I loved this installment, and waited a long time for it. I loved the first game as well, even though firearms were few and far between. I didnt mind that, I always beileved in the middle of a zombie apocolypse, how often would you actually find a firearm? Me I personally use melee and upgrade and mod them, much easier to deal with. I loved the amount of detail and care went into this game. The developers really listened to the gamers and adjusted accordingly, while keeping the classic feel from the first game. With the option to import your character from the first game is also very great, they did make a whole new character for us. So all in all this game is great zombie slashing, fire starting down right dirty, game that I love.
I'm still in the process of playing it but I like it so far, although there are some glitches and when in multiplayer mode me and my friend froze once but not since. It is repetative but it's fun and worth playing over and over in my opinion if you just want to waste time.
