Conclusion: It's not a bad list, but this game rewards achievements in bursts, not streams. OVERVIEW Storm Warning comes as a much needed overhaul to the base game, but not enough to truly elevate it to excellent status.
Summary: Naming a game after its tutorial might sound lazy, but it works for How to Survive. It would be like Activision naming its next shooter, Call of Duty: Combat Readiness. Not having “Zombie” or “Dead” in the title of a zombie-themed game is always a welcome change and thus, “How to Survive” stands...
Pros: Deep crafting and exploration, Instructional humor is not as one-dimensional as it initially seems, Inclusion of all previously released DLC creates a feature-rich package
Cons: Adds little that's new or interesting to the zombie game formula, Nothing to entice you to return if you've already played the previous release
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.
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
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.
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: 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.
