    It looks alright. I'm hoping it defines the current state of the survival horror games but then again ZombiU helped point the genre in the right direction.

    It looks ok but nothing genre defining.

    I should note this is possibly a alpha version of the game and the full game may be better. If it isn't a alpha well..... it is yet another Activision cash grab.

    Uh... PS2 graphics say hi. What the hell why does it look like this?

    WAIT! Activision is dealing with this? For fuck sakes, why do companies always go to them?!

    Atleast we've got Telltale's game series. What with a season 2 and all, it'll be even better.

    I like how you just float around like a disembodied head. Like there's no camera bobble at all. I don't expect it to be Parkinson's disease here but at least like Call of Duty.

    Graphics were pretty terrible, the zombies seemed so bland and not scary at all. Like they just slowly drift towards you. I know they're making it accurate to the show in the "slow zombies" way but even that seemed poorly done.

    I seriously hope this is just some pre-alpha build as it seriously looks like it.

    okay. this game looks perfectly fine to me. not seeing any of the issues people are bitching about here...

    it seems every new game that comes out is expected to revolutionize a genre, which is retarded. I'll reserve any criticisms until we see something more than a 1 minute 47 second "gameplay" video...

    Not bad, kinda bored on Zombies now though so probably wont pick this up... maybe Dead Rising 3 will perk my interest in the genre once more

    After Tell Tale's work... yeah, I pity any other developer that has to work with The Walking Dead property.

    That being said, this doesn't do much to inspire confidence. Either this is really early footage, faked, or Activision's out to redefine "cash-in."

    Except when a genre is dying, yeah, we want something to revolutionize it and put new life into it. Otherwise, why even market the game as being in that genre.
    Dead Rising is in a different genre. Wait.... what genre would Walking Dead even be under? Just regular Survival?

    The 'zombie' genre, if such as thing exists.

    Maybe read about some of the mechanics, then you'll be somewhat entitled to bitch about a game you haven't played yet...

    Bitch? Excuse me? I just said the game looks like crap. Seriously, they could more effort into it, but then again, this is Activision...

    Seriously, there's no excuse to have appealing graphics in this day and age. Hell, even the Walking Dead from TellTale while not graphic heavy, still looked fantastic. This just looks bland.

    Did you miss Gahars and my comment about it being a possible ALPHA? Then again it is possibly just going to look like that. Even then who cares about graphics that much besides graphic whores. All I really care about is if the game is fun and plays well. Then again I usually hope the best for games and am let down frequently.

    I'm not a graphic whore at all, hell if there was a way to look at any of my old posts from WAAAAY back when in an easy way, you could see my stance on it, but this is just poor lazy design. Possible Alpha? Sure, okay, but there's nothing to say that it isn't, and even then, as you said, it will probably still look the same.

    I'm just saying, there's nothing appealing about the graphics at all. For The Walking Dead, the type of universe it is, you need to have it to suck you in more. The comics had their own appeal, the game had it's own appeal. This, this doesn't look like it's Walking Dead at all, it looks like a crappy mod of Half Life 2.

    That wasn't Gahars, that was me.

    And I didn't say it was possibly an alpha, I said it looks so bad that it looks pre-alpha. Not a good thing.

    Also I think ShadowSoldier's complaint extend beyond the shit graphics. The gameplay looked really dull too.

    Bitch. Yes.

    That is a complaint.
    Now, factor in that the complaint is directed towards a game you 1)haven't played and 2)doesn't even have a release...quarter...yet and your complaining = bitching.

    Terminal Reality made the Ghostbusters game and that was pretty goddamned good, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt on this until they provide and valid reason not to. (Perfectly acceptable) Graphics =/= a valid reason.

    Re-read again dipshit, I wasn't complaining that the game is bad at all, I said the graphics. I'm talking only graphics, in which case, based on what I see on what they showed, the graphics look like puke from an ass and need to be redone.

    Not remotely impressed. It just felt too bright and... lifeless? Really hope this is an alpha, because the models look like crap and looked to be poorly animated. Anyone know if this is meant to be canon? Because it seems like they took a bland, generic town setting, dropped some uninspired, barely-threatening, boring zombies into it, then made the fan-favorite the protagonist and gave him the controversial sidekick in order to sell a few units. I have a feeling they're just going to make a mess of the Dixon bros' back-story. Looks like just another stealth/survival game, but the enemies are more brain-dead than usual.
