The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is an extensive action game created for virtual reality sets. The production was developed and released by Skydance Interactive, and was based on a license for a popular comic book series entitled The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman.

Plot

The action of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners takes place a few years after the outbreak of a mysterious epidemic turning people into the living corpses. Survivors are forced to fight for survival - not only zombies but also other people are a threat in this inhospitable world.

The production takes us to New Orleans, where the war for influence is fought by two warring factions trying to introduce their own rules in the city. The first is The Tower, headed by a certain Mama, and the second is Reclaimed, led by the charismatic Jean-Baptiste. The city also hides a mystery and its discovery may change the fate of this brutal conflict. During the game we play the role of a hero who, fighting for survival of the next day, has to take sides or efficiently navigate between them, while helping the outsiders of New Orleans... or just taking care of yourself.

Mechanics

In The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners the action was shown from the first person perspective (FPP). As we play, we travel through vast locations inspired by real New Orleans districts (such as the Garden District or Bywater). The pillar of the game is a feature campaign, during which we perform a variety of tasks. Who we decide to help, and who we leave to ourselves, has an impact on the further course of the story; additionally, there is usually more than one way to complete each order.

An important part of the game is the fight against opponents. During the clashes we make use of a wide range of guns and firearms. We find or manufacture weapons and ammunition on the basis of an extensive crafting system; every piece of equipment can be dismantled and we need both specific resources and special projects to produce new ones. If you don't have any means of defense at the moment, you can rescue yourself with found items like chairs, try at hand combat or point an unloaded gun at the enemy, hoping that you can be intimidated (which for obvious reasons does not work on zombies).

While there's nothing to stop you from attacking your opponents with a battle cry on your lips, it's often better to act in secret (the creators even let us use camouflage to keep you surrounded by zombies) and eliminate them from surprise. In addition, the game is made more attractive by the possibility of climbing on surrounding elements such as cars or building walls, which you can use for your own benefit, for example to lose your chase or attack your opponent from above.

Technical aspects

The three-dimensional graphics of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners presents a high level of performance. The detailed locations may be liked above all, but the detailed models of the opponents are also worthy of attention. It is worth noting that the game is extremely brutal.
