Hmm...

How would this compare to L4D games? Is it co-op like that but more story-driven? If so this could be fun.

Haven't watched the show so I know very little about it.

Single player only afaik, but from what I read I wouldn't expect it to be the same gameplay. More tension driven rather than "can I make it through the next onslaught".

EDIT: Doesn't matter, just because I want it.

It's a refreshing change from games that get torn to pieces because a low rez texture somewhere in the woods doesn't sit well with someone.

As far as I'm concerned she's zombie bait, shoot her in the leg, laugh maniacally then run away.

What do you expect when it's based off a comic book?

Got the game and I'm about 20 minutes in - first impressions are good.

I like the comic book style, it's well done and the art fits the theme perfectly.

A lot of point and click mixed in with stand wsad on the keyboard, but they definetly had a controller in mind. I didn't even see a way to edit keys - will look at that more later.

So far it's a mix of what would be cut scenes to interactive prompts - a little frustrating as they made this to point and click under pressure. Yu don't have much time to figure out what needs to be selected if you turn the prompts off.

Glad I bought it, seems a nice change of pace and interesting so far.
