Going against the flow here, but this zombie game left me dead.
6 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

I bought this game when it first came out and never really got very far. I tried to play it again recently and now I know why, the game is incredibly difficult. The game features you as a photojournalist going to a town because he smells a story. What he finds when he arrives is a town under assault from the undead. He soon gets on the roof of a mall and then must look for survivors and uncover the truth. I would say more, but I could not get very far in this game, suffice to say anyone who can get far without becoming angry and cussing I salute you. I literally have to stop playing as it makes me so mad. The game has a good premise, as it would be a delightful game if it were simplified a bit, but to often your character is killed because of horrible controls. Right near the start you are forced to help some dude take out another guy in the food court and this gunfight was ridiculous. During said fight I kept getting messages from the janitor Otis about other missions and such while I am shooting this guy multiple times with a gun. Seriously, the zombies die if you kick a soccer ball at them, this guy withstood multiple gunshot wounds to the head. The game would be great if only they had not been so focused on all these missions, I am a person that likes to get all the stuff done so I am trying to escort two losers back to the security room and I am being attacked on all fronts by zombies, the arrow keeps leading me further into a mission, and the map is about as useless as an actual mall map. Meanwhile, I can not find a save point anywhere so I end up getting overpowered by zombies my character having consumed all the wine I had stocked up to give him health cause he kept dropping the attacking weapon and as soon as he would the wine takes its place and he drinks it and I am out a super health resource. Meanwhile, Otis the friendly janitor is telling me someone is trapped here, something strange is going on there as zombies are surrounding me on all sides. It was just maddening, I would much rather they have scaled the story back a bit, had fewer escort missions as nothing is more annoying than trying to get a non-player character somewhere and make it so you can find the way back easier and the save points too. Nothing quite so annoying as having to start all over again because they decide they do not want you to be able to save easily and make it so you have to rely on a map that sucks. They could have at least superimposed the map on the screen so you could see where the heck you were going. Had potential for me, but I just do not care for it. Like I said anyone who can play through this one is awesome.
