Has good potential...

This game has quite a bit of potential to be a great game but has some definite issues that make it nearly unplayable at times. The biggest problem is that the zombies are way too overpowered and you and your allies or questions mates that lead you are too underpowered. The best example of this is in the much later quest 'pure blood' where you and the shaman ope have to travel to his sacred burial grounds where you need to get an item are at. On the way there you have to kill a highly overpowered group of about 6 walkers, a thug, and a butcher. I'm currently on my 127th retry (I counted specifically for this reason) and still cannot get past all of them. Mainly because if you kill any one of them they come back as opposed to staying dead on the next try if you or the shaman dies. This has made the game extremely frustrating as well as many other times where there are numerous occasions where I die or the quest is failed. Hopefully this is either remedied or at east taken note of. Buyers beware

Worst game ever!!

I tried to enjoy the game, the graphics are cool. but the limitations made the game weak, kick with one leg, swing with one arm LAME. And I couldn't finish because when I gathered all supplies for a challenge the people would not talk to me to help me progress and that is why I give this game a total of 4/10 because I found this game LAME.

Interresting story, too much giltchs

Like always something is too good to be true, i have to say the giltching was the major problem of the entire game not the story. i had my shares of giltchs but i believe these were the worse, i freeze up during car travelin in the resort in multiplayer and today (11/20/11) i was having a hard time getting on my friends game, and i heard about the blood on the window even though the window was smashed, it happend to me as well. The auto save was annoying, but i never lost anything during it (cause i tried to beat it quick), and i never have the person or survivor was missing but you can hear him or her. all in all it was a great game till the last boss (i'm not going to spoil it). i would not recommend buying it, but renting is alright.
