This is really good, like extremly good obviously. It's so good that I have to look really hard to find very many problems. i would say the only outstanding issue that makes this game less amazing than it should be is that harder zombies take 3+ shots to the face from a shotgun. I get that a game is supposed to be hard but seriously! that aside; this is single handedly the best flash game I've ever played.
Really good man. Quite hard sometimes.
Good. Fun, yeah. Don't have the volume on but I'm sure the soundtrack is pleasant (hate to half-ass a review but it's early). I like the art and animations were really smooth. The weapon upgrading system was vast; almost to a fault. I think that upgrading weaponry is a sight better than buying new ones every couple of minutes. Nevertheless, good game and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thoroughly enjoyed that game. Very simple and easy.
Really loved it. Cool animations, and good ones on Sly, the story is really pleasant, the music is appropriated and beautiful. Really nothing wrong here.
Here are my thoughts on this game:
Okay, this game was FUCKING MAGNIFICENT as far as the literal gameplay goes. I was/am blown away that somebody could do something this cool with flash. The zombies getting on your car was very nice, and helicopters/military were very fun to fight. I liked how you have dialogue that reveals the story, that was a great addendum. As well, the soundtrack was very appropriate and I am glad that that was done.
That having been said, there are some things that just kept this game from being the greatest I've played. Like, for instance, the voices...
The voice of basically all of the extra soldiers on the radio I heard were great! They were very good actors and sounded very convincing. The game was marred, however, by the fact that the two guys who talk THE MOST besides the main character were not very good.
The first commander in charge who talked didn't sound very convincing. He firstly didn't curse at all, even though you portrayed him as very nervous and hard-pressed. Military men would be cursing a lot more to me, and especially the ones who are reticent like that, (but personally I don't think any military guy who's in charge should be portrayed as anything other than confident otherwise I don't see how he got in charge). So in all fairness, the voice actors poor lines were more due to poor writing than poor acting, but he still didn't sound very convinced he was much of anything. And his voice sounded electronically deepened which just made him sound more goofy than anything else.
The second commander general was better. His lines were pretty solid, but his accent (beyond being a little sterotypical) was kind of overdone and easily laughed at. But he was better as far as his delivery and his confident nature in speaking like a weathered general.
Now, the main character was amazing! He sounded like someone I would play as in an actual video game! I loved his little phrases he yelled as he smashed zombies off of his car, and his narration of the shit I bought, very nice ideas and very nice delivery of those ideas.
Overall, still one of the best flash games I ever played. The commanders were a little dumb as characters, and their respective actors weren't the best, so that did make the game a little less enjoyable as I had to listen to them for that long. The upgrade system was top-notch, even thoug I didn't have to find myself replaying massive bits of levels when I died, but I guess that's just how the game goes. The soundtrack was badass, and if you ever want one I am all right at those too, but you seem to have it covered with that one (even though it was a little too quiet). If you ever want a voice actor, you should message me about it, I don't have a portfolio but I can act and do accents very well etc. etc.
Still, as I said, one of the best flash games I've played on the site and in my time on the internet, as far as being involving and actiony.
Right, I can't bother making pros and cons right now, so I'll just keep it vague to seem like I know something.
I loved the gameplay as a whole, the animations in their entirety, the customization, how it kept me wanting to play it. The slow motion was a nice touch.
Honestly, the things I found irksome were problems I would find with video games, and that is a stunning feat. To point out the flaws in any of the game mechanics would be impossible. What I can say against the game is it was endlessly frustrating to kill and die in that order over and over. I would've liked more control over the difficulty of the AI and other such things. Of course, that is not to take away from what an amazing game it stands as is.
If you aren't yet, go do something with video games, because damn this is impressive. If you ever want music written for a game, tell me.
