The reviews that don't like it seem to bash it mainly because the teaser trailer released didn't exactly reflect the gameplay. Personally, I think the mix between Dead Rising and Fallout sounds like a match made in heaven.

They seemingly make mountains out of molehills, though I can't be sure until I play it myself...

All I know is that the first instalment of a new iP is always a bit rough around the edges, But this is a concept I am really interested in and if it sells well enough (which it will) There will surely be a sequel which should hopefully polish on the first....

Very weak graphics? every other review says the graphics are great.

It's obvious that who ever wrote this review went in with their mind already made up. While most of the issues they talk about are real, every other review didn't seem to think they were that big of an issue. These are the kind of reviews that make me not want to read review anymore.

I think most of us knew from the start that this wasnt going to be as emotional and character & story driven game as the trailer might have implied. Especially considering its a new IP from Techland.
To be honest, i thought the game would be crap. But i have been very surprised by the amount of positive reviews its been getting. The flaws that most reviews mention do sound annoying, especially the fact that you can only hit one zombie at a time when coming up against a crowd of them, but it still sounds like fun and something different.

Might give it a rent.

This is more of a love it or hate it review. Don't take the authors opinion on a game you yourself might love or hate.
