Walking Dead: Survival Instinct reviews begin after launch, scores inside

Friday, 22nd March 2013 09:23 GMT By Dave Cook

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct reviews are late. We’re still waiting on copies of the game, begging the question, ‘Is it awful?’ Find out in our score round-up below.

I asked why we hadn’t seen much of the game at all since it was announced in my interview with developer Terminal Reality. On paper some of the game’s concept sound like they could have been brilliant but, well, the scores are below.

Game Informer – 5/10
IGN – 4.5/10
Polygon – 3/10

We’ve also got some raw gameplay footage here, so you can check out what the game is actually like to play.

Got a score we’ve missed? Chuck it below and we’ll add it when we can.

    PA Report: “Stay away.”

    Giant Bomb: 1 star (out of 5)

    Kotaku reviewed it, but didn’t display the traditional “Yes/No” score
    (Based on the review, however, it would be a big “NO”)

    (Destructoid still says “review coming soon”)

    @KAP I don’t like Activision either, but this has to fall squarely on the shoulders of Terminal Reality. They built a terrrible, terrible game. The only mistake Activision made was publishing it.

    @8 According to Superannuation it took less than a year to make, so that explains a lot. I don’t think that was Terminal Realitys call.

    @8 yeah, I don’t think any dev in their right mind would push out a product like this, unless of course their publisher strong-arms them into it.

    Everytime you see no reviews out before launch, its pretty safe to say that the game is gonna suck.
    Cheap cash-ins happen all the time, here is an latest example.
