This is probably the best zombie apacolypse game ever created. I mean the shear realism of it is just one of the things that makes it as good as it is. The other thing that makes this game amazing, is the analog stick fighting control scheme (which is optional) and makes your combat aproach more tactile. If theres a zombie sprinting head on at you, just pull down and rip up and splat. You've got yourself a nice clean less stamina costful attack. Or if there is a walker shuffling towards you, just pull back a little and swing to the left or right and you,ve just made yourself a crater in the git's head. Finally there comes the graphics and I am the first to always say "don't judge the game by it's graphics" but in this case, yes. The graphics make this game what it is, and that is days upon days of gameplay. In my book it's a keeper and I hope that whoever decides to read this thinks so too.

Analog combat is the way to go.

This isn't so much a review as a suggestion to people who just jump right in and start playing. Try changing the combat from digital to analog in the options setting. A little bit harder, but much more rewarding.

Pretty decent game. If you enjoyed borderlands, or just want a good time with three other friends, give it a shot. It really isn't worth your time unless you do plan on playing with friends though, it becomes a bit too difficult to play alone.
