Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green is a first-person shooter licensed video game based on the George A. Romero movie Land of the Dead. Like many licensed games, Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green was made with budget-game production values.

StoryEdit

The game is a prequel to the Land of the Dead film, and takes place during the initial outbreak of the zombie epidemic. Players take the role of Jack, a humble country farmer cut off from civilization who one day finds his farmhouse besieged by a group of zombies. Jack fights his way through the zombies, first across the countryside to his neighbour's farm, then through the abandoned ruins of a nearby city. Jack ultimately manages to escape to the City of the Living with the help of a trucker named Otis he befriended at a police station, a fortified human enclave set up by Mr. Kaufman as a safe haven from the undead hordes. Jack is hired by Kaufman to clear out a luxury high-rise, Fiddler's Green, by killing all the zombies inside so that the humans can move in.

There are only two human characters in the entire game: Jack himself, and an escaped convict named Otis who allies with Jack for a couple of missions. An un-named doctor and Mr. Kaufman from the film also briefly appear in a couple cutscenes, but have no dialogue.

GameplayEdit

Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green utilizes traditional first-person shooter gameplay. Players can use a variety of either melee weapons or firearms to fight through the zombie hordes. Some weapons are capable of dismembering the zombies, while other weapons are not.

The Multiplayer Component of the game consists of many online gametypes. These consist of your average deathmatch and team deathmatch modes, but they also decided to throw in a co-op survival mode where players are trapped in a small map where they must survive for a chosen amount of time. In this mode the weapons respawn in the same spots every time, allowing the players to dodge the burden of ammo shortages.
