Dead Nation Publisher: Sony
Developer: Housemarque

Platform: PlayStation 3
Reviewed on PlayStation 3

Dead Nation is standard zombie apocalypse fare, the sort caused by a viral outbreak rather than supernatural mumbo-jumbo. You've heard it before: nearly everyone is dead, wandering the remaining wreckage of the earth in search of the few remaining edible morsels. In Dead Nation, you are one of two survivors fortunate enough to be immune to the zombifying virus. Tasked with retrieving a sample from the first virus victim, you'll wade through thousands of zombies before you can bring that putrid flesh to another survivor.

Prolonged economic crises and increasingly scarce resources have strained international relations to the breaking point and plunged growing populations into unsustainable austerity measures. That's today's reality. Storm: Frontline Nation begins in 2012, when economic breakdown transforms into open war across Europe and the Middle East. The United States is carving out a presence in Egypt, while European powers compete to control the remaining natural resources, backed by the most advanced armies in the world and the threat of weapons of mass destruction. Only adroit politics, backed by a strong army, will guarantee the continued survival of any nation.

After Alice's family perished when her family home burned in 1863, she spent a decade convalescing in Rutledge Asylum before recovering enough to work at the Houndsditch Home orphanage in return for treatment from Dr. Angus Bumby. At Rutledge, Alice escaped her cruel burns and survivor's guilt by falling into Wonderland, the twisted and cruel world Alice constructed to make sense of the torments that had befallen her. Between working at Houndsditch Home and wandering the seedier side of London, Alice uncovers the suppressed memories that suggest her family's deaths may not have been an accident.
