I bought this game about a week ago, and I DID get a game completely different from what I was expecting, but I still enjoy it. The screenshots on the steam page make it look like a group-based game, which it definitely isn't, although really that can be blamed on the community. I was hoping for some sort of skill tree, instead I just get 5 entirely useless exp points each time I kill a zombie.
A couple of the screenshots in particular look like they were taken in-game, but they actually just could not happen, since they're showing animations that aren't in the game. Like this guy getting attacked by a zombie, or these guys running. This picture of these people doing whatever the fuck they're doing, what the fuck is this?
I was gonna quote some shit from the steam store about the skills, because I know for sure it said some shit in there, but it looks like they changed it. Someone mentioned a few posts ago that they were claiming people misread it and were imagining things, so I guess that's why.

Being one of the people who bought this game, I have to say to the people who didn't that it was terrible. You could die simply by walking down a hill. No, not falling, simply walking down a slope could get you killed. And when you die, you can't respawn for a while. I never checked the exact time, but I think I read on the Escapist that it was an hour or so. It advertised skills, which it did not have. Also, spawn camping was ridiculously easy, as there are pre-determined spawn points. Just seriously, don't defend it, because the game was advertised as complete when I would be surprised if it was past closed beta.
The walking down a hill thing is fucking annoying. I would understand if it was a steep hill, but I can walk up a slope, and then take the same path down and die. It has worked to my advantage while being chased by players with melee, though.
I've never seen any spawn camping, though, mostly cause it's only your first character that spawns somewhere predictable, I think. Even so, if you're killing someone who just spawned, you get literally nothing from it, and you lose a few bullets.
It's buggy as shit and they definitely advertised it with blatant lies, but I still enjoy the game I got, even if it wasn't what I was expecting.
