This game is actually very good, and I'll be buggered if I know why it wasn't more popular than it was. After all, neither the "zombie" or "survival crafting" genres seem in much threat of extinction at this very moment, but, well...maybe the sheer quantity of such gaming experiences is precisely WHY this one got lost in the shuffle.
Really quite the little undiscovered gem, which isn't to say it's a 100% frustration-free romp, but my complaints are relatively few and minor, namely: It's a tad LONG for my tastes (then again, just about all games these days ARE, hahaha); the aiming mechanism is sometimes frustrating (especially with melee weapons, which it's hardly even necessary for); and the night-time sequences, while spooky at first, become increasingly tiresome once you realise all you really have to do is stand next to a camp-fire for ten minutes and you'll be home-and-hosed (though the temptation to wander away and get up some bonus XP is most definitely there, and usually just ended up getting me into needless trouble...but that's just the kinda eejit I am sometimes).
But on the whole, ♥♥♥♥ it, it's pretty darn fun, not without humour and certainly not lacking in hearty bloodshed. Best zombie game since those two that Valve did, that I'VE played at least (and I'll play just about anything with zombies in it, let's face it). Definitely the BEST ZOMBIE GAME SET ON ONE OR MORE DESERTED ISLANDS to be released in recent years (not pointing any fingers at any infinitely better-known and infinitely LAZIER franchises with similar thematics which I could mention, of course)! I'll definitely be playing it again sometime, and if that's not a recommendation, well I'll be a Coco's uncle (sorry, but you might have to play the game to get this little in-joke...go on, you know you wanna)...
