A horrific plague breaks out and mobs of zombies are roaming throughout the tri-state area, killing people at random. You play Jack, a simple farmer who must rise beyond fear, and battle your way through hordes of terrifying undead who are bent on spreading the zombie plague. You encounter a mysterious man named Mr. Kaufman who has established Fiddler's Green, a fortified city, which holds the last of the living. He has offered you a special job, with an exceptional reward. An offer too good to turn down, but will you live long enough to reap the rewards? Based on the George A. Romero film, "Land of the Dead." [Groove Games] Collapse

  1. Paradoxically, any brilliance and beauty lie in the raw, unpolished stylized realism and mostly clever reworking of elements found in the film.

    Road also boasts snore-rific multiplay that adds nothing. Even if the game's selling for less than its $19.99 M.S.R.P., leave it to rot. [Mar 2006, p.51]

    Anyone shelling out for Land of the Dead is in grave danger of buyer's remorse. [Feb 2006, p.64]
  4. Land of the Dead fails to deliver even the most garden-variety of zombie-killing thrills, due to its inept combat, awful visuals, and cripplingly stupid artificial intelligence.

The multiplayer is just like Counter Strike (yeah,i compared it to Counter strike,deal with it) the story might be chessy, but its a ton of fun. The only problem is the price,but you can download it free on mediafire,so there is no excuse for hating this game Expand

The farm at the beginning and the zombie-infested cornfields are oozing with terrifying ambience. However, once you've played through the beginning, you've basically seen all the game has to offer. The rest of the game is repetitive and boring. You wade through sewers and wander around city streets which are infested by almost identical zombies. There are only a total of four different enemies in the game: standard zombies, crawling zombies, melee weapon wielding zombies and diseased zombies. You spend your time bashing and shooting these four enemy types and completing simple objectives such as providing cover for a friend or looking for keys. This gets old very quickly but playing through the game doesn't take long either. The graphics are quite dated but on the other hand, the game should run even on slower pc:s. The sounds aren't excellent but they aren't bad either. The game has a basic multiplayer deathmatch which doesn't offer anything new and a way too easy co-op mode in which you kill waves of zombies with your teammates. You won't find many servers for this game since it isn't all that popular. In conclusion, road to fiddler's green is a big disappointment. A boring zombie shooter you'll play through in one night and never play again. Unless you're a really hardcore zombie fan the game is not worth your money. Expand
