Conclusion: Zombies will not spawn during zombie kill events. Your kills will be stolen an incredible amount of times. This game has no fun factor involved at all. Everything handles terribly, the game looks terrible. and the same boring events will leave you in tears.
Summary: : Blood Drive seems like it’d be a fun time, between the Twisted Metal gameplay and the addition of zombies to an already fun concept, but the game doesn’t seem to have anything interesting to do with this concept, and the end result is a game that’s passable, but not much more.
Excerpt: You could probably guess from this that if there’s one thing I’m good at, it isn’t song-writing. No sir, you can bet the location of your secret zombie apocalypse crawlspace that if you needed a song-writer you’re better off with Dolly Parton by your side.
Excerpt: No, Blood Drive isn’t a game about donating blood. Although that would’ve been far better than what it is: a sort of Twisted Metal wannabe clone mashed up with Left 4 Dead , emphasis on the “sort of.
Excerpt: The nostalgic car-combat geek in us loves Blood Drive so much that we can’t shut up about it. You drive a car! You have sweet guns on your car! You kill hundreds of zombies with sweet guns on your car! If you have anything resembling a critical eye, though, this just isn’t gonna be enough.
Pros: + Killin’ zombies! Car combat!
Cons: - Too few match types in too-long tournaments., - Minor performance problems; some cars are no fun to drive., ? Why is this genre dead again?
Excerpt: No matter how good or bad a game is, there is always a moment when it peaks, and you feel like you’ve seen everything of worth it has to offer. The sad fact for Blood Drive is that this moment comes after only 15 minutes play.
Conclusion: Most of the modes are only entertaining for the first ten minutes, but you will be spending far longer than that trying to slog through the overly long tournaments. Which, by the way, can not be saved halfway, so you have to finish them in one sitting, with no way to restart individual events.
Pros: Some elements of the presentation aren't terrible, Soundtrack fits the overall style
Cons: Horrible controls, handling and vehicle physics, Unoriginal modes, No save points in tournaments
