State of Decay was a indie hit back in the time of Xbox Live Arcade, probably because of the newly released Dayz Mod. Both games share the third person perspective zombie survival world, with searching for resources and crafting things being core elements of gameplay. State of Decay brings its originality to the mix though, with bases which you have to protect and survivors whom you can bring to said bases and do some quests with. However, State of Decay is also remembered for being riddled with glitches, like zombies clipping through walls, hitting you when you're miles apart, spawning right in front of you, etc. The combat is clunky and your partners have terrible AI. You would think these would be solved in a remaster, but that's not the case here. All this new release brings to the table is better graphics, and that's it. Everything else remains exactly the same. So, overall, State of Decay is a fun game, and if you never played it, why not get the prettier version?
State of Decay is a survival game set in a zombie infested world that differentiates itself from the rest of the genre by also being a roleplaying game that has you taking control of a group of survivors that need to manage relationships and resources. Characters might feel different ways about each other, everyone has influence points that will allow them to take or make use of items they need, characters have different personalities and skills, and anyone can become injured or get killed. The game takes place in a large world that gives you a lot of options and randomized objectives, different characters can be found and ignored or added to your group and you can build up your safe area in different ways. In addition to some graphic and resolution upgrades the Year One Survival Edition also includes the two DLC packs that were added to the original game. This is a great game but if you already own the main version and the expansions it might not be worth getting this new version as technical problems haven't been fixed and the price may not be worth the slightly better look but if you have not played the original this is definitely worth a look.
State of Decay is absolutely amazing, a single player survival game with a nice management sim thrown in the mix. Pick your base, pick your survivors, loot those houses and survive. Can you leave the valley before the inevitable happens? With state of decay year one, you get the base game and the two DLC's, Breakdown and Life Life, it's like getting three games in one. All told I've put a good hundred hours into this game and could see myself putting another hundred before the sequel arrives..
