The Walking Dead is an unflinchingly brutal portrayal of a zombie outbreak.
That said, on its own merits, THE WALKING DEAD EPISODE 1 is a unique title worth giving a try, regardless of its IP—but especially for those who appreciate what the established franchise strives for in storytelling.
As much as I nitpick, I still enjoyed The Walking Dead: Episode 1 - A New Day. As a fan of the comics, the game absolutely nails the tone and setting. Important characters like Hershel and Glen make an appearance, and they act just as you would expect them to. The voice acting is great, and the models are very expressive. You can tell exactly when someone is pissed off at you, or terrified at the zombies that are chasing you.
