    A botched attempt at survival horror, but not a bad little shooter, nonetheless. Wait for an eShop sale, perhaps. [Sept 2014, p.90]

    How to survive falls just between Dead Island's open world gameplay and Dead Nation's action style... but it fails to give players a good reason to buy it.

    How to Survive stresses the theme of zombies, but also casts some interesting assumptions, such as the survival factor. However, it cannot offer an experience absent of disappointment and imperfections.
