I really think this looks great. The only disappointing thing in the lack of any new special zombies. The bloater, tank, hunter and screamer have been done in literally every zombie game since Left for Dead. It's time for something new there.
It's really sad to see most developers leaving local co-op out of games these days. I might get it because it looks like heaps of fun, but lack of local co-op kills it for me, back to left 4 dead for me and the bros it seems.
Just a heads up when you start the game. If you choose to play the game Multiplayer Campaign, you choose to play with bots by selecting OFFLINE. And then you are prompted to choose which Chapters you want to play OR there is Quick Play. DO NOT choose Quick Play if you want to play the chapters in order. Quick Play will throw you into a random chapter at a random section of the chapter. I backed out once I saw on the loading screen it was putting me into Chapter 3 section 1.
Wow, this game performs great with the flow of zombies coming at you and climbing over gates. There are areas with hundreds of Zombies. The AI for your coop partners is actually pretty good. I was playing before work this morning and I didn't want to stop playing chapter 1, but I had to put the Xbox in rest mode and head to work
This was not on my radar but after reading a few things yesterday I figured why not, I had a $5 credit from Microsoft Rewards so only cost me $35. If this was a $60 game I would of waited for a sale but this seems like a solid budget game from the little I was able to play last night. The 2nd NY level did glitch on us at the train and would not let us move forward, I had to eventually quit and received zero XP which was frustrating.
Definitely not as good as Left For Dead IMO, not sure I will enjoy the levels as much, it needs more enemy variety and I found myself needing to constantly find ammo and ran out quick but for what it is I can seem myself putting some time in especially with the leveling up system. I hope any glitches and bugs get worked out and they support the game.
