Summary: How to Survive might not have the most exciting cast, but it can certainly deliver some satisfying zombie-slaying combat. A slightly repetitive story and lackluster skillset isn’t enough to bring down an otherwise action-packed adventure whose hints of role-playing elements and persistency warrants...
Conclusion: How to Survive is a fun, decent game that will only be in your mind for a few, short hours then become forgettable once you finish it.

Summary: Like a pack of brain-eating zombies, How To Survive snuck up from behind and took me completely by surprise. This is one of those rare moments where I knew absolutely nothing about the game before pushing start.
Summary: How to Survive is more fun than it has a right to be. Schlocky voice-acting and ropey, ugly aesthetics can’t get in the way of what is a very addictive little Action-RPG with elements of Dead Island’s crafting system and ’s resource management.
Conclusion: How To Survive's big problem isn't what's there, it's what isn't - that it’s less half a game as half of several different ones, duct-taped together in its own crafting system to create something functional, but hardly desirable.
Pros: Intricate crafting, Co-op challenges
Cons: Uncommitted to itself, Dismal story, Monotonous environments
Summary: How To Survive is more than just a solid zombie role-playing game, it's also one of the best games of the year. With its mix of Diablo-esque hack and slash and dual-stick shooter action, 505 Games' newest Xbox Live Arcade game is a real surprise.
Conclusion: L'idea alla base di How To Survive era indubbiamente molto interessante. Se è vero che il background zombiesco è oggigiorno trito e ritrito, è altresì innegabile che i ragazzi di Eko Software abbiano puntato l'accento su un aspetto molto diverso, vale a dire la sopravvivenza.
