Im not a fan of Zombie games Period; but with the hype of this game, especially if ND makes it, this had to be a game ppl were goin to flock on. If Uncharted series was amazing enough, this: with the setting it made of itself, was a creative success.
The story was set, the play was non stop, you wanted to finish this and there was something else, then you were wanting to know how you got the Tool sets, upgrades, you hunted in EVERY single inch to find items and pieces. This game is our version of reading books and being entertained. it made you think, work, strategise and find the answers for the next part.
Its truly a home run of a game, i give 9 only cause ive never been a zombie gamer. but with ND making the game, graphically, and in producing a movie/story this interesting, its a must work/play.
I hate to say, SEQUEL?? not blowing it up, but ya never know, uncharted got 3 makes. Its not outta the question.
Where can I start with this game? I'll just go through the main parts that makes the game special.
Story: Excellent. The story is dark and mature. The game knows how to through a curve-ball at you when it comes to the story and the gameplay, which I'll explain later. The interactions between grizzled smuggler Joel, and the vulgar 14 year old girl, Ellie, are realistic and intriguing, cutscene or gameplay. Its engrossing to see their relationship grow. Finally the ending will be a topic of conversation for months to come.
Gameplay: Excellent, but not flawless. The controls are something else. They are confusing at first, but you'll get the hang of them quickly. The game relies heavily on stealth to dispatch the infected and stragglers out for your head, because ammo is scarce and the aiming (which is required in order to shoot) is difficult because you get so tense when aiming. It doesn't help that Joel has an unsteady gun-hand. This gives a realistic feeling, and really makes you feel like you are playing "Joel vs. the World." You are also able to craft other weapons like Molotov cocktails and smoke bombs. You can also upgrade your guns and whatnot at certain locations. The problem comes to the AI, the enemies and allies tend to have their stupid moments, but is usually pretty solid.
Multiplayer: Very good and addicting. Its singleplayer, but without story. You play in different factions and make loadouts for battle. Pretty basic multiplayer stuff. You'll get hooked after you finish the story mode.
If you have a PS3, get it. If you have an Xbox or a Wii(U), get a PS3 and then get it. If you can't play M games, make it work. Just get it.
