    Who has heard of this game? This game looks totally insane. Graphics and story line... so nuts!

    I can't wait for more information on it. It looks like it might be a must buy imo.

    Bump!!

    This is getting mixed reviews... i'll still be bagging it tommorow, as, although it looks like it has flaws, i think i'll enjoy it. Those who already have it, thoughts?

    My friend has it, and its fun. People are just mad because the game is kind of like fallout and borderlands, where you do little quests and all that. It's not linear at all.

    It seems like mostly a melee game which seems a little strange for the style. There are guns, but they are limited.

    This will be another one that I'll probably wait for a bargain over. With Dark Souls, Batman, Battlefield, Skyrim, and COD around the corner it's tough to fit these in.

    Is there a decent story to it? Did the graphics live up to the hype?

    According to some gameplay videos I've seen, one reason why I think its getting mixed reviews is because it is on a slower pace than the Left 4 Dead series and 1/4 of the time consist of looting money from other "dead" tourist. This game does have a plot which you have to follow through unlike the L4D series. Still looks interesting so I'd probably rent it first.

    I think it's an awesome idea, Borderlands with zombies, but it seems a bit slow paced and monotonous, at least from the videos I've seen. I'll probably pick it up when it gets cheaper.

    I don't think it is anything like borderlands.

    Good thing I can get a copy for free. I was expecting something similar to Left4Dead. We'll see at some point I guess.

    there will always be mixed reviews, different people like different things. I used to listen to reviews but not anymore. I just try things out myself now and make my own decision.

    Purna is the worst character to play as during Act 1. As a Guns oriented character you'll feel out of place in the world for the first 10 hours of the game. Even after you obtain your first gun as a quest reward it'll only come with 1 bullet with no ammo in sight for another 6 hours. You'll be smashing clubs, pipes, and machetes over zombie skulls waiting for the sun to finally shine on your superior firepower.

    Halfway into Act 2 you'll finally gain access to guns. Not from shops but from enemies scarcely scattered around the island, so sit tight.

    -Looting
    -Skill Tree
    -Experience System
    -Lots of weapons with in depth stats

    Lots of people including the developers themselves compare the game to Borderlands.

    Was playing it last night for a good portion of the night with my girl and one of her friends. Enjoyed it alot... except when they'd leave me to a hoard of zombies and run off to the truck giggling.
