Dreadful Debut Trailer Bodes Poorly for The Walking Dead FPS

1UP - Maybe being killed by zombies wouldn't be so bad. (PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, Xbox 360)

Maybe being killed by zombies wouldn't be so bad.
LOL, agreed.

I hope the game shown was a early, early built.

Looks like just another cash-in by Activision, looks outdated and even the animations and gameplay is clunky.
Muffins1223  +   467d ago
If they redid the animations,player models,and some of the textures this game wouldn't look that bad..............

It was confirmed it was a fan made trailer.

-Mezzo-  +   467d ago
Thank God.

But i think i was also confirmed that footage was indeed in-game. though i hope i'm wrong.
TheNocturnus  +   467d ago
It is in game but it from an alpha build I think. I don't expect to be amazed by this game but I do hope for at least a decent zombie killing experience.

hey mez how did u get all ur bubbles back?

Well, thats very viable, this is usually how prealpha/proof of concept looks. Visuals are always developed last unless you have a budget large enough to employ an art team for that long. And mechanics usually smooth out as well. you would be surprised what a little screen shake and smoke can do.

Is that supposed to be Merle? This game just looks bad... Really bad... Bland as hell, hope they step things up, I really do.

"Is that supposed to be Merle"?

Yeah from the latest episode in Season 3 (sneak peek). Apparently he gets sucked into a N64 while trying to outrun some walkers.

Oh, btw; Fred Flinstone called, he wants his graphics engine back.

Hahaha, never liked the guy, but that's too harsh a fate even for him...
Lordchunk  +   468d ago
I got this preorderd for my ps2 lol,
But in all seriousness lets just hope like -Mezzo- said hopefully this is a early build and you never know tell tales the walking dead got a lot of grief for the art style before its release now look where it's at.

The best Zombie killing game I have played thus far this gen is Dead Island.

As for the best game I have played this gen that had Zombies in it was The Walking Dead.

I can't wait for Dead Island 2: Riptide.

I liked Dead Island and I am also looking forward to the sequel, but I wouldn't go as far as to say this is the best zombie killing game I've played this gen...

That wasn't really a trailer, it was footage put together from a video interview. Unless this game comes out in the next 2 months the full game will most likely look allot better then that

As a huge Walking Dead fan, I hope to god this game looks better than what we saw.

Activation rushing out shoddy games for a quick dollar?

Nothing new to see here.

Looks really bad. I'm waiting for Telltale's season 2.
XXXL  +   467d ago
Pure shit.
bit-crusherrrr  +   467d ago
looks like an early gamecube title. for shame.
rbailey  +   467d ago
This game looks horrible. Telltale's version still the best imo.

everybody should watch the show where they announced the game .. "up at noon" or something. anyway from what I ve heard from the game creator .. this game definitely is no where as bad as people think and you can tell because the game looks nothing like cod but more about survival and evading the walkers which was a big point they emphasized on in the show... give the game a chance, don't bash it because its from activsion.

Understandable, Activision isn't known for quality only repetitiveness.

It's a fake trailer using early "in development" footage. No need to worry (yet).
rpd123  +   466d ago
Not really. First off, it wasn't a trailer. Second, it's from an early build (which is pretty clear, Jesus people). You're all just hating on it because it is published by Activision. Let me say that again: published. Just because they also happen to publish CoD doesn't mean the game will be a CoD clone. It's a completely different developer.

Yeah the game might suck, but it's not because of Activision. And we won't know if it sucks until it comes out, not because we saw a fan made trailer of early build game footage.

1up fail

So many babies will buy this game.

"Huhhhh! New Nazi Zombies DLC! This invented teh genre!"
crackforgangstas  +   466d ago
My impression was that the dev team was just much too excited to keep it a secret and decided to show off some early development footage...
Sugreev2001  +   466d ago
Well,Activision's behind it...so I wasn't expecting much anyway.
