Dead But Alive! Southern England reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Everything is not perfect, certainly, but the concept is quite pleasant. For those who have already played dead in Bermuda we find some mechanics. Sometimes you have to make choices. Having more members in their group can accomplish more action, but they consume more food which consumes more action points to get them. There are also choices to be made in the management of his group of survivors. Who to be friends with... It's not easy.

* I had this game on sale at-80%. I had already bought a few months ago at-50%. As he simply refused to function, I was reimbursed. Now I saw that a new version had been made with Ren'Py and without the fights which, according to what I understood, were archimaugo. So I bought it and the problems resumed. 1. the game crashes randomly while my group of survivors is on a mission. 2. my group is running out of food, my main characters (VIP survivors) are all smiling and in perfect health. 3. unable to have a game over, even if the base camp of the survivors is being attacked by zombies. Maybe because of the fighting less... 4. the game is extremely repetitive. Always look for food, ammunition, etc. 5. It is possible to break some characters, but the one I have succeeded in having with Caroline was short and seemed forced. 6. I played "104 days" at stake, and the story has not evolved. Yes, I met other VIP survivors well and, Yes, I had a scene with Emily and the bandits, but then, nothing more! In the end, this game seems simply incomplete.

As much as I like winter wolves games, this one is a big disappointment. The combat mechanics and even play in general are boring and repetitive. We end up playing in Visual novel mode just to avoid these boring phases, quite to have to lose survivors at each exit. The normal survivors have no influence in the games, I spent my entire game with an appalling morale because of death and repeated famines, but my VIPs were constantly smiling and the rest of the camp was finally Ok. The characters are all transparent, we have the Nice one side and the assholes of the other well delimited, no depth. There is no real moral dilemma to deal with in crisis situations far too few. The story is irrelevant and seems to be a warmed up of walking dead in much less worked. For once, no way to choose the gender of his character, nor his background. We're a lambda military officer, looking for his daughter, captured by some big bad bandits. Just be a nice minimum with people to unlock opportunities for romances in every way. In short, big disappointment, especially given the price and that the story is incomplete.
