Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

What do these ratings mean?

A great game that has a lot to offer but requires a 32" TV inorder to read any of the onscreen text. The gameplay is fun and the greaphics are quite good. The sheer number of characters that can be displayed on the screen at one time is also quite impresive. The save system sucks but after getting the hang of the system becomes less of an annoyance as the game progresses. The actual zombies are great fun to kill and the blood is a great aspct of the game as is actually looks realistic compared to so many other games. The tools used in the slaughter can be found all over the mall and some are quite inventive such as CDs and cans of paint. The timed system of the game, 72 hours to complete the main missions, means that you can not freely wander arround the mall to your hearts content which is sad after realizing how much detail was put into the mall but after completing the game other gameplay features become unlocked that allow you to do just that, wander arround and destroy as many zombies as you can before you die. Overall, this is a great game that has a lot of features that make it a lot of fun to play but at the same time the brutal save system makes completing the game a some what tedious chore at times. My main complaint was that this game was clearly made for people with widescreen TVs and as a result all of the text and on-screen instructions that help out the player are imposible to read on TVs that are not HD or bigger than 32". Apart from that one detail the game is great and just a blast to play.
