I played through the first one, never really thrilled, and even halfway through again online. But the game, in my opinion, was just repetitive and just never really excited me.

I'll never know why so many people didn't like the first one (I'm probably just a zombie fanboy). Sure, a few things need to be fixed, but it's still one of the best zombie games on the market (although Dead Rising and Left 4 Dead are probably far ahead). I, for one, can't wait to play the sequel.

I agree with you, although this game isn't for every one, I think it found its niche among gamers. I spent hours playing online with friends and had a blast the whole time. I'm definitely ready for some more.
