    Stunning trailer for what could be an interesting game. Techland have a lovely engine for this kind of environment and the damage system they were talking about a couple of years ago sounds good but we shall wait and see I guess. We know they are competent at the least this could be the big break for them.

    Best trailer I've seen in a long time. Hopefully they make the story and gameplay as good and not just another generic zombie game...

    Very good trailer.
    I long for a game that will make be feel the same as when the first Resident Evil and Silent Hill did - the closest thus far has been Anmesia.

    Thanks for the recut! was watching it this morning, and although I had pieced it together, watching the recut is even better! (Although it has less impact than the forward backwards one)

    Nice trailer, I like the idea of taking out most of the firearms. Gives it a more realistic feel as it defo easier to get your hands on a fireaxe then an uzi :D

    OMG, that is by far the best game trailer I think I've ever seen.

    I know I'm a mum but it actually brought tears to my eyes. I dare anyone to find three minutes from any zombie media that is more emotionally charged.

    Can I be the first to say.

    Far Cry + Zombies.

    Could be good, but if they bring the emotion from the trailer into the game I'm going to have a hard time playing it!

    That is some f@ck-d up sh*t man, anytime you get the kids involved it hits some core nerves. Reminds me of that opening scene in , was it the Dawn of the Dead remake where the neighbors little girl came knocking on the bedroom door? That was messed up.

    I love good zombie games and will definitely keep my eyes on this.

    Been waiting for this one for AGES, first read about it in a Gaming Magazine, wow, that musta been a long time...

    This was announced before the flood of zombie games happened, back when Dead Rising gave us a taste of what was to come.

    Hopefully it makes it to release and lives up to the promise. (I Think Computer Gaming World had a feature on it), video game news in a _Magazine_ ? So strange..

    That zombie on fire reminds me of the titles to that old TV show "Tales of the unexpected", except that was a woman and not a zombie (probably)
    God I feel old for knowing that.

    That is an utterly brilliant trailer, best i've seen in a long time. I've loved techlands other games, so I have high hopes for this one.

    Also, when she first reverse-smashs through the window, did anyone else get reminded of the Wii adverts?

    Awwwww, such an emotional trailer. I really felt empath for them.
    Right, i'm off to play L4D2 to fight off a hoard properly.
