Land of the Dead Review
Written by: missmars
Sometime ago an unimaginable catastrophe destroyed much of human civilization. The recently dead, for an unknown reason, had returned to life and taken the lives of their living brothers and sisters. These "zombies" multiplied rapidly by adding to their ranks with every new victim. Many years later, the dead greatly outnumbered the living.The remnants of humanity fled to a city, where a feudal-like government had taken hold. Fiddler's Green, the center of this fortress city, is where the rich and powerful lived in luxury while the rest of humanity lived in poverty around them. Paul Kaufman, leaving no room for freedom in his kingdom, rules with an iron fist and overwhelming firepower. In order to ensure his dominance, and upscale lifestyle, Kaufman financed the construction of Dead Reckoning, a fortress-like vehicle that could venture out into the world with relative ease. Riley Denbo, both the designer and commander of Dead Reckoning, has had enough and just entered retirement.
Unlike Kaufman, Riley is respected by the citizens of the fortress city for his work to protect them from a dangerous world. Meanwhile, Cholo DeMora, the 2nd in command of the Dead Reckoning team, has gone rogue! With the Dead Reckoning, as well as the rest of its team, he sets his plan into motion. With no where else to turn, Kaufman and the city elite turn to Riley to fix the situation. Riley is in a race against the clock to stop Cholo from exacting his revenge and killing a lot of innocent people in the process. With a new threat on the horizon, will humanity be able to survive a new onslaught? Is humanity even worth saving in the New World?
