    Its awesome - The last stand level is ace too. Not easy at all.
    Bots as usual are useless so don't even give it a thought :D

    Bugger me that's hard work with bots. Best we could manage with 2 players was 6:05ish. Ouch.

    Best we managed with 4 players was just over 4mins on the lighthouse map.

    I played a few rounds of lighthouse, then a couple of others, think I can safely say that ive now grown out of survival mode.
    The novelty wears off pritty quick.

    3:07 on the lighthouse map with 4 people. We argued for a bit about where the best place to go (I wanted to hide in the bathroom,) but eventually we just went up to the top next to the light.

    Survival is okay for a quick blast when you don't want to do a full campaign I guess.

    Played this last night- other than the servers being borked by the release was pretty fun, damn hard though.

    For those that havent played it, they have blocked hiding/camping spots with brick walls and boxes, and in the generator room on no mercy they have blocked the darkened back area with fences so, i assume, you cant run the tank around in circles.

    Fun game mode, managed just over 7mins yesterday, played through a few of the levels and got bronze on each after a 2nd or 3rd try, working towards getting all bronze on all levels, just wish the game would tell you which you had completed so far!

    The lighthouse map seems damn hard, your instincts tell you to get up high as you can shoot down and beat off any climbers, but everyone falls prey to the smokers :(

    tanks are fun too when you have two of them to deal with!

    Did have one of my steam friends boasting about 19minute survival time...

    The lighthouse is hard... we managed 5:22 on it at one point...
    We also got 12:48 on the generator room map... that was intense! At the end, the last two survivors got swarmed by 2 tanks, 5 smokers and what seemed like an army of hunters... EPIC! :)

    Yeah, it's great so long as you have Internet access for multiplayer. You can either join or host a public lobby or jump into an already running public game.

    Bit also has a community on Steam:

    it's ace. when you start getting towards the gold standard and they just keep throwing tanks at you... and you're all out of molotovs... and you're low on ammo... and smokers have got your friends... you hear another scream of the oncoming hoarde... absolutely epic!

    It's difficult to get past the usual attitude of setting things on fire and running away.

    Once we got past that boundary me, a mate from uni and Stickeh just got ~11 minutes on The Church without too much trouble.

    The temptation to shoot the petrol canisters at random is so strong..
    It makes for some hilarious failures when it happens accidentally and a chain reaction starts.
