ZombiU Can Do Better

Daniel, Game Informer
21 June 2014
  • Summary: With my recent pick up of the Wii U off Amazon, I ordered three games, and ZombiU was one of them. I had played a bit of the multiplayer with a friend, and enjoyed enough. Once I sat down after buying the Wii U and played it some more, I can safely say it's not nearly as awful as Game Informer made it out to be. That being said, it's not great. Not by a long shot.

  • Summary: The graphics on this game are OK. There are a number of jump scares that have my 10 year old son peeking through his hands at times. The game is really easy to grasp and is a great first step forward for a Wii U game. Hoping this isn't the only attempt at a good Zombie game. Keep up the good work!

A Game You Have to Play in the Dark

Julehisanvhi, Game Informer
10 January 2014
  • Summary: I had seen all the bad reviews this game had gotten when it was released, and I watched my friend play the demo and get killed multiple times and I wanted to play the actual game. I finally got the chance a year or so after it was released. The first deadly thing on the screen wasn't a zombie but a glare from my windows, which were covered. It was so dark in the game that the slightest light glared on the TV.

  • Summary: Bought this as a Christmas gift for my 16 year old son because a few of his friends have it and they all thought it was great. Walmart had it on sale for $20 less than anywhere else!! My son seems to really enjoy it. He likes how the Wii controller is used with this game. Graphics are gross enough to make this mom ban it from the living room when the younger kids are in there. Game concept is different - if your character gets bitten, you continue to play as a zombie.

Dead Potential

DesertOcelot, Game Informer
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I never thought much about ZombiU prior to the launch of the Wii U.  It just seemed like another generic Zombie "survival/horror" FPS except with fancy Wii U controls.  In fact, I hadn't even bothered to play the game until a month after launch.  At first I thought it was due to me being preoccupied with other Wii U games like New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land.

Hardcore

Reimel Jose, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: Pros: -Pure Survival Horror -Environments designed to scare -Replay Value Cons: -Minor glitches -Animations are clunky This game is not for the mindless run and gun players. You must think about how you approach a situation. Area of effect weapons such as grenade and mines do not discriminate on who it kills especially when it comes to the player character. Expect to die even when getting the best weapons in the game because of hubris.

Lots of fun but beware of some bugs!

Brian, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Game is a whole lot of fun if you love Zombie Survival games. Don't go in expecting something fast-paced or you may get frustrated; instead, observe your surroundings and really engage yourself in this virtual world and you will have a lot of fun. My only gripe with this game came with appearance of a bug that prevented me from proceeding in the game.

ZombiU Is Survival Horror, Not a Shooter.

Jack Treese, Game Informer
6 January 2013
  • Summary: My biggest critique of Wii U exclusive ZombiU has nothing to do with the game necessarily.  My biggest critique is the current game industry environment.  In an industry where great horror franchises dissolve into generic third-person shooters such as Resident Evil 6, it's too easy for critics and gamers to dismiss a game like ZombiU as another zombie shooter.
