    Only played about 2 hours so far, just doing the side quests for the lighthouse and the lifeguard charachters.

    Its ok so far, like a slightly different take on fallout/oblivion.

    Im not sure I like the acheevo's though, certainly not going to unlock many before Gears 3 is out :(

    Thats your leveling up XP bar. :smashin:

    Went wandering around the first map earlier and found my first orange weapon. Nothing special, just a cleaver. BUt i came across 2 places that had a portal and had no idea of how to get into them. They were like bunkers *
    Not the ones on the beach either

    just starting out and i can't find one of the people on a side quest, the lost - find maggie, i have looked all around the area, u would think it would give u a general area indicator like in fallout 3 or borderlands so u know where abouts to go, to show no indication at all is a bit strange.

    Fair enough. I should be on again tonight, maybe not quite as late, but we can have another go.

    Maybe Ill have to join your game instead. I did set the coop options to private so maybe that was what was stopping you from joining??

    I noticed them at the start as well. It was only after I completed a quest (think it was called Black Hawk Down) that I got access to one of the bunkers close to the beach, on the east of the map.

    while im enjoying the game, the save system needs to be addressed, i did a few side quests and after i saw the saved game come on screen i was going to quit out, i reloaded the last checkpoint to make sure everything was ok and it reset the side missions i just did.


    :confused:

    Not had any bugs yet , only slight problem i had was in the intro video (party) little screen tearing.

    Really enjoying this doing it solo first , played it for around 8 hours yesterday and just managed to get to the city part (church) being doing a lot of quests :)

    I'm really enjoying it and can't understand why it has been reviewed so badly, sure it takes a while for the game to open up but once it does it becomes enjoyable.

    I can't be the only one that was gutted when i stumbled upon my first bunker and realised you could not get in (think they unlock as quests are opened) :D

    I like the varying levels of difficulty for quests too, some are easy xp and others you really have to work for it , started the game yesterday and upto level 15 :)

    started playing it yesterday and didnt stop until 5 this morning! first moreish game I have had probably since half life! have to say though I was annoyed when playing co op with a mate online and some random idiot joined and started shooting us! Despite all the hours put in already i have not managed to find a single gun yet :confused: though my modded baseball bat seems to do the trick banging some sense into those zombies :D

    Does the game get better the further you get along? Played about 3 hours of it and got bored after 30 mins melee'ing zombies.

    Definatly get's better i reckon, the more you rank up the better weapons become available.. Apart from the revolver which is trash , got to the church and noticed the shop guy has an a decent gun.

    Apparently there is a gun shop on the island which i've not found yet.

    Going to do the lockpick unlocks next as i've found a few level 3 cases so bound to be something tasty hidden in them.

    I'll let you know when i find the gun shop and the weapons available.
