A fun game, if a near perfect clone of The Last Stand. Still, it changed some things that made it, in my opinion, better. My thoughts as follows.

Worked:
-The first person view for the actual shooting I felt was a vast improvement. It felt much better to kill enemies.
-The team distribution worked well for the most part, and I've always liked the concept of organizing teams in zombie games.
-The music, while repetitive, was unobtrusive and didn't really get old.

Didn't Work:
-While I liked the squad system, nothing was worse or more crippling than losing that one teammate that kept the search party going, whether that be your fighters or your searchers. They always seemed to die together for me (as in all my searchers or all my fighters). I had one playthrough where I had almost as many survivors as you could have assigned to teams. The game's solution? Take out literally half my search party with nothing to show for it. I had to reassign all the fighters that were shooting, which made it impossible to survive a wave without massive damage. That meant I had to spend a bunch of time repairing, which meant I couldn't search, etc etc.
-Okay seriously, what the hell is with that aimer? I've never seen a game use one like that. Maybe it's supposed to be realistic but I had a hard time figuring out where exactly to fire to land headshots.

Overall a fun if somewhat difficult game. 4/5 for you.

Nice game, reminds me The Walking Dead, but in a stationary story line location. I understand that this is an apocalypse on the zombie level, but in a rural area I think there would be more guns available (well at least in my neck of the woods there be gun's a plenty around here- granted not assault rifles), and at least more survivors. I went 12 days before I found my first weapon and 20 days before my first survivor. And since the last survivor I found one additional weapon and no survivors. Making for a very difficult game indeed against a constant rising zombie level ramp up.

It became more and more frustrating when each house search ended with nothing but wasted time and increasing zombie attacks and rapidly dwindling defenses.

Action: 4
Lots of shooting, but after a while it becomes repetitive. A nice touch would be being able to set up traps on the walk up for the walkers to encounter. Increasing survivability chances some.

Story line: 3
Very linear. Granted with zombie survival how much more can you do. Moving to new locations would help greatly and allowing them to get to a safe house to be rescued.

Animation: 4
The death throes of some of the zombies were nicely done, and were wonderfully animated. Unfortunately after a while it looks like you are being attacked by patrons from a 'Twin Festival'.

Sound: 4
The gun reloading is nicely done, as is the gun shots themselves. The only complaint on this level is the neutral zombie groan when killed regardless of what sex the zombie is. I understand this is quibbling, but for immersive gameplay it can take away from it.

Music: 4
Nice, and ominous.

Difficulty: 3 (difficult)
The difficultly ramps up quickly after the 5th day - by the 10th day, with no help or new weapons, makes survival extremely frustrating. And if the acquiring of survivor and weapons is wholly random, there will be players who will have a lucky streak and find nearly each house populated by half the town, while others (like myself) walked into a town that became zombies and prior to the zombie invasion burned all their guns in an attempt to end gun violence (aka The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XIII "The Fright to Creep and Scare Harms")

This game is pretty interesting! The aiming system is pretty lienent at times, so it ended up being a pretty simple shooting game. Though there is a tad bit of pressure after 20 rounds or so. The only problem I have would be the searcher system, which was very annoying, I'm not even sure what the ratio there is for! I would even go over the amount it asked for, yet it would still give me a low chance to find things and they had weak defense. with ratios where I had 10/9 in defense and 11/11 on search instead of gaining items 2 or 3 survivors would just die off. I never really found repair all that useful, since it isn't repair over time.
