Summary: I bought this game hoping the reviews were just people who liked newer type games and couldn't handle the slow pace of a strategical game. I bought this game for me and a friend since I don't like playing many games in single player, especially if there is an option for multiple players. I had played a bit of the game before my friend and I played and then we connected and tried playing coop. This was one of the worst experiences I've had in a multiplayer game.
Summary: The concept is great, and the 3D assets look very appealing. However there is a general laziness about the actual programming of the game that has made it virtually unplayable. The controls are laggy and sometimes outright unresponsive. The level design is straight forward and not fulfilling. Frankly the game seems to have promise, but falls horribly horribly flat. This game is NOT worth the money. I highly suggest AGAINST buying it.
Summary: This game is TERRIBLE! I love zombie games but this one is awful. Yes it has zombies, but Trapped Dead also has poor control, bad story, unlikeable characters, and a save system I hate. Project Zomboid (not available on Steam) is exponentially better than this stinking pile of software.
Summary: The game's visuals and art style are where the positive experiences of the game ends. The controls are slow and sometimes unresponsive, even when they are responsive the in-game actions are just as slow. Many reviews spoke of bugs but I didn't get the chance to encounter many because a bug on the 2nd tutorial level made progress impossible. After re-trying the tutorial level I've already reached the point of never wanting to run the game again.
Summary: Multiple game breaking bugs (Do not alt + tab!), a rigid interface and multiplayer function thrown in as an afterthought make this game a fraction of the game it could have been. The game is slow to respond as there seems to be a delay between the orders you issue and the game registering these orders, some times not registering at all. Your characters take their time equipping new weapons, seemingly never in a hurry.
Summary: This game puts more emphasis on Tactics rather than mindless button mashing "just to kill as many as possible" unlike recent zombies games. 3 zombies at the same time can be a problem, hence, kiting and careful ammo distribution is critical to your survival. All of this coupled with a "Command & Conquer" interface where each of your survivors can be given an order. You can even move the camera to see the horrors that lies ahead and plan carefully.
Summary: A good game that actually keeps you entertained, although it could have been made with improvements. The multiplayer is not all that fun from single player as you would have thought and expected... and I think it's what is lacking the most. And that's coming from a girl that dislikes multiplayer. The graphics are also nice and still enjoyable. People's claims of the game crashing is just because their computers can't handle it... so they put the blame on the game.
Summary: New on Steam for 8 Euros, the game is worth the money. Its not very fast but more tactical, you control a few guys in the style of Party RPGs and battle against several zombies. Leveldesign is ok, story not bad.
Summary: Well what should I say. This game could have been a very good title if the developers would have taken the time to acctually finish it. Since most games by big publishers enter the market bugy, untested and unfinished i always hope for some new "undergroundtitle"(like Farcry f.e.) by young developer Teams just like Headup Games. . ANYWAYS this Game might as well could be a title published by EA . The game is so broken i dare to say it is unplayable.
