From PC to Xbox

i have played this on pc and xbox one very enjoyable. i bought the year one edition on x1 and it got even better. freeroam and base building with keeping your camp alive with big zombie threats. im hoping for bandits or other survivor theats in the next one. that would make this game feel even more like zpoc.

This IS HANDS DOWN, One of THE ABSOLUTE BEST, MOST ADDICTING Zombie / Survival games I've ever played. I honestly have no Complaints as pretty much all of them are being adressed in the Second Installment, That I can't wait to get my hands on, might I add. (EX: Graphics, Customization, Map size, Co-op, ect.). Seriously Though "Undead Labs" is doing it right. With that being said, all in all .... Package Deal.

For those who held out on this port

I must say when I played this on Xbox 360 it was immediately my all time favorite zombie game. Thanks to the Halloween sale couldn't pass this up. Takes the GTA gameplay into a Zombie Apocalypse. For those who played through the previous version and felt $30 seemed like a rip due to the previous version costs $15, get the Xbox One version for $10 while you can.

Like GTA in a zombie universe

I could play this for days. This game allows you to either indulge your. gory sweet tooth for zombie genocide, while sometimes forcing you into desperate situations to remain stealthy and slip away, lest you alert the horde. The tradeoff? fairly common (yet comical) minor bugs and rushed design that, at points, breaks immersion. you'll only notice a half hour in that they were VERY short on voice actors and lines. This is ESPECIALLY problematic in the breakdown mode. luckilly, the gameplay makes up for this. The survival elements, and the ability to, in a sense, build a zombie apocolypse empire and rule the roost while often mowing down zeds to find supplies, make the aforementioned oversights in development easily forgiveable, and sometimes, endearing.

A very satisfying Zombie Survival game!

I have played both PC, and Xbox 360 versions. This updated version is even better. My only (admittedly huge) complaint is automagically spawning zombies. Ruins immersion and sense of accomplishment. Otherwise, a fantastic game!

The unoffical Walking Dead game!

If your a fan of the Walking Dead then this is a must buy. Just like the TV series you have survive on trust and wise decisions. Hunt for surpplies, maintain and expand your fort and crew. Be careful on what you do because once you die that character will be gone FOREVER. Build stats, find weapons and also grow your own food. This is what a zombie sim should be all about! Now there are a handful of bugs and glitches but they are easliy outweighed from the volume of content that this game presents. Theres even vehicles are at your disposal! So if your a zombie fan and love movies and shows like Night Of The Living Dead and The Walking Dead then I guarantee you'll love this game!!!

This is honestly one of the best games I have ever played. A free roam with just miles and miles to explore, the story mode is okay but the stratagy is amazing. I feel that it could have more objects to collect and more buildings to scavange from as I think that there are about 10-15 hours worth of scavaging after that you just kinda run out of stuff to collect.
