    Most of us saw that so called "early BETA" footage a little while ago and thought that this new Walking Dead game looked like total shit. Anyway Activision have released a proper trailer featuring footage of the game and well...it still looks as shitty with the same plastic hair look.



    I thought that this game could be good, the makers did do the enjoyable Ghostbusters (PC/360/PS3 versions), Scarface titles but then also the "I always felt they were shit" Bloodrayne games and of course the low rated Star Wars Dance-Me-Do (whatever that was called) so maybe I was hasty to think "this won't be horrible"...but you know graphics don't make a game, gameplay does etc.

    Haha what's up with people putting their opinions in the title of user submitted news?
    Agree with you though Hadrian, it's not a good sign but as you said we still don't know what the game actually is like.

    Could be fun and with graphics this dated it could run ok on the Wii-U.

    I have had a lot of fun with Dishonoured at it looks the same if not more dated than this. Gafix aren't everything.

    I think you've played a different Dishonoured to the rest of us. Didn't look remotely like this.

    The backgrounds and buildings were ok but the character models were straight out of half life 2. Talk about plastic hair and awkward movements.

    If you mean the style of shading, it was a stylistic choice.

    I felt as if I was back playing the orange box. Even the players character movements and interaction with objects felt like a much older game. The simplicity suited the game though. As you said, it was probably done by choice.

    Haha it actually does look pretty dated. And from the looks of the trailer it doesn't fit into the show very well even though it's supposed to.

    Back then (this game) they had pipe bombs / explosives and crap and then all of the sudden when they join up with Shane's group (season 1 of the show) it's back to basics...?

    Stanley Kubrick: "You can if you freeze it."

    Well, at least I can give Activision credit for reading up on Kubrick.
