If you're expecting a run-and-gun, don't rent this, save it for someone who wants it. That said, this was probably the best story I've ever seen in a video game. The drama was real and had a sense of urgency, unlike any game (and the walking dead show, for that matter) has offered so far. You may lose sleep over how you could have avoided the horrible things you witness in this game. The only reason I gave this any less than a perfect 10 is because of one instance where I had to reboot because of a crash. other than that, easily the best game I've ever played for story and in the top 3 overall.
I'll close by saying this: Before I played this game I had romantic ideas about a zombie apocalypse; i'd just "hole up somewhere" with my best buds and some weapons and be safe. I don't feel that way anymore.

I wish i could take my hour and a half back. Super lame, if I wanted to READ I'd grab a book. This game is lame in the simple fact that your reading and not actually playing more than half the time. Lets face it, we PLAY games to PLAY for entertainment. This lacks all entertaining and engaging aspects. I'm seriously curious why this game got such high reviews. Prob the worst game I've rented in 10 years!
