    I loved this game entirely too much. After I played the unholy shit out of it. (I.E. Unlocked EVERYTHING, including that fucking 14 hour boxer shorts achievement) I was kind of sad, as I wanted to KEEP PLAYING, but I kind of ran out of things to do.

    Sequel now plz, Capcom.
    there is an achievement for the boxers? i keep them on all the time, i giggle so hard at the big ugly dude killing zombies with a chainsaw in his underwear
    No, if you get the 7-day achievemnt (which takes 14 hours) you get the red hearts boxers as a reward. Like the 5-day achievement and hte light saber.

    My second favorite game of this year.

    As for soundtracks, as I keep telling everyone:

    Send More Paramedics is pretty much the best thing you could ask for.

    I have yet to nab this achievement for some odd reason. I thought it was similiar to the parasol achievement, where you only had to knock down ten total in one play session, but alas, the shit isn't working. do you actually have to knock down ten with one throw?

    10 in one attack, so just go to the tunnels and bowl down a load of em in one bowl. Think of it like getting a strike.

    You have to finish the game. Just go stand out on the helipad and let the game clock run down. I finished with about 12 hours left in game.

    You are completely incorrect. It in no way forces you to restart from the beginning of the game. When you die, you have the choice to "save and quit" which saves your stats and from when you died and starts you at the beginning, and "resume from save" which predictably allows you to resume your game from your last save (wherever that may be in the story).

    I don't get why people are confused with the save system. Reload at your last save is pretty standard for most games. Once you start getting really powered up, Frank turns into a god damn powerhouse. Do not underestimate the power of the books in the game. I did until the 3rd or so restart, then I breezed through the rest.
    Dammit, I know how the save system works. I was referring to a specific scenario:[spoiler:97a071472e]You obtain a different ending for failing to collect all of Carlito's bombs on act 7-2.

    Other than that, there's really nothing scary in it. It's a very silly game.

    Or you could reset the console and resume from your last save. The game doesn't delete your saves. You can go "Oh damn, I fucked up" and hit reset, just like any other game with a save system. You're right that the game doesn't tell you "GAME OVER". You're able to play on. But you can restart.

    The alternative to that is to play till the clock runs out so you can level up, and restart as a house. Which frankly, you have to do. I don't think it's possible to beat the game without restarting a couple times.

    I dunno. The very start of the game in the entrance plaza place, when they first break in and suddenly BAM! you are faced with like a thousand zombies I felt a little, well a huge amount, intimidated.

    I beat it on my first playthrough; though that required playing through a few areas multiple times, a LOT of running away from the convicts and a lot of getting my ass handed to me by bosses. But it's totally doable.

    I think I wound up at level 36 from playing through 72 hour mode and then overtime mode. Only rescued about 20 or so people on that playthrough though. (Enough to get that achievement)

    The convicts aren't that hard..... get a tree between you and them, and light their asses up. If at all possible, kill their gunner and steal the gun from them, and then proceed to ruin their shit with it.

    I really should get to beating this... I was at the end of the second day or so when I accidentally saved and quit.... and I can't play it now because my 360 died on me :(

    the VERY FIRST thing you should do is ignore the survivors, plot, missions and everything, and head for the parking lot. try to pick up the zombie kill bonus book on the way(The parking lot is accessible only from the courtyard. it's on the west side. just hug the wall and head for the large empty space there.)

    once there, jump in the red car, drive down the nearby ramp into the underlevels, and turn left. head down that path until you reach an area LOADED with zombies. do some donuts until reddy breaks, then get in the van that has it's lights on. once in the van, retrace your steps and head out to the lot, run over zombies until the van breaks(the van's a lot tougher than the red car) once it does, get back in the respawned red car and head to where you got the van. repeat until you unlock the Zombie Genocider achievement. then get an ending. I prefer going to the helipad and waiting until the timer runs out.

    at the new game, head to the left once you enter the largest room in the safe area, behind the heaters and ducts, and get equipped.

    IMO, the game should be beaten the first time without hte Megabuster, so you get an apprieciation for it.

