Dreadful game and a cheap cash in

Okay so this game was developed in less than eight months and was released when series three of the tv show was being transmitted and here's a list of why this game is bad:

Terrible graphics - Very dated and ugly to look at

The main focus is finding gas for your vehicle and other supplies which is ideal for a survival zombie game but it's just tedious and dull

Gameplay is some of the worst I've played in a good while. Melee combat is you punching a zombie in the face 3 times until they simply fall over. Alternatively, you can sneak up on them and stab from behind, watching the same animations over and over and over and over... If you get grabbed by a zombie, expect a good gangbang out of it every time. As you kill each zombie with a QTE, a new zombie will immediately take its place, and you will keep killing them with the same QTE over and over until either your or them are dead. Simply boring and repetitive

You're also given a gun, which of course you want to avoid using due to walkers being attracted to the sound. Unfortunately, the gun is a bolt action rifle, which forces you to empty the chamber every time you fire, which gives up precious time you need in order to reload. So the weapons overall, are clunky, awkward, and unrealistically weak.

The only thing I liked about this game is that you pick up members to join you in your survival and you can send them out to find gas, food, ammo, etc. You'll have to divide up what weapons you have among them and if you give them a rubbish weapon they will mostly die. It's a cool concept but they never pick up more than two things (usally some bullets and maybe some canned food)

Buy Dead Island Riptide instead
