Summary

A cool little game and a must for zombie fans. The whole scavenging part of the game is absolutely nailed and has such a tense frantic feel to it. The random nature of the traveling an interacting with your team is straight out of Organ trail, Not a bad thing at all as it takes but also builds upon it and has you dealing with a lot more variety and choice than ever before. Local co-op is nice but online would of been a lot better. In short, it is a decent game that nails the atmosphere but RNG can ruin the game before it begins.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
