hopes that they can make something worth playing.

omi25p1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

I must have seen a different video to you.

Its clearly an early build, but what is shown looks interesting.

He uses bottles to distract the zombies, You cant stand and fight because 1 bite = game over.

Melee weapons and stealth are a key aspect to the game.

The environmental graphics look ok. Merl looks exactly like Merl (although low detail and texture)

The zombies are clearly unfinished and still being worked on.

If this is a very very early build it could have potential.

avengers19781846d ago

Looks very dated, like it's an early PS3, or 360 game... I hope the final product is a lot better than what we see here.

That-Guy1846d ago

That's an insult to early PS3 and 360 games.

IAMERROR1846d ago

wow! The budget must be low... very low.

finbars751846d ago

Looks as bad as the downloadable episodes.It will win GOTY only because its the walking dead.The episodes where just plain garbage.It only won because the show is a hit.The fact that it won and it barely sold on consoles blows me away.Must of been all the hardcore fanboys of the show who voted and never even played the game.The walking dead is overated anyways.

Liquid_Ocelot1846d ago

So you think that all the 'hardcore fanboys of the show' bought, played and voted for the game.. -_- probably half of those hardcore fanboys as you say don't even care about the game as much as they care for the comic.

This game looks horrendous yes, but TellTale did a wonderful game. Don't hate on them.

EnderSavedMe1846d ago

This game looks absolutely nothing life the episodic games. Either you have never played any of them, or you just don't know a quality breakout game from every other generic, far too repetitive IP out there.

Consoles or not, TellTale's game sold phenomenally well for what it is via all it's available platforms. I didn't expect it to win GOTY but i'm glad it did.

meetajhu1846d ago

Too many Zombie games and movies keeps getting me worried that the governments are trying to say "BE PREPARED"

Ghost_of_Tsushima1846d ago

I think the reason the graphics suck is so the can keep the 60fps like they do in CoD. If they up the graphics they'll probably be stuck with 30fps. I like amazing graphics but I also like 60fps so idk what is the better option.

DarkBlood1846d ago

that would be true but for how it is in the show and comics theres no reason for it to be 60fps when the walkers dont even move that fast

ninjahunter1846d ago

Yea, kinda does, but i remember a certain cartoonish, point and click adventure that people thought the same about.

Rivitur1845d ago

Sam and Max? or Jurassic Park? hehehe

Sarcasm1846d ago

Man that looks so generic... Way to go Activision...

Oh well we have TellTale's Seasons 2 to look forward to.

AzaziL1846d ago

Never had my hopes up, it's Activision, they probably just modded the IW engine and CoD's zombie mode and slapped the walking dead license on it.

Ashunderfire861846d ago

You play as the two racist rednecks, and the graphics and gameplay look bad. Not missing much folks. I rather play Left 4 Dead, The Last of Us, and the other Walking Dead game that got game of the year at the VGAs.

M_Prime1846d ago

i can't be the only person thinking, why not simply play DEAD ISLAND if this is what the final product will be

KidBroSweets21845d ago


Because that game is awful too

tee_bag2421846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

I highly doubt it's anywhere close to finished.
It likely to be a pre-alpha build, considering this is the first we have seen or heard about it.

KidBroSweets21845d ago

If they could just take the time and do this game right, it would easily get game of the year. I'm actually saddened by this video.

J86blum1843d ago

Yeah, it actually looks bad. Shadows wheres the shadows, wheres the detail in ...everything, this must be beta....please.

hennessey861846d ago

Everyone will be hating it on here, I'll give it a chance because I love the walking dead.

Sp1d3ynut1846d ago

Wrong. Being an Activision game, people will be skeptical and critical of this game, and have every right to be. I love TWD as much as anyone, but that doesn't keep me from being smart. Activision is the king of killing franchises...wouldn't be surprised to see them mess this up out of the gate. Besides, it's the end of a very long generation, and some stellar games have come out recently, and more are coming out next year. Devs should have the current hardware on lock by now, so there's no excuse for shoddy graphics, gameplay mechanics, etc.

dubt721846d ago

The king of killing franchises? Capcom begs to differ.

Braid1846d ago

People will NOT be hating on quality content. The publisher has nothing to do with poeple's reaction, except some obvious trolling comments, and ignoring them has to be the first thing you should have learned when you stepped into the world of internet.

That being said, I have to agree on people who's saying that the game does not look very promising. It's almost as if they said "Hey let's take Dead Island and slap the Walking Dead label on it and make it an official WD product, as gamers love both Dead Island and the TV show." As long as the quality is there I wouldn't mind, but we can not know if it'll just copy and paste the already established zombie formula or bring something new to table.

EddieNX 1846d ago

I gave 007 legends a chance , Because I love 007!!!!!

You get the point..... Activision is the walking dead. They're publishing themselves...

Neckbear1846d ago

Wow, the animations look almost as shitty as Skyrim's.

BanBrother1846d ago

Agreed. It is saddening, as I love The Walking Dead.
I would have preferred EA to get it than Activision.

Even though I think EA is worse than Activision as a whole, at least they make good games (albeit, with day 1 dlc and online passes).

This looks worse than an old Source engine game. While graphics is not everything, if you make a game in this day and it looks like an early gen game, you can tell it is a cheap cash-in.

TWD fans deserve better. But, as long as Bobby gets his cheque right??

josephayal1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

Looks Like L4D
