So word on the street is that the new Walking Dead; Survival Instinct Video Game is…….TERRIBLE. Oh dear, another highly anticipated disappointment.
Reviews are bad and getting worse. Metacritic gave it 36/100 stating “generally unfavorable reviews”. Polygon awarded only a 3/10 rating with this to say: “”The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is the exact sort of lazy, cheap cash-grab that gave licensed games a bad name in the first place”. Tell me how you really feel.
So what’s with all the shit talk? I try to take negativity with a grain of salt, for example, there are people that DON”T like Anne Hathaway…I mean WHAAA?
The music is, if you can call it that, like a room full of bad B movie sound tracks. The combat system is anti-climactic. According to gamestop.com: “It’s not the Zombies you have to worry about in the painfully dull The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct”. Ouch.
This game SOUNDED like it had so much potential. It sounded FUN, ENTHRALLING….not BORING! Ugh. Seriously I guess we should have known. This much hype and it had to be too good to be true. Especially when it seemed like there wasn’t a lot of production time. Did they even test the fun factor? Apparently they assumed the title alone would hypnotize people into their happy place.
