THE Zombie survival simulator, go check it out on youtube, because words alone cannot describe the zombie game that an entire generation of gamers and zombie survival fans have collectively been waiting for our entire lives. Basicly what im saying is, it's good ^_^
I have tried both the steam and desura versions; both crash on load with "display driver has recovered from an error". Many people suffer from this error, as can be seen at the developer's own forum without sany solution.
I can't recommend anyone buy this game until a fix is available.
Autant j'ai adoré Dominions (2 et 3), autant ce jeu est une énorme déception. La défense des structures est pénible, à la fois par l'absence de message d'alerte si une structure est prise (meme si vous avez placé des défenses, encore faut-il savoir laquelle est tombée), que par le micro-management fastidieux nécessaire à la mise en place de telles défense. Cela est d'autant plus vrai que les cartes pululent de bestioles et que des vulgaires animaux (de terrible biches!!! Bambi t'es un salaud) s'attaquent à des villes...
Pour ce qui est de la magie, c'est le règne complet du hasard. Les classes mystiques peuvent accumuler des ressources magiques pour faire des rituels magique "majeur" qui ne font finalement parfois pratique rien ou un effet surpuissant. Certaines "élévations" (transformation d'un mystique en un statut supérieur) sont carrément négatives (par exemple, la liche devenant une demi-liche... qui devient inutilisable car ne se déplaçant que par rituel, de manière aléatoire).
Pour finir l'interface est bien moins conçue que la série des dominions. Ce qui rend tous les problèmes de micro-management encore bien plus pénible.
Played about 700 hrs of this on steam, have the DLC's etc and some really good builds but sadly the devs have let this fun game down, they constantly bring in balance changes that are just there to force ppl to buy the DLC as the DLC will have new characters or maps you need the items or stats from to survive accordingly.
The shops are or were rampant with Paypal sellers and the like, aswell as ppl using memory editors to obtain infalted stats without having to actually earn them, if the devs took the balance issues serious and the cheaters and the pay pal sellers instead of ignoring them the game would have had more life sadly tho the community is also terrible 9/10 ppl will kick you because you dont have 20million DPS like they do that they purchased form some person via paypal with dodgy stats.
Not a hater as i said 700 hours in the game just telling it hwo it is.
Also the constant way the game keeps losing synch with the validation servers means u will lose any progress made or items etc or xp in that time, it is common to find 4+ or 8+hrs of time missing due to this aswell as repeatedly having items or XP just dissapear i waited 2 months for a so called rollback only to be told if we do the rollback you will lose your progress currently or items, and prior to this i was told not told this would happen until 2 days prior to my rollback schedule..
Poor support basically and balancing is in favor of DLC's
Presented as a horror mod, after the first few minutes you find out that it isn't scary at all. But my god is it fun to play. I haven't felled this much joy in playing an old shooter as I did when playing Half-Life 1.
Everything about it just feels right. The shooting, the zombies, the cheeky voice-overs. The level design is just amazing and the length of the mod is just staggering. The mod has a good re-playability value also for the fact that this game is officially co-op compatible with Sven co-op.
If your looking for a great adventure or just a good shooter to follow after your adventure with Half-Life, this mod (or should I say game) is perfect for you.
Way to dark, there should be at least some options to adjust brightness or something like that. And i don't like the the begining, it takes to much time to realize what to do to push the game foward. Anyway i like the graphics and atmosphere of the game. But it still need some work in my opinion.
