“The Walking Dead: March to War” Review

The Walking Dead: March to War is a brand new adventure based within the universe of Robert Kirkman’s post-apocalyptic narrative. As a survivor stumbling upon a new group, players will find themselves interacting with some of the most memorable and iconic characters from The Walking Dead series. With plenty to do and much to explore, March to War proves to be an impressive strategy game for mobile devices, and one that I see myself putting a lot of time into.

With a unique art style, March to War is definitely both a joy to play and look at. The concepts of surviving and scavenging for resources work well in the game, and resource runs are managed by a real-time clock similar to other free-to-play games.

Another thing that draws me to March to War is the game’s choices and dilemmas. When faced with dilemmasthe player must choose what to do in tense situations. An example of this would be a survivor in your group being bit. It’s up to the player to decide if the body part should be amputated or not. These choices make for unique situations & it varies the gameplay enough to keep things interesting. Another fun aspect of The Walking Dead: March to War is that players can recruit powerhouse characters from the comic such as Rick and Negan to join their council. Decisions are a big part of the game, and make the experience of March to War so unique.

The Walking Dead: March to War’s Washington D.C. is beautiful. Featuring the area’s landmarks beautifully realized for the apocalypse, the setting is another thing that doesn’t disappoint in this explosive mobile title. The game’s multiplayer capability is also quite interesting, as players work together to build alliances or against each other in a deadly quest for survival. Players must find their own balance between making friends and choosing their battles, as every choice has an effect on how you will grow.

For a free-to-play game, March to War feels like a very fleshed out experience. The game is immersive, deep, and makes you feel like you’re a part of the comic universe. With beautiful visuals and a close connection to the franchise’s most well-known characters, the game will not disappoint hardcore fans looking for a way to spend their time before the Season 8 premiere this October. Overall, I had a blast checking out March to War, and see it as one of the most full experiences Walking Dead gamers can dive into. For all your news on The Walking Dead, keep it here on NYCityGuys!
