How To Survive Review (PC)

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. But sticking around a little longer, I started to appreciate what the game was trying to achieve; combining the therapeutic fun of slaying zombies with requiring players to apply their brain and look for...

How to Survive

  • 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. Instead we get monkey/parrot taskmasters and their trivial pursuits, Kovac with his abominable tutorials and a fun little crafting system that belongs in a better game.

How to Survive Review

28 October 2013
  • Excerpt: 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. How to Survive, arriving relatively late in this pop culture fad, falls well within the action comedy survivalist category and thematically channels Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead . Much like its inspirations, How to Survive is a mishmash of tried-and-tested ideas.
  • 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

23 November 2013
  • Conclusion: „Jako survival horror How to Survive nezvládá dodat ani pocit boje o přežití, ani nedokáže pořádně vyděsit. Avšak jako nenáročná rubačka zombií se zábavným craftingovým systémem, která se skvěle hraje s parťákem, stojí How to Survive za pozornost.
