This game's excuse for gameplay is no fun. Killing zombies takes at least 3 or 4 hits to knock one out. You will spend your time rocking a melee weapon way more than guns or other weapons. And the characters you represent are quite lifeless, the story is boring. Oh and the graphics, don't even get me started.
I give this title a 9(8.5 would have been fine before they patched game breaking bugs)
Loved this game. I love the horror genre, and this is the first title in over 10 years to really get my heart pounding. Ubisoft did a fantastic job creating tension so thick you can cut it with a knife.
Two Reasons people give the game a bad score:
1. Brutally difficulty... this shouldn't be a knock but a positive. Yes the punishment is steep for death. So plan your attacks and moves carefully and thoughtfully.
2. Its not CoD... People need to rate games as what they are supposed to be, not what they wish it was. You are not going to run and gun and mow down zombies... in fact if you go up against 2 zombies at once, chances are you are going to join them. This game is supposed to be a survival horror game, not a first person shooter. Take it for what it is. A game of stealth, planning and ammo conservation.
Go into the game with an open mind and come out with a rewarding experience.
The game is just to boring and slow paced not to mention the game is really hard. you can die at anytime i also dont really see the point in making you be someone else (character wise) when you die if you start out in the exact same place everytime you die...its kind of stupid. I just didnt like the game at all.
