Itīs so funny to see, that this game got a bitching thread (as i say before the release) and i got a fan boy rush in another thread. I mean, wow! Be carefull people, anything you say against this game can bring up some realy nerds which are NOT accept your opinion.

I make it short:

- driving
- combat is no combat, itīs chaotic bumper"ing"
- graphic issues, rocks in the air (NO BUG, Level DESIGN!!!)
- controlls are strange
- animations, cut scenes
- co-op is strange, i canīt join other matches if the person is higher with his lavel cap, no good solution with the matchmaking after all
- repair is not necessary, i see NO realy exiting feature behind this, itīs like Far Cry 2, just stupid.
- i donīt got the feeling iīm on a big island, the map is too small, theres a hotel for example and before this hotel are 3 zombies, i mean wow, bobody likes there hollidays on that island?
- voice acting is allways the same

Good things:

- 4 player co-op (i canīt play this game solo, thats to boring)
- Water looks ok
- plants and stuff is ok
- zombies look good
- weapons are ok

The matchmaking in DI is terrible, they've done everything they could to prevent a "Borderlands" experience and this is the result.

i just think its lame they didnt expect people to do single player. all the cutscenes contain the 4 characters, and like i said they keep going

"thank god he came to help us, you were right about this guy. hes immune to whatever this is."

"thanks for the help mates"

it just throws you off if you are playing by yourself and your char is female. none of the dialogue or cut-scenes make much sense, and it kind of throws off the gameplay.

oh ok that's what I thought you were talking about, but I was kind of confused. I don't know about calling girls he and him. Maybe it's an Australian thing? I don't mind the multiple people in the cut scenes because it's just a cut scene and I like to see all of the characters. I think it's interesting. Later the cut scenes have dialogue between the 4 so it's important to the story. Not sure they'll be able to change it without taking out the main story arc.

Wow. I love this game. The zombie tend to grab and hit you with a bit too much fequency but generally it's great!. Sounds like you should wait for the patch which should be out in the next week.

The patch seriously needs to hurry up. I was able to play any game anytime I wanted the first 3 days but last night and today I haven't been able to join ANYONE's game or have them join mine either. It's so frustrating because it's like the game doesn't even try to connect. Just says try again later. Hurry up microsoft and put the patch online!

You won't find any guns until Act 2. Purna's more of a support character and not a great solo character. He skills center around better scavenging, increasing teammate abilities, and fighting from a distance. Sam B is your best bet on a solo character. He was made to be a walking tank. In later levels, Sam B doesn't even need a damn weapon to take on small groups of walkers. Just ram and stomp

To be honest, I'm really regretting buying this game, I'm only on 2nd act and it's already pissing the hell out of me, honestly, I can't walk 2 inches into the city without 5-6 infected charging at me, not to mention that their screeches are incredibly annoying. Once you get surrounded, you are done. Also, Quests are tedious, the only one I actually enjoyed was the one where you have to go through the hotel into the parking lot to get the van, that one was awesome. And the fact that weapons do not level, is BS, how am I supposed to kill a lvl 25 walker with a lvl 6 pipe? Even with my stronger weapons, it takes forever, it's easier to just kick them until they get KO'd and then stomp their heads, of course this is not an option because most of the time zombies are swarming at you and you don't have the time to do it without them killing you. I would have made a better job at balancing the game, honestly >:C

totally, they should have spent so much more time on this before releasing it, if they did it would be so much better. there wouldnt have to be a bitch forum we could just enjoy it. so not worth the 65 dollars spent

And that is exactly why I have not played this game co-op. I just know that most people will just be on your way instead of actually help you.

I know, most people are like that, at least in my experience. Sometimes the gaming community sucks, thats why I'd rather play alone, or with people I know will help me out.

My problems with this game are numerous. most of the problems lay in horrible poor game design, which is quite possibly the least user friendly game ever.

