    So the game is good? You get it for PC or console?

    Graphics are awesome, aren't they?

    I am really thinking about picking it up. It looks awesome but VERY slow paced.

    Its for PC as well as Consoles,I would say the game is okay only,later I got bored of killing the zombies and the graphics are not what I expected.But multiplayer would be fun.And I will give you a hint i.e. kick the zombies in the face when they come running after you.It always works.:p

    ok so after a major weekend stolen from me coz of this game i shall say wow its a long game haha werth the 120 bucks, still not complete yet aswell.. i suggest choosing the sharp weapon person as they would be most useful, when zombies come at you normally kick them, then attack that way you have room, when they come at you at full pace have like a machete or something sharp and time your swipe coz at full running speed their heads fly also the thugs seem hard but again a sharp weapon cut off there arms in a timely fashion and they are easy to take down as there attacks are not as good after that.. i have recently how ever got into act two (in the town) and relized how strong the zombies are very strong, if you dont instantly react you are dead, i had just taken out like 5 including one of those big charger things but one zombie from a distance ran and in 3 or 4 hits i was dead. so yea over all great game so far love the modded weapons (RIPPER!!!) and i have a feeling this game will steal more of my time

    I have reached the light house till now. Hmm, I was expecting horror but its easy till now. Quite slow but fun. But I expect action as I go on in the game.
    I chose a guy with hitting weapons, not sure what they are called example knifes, metal pipes. Any one knows how to get a gun :gun: for him?

    Think I am gonna pass on this one, seems like it isn't living up to the hype.

    Yeah i would say give it a miss,So far i have found it to be very boring. :eek:

    The thing that also annoys me about this game,In one of the trailers it shows Multi Layer Damage System, that you can hit certian parts of the face and parts fall off....ive not seen this in the game yet and if it is there it looks nowhere near as good as in this clip.

    I hate the GTA games, and this game seems like an exact clone but on an island with zombies. Are all the characters unilateral and one dimensional? Is it just a bunch of recycled variations of the same old quests?

    From what I read, this game is one that I will buy when it is on a steam super sale, for $10 or less.

    Well, as usual i seem to be in a minority when i say that i absolutely love this game. Getting so much fun out of it at the moment. Its HUGE and has a massive variety of environments. All the good aspects of L4D and Borderlands combined into one - with a better atmosphere than either game.

    9/10 from me.

    It was mentioned awhile back that they were going to get rid of this since the test runs they had with people it seemed as though the people weren't paying attention to multi-layer damage.

    That and the rendering time seemed to take too long or something.

    Or it was a marketing stunt

    I haven't played this game on the PC yet, but my friend owns it on the Xbox 360 and I've tried it on there. It plays like a mix between Fallout 3/New Vegas, and Borderlands. The Skill-trees are similar to Borderlands in you have 3 different main trees that branch down, and the quests are much like Borderlands "Run here, kill this, return here" kindof quests. The looting system though is much like Fallout, where you click on the bodies to see what each one has on them, take what you want and leave the rest.

    It's not as good as everyone was hyping it to be, but if you're a fan of Action RPG's, and Zombies it's worth a shot. Personally I loved Borderlands, and I love zombies. So, I'll give the game a 7 out of 10.

    Not for everyone though.

    Next game I'm really waiting for is Rage. :p

    Finally got a chance to install it on my desktop. So far I'm disappointed. I suppose I was expecting more of a Left4Dead kind of experience.

    I figured it would be a lot of boring recycled quests from every other game out there, like go here and kill this, then bring me back this type of thing. Which is in every game and frankly I get easily bored of the same old recycled content.
