Storyline

The island of Banoi is a lush, tropical paradise in the South Pacific where its flagship Royal Palms Resort serves as the ultimate getaway for vacationers with money to burn. However, all good things must soon come to an end - and the picturesque resort falls into madness, carnage and chaos after a mysterious and contagious zombie outbreak claims its once peaceful atmosphere. Cut off from the rest of the world, only four individuals who strangely find themselves immune to zombification have the power to protect the remaining survivors from the horrors of the island, to discover what's really going on and find a way to escape before their own fatal ends. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

"Gender Wars", an unlockable skill for the playable character Purna which increases her combat damage against male opponents, was referred to during development as "Feminist Whore". Although changed throughout the game before release, the original name could still be found in debug code on the PC version. Publisher Deep Silver described the line in question as a "private joke" made by one of the developers, and regretted its appearance in the final product. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the game, players combat zombies that, despite being the undead, can be drowned in shallow water. Despite the fact they appear to have a functioning respiratory system, this does not explain how the Infected type zombies (which can also drown) are able to run and scream endlessly without fatigue. This also fails to explain the Floater type zombie which often hides in shallow waters. See more »

Jin: Is this infection all over the island? Jesus Christ. They were caught totally by surprise. This is never going to end is it?

What we've been waiting for.
9 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The good: Heavy customization. You customize and modify your weapons, get to dictate how your character progresses with experience, and get to choose what quests you do and do not want to accept. There is a lot of choice in this game. If you're going' for an apocalyptic game, this one should be high on your list. Unlike games like Left4Dead, this game doesn't tell you where to go and give you a single pathway to follow. You can get help from your little navigator map but that's not required. The bad, for me at least, was the setting. After Left4Dead 2 came out, I was a little worn thin on southern settings. What we really need to see is more downtown cities. A game that delves deep into what most of Americans live by or in... suburbs.. downtowns... highways, etc. A game that thrusts you deep into your comfort zone. Other than that, there are a few glitches still in the game that are a minor nuisance. But, if you're looking for something apocalyptic that forces you to figure out the hard way how to get out of a sticky situation, or how you'll make your plan, this is it. Definitely a thinker, and a bad-ass FPS adventure game.
