Is anyone else playing? I hope it sells well so we get the online co-op added, though idk how real that possibility is.
Anyways I gotta run some errands so taking a break after a 4 hour marathon. Feel like I just barely bit into the game after 4 hours. The survival aspect is truly unmatched in anything I have played in a single player setting. The fact that you are leveling up your character and that if he/she dies then they stay dead and you have to start on someone else, really gives you a connection to the character and a real desire to keep them alive. It makes zombie ambushes and sticky situations all that more tense.
The story is only just now starting to seep in and I think I will enjoy it. There is a lot of potential there, though I read in the IGN review that the ending kind of sucks. But the writing is good and the dialogue seems about as natural as it can be considering the setting. Overall it feels better than most $60 retail titles and it only costs 1600 Allards ($20). So check it out if you love zombie games and want something new. One amazing zombie game for PS3 and one for 360 as well. Good times for zombie fans.
