Hello there peoples of Steam, i am Shadowthingey and today i am gonna review The Dead LInger. Being in alpha stage there are infact problems mostly regarding peformance and world creation. even though the world in generated quite nicely little things are messed up such as trees being spawned inside houses or in the middle of roads.Peformance is sometimes low, but with patches this has been helped, just watch out for cornfields they will bring your PC to it's knees.Finally there is no blood or dismemberment at the moment.
Now for the good, the game is an open world sandbox zombie simulation! Yes people may think of Day-Z, but this game removes the rediculousness of that and truly is all about survival. You can find shelter in suburbs or a cabin in the woods, but the infected know where you are so you better board up your windows and block the enterances with furniture.
Multiplayer is a very nice aspect of this game, and with more updates it will only get better because as of now there is only 1 player model and 1 zombie model making it pretty repetitive, however we should expect a randomly generated zombies with a future update.
Graphics in this game are nice, personally my PC isn't all that, but my experience visually has been pleasing; there is grass covering the ground, many trees of different size and color spread across the beautiful North American landscape with farms, office buildings, hills,suburbs and forest with amazing sun beams cutting through the leaves. Rain occurs every now and then with thunder to bring the mood down and the cycle between night and day is smooth and nearly seamless. The only negatives i have found visually is the shadow quality is not the best, but there is some great dynamic lighting effects to make up for it.
So my final verdict? The Dead Linger as of now in Alpha is... 8/10
Being that it is in alpha i expected the few shortcomings it has, but TDL is definetly a great investment because updates are only going to make it better.
Well there is my opinion peoples of Steam, hope you enjoyed my review and maybe you will get TDL, and if so you enjoy it.See you on another review
