    State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition is a game that I can easily recommend and for me it is one that will last a long time, with the original game, plus expansions in one packages, there are hours and hours of content to enjoy and it is worth every penny.

    Undead Labs understood that in order to create the truest-feeling zombie survival game, they had to make a world that was completely believable. They managed it, and the result remains a triumph.

    State Of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition is the definitive way of experiencing this fiercely unique zombie sim and a true highlight of the survival genre. Though still rough and ready, it's undeniably a complete package.

    While it never truly feels like it reaches its full potential or the promise Undead Lab’s ideas hold for the genre, State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition is still a fun, fascinating take on the tradition of zombie-apocalypse games that’s worth playing for hardcore fans.

    Two years after its release State of Decay is still a strong and unique game. Surviving together and help everybody out is a great thing to do, which is why we love the Breakdown and Lifeline modes. Unfortunately the technical issues are still part of the game, which should not be the case on a powerful console like Xbox One.

    This is hardly a remaster, but newcomers who want a fresh take on zombie fighting should consider it.

    If I found myself describing the game to friends as the game I wanted it to be more than the game it was, it's because the "ideal" version of State of Decay is intoxicating.

    State of Decay is a very good game for the Xbox one and with the other expansions they are even better and for only about $25AU there is noState of Decay is a very good game for the Xbox one and with the other expansions they are even better and for only about $25AU there is no reason to hate this game..... Because if we are getting games for this price that is awesome!! The game has only a few problems..... One being that I was wanting more out of it and expecting bit more out of this game but didn't get that.... It is a bit repetitive but it is repetitive where you look in houses for food and medicine but everywhere is pretty different and the map isn't too big but I love this game and I think any people who like zombie games and like the survival scene then this game is probably for you.... Also one more thing that is a bit annoying and stupid is that they should have put Coop in the game it would have been better to play with your friend together while surviving the apocalypse..... For the price we should all get this game because this is the price most games should cost!!!! Expand

    Ever wondered what it would be like to be a babysitter in the zombie apocalypse well state of decay is your best opportunity. Step into theEver wondered what it would be like to be a babysitter in the zombie apocalypse well state of decay is your best opportunity. Step into the boots of a random protagonist of whom's backstory you are completely unaware of other than your a survivor of the apocalypse and that it is your sole duty to quest, look for supplies and personally babysit several communities with a dozen people each while leaving your no time to explore and amerce yourself in the games beautiful open world. Pushed to the edge with no save systems or lack of character worth this game fall shorts on a lot of key areas, overall the game isn't bad, its average, with a strong ambition yet poor execution in the game itself Expand

    Moué, j'avais joué à la démo de la version 360 et déjà à l'époque, j'avais trouvé ça bien, bien... moche. Avec cette édition "améliorée" surMoué, j'avais joué à la démo de la version 360 et déjà à l'époque, j'avais trouvé ça bien, bien... moche. Avec cette édition "améliorée" sur la One, ô surprise... c'est toujours aussi moche ! ou alors un petit peu moins... mais pas trop quand même.

    Il faut dire que c'est un jeu arcade-indé à la base (du Xbox Live Arcade il me semble pour la version 360) et que le petit développeur a bricolé son truc avec le Cry Engine parce qu'il est pas cher... mais aussi très complexe à utliser, hélas... et du coup, one se retrouve avec un étron technique. Ou pas loin. Car je ne sais pas si je vous ai dit que c'est bien moche... mais c'est aussi vendu avec des ralentissements ! incroyable d'ailleurs mais même sur la X, ça continue de ramer ici et là !

    En dehors de ces aspects purement techniques (les voix sont en anglais, tant que j'y pense) ce jeu de survie à zombis reste constamment mal fait, trop mal fait pour qu'il n'en devienne pas fatigant et énervant à la fois... l'interface et les menus sont ainsi bien mal fichus et un ensemble de contraintes très contraignantes viennent encore en rajouter dans la lourdeur générale.

    La répétition s'installe également un peu trop vite et toute la partie gestion est ratée (cf les contraintes de temps, ressources, fatigue etc, etc). Il manque toujours quelque chose pour fabriquer ou construire ce qu'on voudrait et par ailleurs les branques qu'on a pour équipiers éventuels (un à la fois maximum) ne servent pas à grand-chose... à part vous faire perdre votre temps... parce qu'ils sont pas contents.

    De toute façon, quand on se rend compte que lorsqu'on consulte la carte (ou son inventaire tellement limité) le jeu n'est pas en pause, on se doute bien qu'il s'agit d'un jeu boulotté par des stagiaires. Et tout le reste est donc à l'avenant. Je propose donc une note en accord avec ce désastre, à savoir la plus sévère possible !
