Repost from another topic:

The only issues I've seen so far are zombies clipping through some walls/doors at times (not too common), lack of/badly implemented mipmapping/anisotropic filtering, and some light stuttering in a few places (it might be how the game loads, I'll have to try it on my SSD; the download size was only 1.9 GB).

I doubt this issue is specific to PC (it's probably just how the game works and it's not an issue), but the cars are a little "loose". The driving doesn't feel like it would in a modern sandbox game (like GTA IV or Sleeping Dogs). It's still very fun, but it's not very realistic and the cars can get stuck on weird bits of terrain if you go off road.

On to the game itself, it's pretty fun so far. It's a zombie action/survival/strategy game all in one. You can have loads of fun just going out and killing zombies, but supplies are limited, so you'll have to be careful and scavenge for more. Improving and managing your base is also a big part of the game.

The game is also pretty good in terms of production and quality. I've seen big budget, AAA games of lower quality before. Also, Jesper Kyd is the composer, which is cool.

I haven't had anyone die yet, but there have been some very close calls. I'm about six hours in. I think things are going to get more interesting as I go through the game.
