As long as you’ve got a group of friends to play with, running the missions, leveling up characters, getting new gear, and cutting through swaths of zombies is fun in Overkill’s The Walking Dead. But it’s all wrapped up in a package of multiple frustrations: Technical issues, unavoidable repetition, and a general lack of direction are a serious drag on an otherwise exciting and tense zombie-filled co-op adventure.
Loading times are also quite frustratingly long, and a minute (sometimes two) can go by with a static photo of a zombie flashing on the screen as you contemplate pulling your hair out. All of that being said though, if you have a full squad and you're ready for some simple zombie-slaying co-op adventures, Overkill's The Walking Dead can be quite fun. Just don't get scared off by the frustrating first mission or the loading times.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead could have been something special, but it finds itself dragged down by poorly implemented and designed systems. There’s flashes of what could have been, and there’s a chance that Starbreeze will turn this game around in the coming months to rebuild from a poor launch, but as it stands I couldn’t even recommend this game to the most hardcore of The Walking Dead fans.
