    This avant-garde game is suprisingly nice more fun to play than many polished, big budget games. Capturing much of avant-garde, lowbudget goodness found in the movie. Land Of The Dead crafts a very fun, unpolished experience found in low budget horror movies, with an enjoyable plot, porting of many of the traits mechanics of the zombies in the film. The atmosphere is also brilliant, creating the feeling of loneliness desperation you would experience in a real, 'land of the dead'. Multiplayer Co-op is one of the most fun parts of it.

    I am a huge Zombie fanatic, so when I heard about this game and about how it had to do with Romero's movie I had to play it, I have to admit I wasn't a huge fan of the movie, and the game is just about as good as it was, it like the movie is only ok, the game-play is your basic FPS but with Zombies, targeting is clunky for some reason, because turning is awkward, the story is passable but is brought down by bad voice acting, multiplayer is obviously dead, and the game does have melee weapons but they are completely useless, and it does have some weird glitches and random load times, and has one of the worst turret sections of all time, and the A.I. is at times brain dead and will lose sight of you when you are right in front of them and shooting them, and it ends up feeling much longer than it actually is at times, but I have to say the guns act like real guns (except when reloading), but like the cheesy Zombie movies we watch you aren't going to play this game because it the most polished thing in the world, you'll play it because you love Zombies, but with all the better options out there, I wouldn't blame you if you passed on this, no matter how big of a Romero fan you are.

    One of the best horror games of the generation. Unlike the Resident Evil series, which is purportedly inspired by Romero's films, Land of the Dead is the only game I've ever played that really makes you feel like you're stuck in a world taken over by the living dead. The game is perfectly balanced; you're always just on the verge of running out of ammo, without actually running out. The game is at it's best, though, when it comes to little details. For instance, the fact that your character actually cocks his revolver after every shot (as anyone who's ever fired a double-action revolver can tell you, this is what you'd really do), or the way he pulls out his Zippo and lights Molotov cocktail fuses. Forget all the poor reviews; Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green is one of the best horror games on Xbox. Definitely recommended! Full Review »
