Driven by community suggestion, 505 Games and EKO Software introduce you to a new single player 3rd person view experience that allows you to re-play the zombie crafting adventure "How to Survive" from a deeply immersive point of view. Their rotten breath doesn’t smell any better, they don’t look any healthier, they still just grunt, but being closer up makes it a whole load more personal… You’ll have to survive a zombie infested archipelago crafting your own tools and weapons to fulfill your basic needs of food, water and shelter while facing natural and unnatural threats. A survival guide written by an eccentric stranger may be your only help….
How to Survive: Third Person Standalone brings something new to the table, but not enough to please those who already played the original version of the game.
It's just a new perspective for How to Survive. It does work, but depending on your previous experience with the game, it's up to you to decide whether it worth it or not.
It would have been a great free update, perhaps as an inducement to a new expansion pack, but this change to a "third person" view does not justify a standalone version.
Another edition of the ever-growing How To Survive family, this time with a new perspective... that unfortunately doesn't justify a standalone version.
Moving the camera behind the player's shoulders isn't nearly enough to offer a new experience, especially when you do so without rebalancing the whole game.
