Based on the feature film from George A. Romero, this new chapter in the Living Dead series is a full-featured, first-person shooter video game sets players in the midst of a gruesome adventure in which they battle to save themselves – and a diminishing living population - from an army of the dead bent on spreading a zombie plague. Developed by Brainbox Games, a Digital Extremes Studio, and using the Unreal Engine, the game features terrifying zombies, frightening effects, an immersive storyline and key environments seen in the film. Gamers can also join intense, bone-chilling multiplayer battles against the dead online.
I really enjoyed this game. The suspense and scares were plentiful, and it challenged me as a gamer.
I've been a long-time fan of zombie films and survival horror games--since the original Resident Evil on the Playstation--and feel that this game comes as close to putting one into the role of a Romero hero as any game has done thus far. The enemies are relentless, the ammo supply is just barely adequate, and the music chills the spine. And the story is engaging and interesting--a worthy prequel to the Land Of The Dead film.
This game has been unfairly maligned. If you like zombie films, and survival horror games, you owe it to yourself to check out this under-appreciated masterpiece.
