Fun game...

._. It was. But I felt like I've played it before...

Lagged a bit, but only on a few bits. The controls were a bit unresponsive when I got to the endlevel of Act1, but overall, good job. Just not great.

A solid game

It's good. There's flaws, but you've got a strong foundation.
GAMEPLAY: The basic mechanics are solid, and you've got a few neat twists. The low ammo cap is a neat way to get the player's to think tactically, and you managed it well- I ran out of ammo for one gun or the other a few times, and I had to simply run past a few of the later hordes, but my position was almost never hopeless. Plus, you managed the rpg elements well. However, the gameplay gets repetitive. You don't gain any new abilities or weapons over the course of the game, and you have much less options during this game- grenades are rare, and since Z's aren't weakened noticeably by light, flares are useless indoors where your vision range is short, and useless outdoors where you don't really need the extra light to see. Plus, the missions are very obviously formulaic.
Graphics: Overambitious, and unpolished. A psuedo 3-d rendering looks pixalted, and there were a bunch of little details that simply not done well- the zombies are locked into their get-shot animations, and don't react when interrupted (read: shot again). The grenade throwing animation is jerky, and there's parts where the game acts like it's lagging. I know your animation style is signature, but well-done cartoon graphics look far, far better than mediocre renders, and have less problems to boot.

Overall, it's a good game, but it could be far, far better.

Very Nice

The lag is a problem when you're facing a horde of zombies, but other than that, I enjoyed the shit out of this game.

Pretty solid

Sound effects were pretty good, game storyline was pretty solid as well, however I found the aiming to be off and regularly had to move my cross hair OFF the target to actually hit the target as the bullets would either completely miss or sail through the zombie with no damage done. Lag was another issue at major points int he game, and voice overs did not match text speed which at times was WAY too fast.

Just a few things to tighten up and a better ending and you sir, have an outstanding game.
