Based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series, The Walking Dead is about a world devastated by an undead apocalypse and the horrifying choices you’re forced to make to survive.
The Walking Dead is a five-part game series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series. Play as Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, who has been given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to maintain their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell.
The number of video games featuring undead enemies is becoming as common place as TV shows and movies starring vampires. Eradicating zombies became popular with Capcom’s Resident Evil games, but as that series moves away from the traditional brain dead opponents in favor for the “infected”; it’s been up to other titles to share their take on the zombie apocalypse.
Dead Rising, Dead Island, Dead Nation, Yakuza of The End, and now, Lollipop Chainsaw, all put gamers in the hands of protagonists more than capable of defeating zombies with their eyes closed. Sadly, just like Resident Evil, all of those games lack the one element I’ve been looking for in a zombie oriented action game, and that’s the scare factor. Fortunately, Telltale Games’ upcoming episodic game, based on Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel “The Walking Dead”, seems to fit the bill in that department and more.
