The plot:
Five days have passed from the beginning of epidemic. In five days outbreak swept all north regions of USA. Despite the efforts of local authorities and military, all attempts to stop the epidemic have failed. Cities were left by all living things. (All living thing have left cities.) Borden was one of those cities.

Four our heroes, hiding in the woods near the city, have received information about the upcoming operation of the U.S. Army. Military forces are coming back from the south to clean up the city from the infection. Evacuation points were declared in old strongholds, that had been located in the most important places in the city and had held out the longest time. Our survivors have decided to go to the nearest stronghold - local high school.

an amazing campaign, although at a few points it seemed to drag on a bit, mainly the first two chapters.
it was great alltogether, the scripting was perfect as far as i could tell, and it was alot of fun to play through.
a pain in the ass to play through with bots as they would get stuck a few times each chapter.
the music for the credits was beutiful to say the least.
10/10

If speaking seriously, campaign was never intended for newbies with only 50 hours of playtime. Game is old, so is game's community, therefore majority of active players are very experienced. That's why this campaign is more difficult than standart ones and intended for 3-4 experienced players.

But i agree, some places in current version are very frustrating (and can cause chapter restart), and i'm working on that:
- First three chapters now don't have the possibility of two events in a row. Different event every time - but only one per map.
- I've altered several events to make them less frustrating
- I've split chapter 6 into two chapters - now survivors have savepoint right before stadium and they don't need to go through whole school building every unsuccessful attempt.

P.S.: Your experience also may be varied because of custom servers' mob settings.

You have caught us!
First we wanted to make single "orange" map only with tons of scripts, but then we've decided to disguise them as a campaign.

This campaign is frustrating, full of forced, pointless mega mob events. I did not enjoy a single moment of it, neither did my friends. Back to School feels like the autors just want to show you how well they can script and throw it all on your face while you play on long, boring chapters. I say 7/10. Good level design, good ideas, horrible execution.
