Why The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is Still the Best Zombie VR Game Around

The time has come to talk of many things: Of blood and guts - and The Walking Dead - of Saints and Sinners.

Look, we get it; you’re always on the lookout for something new. So are we! But new only goes so far, and at the end of the day it’s about quality. The zombie VR game genre has been an obvious platform since VR became a thing, and The Walking Dead is a story and world that can present new opportunities for new ideas. But we’ll stake our claim that The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is unchallenged as the best Walking Dead VR game you can get a hold of on the biggest variety of platforms. And you can even argue that it’s the best Walking Dead game out there today. The proof is in the gooey, gory pudding. People pudding. Guts, is what we’re trying to say.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is top shelf zombie VR madness, and you can attribute that to not only the great, action-packed gameplay and real focus on story, but also the updates that have come to the game over time. Since launching in January 2020 we’ve seen multiple new ways to enjoy Saints & Sinners, from the Meatgrinder update introduced in July, to the upcoming debut on the Oculus Quest family. Going cordless with one of the best-reviewed VR games ever, let alone a zombie VR or The Walking Dead game? It’s like a next-level sandwich. Saints & Sinners set a new bar when it launched, and nearly a year later we found a new bar, to lead the charge in what’s next for VR as a platform.

You may be thinking, “well of course The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners official website thinks it’s the best zombie VR game ever.” So don’t just take our word for it. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is a critical and community hit as well. Look at the Steam page! Over 3,000 reviews and a Very Positive rating ain’t easy. But we did it. The critical review space ate the game up too (we got zombie puns, oh yeah), with a “Strong” OpenCriting rating and a laundry list of green scores on Metacritic. We aren’t blowing smoke here; we’re too busy blowing up the undead hordes in our new The Trial mode. Just take this quote for example:

"It’s a symphony of systems working harmony to make you feel like you are actually there" - PlayStation Lifestyle
