    You're better off ignoring that particular door, trust me on that one.

    Well shit am I atleast in the right place? Is it in that area of the palace? I found a grate on the floor in the previous room but couldn't get through. But before I died I also noticed ladders going up the scaffolding in that fire room.

    You'll have to use the scaffolding to get past the fire. If memory serves me correctly you have to go up the ladder (be wary of the zombie that's up there) and take the left side (facing the wall). Careful though, because there are quite a few zombies in the area after that (lure them into the fire, it'll kill all of them quite quickly, except for the armored ones). After that, you're almost past Buckingham Palace (for now).
    As for the grate, you can open it later, from the other side

    I run up to the fire room and got bored of dying and angry at the difficulty. (and like ShadowSoldier, I'm bad at the controls, and FPS in general. a mouse would be easier to control than analog stick.)

    I don't know if starting a new game will help.
    Either you manage to get it in survival mode, only one character surviving and keeping all your items, upgrading your character's stats (but only stats of the guns?)
    Either you will loose everything again at some point and will be angry again, and you would have restarted the game for nothing.

    why the player doesn't wear police's helmet, or armored protection to protect against bites?
    they should have allowed the player to change equipment, not only improve guns stats (that you lost when you die, and can't get again as you don't have the weapon anymore).


    I may try that game again, it's just frustrating that you keep dying and loosing everything.

    I started over, I'm doing a bit better. Haven't died yet, and I've been storing my stuff, and using the gun a little bit to level it up.

    let me just say this.. I'm confident that this game is meant to be played again.. once you beat the game and start over, you will feel slightly like a bad ass... everything just clicks a LOT better.. the first run through is ROUGH no doubt, but there is such a feeling of accomplishment in this game.. and it being hard is FAIR.. there are a TON of ways to kill zombie's... best system launch game, hands down!

    I've been watching a lot of reviews about this game on YouTube, by like IGN, GameSpot, GameTrailers and others, and everybody says it's not good. I honestly believe this is going to be one of the games the reviewers got wrong.

    Did you get the chance to play Trine2?

    I've read review saying the game is too slow paced/character moving slowly.
    I didn't play Trine or Trine2 yet.

    Can you play it solo, or is it better with multiplayer? (I think up to 3 online players can play co-op)
    Would you recommend it?

    I played it yeah. I don't know how far I'm in though as everything is basically one seemless stream. It's fun, some of the puzzles are hard. It's really not that slow at all. I'd recommend it, but I only got it when it was on sale, it's up to you if you want to pay the few extra dollars.

    So I'm actually stuck at this one door. It's a safe door after entering buckingham palace after travelling through the flats (think disco party). And there's this safe that has a weird symbol on the door, and on the painting in the room is this painting of numbers that is either

    I remember that one. The brick lane flats, right?

    A small note before opening the spoiler: this place has two doors with a special opening mechanic. One you'll need now, and one you'll need much later in the game.

    This one's for the one you'll need now:

    ...but you're most likely standing at the other door with a key lock (and I admit this was VERY frustrating...I had to search for videos how to do this):

    How do you compare ZombiU in greatness compared to Resident Evil 4?
    Sure, they're a bit different games, but they both involve killing zombies :P

    ZombiU isn't a shooter. Perhaps if there was 10 to 20 times as much ammo in the game, then yeah...it would've been a shooter. But as it is, I'd say zombiU is as much a "zombie shooter" as plants vs zombies.


    I'm not Catboy, but personally, I never got the hype for resident evil 4 (never played an earlier version either). As such, I'd say zombiU is LOTS better...but it's probably best to ask someone who actually liked RE4.

    Do you mean the tower (the room with the armoured suits)? becauseI can't remember having to return to Buckingham Palace until way later in the game.

    You really can't compare them, plus the zombies in RE4 weren't really zombies, they were people infected with a parasite. So not really living dead as more of zombified people.

    Either way, I would personally say ZombiU is the better game. RE4 was ok, but it was more action based and wasn't actually very scary. ZombiU is a true survival horror game, which focused less on the action and more on surviving, which is something that sets it apart from pretty much all survival horror games, especially recent one.

    No. It's after you go through the flats to get John Dee's thing, and then you gotta fall out of a chute to escape the building. Then you go back to the palace and there's this safe door that has writing on it kind of like a hexagram. And to the left of the door in the background is a painting that has stuff written on it when looked through the prepperpad. And following the trails of paint from the door up stairs lead to more paintings that have the same stuff written on it, I can't figure it out.

    I think I know what you mean, it's in the bunker right? I don't think you can open that door just yet. If memory serves me correctly you'll need to learn the Eunochian alphabet to read the code. At this point in the game you have to return the book to the doc, and return to the hideout and look at the CCTV to get new instructions.

    Hmm, alright. I couldn't figure it out at all. Maybe I'll leave a note for other players so they don't waste their time on it lol.
