- Product Review (submitted on February 15, 2013):
Considering the hype and buzz surrounding this game I won't go into too much detail about the game itself... I got the game through the Kickstarter so the "value" for my game is probably much higher than purchasing it through retail. Regardless, the game is a solid and thrilling zombie killing game. This isn't a realistic survival horror game, this is a crazy, hard, zombie murder game. Some aspects I really love about the game:
Customization of characters and other game aspects. Just like Arkham Horror, this game is totally open to custom characters with custom traits. Additionally, custom items, board tiles, tokens, etc... are all possibilities.
The simplicity of the game makes play smooth after you've played a game or two. The simplicity is balanced with just enough rules and mechanics to allow for strategic play.
Always nice to have another cooperative game. This also allows you to scale the game up and down by adding or subtracting survivors. You can also play the game with the same number of survivors but less players, having people control multiple.
Quality of the miniatures and board pieces is top notch.
Overall a guaranteed fun time. I had been waiting for THE zombie game for me and my group and this is it.
