How To Survive: Third Person Standalone reviews and comments

This is only the "Recoil" version of the original game, here very badly programmed for the gamepad, jerky and not really playable. The original was more dynamic. No real interest. Damage...

A very bad surprise the same as the first opus with a graphic revised upwards. Go your way if you made the first opus or wait for a promo. Ah! If, a new character.

Hello, the Game itself is really very nicely built and also the new View. But still, it annoys me a Lot that there is no Coop Mode so far. I wanted to put it with a Buddy and we both got very annoyed when we learned that unfortunately there is no Coop Mode. Conclusion: The Game is a really good Game all in all, which is a lot of Fun. I can recommend it to anyone.

Definitely not recommended! This Game is simple and simply not for the normal shooter or How To Survive Types no matter what you prefer. As AN HTS player, it destroys the perfect Game series! And as a shooter gamer you have nothing of it because it was simply Kept too simple (the Combat system) the game is good hard but otherwise disturb the name signs that you can see from your friends or oneself. And no I have not found any possibility to stop this. MFG, LtMost.

Have bought me the 3rd Person extension in the Sale for £1.99. At First I really looked forward to carrying out my wild Zombie in 3rd Person fashion. But even after about 5min I was very disappointed. 1. I just had to start completely new, no Savegame transfer nothing. 2. The Zombie Fights are much more difficult because the Controls have definitely not been rewritten for the 3rd Person Version. I know these are few Points, however I find it really just makes a lot more of a mood in the previous version.

Unplayable, or how not to improve but put even more zombies with a game play that does not follow. It is impossible to climb on a mound, impossible to jump running... Luckily I paid 2 euros... because the old one is better qualified and the game play is related. The story mode is fine. The mod ' a chance to get out ' just a poorly qualied game, pity and for the masochists it's for you. For an update they would have fated an acrupee position and the fact of climb see of consturction would have been perfect.
