The story is too old to be commented.

...not might actually be for the best...still weird though. It wouldn't be fair if you could swim by the zombies.

VV Well no, but its not a survival game, run by zombies and fight some is the option in this, however Zombie would just come into the water and either drown or just let you swim over them. Unless they could which case the whole ZOmbie thing would be off, I atleast hope they give a good excuse in the game. LVV

Fair? We are talking about survival and you wanna talk fair?? I'm not gonna shoot this zombie in the head because he isn't armed, it's not fair

No swimming on an island resort? Pftt whatever I'll still buy it most likely if reviews are good enough.

Hmm, that sucks a little bit tbh. That would have changed the whole zombie gameplay if you were able to swim.

No swimming? I think they could have gone a different route and made the tides impossible to swim out against and then allowed Zombies to basically come out into the water if you tried to swim out you would basically be getting hit by wave after wave knocking you back into possible waiting zombies.
