Which do you think will be the better zombie apocalypse game: the recently-released World War Z co-op game or the upcoming Days Gone? Which one, if either, are you planning on getting?
While I wasn't a big fan of the movie-plot holes galore (and there were a TON of plot holes, which YMS' review covered in depth), stealing the name of a great book (which is literally all it uses from the book), bland characters (especially the family) and neutered, incoherent zombie scenes-I must admit the game looks rather fun despite it clearly being a third person L4D. One of the few things I liked from the movie, the zombie pile-ups, is also present in the game, and for a $40 price tag, it sounds like quite the bargain. However, the online-only aspect of it kinda gives me pause, and according to Jim Sterling's review, it's also filled with glitches and bugs.
Days Gone takes that same zombie horde concept of the WWZ game and movie, except it actually has a story to it, so it sounds like a more complete product, albeit at a full $60 price tag. The fact that Sony is embargoing reviews until the day before its release is kinda worrisome as well. However, there have been embargoed games that reviewed well with fans and critics (DOOM, RE7, DMC5, God of War, etc.), so it's not a complete deal breaker.
