This game would be better if it weren’t for 20 F words every episode. There is a lot of language expect the B word, S word and very frequent F word. Plus the violence gets a little gory at times shootings blood and some Gore is your main recipe here.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

What makes Walking Dead: The Game noteworthy isn't its incredibly well-written story. Nor is it the well-paced blend of action and exploration. It's not even the truly interesting characters. Instead, what makes the game one that you shouldn't miss is its unique use of consequences. Actions have ramifications in the game -- and you literally have to choose who lives and dies. And you're not given a lot of time to do this, which adds to the immersiveness of the game.

The result makes for a game that is introspective, which is the last thing you expect from a zombie game. Sure, it'd be nice to have all of the episodes included in the initial price, but there's enough going on in this game that you won't feel ripped off when you pay full price.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
