Hack - Slash - Repeat

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.

Beggers cant be choosers. It was ok.

The game and graphics itself is pretty sweet, it is like boarderlands, one character is good at a specific thing> Like Sam B is good with Melee weapons, I forgot the others names(I just like sam B) one is good with guns, the other is good with throwing knives. However there is a known Save Glitch so be careful

(this is my 1st review cut me some slack)

It had a chance at being great...

The game started out great. But then came the glitches, slow frame rate, major save issues. Then a patch came thinking it would make it all better, but nope, only worse. The game had a chance to be so great, but it fell so short.
