      "Project Zomboid is a fun third-person sandbox approach to the Zombie Survival genre. I struggled with the game at first because I tried to loot the biggest caches - noob mistake. You need to level up and gain weapon skills in order to successfully find bigger caches of weapons and supplies. I liked the realism of needing to find basic supplies and sleep. I also liked the AI, which was predictable but fun."

      "I'm spending more time trying to manage the poor control interface than to be able to enjoy a cult classic. This app needs work immediately because as it stands right now it is a failure of what a game is supposed to be. It's not fair to release this game for iOS when it's a poor port. We might as well play it on a different system that can manage controls better. Learn from other games as a example on how to make a better control interface. Bioshock pulled it off well. It would be easier if you could at least resize the dpad and to make your character perform a action just by pressing the right side of the screen instead of having to hit a tiny context sensitive icon. It doesn't make any sense. To the people who ported this game, fix it."

      "One of the most controversial games ever released to the public, and for good reason. Manhunt is as gritty, nasty and uncomfortable as video games get. It’s almost overbearing. Every inch of it’s levels are full of grime and grit, with eerie reminders of the awful things that have taken place within them. It’s story is populated with utterly monstrous characters that kill, torture and maim for either their safety, greed or for pure pleasure. It’s deeply cynical game with absolutely no heart. And I think that was the point. It’s a brazen, ghoulish celebration of violence and horror, as twisted and immoral as they get, and has no pretensions to be anything else. Almost holding you down and asking you “Is this really something you enjoy doing?” It may sound like I despise the game but I actually really enjoyed my time with it. No matter how raw it gets I was still very much engaged with it’s setting, story and tense if a bit dated stealth gameplay. I was drawn in and wanted to see more of what it had to offer and how it was going to end. I don't know if there can be a middle-ground of opinion with it. You'll likely either love it, or hate it. But for what it sets out to do, it does it admirably and with skillful craftsmanship. If that sounds like your jam well then have fun."
