This game is an absolute disgrace. An embarassment to all involved with it.

To think it came out in the same year as MW2. Unbelievable.

I really cannot be arsed playing this game and ive only done the first three levels but I will have to for the 1k.

You never have enough ammo. I have been beaten down twice on EASY as I get swamped with no ammo. I mean, you can have a max 90 rounds for the AK47. Joke.

Some must have paid what, 40 for this when it came out? I feel short-changed having paid 8.

Fucking bullshit

In this fucking retarded game when a fucking enemy has a bag over his head it transforms him into a fucking superhuman, indestructible dickhead that will not die.

Im at the end of level 9 with him in a room and I can't kill him with 18 shot gun blasts to the upper body.

He fucking moves across the whole room in the blink of an eye. Can hit you from 20ft away.

Utter disgrace.

How the fuck games like this get to the shop shelves I will never know.

It was made by a bunch of retards.

Head shots are key. I got mine for free off one of those prize sites. Terrible idea, though.

Head shots with a M60 machine gun will save the day. Also if your playing on easy dont forget your melee attack if you get surrounded. It kill infected with only 2 hits and has a wide arc so you may get more than one!

Thats a lot of anger? use your knife/machete on him whilst circleing round him and constantly hitting the RT to slash. The second slash stuns him and resets the attack pattern so if your quick enough you'll take him down.

I did it with all 3 Mask men. Try to stay on his right side though. Found it to be easier

I agree that this game is horrendous.

This is the only game where the main campaign lags.The controls are all blocky.The only good thing about this rubbish is the melee spam.

They should have played up the Zombies vs. Vietcong idea more. It's too stupid of an idea to be scary so they should have made it campier. The weapons also feel underpowered and the aiming isn't very tight.

Aiming is beyond "not very tight", damage detection is near non-existent. Point blank headshots half the time aren't even registering. I've been running into that campaign lag constantly, it's so bad now every time I kill someone it stalls. F*'n great in all the firefights they throw you into with little to no ammo. I got this game as a present by a kind soul who didn't know any better. Feel bad they even spent $15 on it, can't bring myself to tell them how horrid it is if they ever ask...

I completely agree with the OP, this game is utter crap. Man, I thought Conan was a horrible 360 game, but this one makes that look like Oblivion Lmao! Definitely the worst game I've played on the 360 so far. It actually feels like a chore trying for these achievements and that's never a good sign .

Why is it crap do you ask? Well, besides what everyone else wrote in here, can I add how absolutely terrible the graphics are? I mean, I'm not one to base good graphics as a sole reason for good gameplay, but this game is just dreadful looking. Not to mention the terrible A.I, horrible controls, extremely lame story that a 12 year old could come up with, and of course the worst is how melee damage is actually stronger than the freakin weapons in the game!

Man, I'm sorry I paid 12 bucks for this. What a waste of my money. Well on the bright side, at least it doesn't have multi-player achievements .

i did what another poster above did when it came to the men with bags on their head, i found the video on here if you can't find the post then have a look on youtube as it's far far easier

i didn't think the idea was all that bad at all, obviously it didn't really flow very well in the game haha but i don't think it was a bad idea! i also got scared on the mansion level :\ surely i'm not the only one to jump when the zombie reached from the side wall? :s

i must say, as far as having no ammunition goes i didn't really find that a problem at all :\

This is hands-down one of the worst games I've ever played. Anybody thinking of getting it, don't. Controls are awful. Graphics (even for 2009) are awful. Gameplay is ridiculous. Machete hits that don't connect even though you're practically hugging the zombie. Shotgun blasts to the head that do nothing.

The only good thing about this game is that they play Free bird on the credits.

If you're looking for an easy (sans a few parts on Hard difficulty) 1000 GS, this game is for you. If you're looking for a game with good graphics, gameplay, sprinting, plot, weaponry, locales, and one that is bug-free, you've come to the wrong please.

I got the full 1,000 in six hours straight, but this is honestly one of the worst games I've ever played in my life (and this is my second time getting 1,000 GS on it, as I had it for my previous profile), and everyone that was involved in the making of this game should be beyond embarassed and ashamed.
