A 225 km2 open world post-soviet state wiped out by an unknown infection. Go Solo, team up with friends or take on the world as you choose your path in this brutal and chilling landscape using whatever means you stumble upon to survive.
I held off on reviewing until I got a few good hours with the game. This game is very fun, and quite challenging. I've only managed to get my hands on a weapon a couple of times, but whenever you do succeed in finding gear it's very satisfying. It will also scare the **** outta you when a zombie sneaks up on you and all of a sudden 20 are chasing you through the woods. I absolutely love how the multiplayer works, you can pretty much do whatever you want in regards to other players. Help them, hurt them, team up, or go it lone wolf style. I've had some pretty funny moments seeing other people run by me with zombies chasing them, unable to help them because I hadn't secured my own weapon yet. Great idea for a game, and the online forums have great tips for gameplay and the like. Try it out!
I bought ARMA II: CO only to play this mod and I did not regret it. Even in this early stage of developement this is possibly the best survival game ever created! You spawn unarmed, possessing only with a few items that might help you survive. Avoid zombies, find a gun, find some food and STAY AWAY FROM OTHER PLAYERS as most of them will kill you to loot your body! And don't get too attached to your items as you will lose them anyway! Either you'll be eaten by zombies, killed by other players or you fall victim to one of the many bugs in the game (remember, it's an alpha!).
-1 point for the bugs. If the developement continues at this pace, the release version will be a 10/10. Great job, devs!
