Overall I found the game to be a lot of fun and well worth the price. It's hard to really do the zombie killing and bashing genre wrong, and it's nice to see nobody dropped the ball on this one.
You know this game hit me like being bitten by a zombie. First I was nauseous, then I was giddy at being able to exact revenge on people, then I realized I was mindless. Actually for the multiplayer offering this game isn’t bad for the price of 30 dollars; even better if you can nab the PC version for $20. So if you’ve been hankering to put the hurt on some zombies, why not nab a copy? Oh and I almost forgot, the moral of the story here is obviously "If you listen to country music, you will be attacked by zombies."
It really doesn't work very well at all, thats really the issue. The physics of zombie killing are all screwed to hell, and the environments themselves leave a lot to be desired with poor level design and rendering. I mean, not everything has an edge guys. Apparently they ran out of "round" money in the budget, because parts of this game look like the environments were hacked out of design programmes by angry wee computer dwarves.
Als Budget-Shooter gehen die vielen Schwächen wenigstens teilweise in Ordnung, als ernst zu nehmende Filmumsetzung hat es – wie so oft in der Branche – keine Chance im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz. Auch die abwechslungsreichen Levels und Locations können nicht über die Optik von vorgestern, die halbherzige Soundkulisse und dümmere Zombies, als je ein Zombie-Shooter gesehen hat, hinwegtäuschen... Dafür steht dem monotonen und langweiligen Singleplayer ein spaßiger Multiplayer-Modus entgegen, der durchaus einige Stunden Kurzweil bieten kann. Wer von Zombies, garstigen Untoten und literweise Pixelblut rein gar nicht genug kriegen kann, sollte zumindest die Demo-Version des Spiels eines Blickes würdigen, die es hier zum Download gibt. Allen Anderen empfehle ich lieber den Besuch der Videothek ihres Vertrauens und einen unterhaltsameren Romero-Abend... "Schaurig seelenlose Versoftung zu Romeros Kultfilm"

I've played (and reviewed) a lot of bad games in my life. From Barbie's Horse Adventure, to Fuzion Frenzy, to James Bond Jr., these games all have one thing in common: they suck. Land of the Dead doesn't just suck, it sucks on many levels. There's definitely a pattern with B-rated no-name movie properties. So while Land of the Dead is a playable affair, it's not something I'd suggest to just anyone.
Hier sind nur der monotone Spielablauf und die schwache Story gruselig.
The most insane thing about Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green is that it doesn't feel like the kind of rushed, hack-job piece of work that often comes from movie licenses. Considering the fairly lengthy single-player game and that there's a complete multiplayer mode that's online-enabled, it's very clear that a group of people put time and effort into this unadulterated train wreck of a game. And that's depressing on so many levels. Regardless of whatever effort was sunk into this fool's errand, Land of the Dead is far and away one of the most atrocious gaming experiences to be found on the PC. And like the zombies contained within, it should be shot, burned, stabbed, or otherwise slaughtered until there's no possible way for it to harm anyone again. Seriously, don't play this game.
