Sometimes my biggest fear is that I will end alone...
I don't mean alone because I'm not able to find the love of my life
I don't mean alone because all my friends will leave me
I don't mean alone because there will be no more ingredients to make a nice carbonara again
I mean that I will woke up, I will do my things, I will go out and I will find the total absolute nothing.
And the moment when, with all my fears coming true, I will go round the corner...suddenly...the light...
A russian guy that will approach me and he will tell me "No worry my friend...I will teach you how to survive"....
Because this is what will happen in this game
You was planning to spend your summer on a small lonely island full of amazing wonderful girls (if you are a boy) / boys (if you are a girl) / sheeps (if you...well...nevermind) but suddenly a huge octopus will push your ship to hit some rocks and you will end into the luna park of zombies.
But the thing that will really creep you out is not the fact that every step you will do there will be a group of zombies trying to eat you...is the fact that you will find a russian...A SOBER RUSSIAN.
That is a thing that you should really be scared...in fact even the zombies tries to avoid him...remember...if you get bitten by a zombie you become a zombie...if you get bitten or bite a russian...you become a russian.
But apart for this...this is a really really really really underrated game.
Yes I know you will say "IT WAS REALLY CHEAP SO IT IS CRAP!"...no it isn't. Developers put a lot of passion inside this game and you can clearly see that after the last patches.
The game itself is not only improved but they have added some quite good stuff...from weapons to game modes to achievements...all stuff that will make this game more enjoyable day after day.
The gameplay is quite simple and original. It is a mix between a crafting game a survival horror and a RPG.
Crafting because all your weapons, armour, ammo and so on...needs to be crafted.
Survival because you will need to eat, sleep, drink etc...
RPG because you will have a series of skills that you will learn level after level (the stats are automatically leveled up)
The graphic is quite good and there are some interesting effects (rain, fog where you will literally see nothing, lightings etc..).
The main story itself it is quite short yes but all the side quests and the nice number of possibilities about how to deal with some situations will make the game going for a while. Even the new different game modes are a huge plus (survival mode, escape mode or barricade mode...and even a series of challenges with some objectives).
There are even several types of zombies...some of those only appears during night....and so be advised...only predators live at night...
Very nice thing is that you can make all this thing alone or co-op. And we all know that with a friend everything is better.
What else can I say? Do you have few coins to spend for a game that is original and will give you several quite good hours of fun alone but even more hours of fun with friends? Buy this game.
Are you looking for a zombie RPG where you will have to spend 10.000 hours only for the tutorial? Well this is not the game for you then.
HTS is a simple but very fun and original game. If you find it on sale don't think about it, just get a couple of copies for you and your best gaming buddy and you will be not disappointed.
