i was really looking forward to playing this after missing out on the original release.
the premise of maintaining a following of NPCs during the zombie apocalypse appeals to me.
however, i returned my rental copy after 30 minutes or so, mostly for performance reasons.
not a good 'remastering' effort

the fonts were too small to read, which always irks me.
framerate couldn't be maintained and was easily diminished just by spinning the camera around.
lots of blurry textures.

i'll likely try again some day with the steam impulse edition

Really? I had no issues with reading anything and really no problems with the frame rate either, redid the whole beginning till after you get to the church and didnt have any issues really, I read a review that mentioned it still had issues but I really havent seen any yet....its a good game, I played about half of it on the 360 and this one looks A LOT better and of course comes with all of the DLC

Odd.....

I picked this up on Tuesday and never played the original.
Only put in a little over an hour so far (will play more this weekend) but I thought it was fine.
No problem reading any text at all. Framerate didn't bother me (it almost never does) and while some textures were a bit blurry, I found the game itself to be fun and interesting.
