I have it. I thought it was fun although I am a big fan of the movies. The game was short and the zombies repeated themselves a lot. If you can find it cheap I would get it. Best weapon is the kung-fu fists.

There's a trailer for the game on the LAND OF THE DEAD DVD. It "looks" like a fun game, even if the graphics aren't leading edge. No one I know has it, and the only B&M store that carries it is Fry's Electronics. Unfortunately, I don't have an Xbox (only a 360) and it isn't on the backward compatibility list.

Never played it but I stumbled on this Gamespot review the other day:

Yeah the only thing I have seen on this game is on Gamespot's video of "The Most Dubious Honors" I think it was called. It won several awards I believe.

It is bad. I rented it and couldn't stand playing it.

Did you get the Kung Fu fists in the game? I believe you can get them in the second house. I enjoyed it.

I played a demo of it and found it to be mediocre at best. Then, I read the review, so I'm probably going to stay away from it.

I don't know if I can side with Gamespot on this one. They keep seeing things in Quake 4 that make them rip that game whenever possible, yet I see nothing at all wrong with it.
