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.

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.

BORING!!!!

This game started out to be fun, but after you play for a while, you realize that it is just the same thing, over and over again, and it quickly becomes very boring. You have to search everyone you kill because you need money to upgrade and repair your weapons. The problem is, you can never seem to get ahead because the weapons cost so much to fix after only a few swings, that you are constantly spending all of your money on repairs. The side quests are pretty sad, and sometimes result in very little reward. Guns are available, but they are not very effective, and your ammo is shared between guns, which can be very misleading. For example lets say you have two guns that both use the same ammo. When you look at the guns, they each show six bullets, so you think you have twelve shots, but you dont. In reality, you have six bullets that can be used in either gun. A small pet peeve, but it can be important at times. The graphics are not that great, and there are a lot of visual glitches that just spoil the effects. The environment is not destructible, which really takes away from the fun, and another thing I didnt like, is that resources disappear if you dont take them within a certain time. For example ammunition. You cant carry just ammunition, so you need to have a gun, but once the gun is full, you cant carry the extra ammunition, so you need to leave it lay there. Once you empty your gun and come back, the extra ammunition is no longer there. That just plain stinks. I sent the game back after a few hours of game play, and I think the company is capable of better.
