Having played the original game, and comparing it to this, I never recall the first one being this bad. The controls are sluggish to respond, as is moving around, driving, running, etc. The combat is flawed, you may swing and miss a zombie constantly. The zombies are extremely overpowered, with a solo zombie possibly killing you with two hits. The graphics, while very nice, seem uninspired. There isn't a central theme to tie it in like Banoi hotel. Also, I began the game with sound, and it cut out 5 minutes in, and I verified it was the game by playing a movie and game trailers. This happened each time I reloaded my game. The checkpoints were terrible as well. I had to run out of an area to get the next checkpoint moving. Characters would stand there and speak the same words until I left the area to trigger the next part. I really never had a game infuriate me as much as this one, and I loved the first game.

This game is very fun when playing with friends and at times very tense and scary when played alone. Game has receive alot of negative press and it is not deserved.

This game is the same as the first just a few minor changes and a different location. I felt extremely bulky walking around the island. running into everything and constantly being hit from the back by a horde of zombies. I did really like how you had the same character selection as in the first, because Sam B is a boss. Its a decent game but i really much enjoyed the first far more than this game.
