i seriously have played better this game is playable but not one you wanna play. why? because it sucks i have read reviews here saying that its great and its like borderlands and left 4 dead! yeah those people obviously never played those games it is nothing like left 4 dead especially borderlands the graphics are bad for a ps3 and xbox 360 games. there are many bugs like the sky will flicker black in cut scences, and the driving is also bad you sit one the wrong side of the seat and you only get to see thru half of the windshield which is very frustrating especially when the roads are small and full of cars!!! and just now when i was playing i was on chapter 10 or 11 i fought some zombies and died and i lost all my weapons i couldn't even punch anymore AND this is almost a rpg game yeah you level up, the perks are nice but could be better and every time youb die you lost some of your money and the weapons you get in this game BREAK! which is HORRIBLE! when i play a zombie game i dont want my weapons to break or go on quests yeah there are quests! go get left 4 dead for your computer if you dont have a 360 and get borderlands but not this BAD game its terrible!

I want to start with a disclaimer. Im not a big zombie game fan so im not going to say its not good just on that opinion. As usual, i had to redbox it. Way more reliable than waiting and hoping to be one of the few that get a new release. I only spent about an hour before work so i will spend more time later.
First off. Graphics. Id say the graphics are adequate. I dont see what first rating was saying about ps2. Its very not that. What was an issue for me was the uninteractiveness of the environment. Literlly nothing can be moved or interacted with. But other than that i give this a passing grade graphically.
Second. Sound. This was a major step down from the graphics imo. Besides the seagull background noise i found the sound quality somewhat lacking.
Controls worked well And game engine did a good job. No laggy or glitchy framerates. A big dud so far is the writing and voica acting. Oh boy. "He saved your life. You owe him your life". Seriously??!! Dialog is goofy. I will pmay more later and maybe rescore but so far its just an ok game.
