Nintendo Life: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Review

Nintendo Life: Zombies are impossible to avoid. Not that the living dead are walking among us and causing havoc, but the media has been absolutely permeated by them. As evidence, we have The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct; the Wii U’s second game about zombies – known in-game as “walkers” – works as the prequel to a television show about zombies and the ensuing apocalypse. The television show, titled The Walking Dead, is based on a comic book about zombies, also titled The Walking Dead. Being a video game based on a TV show based on a comic book, it might be safe to say that Survival Instinct is one of the most postmodern games in the history of the medium. And that’s just about where the praise both begins and ends. (The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, Wii U) 3/10
