How's performance on 360?

#1 Posted by TheMasterDS (2424 posts) -

I don't want to know any spoilers whatsoever and the guys are apparently not covering the game since they're busy. My save is on 360 and there's no Xbox One or PS4 version at the moment or possibly ever. If I play this game without waiting for next gen I'll be playing it on 360. The performance in Walking Dead Season 1 on 360 was shaky. I spent 900 dollars on console hardware this year. I don't want to deal with 360 games that have performance issues ever again.

Does this season of Walking Dead have framerate issues on 360? Would you recommend I play it despite the issues?

The loads are pretty damn terrible and it hitches up a lot between scenes.

I regret not getting the PC version since Fables has spoiled me, but all my saves are for 360 so I decided to give it a go. It's not unplayable, but far from smooth.

It really wasn't that bad, considering it didn't affect gameplay.

When you are actually playing, it's fine. It's just when it is loading and when you get an achievement that it is not great.

i had some issues (mostly at the beginning of the episode, it seemed) with hitches and stuttering, but i wouldn't say it had much of an impact on the enjoyability of it. i didn't particularly like the 1st episode, but it wasn't because of performance problems.

like everyone else said, it hitches here and there... but gameplay isn't affected.

It hitches on PC, too. Though probably not as badly as 360.

But it did affect gameplay. It would often hitch up during dialog sequences that you had very short windows to make your choice. That's about as much gameplay as the Walking Dead had.

I had it hitch up during a couple QTE fights that caused me to die.

It's not really a game that requires finesse or skill, I'd just play it and fight through whatever minor issues you experience.

I downloaded and played it earlier today. I suppose after almost a month after release, the frame rate and load screens are still choppy and jittery. However, these issues don't affect game play whatsoever.
