How to Survive

True achievements

  • Conclusion: It is worth the £9.99 price tag if this is your sort of game, but I would definitely recommend trying the demo first. At a sale price, I'd say its definitely worth a buy if you have a co-op partner, but could be quite boring if playing on your own.

How To Survive Review (PC)

Softpedia
18 November 2013
  • Conclusion: How to Survive doesn’t break any molds when it comes to zombie survival horror games; instead it succeeds in bringing to the table some fun elements that will make you somehow crave for more. The crafting system is cleverly designed and it’s probably the best thing the game has to offer for now.
  • Pros: + clever crafting system, + local and online co-op, + fun challenges
  • Cons: - unconvincing story, - repetitive environment

  • Conclusion: My initially negative impression started to melt away when I reached the second island. I don’t blame myself too much for that, as the game’s presentation at that stage is kind of bland and uninviting and especially its God-awful music needed switching off immediately.

How to Survive

Strategy Informer
3 November 2013
  • Conclusion: What we're left with is a quirky combination of tones and systems that never really mesh together to create an engaging whole. The game feels like with a bit more depth, length and ambition it could've given us a pretty unique experience.

  • Summary: Zombies. The word alone conjures images from dozens of films, books, and games. After being heavily exploited by the media for more than a decade, zombies have infested every subgenre.
  • Pros: Truly greater than the sum of its parts, Exhilarating moments that are created solely by the interaction of the mechanics, Fun challenge modes that put your survival skills to the test
  • Cons: Campaign mode is too short, Inconsistent difficulty

How To Survive review – undead again

metro.co.uk
6 May 2015
  • Summary: Surviving zombies is fairly easy but the real enemy here is tedium and a shopping list of design mistakes that makes this one of the worst zombie games of the year.
  • Pros: The combat is fairly satisfying and worth an hour or two’s diversion with a friend. The basic idea is fine and there’s a few good jokes.
  • Cons: The whole survival and crafting system is incredibly poorly thought out and adds almost nothing to the game. Strange, nonsensical design decisions, terrible graphics and voice-acting, and almost no story.

  • Excerpt: How to Survive im Test: Als einziger Überlebender eines Schiffsunglücks finden wir uns bei How to Survive am Strand der abgelegenen Insel Los Riscos wieder, mit nichts weiter als den Klamotten am Leibe.

  • Summary: Le potenzialità di How To Survive, nascoste sotto un superficiale strato di prevedibilità e incertezze tecniche rendono la nostra prova non troppo entusiasmante. Il team di Eko Studios ha svolto un lavoro interessante nel rendere la componente della sopravvivenza così ferocemente invadente da...
