    Don't let the technical flaws push you away; State of Decay is one of the best Arcade Games to date

    Rated on June 06, 2013 by TheGamerPhenom

    Do you remember the days when games took chances? When there were more new and original IPs and ideas, as opposed to just seeing the next game in a series? Well, State of Decay is paying homage to t...

    State of Decay has a lot to offer someone looking for a great survival experience that is challenging, yet rewarding.

    Rated on June 06, 2013 by BigZman95

    More often than not, today's games focus solely on the action and forget the details. Sure, I love mindlessly shooting terrorists and hacking away at zombies for hours on end just as much as the next ...

    State of Decay is not a perfect game buts it's pretty close. The biggest issues with the game come down to it's lack of polish, however looking past an often choppy framerate and horrible pop in (most...

    This zombie game is re-writing zombie game history, if you're a zombie fan. It's worth the $20.00.

    One day I'm sitting there playing Gears Of War: Judgement and I'm frustrated, I turn off the game, jump to the Xbox Home, and there's this zombie game that caught my eye. So I downloaded this game ca...

    A great zombie game that should never be compared to a full price game

    Rated on June 07, 2013 by FalconerX

    The main thing to take into account with this game is that it is unfair to review it as a full price game. It is an XBLA title, one that cost me £10. I cannot compare it to a game like say Skyrim that...

    You're huddled inside of a house with a few of the only remaining survivors of the zombie outbreak. The boards in the windows are the only things standing between you and the converging zombie horde. ...

    Even with it's problems, State of Decay breathes new life into the zombie-survival game genre.

    Rated on June 10, 2013 by abnergoinbig

    Neighborhoods are empty, my skin burns from walking in the sun all day, and it seems that birds don't exist anymore. 15 feet away from grabbing my neck, a horde of zombies are running as if a brick wa...

    If you were expecting DayZ for the Xbox 360, this isn't it.

    Rated on June 11, 2013 by Flanns2

    Being the fan of zombie games I am, I was happily surprised when this little title popped up on my Xbox 360 homepage. I shelled out the few dollars needed for the purchase and immediately began playin...

    For a $20 arcade game this is everything you would expect and more. Could easily sell for more!

    Rated on June 12, 2013 by QuadThumbs

    For $20 you can not go wrong. It will keep you busy for hours and when your done you'll come back for more wanting to do things just a little different. If your looking for a DayZ type game this rea...
