Dead Nation PSN Review

Dead Nation (available via PSN)

- Excellent intro video. 
- Interesting load screen with funny or helpful tips about the zombie apocalypse.
- 2 player cooperative makes this a lot more fun.
- Creepy enough but the top-down view makes it not bad at all.
- Nice weapons.
- Simple gameplay mechanics.
- Excellent sound effects (moaning, gunfire)

- Short.
- Clumsy weapon switching (dpad), a little frenzied when you're being attacked by 1000 zombies from all sides, and your weapon of choice is empty etc.
- Trigger finger can cramp when using rifle.

Though this game wasn't the most thrilling I've ever played, it was more than I expected it to be, it was solid, not glitchy and fun (if you find shooting zombies satisfying.) 

I got this game free because of Playstation's wanting to placate it's membership after weeks of network outage.  So to me it was worth it. But even at $15, I think this is a pretty good game, as long as you don't expect it to be more than it is.
