Great Idea, Poor Execution
The idea is a great one. Take a zombie game, add an R.P.G. element to it, then sprinkle on a healthy dose of strategy. Who wouldn't love that?
Unfortunately, the production of the game stopped with the idea. It is not clear if the programming is totally at fault or not, but that is definitely the main issue here.
The physics are delegated to the graphics card, so expect an unnecessary amount of lag from that when you are faced with more than a couple zombies. You have to find your way to the fort before you can save, so you will get lag and you will repeat dying several times because of it and the flaws in the combat system.
The first flaw being the R.P.G. Your aim is not your character's aim, so you may miss or hit and your cursor is just a general area that your character tries to hit based on his skills. What makes things worse is that the camera will spin in circles while you try to aim and fire (or swing). So, combat is almost useless.
There is a sneak ability, but as far as I could tell it is as useless as your inventory. You will find plenty of food and medical kits, but will not be able to use them since the only inventory interaction available is "reload", "pick up", or "drop". But, don't get too hyper that you can reload because you won't be able to while being bitten by zombies.
Oh, and you won't be able to swing more than a few times before having to stand there and let the zombies bite you because they have an energy bar that runs out like mercury from a broken thermometer.
Basically, if you want to stand around and watch the world spin while zombies take 5 minutes to kill you this is the game for you. Otherwise, don't spend more than 20 cents on this piece of poorly executed programming.
An okay game.
They teach you a bit, tell you a bit of a story, and start you off in a safe location (for a limited time). The first part, before you can save, is to run to the save zone and clear it out. Prison, police station, or school; depending on which one you picked.
How to play? Well just run to that safe location (prison, police station, school) and clear it out, simple right? Not really. There are hoards of zombies in your way and they will find you. If you take the back roads, they are there. If you take the long thin way, they are waiting. If you hop from house to house they are inside too. Yes you start with a weapon, melee and gun, but that isn't enough to stop them. Besides, you miss 80% of the time with the melee. The zombies will miss about 60% of the time so they will kill you first. The best way to kill them is with a gun and that is if you an get them in the head.
In a short terms, if you do all of that you will be able to save and do missions to gather more people, supplies, weapons, and stuff to build with. After so long in game hours, there will be a major attack on your fort. Besides those attacks your fort may be found by a group of zombies.
Is it worth it, maybe for an hour or two play.
This game went off topic with zombies and completely blew it. This game is a poor choice. its ok but boring and hard to control.
If you're one of those people who buy games based on the cover, then you won't like this game. If you look it up before you buy it, you still probably won't like it. This isn't your typical zombie game, and it has a very cartoon feel to it. If you're looking for a fast-paced, zombie-killing rampage, look somewhere else. This game is closer to an action RPG than a shooter. The graphics aren't great, and the game itself is very buggy. The game also doesn't do much to explain itself or show you how to play. Minimal instruction are given at the beginning. Sound is mediocre at best, as are the mechanics. This isn't a game for anybody who is a casual gamer, as the difficulty is relatively high. And if you're looking for good graphics, spend your money on something else. There are better zombie-filled games on other systems.
good game screw the hater
satori probably never actually got to far cause he/she never gave it a chance also satori if your reading the go back to lame call of duty and stop attempting to make posts
PRETTY GOOD GAME...
its has really good gameplay, it just has alot of bugs. Most people can live with it but I think if they just patched up the game code and put it out on steam it would be succesful. I would for sure recomend getting it.
this a awesome game the graphics are okay but its the game it self its fun and challenge but its note one of those games where you can run out there expiating to blow every ones head off its a challenge if you like killing zombies and making plains this game is for you if you just want to blow things away this may not be the game for you
This is the worst game I have ever played. The only good part about it is that it has ok graphics. I mostly hate this game because it is basically impossible to beat, and I'm playing on easy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
