Back from the Dead
Can too much ambition be a bad thing? This was a question I continually asked myself during my 20 hours in Trumbull Valley. Developer Undead Labs tries to cram a lot into this little package. Some of it sticks, while some of it falls flat. At its best, State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition is a unique zombie survival game with dozens of hours of content. At its worst, it’s a buggy, convoluted, and repetitive game that’s reminiscent of something out of the PlayStation 2 and Xbox generation. Fortunately, once you learn to accept its problems, State of Decay is a vastly rewarding and incredibly addictive experience someone could easily sink hours into.
