So this is the post I’ve had for my “24 hour count down” to the most anticipated game of the year. Currently I have played 0 minutes of the game but I have seen three other people play the game: someone on Youtube (who played the campaign), a friend at college (who let me watch him play the multiplayer) and my friend TheTekuKid* (whom showed me the zombie mode via FaceTime)
Below is my own little “Review” of the game.
Campaign: or what little I’ve seen of it, is AMAZING. They’ve totally blown me away in terms of what they’d give you before the mission starts. I’m not going to give spoilers, but I will say it is NOTHING like the previous games.
Multiplayer review is limited, but it’s possible to do battle on a yacht, the Dragonfly’s (Quad-rotors as I call them) look amazing. For those that don’t know what Quad-rotors are I will attempt to describe it. Take something the size of a normal computer keyboard, attach four helicopter rotors onto each corner, give a camera at it’s head and a mini machine gun. Quadrotors are what help with sports filming, only they don’t have machine guns underneath.
Zombies is a mix of old and new: They’ve kept the zombie moans and cries while they’ve added new guns and the Tranzit map allows the players to travel to five destinations: a bus stop, diner, farm, power plant, and city. During this time the players (max of four) have to work together to survive against an endless wave of undead.
What I’m a little frustrated is that none of the students on my floor are willing to play split-screen with me. And the fact that I’ve gotta wait til CHRISTMAS until I can get the game. (Yesterday I could describe myself as “hyper” to see more of the game. Even when I took my medicine.)
All in all, the game will be worth the wait and it will be worth every seconds worth of waiting.
