GamingLives takes on The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct to see whether this is one of those rare TV tie-ins that is actually half-decent.
"Survival Instinct is a prequel to the TV series, following Darryl Dixon’s journey through Georgia to find his brother and get out of there, or at least, I think that’s their objective. The story takes a real backseat in this title, which is surprising given it had two writers and eight members on the “story team”, and mostly just sees you travelling south because other people have told you to. There are no twists or turns, and barely any emotional moments that the series is well known for. The only emotional scene occurs within the first five minutes, and after that it’s entirely possible to ignore every other character and their story, none of whom are interesting anyway."
