Story: Lee Everett a convicted criminal is about to be sent to jail, but on the way there a accident happens and he is gives a second chance at life in a world that is now infested with the living dead. So he and every other person he meets must find a way to survive against the dead and anything else that stands in their way. In 400 days you will get to see what the 5 new characters experience after the events of the 1st season.

Good or Bad Story?: The Story in season 1 is 1 of the best stories in a video game to date as you get to learn about each character that you interact with and along the way you will have to make decisions some easy and some really hard. All of the decisions you make in the story will alter the dialog and the events for the game. 400 days does a good job of giving you a taste of what to expect in season 2 and all of the choices you made in season 1 carry over to 400 days. GOOD!

Graphics: Since the game is based on a comic book, the graphics are cell-shaded to match the look. It looks really good.

Audio: The voice acting is some of the best I ever heard in a game.

Game play:

Good: The Walking Dead is a Survival horror point and click game. In Season 1 you play 1 character, but in 400 days you get to play 5 characters and you can play those 5 in any order you want. The majority of the game is cut scenes with the ability to make decisions, but you will get to move the character at times.

Bad: The retail version has issues with the frame rate and audio not syncing on the previous and next time cut scenes.

Overall: The Walking Dead is a story driven game that is more like a TV show than a game, but it’s not a bad thing as it tries something new for games. The only problem is the retail version having issues on the previous and next time cut scenes. This game shows that games can tell stories just like a TV shows and movies. And it’s 1 of my favorite games of 2012. A must have.

Likes: Graphics, story, voices, and game play.

Dislikes: Retail version having issues.

Wish list: Sequel.

Score: 5/5 AWESOME!

Recommended for fans of: Walking Dead, Horror, Survival, point and click, and Telltale.

Story: Deadpool wants a game based on himself so he hires High moon to make the game, but the CEO refuses until Deadpool blows up a portion of the studio. After that happens the CEO of High moon calls Deadpool to tell him that they will send the script for the game and as soon as he gets it Deadpool grabs a crayon and starts changing the script to his liking and the adventure begins.

Good or Bad Story?: The story is good as you see it from Deadpool’s view, but the story has another story within the story and it starts going crazy as soon as the game begins. It doesn’t take itself serious and that’s because you play a character that is self aware. GOOD!

Graphics: The game looks good, but I would have liked if the developers went with a more cell-shaded look.

Audio: The music is well done, but the voice acting is really good as Nolan North once again voices Deadpool and he narrates the game all the way and will also say some really funny things.

Game play:

Good: Deadpool is a 3rd person hack and slash action shooter where you can slash, shoot, and teleport/counter your way through the game. The shooting works in 2 ways press the fire button to shoot and then you can move the camera to select who you want to shoot in the balls. The second way is to press the aim button and it will lock-on to a nearby enemy and after that you can start shooting. Deadpool can even run backwards and still be shooting his enemies without even looking, but your guns do not have infinite ammo so you if you run out then kill your enemies or look around to find more ammo. Also you can switch the camera sides to the left or right. The game also has combos for both air and grounded attacks that can be chained by using light and heavy attacks also you can add a gun shot in to the combo. You can also teleport to safety when in danger and you can counter incoming attacks(not all) when prompt and can do combos after. When taking damage and you want to recover health then you must hide somewhere or take cover and eventually Deadpool will start recovering health. The game also includes exploration, plat forming, puzzles, minigames, parodies, boss fights, stealth, X-men cameos, and upgrades.

Bad: The 3rd person shooter camera doesn’t suit this game as you will have to constantly move the camera when slashing since the camera doesn’t rotate when the character moves. And on the last part of level 5 and going through the last 2 levels the game gets boring as all of the excitement that was in the beginning goes away.

Overall: Deadpool the game is funny, weird, and a fun game for the most part except near the ending. This game is definitely worth playing for the comedy and action. But I would like to see the camera change.

Likes: Graphics, voices, game play, story, and music.

Dislikes: camera and the levels near the ending.

Wish list: Different graphic style, better camera, improve levels.
