One of the worst games I have ever played.. I also own BRINK
First of all, the mechanics just feel incredibly clunky. Before purchasing, I knew this game would have so clunkiness to it, and thought it would be bearable, but I was wrong..
Gameplay gets even more boring after 4 hours. Hunt is the only gamemode where it is actually fun for the first few hours, the other gamemodes are negligible. I admit this was fun at first, but after 4-5 games it got tedious. When you become a zombie, you take years to brake down a door and most of the time I gave up and went AFK, especially on the estate level, since the map is so big and has houses to enter, the games are filled with campers who instakill you when you are climbing up a ladder or they camp in an attic or bedroom.
The guns in this game do come in a variety, but most of the time you just need 1 or 2 weapons to survive. In the "Hunt" mode, there is way to much ammo and you never run out, which doesnt seem to fit well in a zombie game, but this does make it more fun, as being killed when you have no weapons is annoying for everyone.
The playable characters are slightly below average, none are memorable apart from a black police officer and a blonde girl (?), they sometimes spurt out lines which are not badly voice acted, but you dont take notice after a few minutes.
The music and ambient sound is the only good thing about this game, it makes your surroundings feel empty, as if a real apocalypse, but thats about it.
Everything else is completely bland, stale and average. After two days I never wanted to play this game again, as it was just so bland. And for everyone saying "It was made on the source engine cut it some slack" I know it was, but why would you spend £15 for an average (Bearly average) game when there are way more games that are better and will last you longer for even 20% of the price..?
TL;DR: This game is a max' 5/10 with friends, 3/10 without, gets boring quick, too repetitive, only one actual mediocre gamemode and being a zombie is the most boring aspect about the game. Buy this on sale if you are absolutely desperate to buy it, it will never be worth the full price. IS VERY SIMILAR TO NO MORE ROOM IN HELL
EDIT: Also look at how long most reviewers have played their game for, roughly 9-10 hours for most people. I doubt £15 is worth 9-10 hours. Although my playtime is low, it is higher than most.
