Hello, GameMaster85 aka. Miles Edgeworth here. Obviously I am here to review this game, as I haven't seen a review of this game for good while. This is my first review, so we'll see how this goes.
Now, most reviews vote 9 or 10s if they see a good game. I work on the Perfect-to-None Scale. If its a pristine-clean at perfection game, then expect 10s. Other then that, Typical good games will get a little lower, so don't complain how non-perfect this game is.
The Gameplay is what it was meant to be. A Zombie Horde is coming at you, and you got guns and barricades. What do you do? Basically, you step into a safe room where you got around 1 or 3 minutes to set up your guns and everything. You start with a bit of cash to upgrade a nice gun, so your not in the back. Once the game starts, the suspense awaits as the players scatter to the front to wait for the zombies. After all, Kills really do mean a lot in this game. So once the music gets real intense, and you hear the moaning of the zombies, things get intense. Waves and waves of zombies come at you as the easy-to-use F key makes you aim at the zombies and shoot them at the same time. You can use your mouse for more accurate, and even deadly, shots. At one point of the game, a boss comes out, which has much, much more health, and you must work with your team to defeat it and survive.
The style is great, the interface and controls are smooth and simple to use, but the only reason this doesn't get a 10 is because the game uses too many keys and depends on a help file, and even I get lost in a bit of them. But this earns a 9, trust me.
The Presentation is quite... crappy if you don't mind my language. The first time I step into a game, Its just a picture and some typical music really. Once you get in the game, its a different story, but some icons are extremely common and are used widespread among the byond developers. A help file also helps you how to play the game. All In all, the game talks for itself, but the game just looks a little like a typical un-professional byond game.
Although, the game itself definitely makes up most of that. I mean, Wouldn't a zombie survival game get more Presentation the better the game play looks?
The game is original. It's system is also original. Theres not many other games that use this system as well. This isn't perfect though because Round Based Survival isn't such a new concept to our players.
I would have to mark this down to a 7.5, because I think a 9 is a little tad too much for a...

Criticism-on-Criticism. You never know when it hits you.
The game is good, and its a must play for a fan of byond action. Its nothing like a good Reanimated Corpse-cheese to light up while actually having a cause, which is living. This game mostly speaks for itself, and there is hardly any glitches or bugs of sort.
Great Game to play, basically. Definitely a try if you are a die-hard zombie action shooter fan.
For all the comments below, I have tidied up the counters. I've realized I'd put Originality a little too high. See the Second paragraph of the review.
