State of Decay is a unique zombie survival adventure that mixes elements of Dead Rising with RTS ideas in an open world with safe house improvements. All of this adds up to a very enjoyable experience that can be approached several different ways. Sometimes you’ll find yourself using stealth to sneak past undead hordes, using bushes, similar to that of Assassin’s Creed; there will be other times when you’ll want to tackle a mission head on, and get into a vehicle to mow down the “Zeds”.
The story begins with two survivors up at a camping site in the northern section of the map. After being away for so long, they missed the undead outbreak, but you’re immediately put into combat, rushing to save your friend Ed. It works and quickly gets you into the action.
