My love of zombies and lack of anything better to do made me take this game for a spin. I'll admit, it's a game I've asked for: a browser-based zombie/survival game like Urban Dead, but with actual graphics. When you log into your character you aren't actually in the game, you're just at a "hideout" website. This works rather well with the various locations within the hideout taking you to things like an auction house, message boards, customization station, and so on. You have a radio that you can click at any time to open a small window to a chatroom for the game. I rather like the way they've set this bit up.
Then, you hop into the game. You can select singleplayer or multiplayer (hosted games chosen from a lobby). You inevitably run around looking for supplies and killing zombies. This part feels like a cell phone game. It's top-down with WASD movement and mouse aiming. Your torso can rotate 360 degrees independantly of your feet which, while not actually affecting gameplay, does lend the game a low-class feel. You are sluggish even when sprinting, but so are the zombies so that's fine. In my experience as a guy with some knife, if there is more than one zombie, go to the next zone. It didn't feel particularly zombieish to me. Zombies once aggroed would follow you around the area you were in regardless of whether you ducked around a corner or not. Searching things yielded nothing. Searching broken cars would always reward me with the "too bad it's broken" line. I can see it's broken, I want to know what's in it. I just didn't really have any fun, and I really wanted this kind of game.
One thing I really do commend them on: you can be a chef, and you have to eat occasionally. I like that. Survival involves basic needs, not just killing zombies.
Maybe I'll be bored again and give Dead Frontier another shot, but for now I'm giving it a 5 out of 11.
