In a nutshell, this game has tons of potential that it just leaves you annoyed and a little bit unfulfilled.
The PS3 version is ripe with bugs, as evidenced by the score dropping from a 9.3 when i received the game, to a 7.5 roughly as it is now.
There is so much to like about this game it is hard to bash it; the Boderlands meets several top zombie games was a great take, and little things like; the use of a stamina bar, flawless work lighting especially with the flashlight, weapon creation system and mods and much of the scenery are top notch.
But it is all these things that offer you the possibility of such a great experience that leave you that much more frustrated with the end result.
With issues like No manual saving being annoying enough, the autosave feature would often decide to ignore its only job losing many people precious weapons, mods, XP and TIME, which can really take enjoyment out of a game quickly. Other issues include very poor co-op menu that appears promising with the one touch D-Pad join in. Often booting one player, or forcing you to quit if host decides to leave, and no simple add to friend setup for recent games. Not to mention the story and dialogue going severely downhill a few hours in.
Too long didn't read:
Wait till the next patch or two come out, or better yet the sequel and you will get an 8 or 9 rated game, as of now too buggy.

To be honest, I really wasn't into the whole zombie killer RPG... Role playing games dont belong in the zombie genre in my opinion. On the other hand the graphics were amazing! Wish it was a bit more fast pace and a easier buton layout!
I bought this game about two weeks ago. It took me forever to even purchase it. As soon as i bought it, i was in love with it. The graphics are beautiful and it really is like paradise. The peaple looked very real and so did many other things. I like how it seemed realistic. The downfall, glitching and i didnt like how when you drive, you cant look behind you. idk maybe you can but i sure couldnt find a way to do it. I would definitely recommend you buying this game. You can play with your buddies online and its very helpful because they can help you out with missions and trade weapons
