Well I read about this in my PC Gamer recently. George A. Romero's City of the Dead. It has certainly caught my attention. Finall a game with only zombie killling. I hope there is a lil plot to it too. You know more then just kill 30 zombies that have blond hair lol. :)

The graphics could be better. This ain't no Half Life 2 or Doom 3! Should be fun though! :cool:

Here is the Gamespot Preview!

1978 Dawn of the Dead Rules!

Always good to hear from a fellow Romero fan. :cool:

You will soon find out that we're not the only one's on this forum that think the same. ;)

Just watched the trailer... game doesn't "look" great... but I am sure it will still be fun... and it says Tom Savini is in it... you play "as" him? That is awesome... Tom Savini is awesome.

They said there will be both fast and slow zombies. Some crawl real fast on the ground at u then lunge. Think back to Dawn of the Dead when he killed the zombie with the screwdriver. That type of lunge is waht im thinking.

I don't care about graphics... give me a hundred zombies on screen at a time and I will love it ;).

Yeah George Romero's movies have never been about special FX, thats not what made then popular. So really, why should the game be any different?

Just watched the trailer... game doesn't "look" great... but I am sure it will still be fun... and it says Tom Savini is in it... you play "as" him? That is awesome... Tom Savini is awesome.

Yes you do play as Tom Savini in the game. But his character's name (which Tom voices) is William "Red" McLean.

Well I figured we wouldn't play AS Tom Savini... I just meant him being the main character. But that is awesome because Tom Savini is extremely awesome.

I will be disappointed if this isn't awesome. Lovin' the "Dead" quadrilogy. Just saw Land the other night... not as good as the earlier ones in my opinion, but still good. And Tom Savini was in it too. Rad.

Well you do pretty much play as Savini because he voices the character and the character is modeled after him.

Doesn't look any better than Postal 2. I'm more of a graphics kind of guy, sooo I dunno....

This game doesn't look to be fun. Graphics remind of Postal 2. Zombie mod for Hl2 is better :D

How about... no. ;)

Toss in aome AA and AF and it will look fine. It doesnt appear to be playing at the highest resolution anyway. These are early screenshots anyway. It is to include 4 player multiplay. Working together fighting off zombies. This will beat Doom 3 mutiplayer if they can pull it off real well.

I am still waiting for a good zombie mod for Doom 3 and HL2 but I cant find any thats finished. Poor Shame! So its up to Romero. Hopefully its better then Land of the Dead. Bub was the only true smart zombie lol. Beyond that the bs gets too thick. :D
