How to Survive Game Review


Want to remove your frustration? How about picking up a baseball bat of your choice and bursting out zombie's skull. Killing zombies were never as much fun performing tasks as it is in "How to Survive" game.

You will always find yourself just a quick jog away from handling zombies. After surviving a couple of levels, you will get access to healing plant that acts as a minor health boost when used with fabric so as to make an effective poultice. While making poultices, time freezes, so you don't have to worry about it.

Crafting weapons on your own is more exciting than finding blueprints. Along with a rifle that can kill almost any damn thing in a single shot, you will also get unlimited supply of ammo. Combat may not be that much great, but it is acceptable for sure. Targeting popping zombies is an easy task to perform. Nocturnal zombies are the most pathetic one, who travel at night and once you shine torch on them, they will either freeze or run, making it easier for you to take the shot. The zombies here have been shown more powerful and effective. They appear all of a sudden out of nowhere and do serious damage.
 

How to Survive


However, Zombies don't evolve much in this game. They are portrayed weaker than the player, who can go handling from one to an entire group of zombies without putting-in much effort. The whole concept of How to Survive is wrapped up with some challenge maps and horrifying story modes. Also there is an option of bringing a co-player for helping you out for local and online challenges by selecting any of the three available characters to choose from. There is a main event where you have to spend up to 7 hours, just to repair a sea plane. In addition to the missing surprises and a few characters, even the writing is done poorly and is edited. There are certain things that are added in this game with no point of needing it. One of such things is the concept of introducing talking monkeys. Also when the game has reached toward a politely ending, a 20 item scavenger hunt makes no sense at that point of time.

There are not many funny moments to enjoy in this game. Even the horror portion seems to be missing most of the times. The interesting idea of making Zombie based game goes in vain. It could perhaps have become much more realistic game if all the storyline, characters and other action related stuffs were framed as per the requirements. In short, the game could have been neater.

The problem is not about what is there in the game, but it's about what is missing. Developers tried to create something functional, but not desirable. With so many zombie related games out there, developers really have to come up with some unique idea in order to avoid becoming a part of the horde.

If you haven't played any Zombie related game, "How to Survive" could be the one to start with.

LEGO City Underworld


The LEGO City Undercover game is pictured in an open-sandbox world. In this game, players will be playing the character of a cop named Chaise McCain who is free to run in the LEGO city, filled with colors of distractions, pedestrians, cars and other collectible items to grab.
 

LEGO City Underworld


 
The game begins with a search mission where McCain moves around the city looking for a criminal Rex Fury and has to complete several missions in between. In order to get closer to the target and enter into LEGO City's underworld, McCain has to pose himself as a crook. The story line is filled with silly humor and stupid jokes that will make you laugh out loud.

The surface-level presentation is what makes this City Undercover game more stronger. Vocal cast is simply superb and an excellent soundtrack makes this game even more interesting to play. The game is well designed and has lots of things to collect, build bricks and start "Super Build" construction. You will be able to unlock tons of costumes and vehicles. The environment of this game is favored with your ability to jump across the car, ride on animals and destroy scenery. But when you will be engaged in the real story mode all your excitement will go in vain. Starting missions involve several chases through the city, followed by some detective work, giving you the same feel of running from room to room, breaking and building things, sufficient enough to make you puzzled. It's not that the gameplay is bad or something, it looks more similar to old LEGO adventures with an addition of sandbox elements. Apart from this disappointment factor, the classic framework of the game will give you consistent entertainment.

Justifying its title (Undercover), the game is all about disguise and moving ahead. Chase will unlock several costumes, each with unique skills. As a fireman, you can open the barricaded doors, as a farmer you can water potted plants to make climbable surface, as a robber you can use a crowbar to get through the doors. Switching between these costumes will help you to clear several levels. Whether its performing running stunts using simple button controls, scaling buildings or spying criminals, the LEGO City Undercover is genuinely blessed with new ideas and you will be enjoying some great fun time. Mostly, GamePad will be used to scan areas for secret dialogs and hidden items. The game is filled with funny incidents as well. There will be a time when McCain will be simply moving around the streets in between missions and will be looking for pigs to fire it out of cannons to ramp off the blocked areas and get access to new costumes.

Even though the controls are stiff, destroying the environment to earn a number of bricks helps in balancing the excessive stiffness of the gaming controls. So even if the car that you are driving is skidding out of control, you will be rewarded with points for that as well. There are certain technical limitations in this game that can hold back your experience. The loading time between the environments is quite lengthy and while navigating the city streets, you will experience frame rate dips as well.

Overall, The LEGO City Undercover is a fun filled game that has the story element to grab the audience across the world. Even though it may lack "Replay Value" due to some hard-to-ignore issues, but the funny animated gaming environment will somehow balance your overall gaming experience.
