Summary: " All Zombies Must Die! " is the successor to DoubleSix’s other zombie blaster previously available on the PSN service entitled Burn Zombie Burn and although it may have been two years between games one must say that things have not moved forward as much as I had hoped.
Summary: All Zombies Must Die may sound like a senseless action game, but it turns out to be a moderately deep role-playing game. Part dual-stick shooter and part dungeon crawler, Doublesix's newest zombie game has a lot going for it. Unfortunately it's marred by repetitive gameplay, too many fetch quests, lame jokes and horrendous collision detection! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Excerpt: Want to play another zombie game? How about another twin-stick shooter? True, there's hardly a shortage of either of those, but let's face it: zombies are still popular. Perhaps not so much when it comes to twin-stick shooters. Regardless, DoubleSix Games and Square Enix have brought us All Zombies Must Die! , a charming twin-stick shooter/role-playing game mash-up that seems to be the lovechild of Dead Nation and DeathSpank .
Conclusion: At the time of writing this review (15th March 2013) the game has been on sale for a few days with 50% off making it 400msp giving you all the more reason to give it a try. Overall i give it 4/5 stars, and remember this score is for an arcade title on the Xbox 360 so the scoring is far more lenient than for retail releases, although arcade titles are betting bigger and better constantly so it wont always be this way.

Excerpt: All Zombies Must Die is the other sequel to a very good twin-stick shooter about killing zombies that jumps genres and aggressively shoves bad writing in your face. But unlike the similarly misguided Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone , this one from the developers of Burn Zombie Burn has its gameplay smarts still intact. All Zombies Must Die makes a terrible first impression. It makes a terrible last impression.
Conclusion: Concept: Integrate some passable progression and crafting into the tried-and-true twin-stick zombie shooter
Graphics: Hope you like characters with exaggerated craniums
Sound: You’re going to hear a lot of gunshots and a song that rips off John Carpenter’s Halloween
Playability: While the lack of online co-op sucks, being able to drop in and out locally at any time is great
Entertainment: There’s some fun to be had in frenzied spurts
Excerpt: Zombies continue to be the hot button for games, and nowhere is that more apparent than the digital download space. The latest foray into the undead interactive entertainment arena is developer...
Pros: + Zombie slaying is satisfying, + Upgrade system is cool, + Co-op is a blast
Cons: Coop is local only, No dialogue and music is mundane, Repetition sets in quick
