Best zombie game cant wait for it to come to XBone
the game is about survival. Not killing everything in sight. Now that's out of the way. Overall the game is a solid 9-9.5 in my book. The only quarrel I have with it is the driving in the cars. I'm sure it will be fixed in the XBone version. But other than that, everyone who plays it will have to learn how to work together with the NPC's in the game. Some people are helpful, some you won't like. But realism sets in when someone in your community dies. Their dead. No reverting to a previous save. They are gone. Just like when you use resources in the game. Use it, it's gone. No respawning. The game is the absolute best when it comes to the zombie genre. Have it for 360 & preordered for the XBone. Undead labs know what they are doing. Hope to see more games from them in the future!!!

The best Zombie Game, bar none
First of all, before I describe what this game is, I feel I should advise you on what it is not.
This is not a mindless 'hack n'slash' game where you do nothing but battle endless hoards of undead.
Yes there are battles involved, but the main point of this game is survival, not slaughtering everything that moves
It is a game of survival, and is a team effort. You must fortify your base against attack. You can build a workshop to repair broken weapons, as well as create new ones.
You can build a medical center to tend to the wounded, as well as a garden, needed to grow food
You will come across like-minded survivors with whom can join you, if you wish. Some actually have useful purposes and others are just dead weight.
You must go and scavenge for supplies to defend your home-front, and resources are valuable and scarce. Once an item has been depleted, it does not 'respawn' after a certain time, but is forever removed from the game
And another feature, which you will either love or hate is 'perma death'. When a character dies, he dies. There is no 'loading previous saved game' feature as the game will save on it's own, quite regular, which brings a certain amount of realism.
And the game is in an open world setting. If going alone against the world is your thing, have at it. You may meet your doom quicker, but you do have that option
All in all, State of Decay is well done, even on a 'shoe-string' budget and encourage you to check it out.
In my opinion it is far superior to the already-acclaimed Zombie-genre games, at half the price.
I feel that Undead Labs have indeed set the bar and standards

You'll find out what an apocalypse would be like.
State of decay is an awesome zombie survival game. Definitely would recommend it to anyone that like games that have to do with survival. The add-on of state of decay breakdown is what I have fell in love with. There is no story no main character. Just you and a group try to survive as long as you can; in a free roam zombie survival game. Each progression of breakdown definitely makes the game more challenging. If you like a challenge this is the game for you. The best part is a 24 hour simulation, this means even when you are not playing characters can still get sick, get hurt, or even die. This game puts you right smack in the middle of what an apocalypse would be like. (A struggle) This game definitely gets a 9.5/10 from me. Although there are a few glitches here and there, undead labs have fixed these to unglitch after a few seconds. These do not take away the excitement of the game. I have played lots of zombie games and undead labs has definitely made the best one so far, in my opinion.

like DayZ except without people trying to kill you
so i played state of decay and i have to say that it is super fun, the main story line is pretty good but the game it's self is not very difficult, BUT if you get one of their DLC,s (i forgot what it was called but it was something other than lifeline) it will get difficult QUICK, zombies become diffcult to fight, resorces become scarce, i literally have searched almost all the houses in the entire map and i am so close to repairing the RV to get the scientist and it is NO JOKE, you want a challenge? get this game and all of it's DLC, it's gonna be a gory ride!!
