Mines is Sam B he's the strongest and has more stamina. He's fury mode is fun going into a pissed off rage mode, and beating the shit out of zombies with a brass knuckle is satisfying. Who your Favorite character?

Yea I really like Same B aswell. But I've been playing along with my fiancee, shes playing Sam, so I went with Xian Mei. And shes really fun to play as.

My first character was Logan, some of his late game powers were sweet!

I hate them all. I wish there was the option to just play as a normal dude and not some obnoxious stereotype.

I just started today and chose Logan to start with. I'm considering starting again as Purna though, I like the Aussie accent, but I don't like the idea of having guns available at the press of a button when the going gets tough. Seems like it'd take away some of the tension.

The white dude I guess forget his name...
 
I guess he is the jack of all trades character for the game

Definitely enjoying my run as Purna. Having the gun fury mode doesn't take away from the tension because she takes a lot of damage when enemies get up close.

Xian Mei is my first and favorite character. I cannot deny the satisfying effectiveness of a lightning katana in her hands. Purna would be my second favorite; rough start, but once you get a gun, she requires quite a bit less management of resources than the others.

"I'm from Neuorlans. Loua nif wad."

And if you think that's a steriotype, talk to a rapper fresh from New Orleans and tell me otherwise. (I live and south florida and produce music, I'll save you time) haha

I played as Sam B. with my friend, who played as Logan, through the whole game and man, I got jealous.

As far as health and soloing go Sam is the shit. You get health regen, crowd control, good reach, etc...

but Logan? Instakiller from a distance...

I mean he literally gets upto a 9%(?) chance to insta kill anything on a hit... that mixed with this 50% chance to return his weapon and the high DPS of his weapons make him a crazy killer.

Sam B gets 30% chance to knockdown on hit and then you just stomp their heads.

I find the all stupid, unbearable, and very linear. This in regards to both their character and the way they play.

Purna has this ability where she stomps a dude so hard it kills him. So I use Purna, jump kick a dude, and then stomp their head in. It is awesome every time.

If you go through the game as Logan while playing solo you will hate every other character in the game as they pop out of nowhere and tell you to fuck off.
