This game is crap. If this was developed on the PC separately then they have no business developing PC games. FOV is crap, it makes me sick to my stomach to play. The controls blow, the graphics suck... the vasoline filter is strong with this one and AA looks to not work. Mouse sensitivity is majorly jacked.

These developers are trying to kill PC gaming... COJ the cartel came out and that is awful too. I've been looking forward to some of these games for what seems like forever. Deus Ex is excellent, but these other games suck so much on the PC I can't believe someone stamped these as done and expected to collect their $60 without people complaining.

Played with a friend today for about 5 hours using Hamachi cause the mp portion is broken, but this game is very addicting and fun.

This game is awesome. I think it looks great while playing (ss don't do it justice) and is tons of fun. I love the atmosphere. I just got into act 2, i played the entire way with my GF. Is it perfect? No but other then the total **** of a network code the gameplay itself doesn't have too many issues an is a total blast. It's a larger world then borderlands and crysis with more freedom then either of them.

Srs??? O.o


Cuzz I've always dreamed of having my own zombie family, with a bloody hawt zombie wife, and a braindead zombie son I'd name Bam-Bam. And we'd also have a braindead zombie poodle named "UDawg".

Could I live this fantasy in this game?

Played some more last night and glad I'm not letting the graphics get to me, a lot of fun to be had in this game.

No issues but one, at the gas station in act 2 if I die I respawn on the other side of the area. Minor inconvenience.

Some of the quests are challenging, some are just wth stupid -

"Bad teddy bear!" Really?!?! Ya Rly

Weapons degrade too fast even upgraded, but there's no shortage of items to use so that's a wash.

Thugs are a royal p.i.t.a. unless there's a propane tank nearby or you have a moli. There's always the option to just go around them too.

The story line....ya right, ain't one This is all about how creatively you can kill zombies.

Rather enjoying it now.
