Fun short term zombie game, lots of zombie shooting!
7 June 2011
Summary: I recently acquired a Dreamcast, and being a collector of zombie games, the title appealed to me. I watched some previews on the internet and found out that this is actually a really old game I saw on an arcade unit back when arcades used to exist LOL. Game play is straight foward "beat em up" aka "hack n slash" but in a zombie horror setting. If you're looking for a "beat em up" style game this is one of few available for Dreamcast, so you found it!
Excerpt: Zombie Revenge is an excellent game. It is like Streets of Rage, mixed with Resident Evil. Blasting zombies to bits with guns may sound fun, but it's even more fun when you are playing with one of your friends watching each others backs! The graphics and sound are great, and the chance for multiple paths adds more depth and replay value. The guns are very good looking, you will enjoy looking around for the next.
Excerpt: Zombie Revenge is best descrived as a cross between Streets Of Rage and Resident Evil. It follows the same plot as House Of The Dead only from a third person perspective, anyone not familure with Zombie Revenge should be able to figure out what its like from that description me thinks ;) Zombie Revenge always used to be the first machine I went to play when paying my local amusement arcade center a visit.
Excerpt: Final Fight/ streets of rage with UMMPH!! This game reverts back to the tried and tested formula of: ARCADE GAME, TWO PLAYER, walk around and beat everything to a pulp (including your mate - leads to some great sulks) When I picked this product up from my local video store it was under duress from two friends in their 30's who love "simple & straightforward action games". However after spending a solid few hours playing it, it grows on your greatly.
Pros: Great Arcade Title - Good Multiplayer Mode Excellent Presentation
Cons: Can get Repetitive, just an arcade title RENT IT FIRST
Excerpt: but this one is quite cool looking, i havent got the game but i think you can be one of 3 characters, who must clear the scrren of zombies and get to the other side before you time runs out! this sounds really fun to me, i love killing zombies and doing it to a time limmit will add to the exitement, you can pick up everything and smash it into a zombie, or you can do the normal shooting way(boring), but i would rather hit them with things i pick up of the floor!
Excerpt: Another top quality arcade conversion from Sega, Zombie Revenge has it all: brutal combat, a great range of weapons, technically impressive 3D graphics, and a whole lot of zombies. Best described as a full 3D progression from those well loved sideways scrolling beat-'em-ups of yesteryear, it has players pushing ever forward into new locations, some impressively real, others all too horrific.
Pros: A great scrolling beat em up game
Cons: The levels can take a bit of time to load up
Excerpt: Zombies Revenge is the Latest Survival Horror Experience, An Arcade Translation that's so Faithfull, it's scary! The Usual Top Secret Goverment Plan to use the "Undead" as Soldiers to carry out all there dirty work! But Something gone wrong, this is where are three Agents come in Trained in Both Armed and Unarmed Combat, to put the Undead to Bed. Go it alone or with a friend, with a wealth of weapons at your Disposal the odds should be in your Favour.
Excerpt: Pour ceux qui ont déjà joué à Zombie Revenge en arcade, la version Dreamcast en la réplique exacte. Si Powerstone était impressionnant pour ses effets de lumière, ceux de Zombie Revenge sont à tomber par terre. En plus de la version arcade, Sega a ajouté quelques bonus loin d’être négligeables comme le mode Fighting qui permet de jouer avec l’un des trois héros du jeu en mode Versus à deux joueurs comme dans Tekken.
Excerpt: Zombie Revenge est tout ce qu'il y a au bon jeu bien bourrin, avec des monstres qui arrivent de tous les bords, et du sang vert (ma foi on l'aurait préféré rouge, mais bon...) qui coule à flot... On peux s'éclater à deux joueurs en même temps, la caméra bouge assez bien, ça aurait put être plutôt pas mal...
Excerpt: Réalisation: médiocre, son: moyen, fun: idem. Mis a part armes et palette de coups, un jeu bien trop moyen pour le conseiller, il reste tout de même à essayer aux vues des lacunes de la console...
