7.5 out of 10 Good

The survival genre of video games has become synonymous with horror over the years. Zombies, mutants and all sorts of sinister abominations are the forces we’re used to battling against.

No guns, no med packs, just the will to survive, and protect those who need you most.

For the most part I was right, but not due to that reason alone.
