    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.

    I never got the chance to play state of decay for 360, but for the xbox one this game is a really nice surprise. I've never played any otherI never got the chance to play state of decay for 360, but for the xbox one this game is a really nice surprise. I've never played any other game on console like it. its a survival zombie game and if you've ever played on pc or have steam you'll know that these games are rampant on the pc. It's a really popular genre that I think we will start to see more of on console. Back to the game though. its an older game engine so the graphics aren't stellar , But compared to the pc they are really nice. they stand up really well when compared to the pc version in my opinion. the textures, shadows AA and draw distance are all very close on xbox one and pc. The game has a lot of replayability and is very immersive. I haven't played a survival game this fun in along time. Now that I can play this type of game on my xbox one I think I'm in LOVE! hopefully Microsoft keeps pushing out games like these between the pc and the xbox one. I think having a pc and an xbox one is the best way to game especially with all the AAA games coming out and WINDOWS 10 and DX 12 on the horizon.. I give this game a 9. based on its the first zombie survival game on console. (xbox one, Ps4) the upgrades to framerate, textures, draw distance, shadows and resolution. Plus when compared to its PC counterpart it holds up exceptionally well and I mean really no noticeable difference whatsoever. the game is super fun and very immersive for what the game is and that in my opinion makes it deserving of a big fat 9.

    Well, the contrast between main story line and open world side quests provide a wide verity of things to do to keep ones self busy. The gameWell, the contrast between main story line and open world side quests provide a wide verity of things to do to keep ones self busy. The game mechanics are complementary to a young gamer trying to achieve a full synopsis of the zombie apocalypse. The only down side to this game is the inadequate amount of construction materials when they are a imperative aspect of the game. Expand

    so i had this on 360 and hated it due to terrible graphics and frame rates glitches etc.

    long story short i bought it on xbox one it stills has terrible frame rate pretty poor graphics despite 1080peas and plenty of bugs behind all that is a pretty damn good game.

    undead labs should get their act together,i cannot believe anyone in that team was happy with this game and to release it to the public just annoys me when clearly minimal effort has been made.

    1080p + DLC = SURVIVAL EDITION LOL

    i want a remastered remaster

    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 !
