The Last Stand: Union City is a zombie survival shooter game and the third game in The Last Stand series. This game diverges from the previous two games in the series by focusing on exploring and introducing RPG elements.
At the start of the game you'll create your character, choosing a class that determines the starting strength of certain skills. As you kill zombies, you'll gain experience points and level up, which awards you points you can spend to increase skills and stats that suits your playstyle. Whether you want to blast zombies from afar, blast them in the face with small arms or get personal with them using melee weapons, there are multiple skills to customize. Just hover over a particular skill to get a description and plan ahead. If you die, you can choose to respawn with an experience point penalty, or just exit to the main menu to reload your last save file.
The game has two difficulties to choose from. "Run'n'Gun" mode means your character does not require food and sleep. "Survivor" mode is more difficult since the lack of food or sleep can kill your character. While finding something to eat is largely left up to luck and your survival skill, you can only sleep in Safe Houses, which are few and far between.
The inventory system is a new feature in the game series. Almost every screen has multiple closets, drawers, or other containers to search. Most of the items you'll find are trash items and they are easily identified as such, but you may also find weapons, ammo, healing items or clothing. There are various different articles of clothing available to wear purely for cosmetic reasons, with the exception of armor which reduces damage taken. There is even cash that can be used in King-o-Pawn stores to purchase additional items. Each item in the game has a certain weight and you can only carry so much weight, depending on your stats and skills. Fortunately, you can find storage chests in the safe houses and whatever you put in one, you'll be able to pick out of any other, similar to storage chests in the Resident Evil games.
Skills and StatsEdit
Stats consist of Strength, Endurance, Precision, Intellect and Luck. Each stat point increases the associated skills by one point. Skills determine the player character's ability to perform specific tasks and the proficiency with each weapon type.
Your character is keyboard controlled and you use the mouse to aim and shoot/attack. You can hold down the shift key to sprint as long as you have stamina. Occasionally, if a zombie gets close enough to grab you, you'll have to rapidly tap the key shown onscreen (usually A or D) to shove them away.
The player takes on the role of a survivor trapped in the fictional city called Union City. The story begins when the protagonist is returning to the city from work, when the car crashes into a zombie, stranding the protagonist amidst the chaos of the zombie apocalypse. The protagonist must survive by scavenging for food, weapons and other supplies, finding safehouses to take shelter in and fighting off the city's infected population. The protagonist travels searching for his/her spouse. On the way, the protagonist meets other survivors who may accompany the player or provide them various quests to complete. One of the survivors that you find late in the game is Jack, the protagonist of The Last Stand and The Last Stand 2.
