Zombies. It isn't nice when they go shuffling around, eating live human brains like they own the place. At the very least, it’s quite dangerous. And naturally, the cause of a lot of tension between surviving humans. This last part is exactly what popular graphic novel and TV show The Walking Dead focuses on - the humanity and drama that comes from such an apocalyptic setting.

Now, Activision and Terminal Reality are set to recreate this tension with The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. It’s a first-person shooter, but not in the traditional sense, focusing more on strategy and (as the name suggests) survival rather than shooting the undead in the face. Which, you know, you can also do. But you’ll run out of ammo really quickly and find yourself in a bit of a predicament.

Resource management is the name of the game, with every threat laid out before you and a necessity to stop every so often and check your surroundings. Is it worth fighting a small pack of walkers while risking a nasty death, or is it best to use stealth and avoid the enemy? The decisions that lead protagonist Daryl Dixon makes throughout the game will shape the story as you help get the crossbow-wielding survivor to the (apparent) safety of Atlanta.
