August 17, 1977
Scattered groups of zombies infiltrate remote Midwestern towns. Incapable of using tools or weapons, the invaders are resisted until they retreat back into the desert. Special elimination posses are set up to hunt down any of the surviving undead. Six weeks after the squads started their search-and-destroy mission, the last known zombie was shot and killed.
Present-day
Over thirty years had passed when a truck driver traveling down a desolate Arizona road plows into a wall of undead. Before the driver's phone signal went dead, he reported some were carrying guns... They're back and now they are hunting us.

Definitely very good game, Top-Down it's not maybe my prefered genre, but I really enjoyed this game. I have just done 100% achievements! It was fun :)

As achievement hunter I can recommend this game too, 'cheevos were challenging and innovative (achievements in this game = ideas of people who play it - you can suggest in steam discussion), but nothing what you wouldn't be able to do, especially when you have some hours behind you. I have finished all achievements in around ~50 hours, all without 3 cows, which means killing 500k, 750k & 1kk zombies and generally it was the most boring part of this game when I have finished everything else (killed ~330 000 when I was done with rest achievs.). Unfortunately Multiplayer will be dead till the end of this year, I had problems now with finding players, sometimes was lucky, mostly weekends evenings.

The game is interesting as it gives you many weapons to use and lots of nice skills (in the end you will use ONLY ak47 or Jack Hammer and skills - PowerUp Hook & Snare, but it took me almost 25 hours to find out that those are most effective :P). Also many game types, all are the same generally and missions were most boring as you just must complete every mission 15 times, what forces you to play 15x 18 missions = boring!!!

Conclusion: The game gave me most fun when I was doing those innovative achievements, first ~50hours.


To creator: if you read it - stop adding achievements, I finished this game once and don't want to come back - at least when you will try to force me with new ones to do xD and seriously: Multiplayer is going to be dead soon, it will be just painful to do. Yes, I'm evil, I'm cruel. Muahahaha. But face the reality and try to bring this game back to life.
