First off, of all my reviews, this is my first Thumbs Down. this review will be updated if things change, but as-is, this will be cancelled before it's ever close to being finished. save your money and run fast, run far.
Got this back in 2013, it went from a very plain buggy mess to a bloated unplayable trainwreck that now runs at like 4fps and heats up my cpu and graphics card. when first purchased, it was playable, albeit very buggy, lots of clipping, lots of falling through the map,now 2-3 engines later they claim it runs smoother than ever,when that's simply not the case. I have an up to date system I built and upgrade myself that plays any triple A title with full settings with ease so this should be cake.
It doesn't help the guy doing their Developers log would rather cheerfully tell us how great it is and tell jokes which is obviously shilling to sell more copies before they tank the project (Because, oh yes... I got a new pop up with a notice about how they reserve the right to stop development.) So it's pretty obvious this is either an ambitious company that bit off more than they could chew, or a total scam with me leaning towards scam because they keep pushing out useless updates that really do nothing to make it playable unless flannel shirts for the zombies is actually a priority, while they keep putting out cheerful videos about how great it all is hoping to sell just another few copies before pulling the plug.
I feel bad because I talked a friend into buying it so we could play as it develped and we got to run around laughing at the bugs before the patch that made multiplayer unusable, which was a couple patches before the entire game became unplayable when they switched to one of their "oh so much better" engines which makes my vid card temp spike near 100 degrees. (Far Cry 4 doesn't even do that... it plays at a smooth 60 degrees.) So I might have helped them milk $20 out of a friend, but maybe I can steer more people away because honestly, I'm kind of ticked about this.
It's a shame because on paper, this could have been a great game, but it's been in alpha so long it's pretty obvious this is going nowhere.
Well, when it worked there honestly wasn't a whole lot to like. cloned identical zombies, choppy clumsy combat, bare untextured buildings, the only plus side was the utopia they promised. in the vid they demonstrated building and fortifying houses, in-game it didn't exist. it used to be an enormous map you could travel for hours in, now the footprint's been reduced to a fraction of that size,
Dislikes: See: likes.
Seriously, just save your money til it's done or canned because $20 2 years ago for a game that went from meh to unplayable is ridiculous. the fact steam still allows this to sell is even more so. they probably don't want to get anywhere near it because once it's removed from the store people will be lining up for refunds once it's obvious this game was never going to happen.
