    How to Survive is a worthy game built on a strong foundation of exciting experiences, but it’s still far from perfection.

    How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition adds a couple of twists to the original version of this interesting but somewhat unappealing survival game.

    How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition rewards the procrastinating zombie enthusiast who’s been curious about the game and its add-on content.

    A nice repack, preserving good things and defects of the original, namely the interesting weapons and quests, and the sometimes lame combat system on the other hand.

    The great amount of walking dead related products in recent years seems endless. How to Survive takes its place among the zombie comics, movies and TV shows, mixing enough genres to work quite well, even though it might be quite expensive for what it really is, a PlayStation 3 game.

    A cut-and-paste version of the PS3/Xbox 360 with a bunch of extra modes and features.

    Fun in small doses with a mate, otherwise monotonous, ugly, and done better elsewhere. [January 2015, p82]

The survival is pretty interesting and the fight gameplay is pleasant. Its a short game, in fact. With a good skill and good weapons, one can finish this in about 3 hours. But its a good weekend game. I recommend. Expand

    i have only gotten on 3 islands so far and it is pretty cool game for 20 bucks, would be more fun if i can find a friend to play co-op with,i have only gotten on 3 islands so far and it is pretty cool game for 20 bucks, would be more fun if i can find a friend to play co-op with, definitely a survival game where you cant go bum rushing into everything and punching, kinda died a lot when i tried to rush through areas. also a warning. night time sucks, so make sure to start a fire and walk around with a burning stick, it might sound silly but you will know how useful it is when you have to do it. also it keeps you from using up flashlight power, you will also learn why that is a good thing as well. if you got 20 bucks or find it on sale and have a friend to play with, then i would say this is not a bad purchase.

    Not playable alone. Great coop fun for only $20. Crafting is meh and the survival resources can be to hard to come by a times(LiterallyNot playable alone. Great coop fun for only $20. Crafting is meh and the survival resources can be to hard to come by a times(Literally unable to find water on any island). Combat is kinda meh.

    It is a good coop survival game as it is really the only thing that I know of on the market.

    this is a perfect example of a really bad built game that had a chance to really get ahead in this market ... you can totally tell they rushedthis is a perfect example of a really bad built game that had a chance to really get ahead in this market ... you can totally tell they rushed through it without going into the game and fixing all the issues that make this an unplayable game.. aiming is hands down the worst on any game on any platform. god its so bad. next, your vital gauges are really poorly build and run out on you in min, sometimes seconds. the load areas are poorly built. so you can get stuck in a situation where your health is 0 you tiredness is 0 your hunger is 0 and it will reload in a heavily zombie populated area over and over again without bringing you back to a load zone where you actually have a chance to get through where you messed up and pick up supplies needed in your mission.. ...its just a bad bad game with an awesome concept. the potential was so high with this game. this is just what happens when your game designers rush through something to get it out the door. it should be free not 30$ Expand