I swear this game punishes you for just about everything you do and makes mundane things in a game a damn chore.

the "loot" system is brutal, because like most things in the game its random. there is no risk/reward factor when deciding to take on a mob of zombies or start a fight with a ram etc, since if they drop anything, its totally random.
thats ok, but then you add in the fact that if you want to keep your good weapons, you will be repairing them every bloody 30 minutes and that can cost over $5000 depending on your weapons. so you basically have to kill all zombies sometimes & loot everything just to get the money to repair the weapons...that you damaged trying to get the money to repair. game 1, me 0

again the money thing, its very important, so what happens when you die, you LOSE money. again, the game is punishing you. yet again, the amount is totally random, sometimes $30 or $500. then you factor in that some deaths occur when you get mobbed trying to loot bodies or suitcases just to get money to keep your weapons and you have entered a horrible cycle of gain money-die-lose money-gain money-weapon damage-die-lose money etc etc.

trying to sell stuff to traders is a time consuming chore that again with better game design, could be simple. however, you can only sell one of an item at once and then the screen hops to some totally random part of your inventory/misc stuff, making look again for what you were selling in the first place. trying to sell 20 phones can take a long time, instead of the 10 seconds it would take in a better designed game.

the respawn system is, yet again, seemingly random, dropping you farther away from your goal than before, maybe AT your goal, or maybe in the pile of some zombies. you never know. almost every respawn is followed by...ok...where the f*** am I? then possibly just to screw you some more, your compass may lead on a totally pointless detour, or maybe it will switch the quest you were tracking.

dammit, there is just so many problems with this game, which could have been really good. I really enjoyed it at first, but after getting to act 2 & past level 20, the game became a tedious chore that punished me for doing everything, whether that is dying, using my weapon, following the map.

sidebar, did anyone else notice that when talking to the Russian pilot in act 1, that his voice completely changes at one point. He sounds like Steven Blum most of the time, then when you get the quest to get a phone, he has a different high pitched voice.

I was looking forward to playing this at my buddy's place yesterday only to find out there's no split-screen. What a terrible fucking oversight not to put a split-screen option in a goddamn co-op game. I know it's not the only co-op game not to have it, but it's always a disappointment to find out.

I don't find playing over Live with a mic nearly as enjoyable as actually sitting with a person and playing it. I enjoy competitive multiplayer on Live but co-op is way more enjoyable when you are actually hanging out with someone.

I was excited for this game, I am a massive zombie fan, and I have to admit, the first hour was a little strange, not dull, not boring, just...meh

I was a little disappointed with it all, my first session was 30mins, yesterday I played for 2 hours, it got a lot better, today, I went on for an hour, and spent 6 hours playing it, this really does get better as it goes along, I now love this game to bits, the 1000/1000 looks like it could take awhile, but who cares, this game is a great little gem, not as good as Dead Rising series, but a great alternative.

The frame rate dropping and bogging out are ridiculous, especially in a single player game. Connecting to other games is a royal pain. The freezing issues really need to get sorted out. Played for less than 2 hrs today, restared my xbox 4 times.

Plus, it makes a weird noise when loading the disc every now and then. This happens to my room mate too and we both have brand new consoles.

Don't know if other are having the same issues...didn't really read the thread. But yeah, not very impressed...If I had no achievements in it, I wouldn't play it again.

Repetitive that's all I can say getting cans of food water and whisky over and over again to get money selling all the crap you pick up is a pain as you can only sell one at a time and it moves to something you don't want to sell then have to buy it back at a high cost and finally the lagging and crashing as the lighthouse in coop apart from that good game maybe being able to pick up a trash can lid for defence : ) being able to jump out the way don't help much when you got 7 zombie wanting a share of you

ya know everywhere i look now ppl are playing this game and seem to have the same issues with the game play. I mean all my subs on youtube that are gamers play it and say its a great game, i agree but either way so much more work needs to be done on it. It was kind of a disappointment and kind of a waste of 65 dollars
