Very Good

Not what I expected..which wasn't a bad thing

When I rented this game I didn't research it or anything and figured it was a shooter. Within a few minutes of playing it you come to the realization that its just the opposite. I'm guilty of playing a lot of shooters that are mindless and you simply blast your way from beginning to end. It was pretty refreshing to actually get into a storyline and characters as they developed throughout the game. If you're open minded you'll probably enjoy it. The ending was especially interesting to me and it makes me eager for another installment. Having said all that, the graphics are a bit lacking. It reminds me of Borderlands but not quite as crisp and detailed. That detail alone isn't enough for me not to recommend it though.

While the graphics are acceptable and storyline fair I was left feeling like this was an incomplete game.
The whole customized to your choice thing wasnt as big as they make it to be. It requires multiple chapters to really divert but this game is only one chapter. People remember what you said, then end up dead so it makes no difference for this game. Who lives and who dies you get to choose but it doesn't impact this game much. Only when the next one comes will it have an impact.
The game was too short. It left little play value to it. A longer game would have been more enjoyable and catered more to the customized experience.
The game was pretty simplistic and easy to control except for one aspect. When in a time critical situation like zombies in your face don't make me aim with the right stick on a moving target and use A for the action key, they use the same finger. With only one action item option each time it should have let the right trigger button be used.
The game has potential, but overall felt lacking. It was more like a beginners college project than a marketable game for sale.
