i am a huge fan of zombies and rpgs and sort of open world games but this was the slowest paced game i have played, on top of that u almost never touch a gun as far as i have gotten into the game. i would not buy this, or rent it.....plain terrible you want a good zombie game thats funny and have action rent dead rising 2, old but far better gameplay in my opinion

not playable offline

I am a huge fan of zombie games thanks to the classic Resident Evil and I thought this would be awesome to play til I put the game in and told me I was not connected. I think all games should be playable on and offline because not everyone likes to play online.

wow this game is sexist!

Ok…. So you start out riding in the head of a total sexist guy the opening is the playing getting drunk and pissing off women in skimpy clothing. Some pretty thick sexism.

I'm really sick of playing sexist guys that I'd rather kill than get through a video game world.

I mean the drunk effect is cool and all. I'm all for drug effects.

Oh… I can play as 1 of 4 characters.

So far nice fps controls and play.

Opening mission was ok…

Ok…. So where is the weapon?
Way to not make it obvious…. That's a great change of pace from highlighting everything and telling me where to go….. Ugh.

Smashing zombies with a paddle was fun. Though the story seems to be all sorts of annoying…. Also…. I hope I'm not the person from the hotel who's supposedly immune…. Or whatever. Because they have two female character choices. And they were referring to the guy from the hotel. Which sounds like me if it made sense to use male pronouns to refer to my female character.

So now I'm not sure that they even took the time to make the dialog work for both genders… figuring the guys playing would prefer male pronouns even if they're playing a female character. 'cause girl gamers don't really exist….?

This game's sexism and linear game-play may just ruin it for me. I guess boys really need sexism and linear game progression…. I'm about done with this game…
