Ok, so usually I'm not into GTA mission based type game. I usually don't ever have enough time to get interested, but this game is different. I guess it's the fact that you get to bash zombie heads from the start and put together interesting weapons with items you find ( I haven't seen the ingenuity to make bombs out of misc. objects like that since my last deployment to Iraq lol). Not to mention the story is pretty well put together and the graphics are top notch. All in, I'm very impressed with this game and it's one of the few besides COD of course, that I'll actually spend a good amount of time playing. Outstanding work Square Enix, ya'll put together a good one.
The gameplay is fast and furious, reminiscent of Borderlands in multiple ways (skill tree, weapon drops, heart pounding messy deaths including your own which result in 10% less money) , and yes there are some graphic glitches that can be annoying, but at least it doesn't FREEZE! There is nothing more annoying than games that freeze at random points. If that happens, I send it back, no matter how fun the game is.
The sound effects are awesome! Never had so much fun killing zombies! The environments are pretty good, realistic, detailed. Lots of loot to collect, tho more than half of the junk you pick up isn't used except for weapon mods. There is lots to do and see, and unless you only do main quests, you will spend lots of time on this game and enjoy 95% of it. Once you get used the timing of swinging your weapon around, it becomes an effective and fun way to mutilate your enemies. Voice acting is well done, tho with a couple cheezy tearjerker moments. Definitely one of my top game choices for 2011, even with the bugs. FUN!!!
I have played few zombie games before, always been a HUGE fan of zombie movies, not the games. I will just put that out there.
This game started out fantastic, there was a story within the intro and you were alone within your own room where everything looks ok. But wait... there is chaos outside of your room.
I really liked the fact that you could choose your character for the game and that they had special skills. Also some of the realism when in melee combat with a zombie; heads exploding, limbs sliced off...but thats where it ended.
I dont know how to put my finger on why I didnt like this game a whole lot. Maybe there were just too many pointless and repeditive missions and objectives to accomplish. There needed to be a different way to really combine the story with a flow, there was no flow. Just jumping from place to place helping those who dont need help.
