Ever wondered how you would handle being a castaway on a zombie infested island with no foreseeable way out? How to Survive is a third-person action adventure game that equips players to stay alive in a world where the outbreak of an unknown virus has turned most of the population into zombies.
How to Survive puts players in the center of the action as someone who, after an accident, finds themselves on an island amidst a small archipelago off the coast of Colombia … but there are other inhabitants. In order to make it through the day and night, gamers must learn to fulfill the most basic of needs, such as seeking food, water and shelter, as well as crafting dozens of tools and weapons from fishing rods to Molotov cocktails. There is nothing quite like being surrounded by a zombie-infested archipelago!
Players explore four different islands filled with unique flora, fauna and a variety of flesh-hungry zombies and mutations.
A robust crafting system allows gamers to combine numerous weapons, tools and more.

This game takes the fun melee combat of Dead Island and mixes it in with some true Macgyver-style crafting and scavanging while surviving as the only survivor of a shipwreck on an island crawling with not just the undead, but also other survivors and wild life. You will have to take good care of your hunger, thirst and energy as unlike Dead Island and similar games, you actually have to make sure you stay well fed and hydrated while also sleeping for a few hours every now and then, otherwise you will end up with little to no energy while fighting the zombies and that means less damage is dealt. Also, there are slightly more horrific zombies that only come out at night, but these are thankfully very sensitive to light so if you have a torch or flashlight, you will be able to keep them as far away from you as possible. Of course, you are able to craft your very own weapons and armor from the stuff you can find around the islands and these makeshift items will provide a much needed edge in your struggle to survive and maybe even escape these crazy islands. The game is also best played with the Xbox-360 gamepad for Windows as it uses a control system not unlike games like Renegade Ops and such, as in that you move with the left stick and aim with the right stick.
Very enjoyable game!firehandpl | Nov. 9, 2013 | See all firehandpl's reviews »
When I heard about this game first time, I was really happy. I am in love with horror games, especially with those about zombies :). How to Survive have fully satisfy me. This game is very fun to play, it's graphic is good, it's also well optimised. On my 5 years old pc it worked on medium settings with 60 fps all the time. Storyline of this game is quite good, but it didn't have any twists or anything I wasn't expecting. It wasn't also that long, it took me 9 hours to pass whole game with Kenji, my favourite character. Even though I passed the game, I still want to play some more, because the are different skill trees for all characters, so you can complete game a few times and you won't be bored. 11$ for that much of fun and joy is nothing.

It's very addictive, the skill system, creating objects and basic survival cool. The trouble is that the missions are repetitive, the story does not engage and the technical section is discrete. positive: The game focuses on feeling like a survivor animals hunting and cooking, creating weapons, seeking refuge ... negative: The objectives and development are limted history is rare and technically obsolete. The Zombie Survival Guide, have focused their stories to give us the key to survive in case of a hypothetical zombie apocalypse.

When I see this game announce to pre-order.I think "Survival Zombie game again?".I'm very bored about Zombie game I guess it too much and many zombie title games in the market.And all of them is not difference gameplay.
After I see video about gameplay in this game.I change my mind and purchase it.It's the good gameplay system survival game.
The big point to make me purchase this game is gameplay system that you can mix item to craft the weapon and armor such as gun , boomerang ,axe , armpad , armor . if you change some part that make your gun make more damage. Skill tree in this game is good.you can choose your skill to make you play easier such as less hungry,less thirsty , make more motolov,ignite ETC.The quest and sidequest in this game are good.They're not too easy or too hard and has many thing to do.
After I finished this game with Kenji I meet the bad point in this game that I don't like is some weapon can make a big damage to zombie.If you can crafted it, the game is easier than usual ( that I hope the developer will adjust this again when the full game is come)

How to Survive is, at it's core, a true Zombie survival game. In the story mode of how to survive you play as one of 3 (or 2 of 3 if you are playing Co-op mode) survivors as you wake up with amnesia on an unknown island. Now the story isn't anything special, its just a segway so you have a reason to do the things you do. where the game shines is it's mechanics. As you progress through the island, you find different survivors and books titled "Kovac's Rules" kovac, an expert survivor, left these book chapters scattered along the island for you or other survivors to find so they have a better chance at survival. In these books they show you how to survive and craft. In the game, you can find different parts or ingredients scattered along the island, in sheds, on the ground, and on dead bodies. these parts may not seem like much on their own, but you can craft them to make weapons, armor, and supplies. Now i was a little disappointed at the lack of ingredients, now there is enough so it isn't dull, but i expected more combinations and such. You also have to eat, drink, and sleep in the game to avoid stat loses and possible death. For drinking you need to find freshwater or wells, eating you need to find plants, food, or hunt, and to sleep you need to clear camps so you can sleep without the danger. Overall the game shines in it's mechanics, but falls short in some areas like story. But it is a welcome change from the regular left-4-dead esque zombie game. This game is well worth the 10.49 and even 15 dollar price tag, the story, along with the online coop challenge mode will sure to give you plenty of fun.
