Pros:

-Nice Intro Screen
-Creepy Atmosphere with a lot of Detail!
-Awesome setting and background
-Perfect zombie balancing
-Cool references using signs and landmarks
- Customized scenario events!!!

Cons:

-Some maps are a bit too long compared to others
-Encountered A LOT of bugs that need fixing ( and some of these bugs were very harmful to gameplay)
-Campaign can get extremely boring at some times
-Survivors do not have good scripts/dialogue when playing

Conclusion:

I am going to be honest with this one, although the pros really make the map cool, the cons take over even if the list is 2 short. I did not like this map at all and what's still not cool is it's in its complete version. The problem is the bugs. The author has not taken a moment to fix these bugs. Everything was fine until map 4 when these crashes and bugs came in to place. In the end when I almost finished the level, I died. Well, the reason is that rift bug, well the bots jumped into the water while we were on the rift and all died. I almost made it to the saferoom but some infected got me.

Although, for that last statement, I was not trying to be offensive to the author. I like the map and it looked cool but the cons of the map were too much for the fun to stay. Some of the maps were too long and tiring and I was just wishing for a 2 minute break at the saferoom, without slaughtering zombies the whole time. You already know about the bugs. Please fix them ASAP. The campaign can also get very boring at some time. "Boring" isn't a tolerable word for me in video games. I look forward to more fun in this map. Also, the survivors do not have a great dialogue that relates to the campaign. I mean they do have dialogue, but no perfected.

To the author, I know you may be focusing on other maps such as Vienna Calling 2 and more but for once, this map isn't great ATM. Please take a few hours or days to fix this and make the map better. Although, sadly even if you do so, I will not be returning to this map again. This is my first and last review for this map as I will start to play the sequel but anyways, I ain't very happy and expected more from its average ratings. :(

Pros:

-Good atmosphere
-Level design usually interesting and intuitive.... usually
-Contains a number of breathtaking sights and landmarks
-Pilot of helicopter in finale speaks in German, a nice touch
-Many funny signs and graffiti

Cons:

-Some areas were very confusing to navigate, especially the final level
-Bots get stuck quite often, sometimes even get stuck on nothing at all
-Not enough melee weapons or ammo spread about maps, especially the first map
-Second map's horde event with the door that closes is a master stroke of stupidity
-Finale arena very plain and boring
-Final level is far too long for a finale; a stroke of bad luck will find you spending another fifteen or twenty minutes fighting your way to the finale
-Final level contains breaking floors, which often mean that you lose half your health for no good reason, especially if you're dancing with a Special Infected

Conclusion:

Sometimes found myself laughing and having a great time, but more often than not I was getting frustrated with the level design or the bots' behavior.

Worth a play-through, but I don't think I'll be coming back to this campaign again.

Pros:

- Good atmosphere
- Nice design
- Well-placed hordes

Cons:

- Leaving the initial building seems repetitive
- First map is too long
- Bots won't help you if you fall at one part of map 3
- Raft is SO slow in map 4

Conclusion:

In conclusion, this campaign is really entertaining as well as challenging, but if you fixed some things it would be even better. Great job.

Pros:

• Captures the Setting of the City being in Ruins
• Very Detailed
• Brilliant Level Design
• Pretty Good Horde Events
• Very Good Effects and Lighting in Map 5
• Pretty Long

Cons:

• First Half of Map 1 is dreary
• Near the End of Map 2 gets a little frustrating
• Map 3 is just appalling
• Slow Raft
• First 4/5 of Map 4 is bad
• Bots failed to climb ladder at Map 4

Conclusion:

The campaign is a little satisfying but majority of the time I was very bored that a headache had developed. Co-op made the experience a little better but it doesn't stop me from wandering off into oblivion on seeing and making me see the proper bright side.

Despite the good details, designs and structure, the overall gameplay isn't as entertaining as I hoped it would be. The Finale and some areas do make the experience worthwhile.
