Review: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

"Merlenderl, in a game, what can be better than that?" mumbled The Walking Dead actor Michael Rooker, in a voice that betrayed a man who could easily recall a dozen things better than Survival Instinct.

The brief trailer, in which no game footage was shown and two actors simply told fans to buy it, was a harsh clue that Daryl Dixon's undead adventure might not be everything it could have been. The sudden release date, coinciding with the return of the AMC television series, alongside tepid previews and visual evidence of a dated, unappealing experience, didn't exactly set the scene for a classic licensed property to rival the likes of Telltale's The Walking Dead

Life has a habit of surprising us, though. Sometimes, a game can look visually sub-par, be promoted poorly, and prepare us for a terrible experience, only to upset the playing field by being better than it has any right to be. 

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, however, isn't one of those games.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct review coming soon

In the meantime, enjoy this hastily taken shot of the intro cinematic. This is running on a retail Xbox 360. Yes, that's a PC mouse cursor just sat there in the corner.  Excuse the low quality of the pictures. Very much like the game, they were clearly made in a hurry! Look for our full review coming soon.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct trailer is ... hmmmm photo
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct trailer is ... hmmmm
by Jim Sterling

[Update: This is a not an official trailer by Activision or Terminal Reality. Rather, it's a fan made video of gameplay clips taken from an interview by IGN Start on the upcoming game.]

The Terminal Reality-developed The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct has gotten itself a full trailer, showing off all the minty fresh gameplay you can expect from this TV series spin-off. Yeah ... let's just say that comparing it to TellTale's effort isn't exactly fair. 

The first thing you'll note is the surprising lack of quality in the graphics department. With its flat environments and lackluster animation, it looks like an indie budget game as opposed to an Activision-backed licensed product. Also, am I wrong or is the trailer full of screen tearing? 

I'm willing to forgive games that aren't visually up to snuff, but the gameplay looks substandard too, featuring as it does meager pockets of zombies that seem fairly uninterested in doing damage, and the kind of shambling humdrum combat of years ago. Hardly inspiring stuff. 

Of course, the game is still in development, and there's no set date for its 2013 release, but if this video is what Terminal Reality thinks is acceptable to show the viewing public, I am going to remain quite wary. As big a fan as I am of withholding judgment until a game's released, even my woolly optimism has its limits. 

Trailers are meant to make games look attractive -- this makes Survival Instinct look like crap.

It’s been an exciting year for The Walking Dead. The comic series reached its 100th issue, the TV series has hit its stride in the current season, and Telltale Games’ adventure title has broken new ground for storytelling and reinvigorated a near-dormant adventure genre. Now, AMC’s TV series makes its videogame debut in a new action horror title.

Set before the main events of the TV series, the developers at Terminal Reality are determined to bring their own take on surviving the zombie apocalypse in their new single-player-focused survival horror game.
