State of Decay Review - The Digital Fix

There’s no time for exposition with State of Decay. Other games infested with the all-consuming monster du jour – the humble zombie – spend time building atmosphere, tracing the spread of the undead masses from patient zero to full-blown pandemic. State of Decay opens with a handful of zombies chowing down on an unlucky hiker and immediately throws you into combat as they turn on you. Its blunt, unsympathetic approach to the player begins as it means to continue – the sudden violence of combat designed to warn you of the dangers inhabiting this mid-size world. There’ll be no holding of hands, no safe haven and no second chances. State of Decay is more than a zombie killing riot - not just when supplies are low and survivors prone to freak out. (State of Decay, Xbox 360) 8/10
