Massive lag

Now, I've been following the Last Stand series since it first came out. I liked the first one, I love the second one, and I should really like the third.
This game has very strong elements, it's a very fluent RPG, with story elements that haven't been seen in the series until now. You feel for the people of the outbreak who are caught between well-prepared army members, and brain rotted animals.

Now there's a lot right with this game, but there's a couple things wrong that haven't been around in previous submissions.
Right: Graphics, RPG elements and weapons.

The graphics: Fit the scene of The Last Stand while updating and seeming fresh. You can turn down the violence if need be, but it seems to lose a lot of the impact. Don't forget to pay attention to detail! Otherwise you might miss a note or two of a heart-stricken lover or a pissed off neighbor. (Though it is quite visible when one turns the flashlight on that the ceiling was made to cave in).

RPG Elements: Make the game, you can customize your character to look however the hell you want, and you'll enjoy the fact that you're not trapped by a black haired white male anymore. You also have to develop your skills accordingly, or else you'll be overrun by a pack of zombies larger than 3. Keep an ever watchful eye on things that you could do better - whether it's gain health from food, pick locks, find things other than junk, you name it, because if you don't up the stats that follow it, it will not change.

Weapons: I have fun swinging my cleaver and dropping a zombie in one hit. I also have fun shooting from afar as my bullets go through three zombies and I only need to shoot twice to bring them down. If you're not hitting your mark, get your precision up. If you need more than 4 hits to bring a zombie down, up your blunt/blade. If you have a new shotgun but very few bullets, might wanna upgrade your gun stat so you don't need to shoot more than absolutely necessary. The weapons are a load of fun, and there are loads to choose from. Careful on stacking however, they do take up plenty of room!

Now that's what the game does exceedingly well at, and what I would bring up when mentioning this game (after a more pressing issue comes up).

What this game does wrong however, is the immense amounts of lag.
The lag will KILL this game in my eyes if it is not checked. I have never had issues with lag in The Last Stand games, but in this one I do, and it almost makes the game impossible.
This isn't the kind of lag that's my fault either. I can run an iTunes movie, while playing other games on Newgrounds, and with imvu, msn, and skype up in the background. It is not MY fault.
The game will randomly drop in frame rate and control immediately once a large group of zombies appear. My flashlight seems to make things worse so I normally just keep it off. Once the lag starts, if I was clicking to shoot, I'll keep shooting until the lag goes away. If I need to push D to push a zombie off, I'll tap D but it won't register until about 5 seconds, in which case it'll keep registering and forcing me into the massive dog pile of zombies.
I've died from this, and almost died from it several times.

Maybe it is my computer for some unknown reason (though I dropped everything I could to make it better, removing the damage numbers, lowering the blood, closing out windows) but nothing works, and I'll simply have to forget about this game unless something is done.

It's a shame, Armor Games really outdid themselves here.

hey I am having a blast playing this and it kinda reminds of fallout 3. i had a habit of picking up junk items to sell for money in that game. are there vendors in this game to sell stuff to or am I wasting my time?

this game was amazing.. but as far as the lagging i just toned down the quality and effects a bit seemed to work great after words


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Simply amazing

When i first started playing, i could not stop.I got really addicted to it, beating it on both modes,and trying out strategies.
I really liked the way the searching system worked, plus the lock picking (gave me that oblivion feeling), some of the sounds were from dead frontier, but that i can overlook.I also enjoyed finding the survivor from the previous games...but sadly i had to leave him surrounded by zombies,which i hope he survived :|
All in all, this was really fun to play.
