Bad

Game was not what I expected

The game at the start was extremely boring and made me feel very bored, plus there was no online play (obviously) to get out of the boredom.

If you are an online fan, dont get it. If you like to be bored get it.

Camera issues

The game is fun to play my only issue is the camera angles which can be a drag the shooting could use a little work as well, but other than that I only recommend renting the game unless your big fan of resident evil, silent hill etc.

when you first put this game on your gonna be impressed with the graphics,their pretty good , alot better than i was expecting.but i`m afraid that`s as good as it gets.
what lets this game down so badly are the controls, to put it bluntly they plain suck.i got to the end of episode 2 then just couldnt handle it any more, i got a headache, i mean literally had a headache. the controls are to stop start and jerky, they kinda reminded me of the original tomb raider controls from 10 or so years ago.bad camera makes it hard to see, you have to make sure your on the right line for everything,stop adjust character move camera , you cant do it on the run.
combat also sucks, to hit a zombie you have to hit the d-pad left and right, it`s just to much work.then once you do get the zombie its only really dead once you`ve burnt it, which brings me to my next complaint, what the heck is up with all the fire in this game, it`s everywhere, buildings burning, having to burn all the zombies, even combining bullets with fire to shoot firey bullets, give me a break.
this could have been such a cool game, the graphics alone kick butt over alot of 360 games.
if you can get past the bad controls then you`ll probably enjoy this game, but you shouldnt have to put up with bad anything for $60, thank god for gamefly