    Yes. I agree with this.

    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow. He won't leave his inn or his memories, so there he waits....in ambush....

    Beat the game in my first playthrough. I died twice because I got captured by the Cult and knocked off the tank by army man.

    Great game and one of the reasons I own my 360. The moment I saw a Zombie on a construction drill in one of the trailer videos, I had to have this game.

    Just rented this and it is quite fun. I am completly ignoring everything right now and just killing Zombies. Screw that story. :P

    I'm only level 2 now and I'm a little worried. What the hell should I do? It's night of the first night and once the lights went off in the mall I freaked out.

    Also,

    [spoiler:a41909fe9a]The Queen Bee jar attack thing is SO handy.[/spoiler:a41909fe9a]

    Should I worry about any missions? Do I have to? Can I just have mindless fun? This game is great, but, I have two complaints.

    [spoiler:a41909fe9a]Screw those guys in the jeep and the damn other photographer, so damn annoying. The other photographer's flying kick is cool though, got me 4000 and some PP when he did that.[/spoiler:a41909fe9a]

    I do, but, the damn text is readable(kinda), but still tiny. Like, the missions on the side are very blurry but some of the other things I can read.

    Basically it's recommended that you fuck around and do whatever you want your first time through the game. You can do missions and rescue people, but ultimately you don't need to really try to do anything. Everytime you save your game, it saves your stats (level, abilities, etc.) which carry over into future games. So when you beat it hte first time, you can play through it again and do the missions, and it won't be as difficult since you'll be more beefed up then.

    Guys, if you get the convicts stuck behind a tree you can take out the gunner with a pistol, then kill the other two with the machine gun on the jeep. It takes about thirty seconds to kill them when you do that.

    I'm also one of the people that bought a 360 for this.

    Tips for beginners:
    Submachine gun:
    [spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]As you exit the warehouse, go to the staircase on the right. From the staircase, jump to the blue awning to the right of the staircase (that is, heading back in the direction of the warehouse). Frank should pull himself up onto the ledge. Run to the end of the blue ledge and pick up a submachine gun.[/spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]
    Katana:
    [spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]You can get as many katanas and swords as you want from the knife shop (northwest section under construction) and the antique shop (entrance plaza), but there's also one on the orange awning outside Columbian Roastmasters[/spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]
    Shortcut near warehouse to Wonderland Plaza, good for avoiding the convicts:
    [spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]Kill Adam, the clown, save the guard on the ride, follow him to the bathroom. He shows you a secret passage.[/spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]
    Game-breaking chainsaws:
    [spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]
    Kill Adam, pick up a mini-chainsaw. Stop the ride to help the guard, chainsaw respawns, pick it up again. They also respawn every time you enter wonderland plaza. You can also extend their life 27 times with three books: murderer biography (blades), construction, and entertainment. It makes the game too easy, though.[/spoiler:d7a4a8cefb]

    so, yeah, just top make sure it gets said on every page:

    THIS GAME WILL WORK JUST FINE ON AN SDTV, DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE.

    I hadn't even noticed if the text was too small, it's only through people whinging that i've given it any attention. Honestly, if it's too hard to read, go see an optician?

    edit: and the save system is not what you get in other games, but as long as you go in knowing what it is and what it does, you will be fine. You get one save-slot per account. That's all. No more, no less. It won't delete your save when you die, it won't format your hard-drive, it won't swear at you if you have a sound card.
    Just one save slot.

    Don't let trivial complaints put you off an frankly (lol pun) superb game.

    Case 7:

    The easiest way to defeat any boss is a high-damage melee weapon. If you want to break the game, use the mini-chainsaws; if you want to play more or less as intended, use katana. Note I used katana plurally, because they break if you sneeze too hard.

    I just drove around collecting bombs until Carlito found me. I hopped out of the car and slashed him up at the driver side window of his van. Then, I finished collecting the bombs with the last one in the NorthWest cul-de-sac so that I could drive the non-broken van back to the entrance.[/spoiler:9837fa59bf]
