Reviews for State of Decay

lots of potential but still very good

While this game got some backlash for going "YOSE" I still feel like this game is worth the money especially since you get all of its DLC. Pros: >For a game that was put out in a rush, its a very unique game that accomplishes what other game could not. >Large map with TONS of lootable buildings, camp sites, ect. Its safe to say that 99% of the buildings are lootable. >Fun and dynamic base building with several choices to where you can set up your base. >Has a good mix of challenging and relaxing moments. >You can play as any survivor you rescue or meet. >has a good mix of different types of missions so your not always doing the same thing. >Has a huge variety of guns (uses the names of real guns) and melee weapons along with many types of ammo, grenades, food/snacks, vehicles, and distraction items. >Fun DLC that adds many more hours of gameplay. >Has replay Value Cons: >The game still has bugs but none that i found were unbearable. >Zombies keep respawning in looting areas despite already killing them. >Has a cap on what can fit in storage but iv only hit it once and im a huge pack rat. >Cant keep playing after you finish the main story missions. >Have to reset the game every time you want to switch to DLC. >No multiplayer (although State of Decay 2 is fixing that) I feel like this game is a must if your a zombie survival fanatic like myself.

Fun Single player Zombie Surivor game

Great Zombie survival game that keeps you on your heels and is very challenging. Your people keep living even when your not playing. The ability to add new members to your group and grow it is fun and needed because your going to lose people, don't get attached. My only complaint is the lack of coop or multilayer support.

Zombie games aren't dead!

Zombie games have been beaten to death (pun intended)! There are probably more of these than zombie movies at this point and even there are tonnes of those. And then along comes State of Decay and say's, "Hey look at me, I'm awesome!" And it right! This proves that you don't need hoard modes to make zombie games good! Just an open world and a story and you have yourself a kickass game! If you're hesitant to buy this, just do it! Seriously! Sink in the hours and you'll end completely satisfied!

An awesome, kinda dumb, zombie open world game.

Two perspective. Being awesome: The game is awesome and probably one of the best open world game out. There are zombies, the need of scavenging supplies, finding survivors and finding a potential home. It's all good and decent. And it's open world. You can go wherever you like and scavenge wherever you like. Probably one of the best implementation of the open-world survival zombie game concept. The zombies can also overrun you especially if there's a horde. My companion actually got killed, torn apart, like his body was split into two and that was horrifying sight to see, so settle with a car. ALWAYS. Being dumb: AI is pretty dumb, they cannot use cars, like they have to jog from your home to a scavenge post 2000m away from them. They run into zombie horde and can get killed unless you help them. There are few to almost non-existent zombie invasion to your home (I got hit once). The neighbors suck so much. They cannot fend for themselves, and they're mostly ignored by zombies (I mean there's this one neighbor, his place is getting swarmed by zombies, and he's there standing right in the middle of their territory where he could get killed. The story is quite dumb too and too light in my opinion. There are side quests throughout your neighbors but it's just too few. There are also no hostile survivors in which I wanted to see like they invade your home for supplies and such. Overall, the game is awesome, unique and fun. They deserve a high rating.

Surprisingly Awesome

State of Decay is ugly. Let's just get that out of the way. I mean really ugly. I have a powerful machine and sometimes the framerates chug and the screen tearing is out of this world. Zombies (called Zeds in the game) will fall through the scenery and there are weird bugs abound. None of that matters this game still will rock your socks. This is the perfect open-world zombie apocalypse survivor sim. If that is what you are looking for look no further. You have to lead a group of survivors whom you can switch between (there is no main character) level up with different skills and keep everyone happy, healthy and fed. It is difficult, frustrating and even heartbreaking. There is serious perma-death you can lose characters whom you have spent hours leveling up if you get too cocky. You can choose a variety of specialties and the game does all of them relatively well. You can level up a variety of skills in order to make a diverse set of characters, from sharpshooters to brawlers to sneaky scavengers and everything in between. There is just enough story to keep things interesting but if you are looking for a strong story driven narrative this is maybe not the game you are looking for. If you use a mouse and keyboard I can't speak for their efficiency but the controls with an Xbox controller work well. Overall, in an over-saturated zombie market this game stands above pretty much everything else.
