Game Profile

Think you're tough enough to survive a horde of undead walkers?

Based on the award-winning TV series, the do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game allows you to assume the role of the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, on a haunting and unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.

The iconic walkers will relentlessly hunt you down using a combination of sight, sound and smell. As Daryl, you'll need to tread carefully throughout each new area that you explore. Once discovered, it doesn't take much to attract an unstoppable horde of undead walkers, so every threat needs to be assessed, and every situation analysed.

Choose between whether to stay and fight while risking a gruesome death or using stealth to avoid the undead. No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.

Resources are scarce and scattered in The Walking Dead, and you'll have to not only ration supplies, but carefully consider food, medical needs, ammunition, and other goods as survival is based upon wit and intellect more so than simple, sheer skill. In order to endure this constant state of danger, you will have to do all you can to silence the noises they make and avoid detection.

Got me excited for a moment, thinking this was a port of the PC/360/ps3 game of "The Walking Dead".

Instead, it's an FPS by activision that no doubt will be mediocre at best. I'm not buying it anyway. Shame they're trying to cash in on the popularity caused by the other "The Walking Dead" game.
