I don't know if anybody else is in the beta for this one? Or was looking forward to it?
Thanks to Rittchard I was able to get a key for the beta and gave it a bit of a try yesterday. I have to say that while I'm glad it isn't just a copy of Left 4 Dead as some said it might be, I'm not entirely sold on it.
Unfortunately the first mission they give you is to defend your base against oncoming hordes. I tried that one three different times with different groups and kept failing at different waves. Not particularly fun. Oh, and you get to watch the story/intro video on levels every time you play it. Ugh.
I tried some of the other missions that you pick from a map exactly like Payday 2. I liked the idea of ones that encouraged you to be stealthy because there were too many walkers. Except they later turned into constant shootouts with other humans that wasn't so fun and ended poorly.
Overall it seems a bit slower paced, and more limited ammo than something like L4D. Which isn't necessarily a bad or good thing. But the balance feels off, particularly the health feels kind of random and crappy, seemingly going down to nothing if a zombie is next to you and they just take you down.
I may go play a bit more today, and we'll see how this turns out after beta, but my enthusiasm has been severely lowered.
