What Gamespot Users have to say about The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

  • User Rating 7.5

    While avoiding being a complete disaster, the game isn't without its flaws.

    Rated on March 21, 2013 by MorbisDraconis

    I must say that at first I was skeptical on buying this game. Only two trailers, rushed schedule release, the "$50" price tag, one can see where this one was headed. This game actually surprised me ...

    Just because this game isn't as bad as you thought, doesn't mean this game is good.

    Rated on March 19, 2013 by NightOfInsomnia

    Let's just say that because this game isn't as bad as we thought, doesn't give us an excuse to fool ourselves into thinking this game is decent. We all know the graphics were lackluster in this game, ...

    Could have been so much more, even being a big fan of the show the novelty wears off after about an hour of playing

    It is your classic abuse of flashing a label to reel in players... I am surprised the people involved with the production of the actual t.v. show would let their image be dirtied by a game like this. ...

    Throw the Walking Dead name on it, make a quick buck.

    I had really high hopes for this game, but it is very apparent this game was rushed. The level designs are lazy, the combat is too easy, and the picking up survivors idea is pretty much useless. On...

    It could be better but if you love the show you may want to give it a try.

    The game is pretty decent. The graphics are not the best but players have to keep in mind that this game doesn't have the budget of halo or other popular games. That being said it could be better. IT ...

    Doesn't deserve the bashing it's gotten.

    Rated on March 27, 2013 by Rudy64

    I picked up the game as I'm a fan of the comics, tv show and the Telltale Episodic game which was released last year. I didn't care to worry about all the reviews which were trashing the game sayin...

    Not very exciting. Bland graphics, clunky game play, very glitchy. If you must play, wait 6 months and get it on sale.

    I was really looking forward to this game to come out. Once I received it and I started playing, I was very underwhelmed. The graphics would have been great 5 years ago, but not today. I found this...

    Survival Instinct is a classic example of a lazy cash-in on a popular franchise. Do yourself a favor and just stay away

    Rated on April 16, 2013 by rg2345

    Games based on movies and TV shows are usually lazy cash-in's on popular franchises. Activision's latest game based on the popular AMC series is classic example of this. There isn't much of a story...

    This one's already dead.

    Rated on August 25, 2013 by Mikey2K10

    I love AMC's The Walking Dead. Gritty, suspenseful and riveting, the show has attracted millions of viewers for a reason. Activision bought rights for a game set in the universe; a first-person shoote...

    This shallow and generic action game does little to deserve its name brand.

    Rated on January 20, 2014 by SoNin360

    There are plenty of zombie movies, games, and other forms of entertainment out there. Few have excelled as well as The Walking Dead, which began as a comic book series and has since spawned a successf...
