Plus XP contributor CJ writes "State Of Decay is a strange beast.
When the first reviews hit it snared decent scores – high eighties for the most part – each acknowledging inherent flaws with screen tearing and odd bugs here and there, yet speaking highly of a wonderful compulsion that lead on far beyond.
Releasing to XboxLive it became the fastest selling Arcade game on the system, racking up sales in excess of ten million dollars in a week. Consider that the game costs just under £14 to buy, and that’s quite the achievement.
As for my part in all of this, I thought I was on top of my games, of titles forthcoming and the latest releases, I hadn’t heard of State Of Decay. Not even under my radar, but failing to register on it. At all."
