For enthusiasts of the hit TV series The Walking Dead comes The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. This first person shooter game offers a terrifying new take on the zombie genre, and captures the world of the undead brilliantly. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is an action-packed horror adventure that is not to be missed.
Following the lead character of Daryl Dixon as he travels across zombie-ridden landscapes in search of his brother Merle, gamers can experience the zombie apocalypse from the very start of the epidemic. With the ultimate goal of reaching the safety of Atlanta, this gruesome game tells the story of these two characters as they fight to survive in a world overrun by the undead.
The iconic ‘walkers’ in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct restlessly roam the ruined terrain and hunt down the survivors of this devastated world. This superbly intense and creepy game creates a survival atmosphere unlike any other game currently on the market. With an undeniably scary feel that is sure to make the game a huge success, this is definately not for the feint-hearted.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct forces you to assess each situation before making your move, thus avoiding the unwanted attention of the walkers. They may be few and far between during some parts of the game, yet once you are detected you will be ambushed by hoards of flesh-eating zombies. Many fight or flight decisions will need to be made on the spot, and each decision made will be crucial to the survival of the main characters. The combat scenes are both fun and frightening, and the arduous journey through the death and destruction that lies in wait around every corner adds to the intensity of the game.
Released in March 2013, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct goes head to head with another gaming extravaganza that is BioShock Infinite, the newest instalment of the BioShock series. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is available for the Playstation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Windows. You can download free games and trials from many official websites, yet Activision have lowered the initial retail price of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct to make it more affordable for gamers everywhere to enjoy.
