Good games last night thanks. Few random smokes in the difficulty and a lack of rifle ammo but fun otherwise.

Sorry I had to leave a little early. Problems with my shoulder making it uncomfortable with long fps sessions.

No worries Curried Cat, I had plenty of rifle ammo, I think we need to pick up all the ammo and each one of us have a different gun. We can then drop the ammo for the person running short.

I did swap when I could but we then died and I only saw rifles after that. Typical!

Games were pretty good. But I have to say (and I'm sure this will not be a popular thing to say) I didnt think that much of it.
There wasnt actually anything wrong with it. (Difficulty was a little all or nothing but its not finished so).
But there wasn't anything about it that made it any better than say WWZ either. Infact I think I prefer WWZ personally. There certainly seems to be much less going on.
Felt like they have just given the weapons spangly categories... but they didnt feel any different. Picked a couple of assault rifles up for example. Some normal, some rare, some epic. But they all felt the same.

It felt a bit like it was missing variety in the missions.  I miss the collect fuel tanks to get the car out of the mall in L4D, that sort of thing.

Luckily it's on game pass so we can try the full thing for nowt.

I felt a little disappointed it was too similar to left dead and yet if they made it different from left for dead I would have been disappointed too no win there. For with world war z and even left for dead, I knew the reason we were doing each level didn't feel a story as to why we were out fighting the zombies but it is a beta.

Weapons I mainly stuck with SMG, I did see a difference between normal rare and epic. You'd get better sights, silencer, more ammo capacity and general handed better. Was upgrading then at the store between levels and think that where we were lacking it getting the right equipment. Medic bag, Ammo bag, tool kit, stun gun etc.

With world war z you felt you were in an epic zombie battle with loads of zombies with back for blood zombies were a little too few and only felt in trouble when the special arrived on since but that's just for left dead truth be told.
