A new video game based on the famous TV show the walking Dead It’s now released on consoles and fans who jumped in to check it out are reporting yet another annoying, broken, and ugly mess published by Game Mill, just like that terrible King Kong character Game from earlier this year.
My job is to write about video games and stay up to date with what’s happening in the industry. So I was very surprised to see something new walking dead A game — which I had no idea existed — lands on consoles today without much fanfare. I don’t doubt there are marketing materials and even advertisements for it The Walking Dead: Fates before its release, but somehow I completely missed it all and discovered the game existed about an hour before writing this paragraph. And let me tell you, it was a nice Friday afternoon.
Let’s jump right into the first thing I saw in this game: a boss fight between Rick and Shane over who should lead the group. The big feature of this game is that players can change the events of the show, which is great in concept! I like that idea. Unfortunately, the shootout between the former friends and the former cops is one of the worst and wittiest boss fights I’ve seen in 2023.
I think Rick takes about 20 bullets directly to the face before he falls down. The fight then moves into the second phase, at which point, the audio begins to cut and characters’ voiceovers play over each other while Shane repeatedly hits Rick with a crowbar. In the end, after all this ridiculousness, Rick dies and Shane emerges victorious, changing the events of the show. But at what cost?
The Game Mill strikes again, unfortunately
Rest The Walking Dead: Fates Doesn’t look much better. The cutscenes aren’t animated, the character models look straight out of the PlayStation 3 game, and gameplay seems to be “run to the zombies, kick or punch the zombies, and press the stab button.” Then do this a few hundred times or so.
Without turning it on I can’t tell if it is In reality worst than Skull Island: Rise of Kong, another game published by low-budget publisher Game Mill. But even if The Walking Dead: Fates Better yet, this is a low bar to clear.
I don’t blame the developers behind this game for being a mess. As previously reported about KongGame Mill appears to offer little support and resources to the studios working on its games.
So it’s entirely possible (and likely) that talented and motivated developers put in a lot of effort Fates In a short period of time to get something, that’s what we got. Although this is bad and may be another sign of how to do this The gaming industry treats its workers like trashit doesn’t change the fact that you probably shouldn’t buy this new one walking dead Game. But enjoy the videos of his wonky boss fighting all you want.
