Review: Dead Block (XBLA)

Diehard GameFAN
11 November 2011
  • Summary: While I admire some of the ideas at work at the core of the game, playing the game is a painfully boring experience. Dead Block reduces a zombie apocalypse to button mashing, constant mini-games, sloppy combat and playing hide and seek with guitar parts. It’s just not fun.

  • Conclusion: Strategy evolves around finding guitar and speaker parts in the house by searching objects, whilst keeping the zombies out by blocking up the windows/using traps. A lot if button mashing to break items for wood and to search, and simple puzzles to collect bonus items to enhance your character.

(Xbox 360 Review) Dead Block

The Entertainment Depot
16 September 2011
  • Summary: On paper, Dead Block has some interesting ideas in the tower defense genre and a promisingly cheesy survive-against-zombies-in-the-50s aesthetic; in practice, it’s a tiresome bore.

Dead Block Review

  • Summary: " Dead Block " was dead boring to me.

  • Excerpt: Let’s face it: with all the undead appearances in videogames and pop culture, few of us still perk up at the words “zombie game.” Which makes it even more amazing that Dead Block has put a fresh face on the shop-worn corpse-killer.
  • Pros: + Expertly captures the campy ’50s B-movie feel., + An amusingly fresh take on videogame zombie-killing.
  • Cons: - Combat a trifle clunky; no online multiplayer., ? Who knew zombies could be “rocked” to death?

  • Excerpt: Picture it: 1950’s USA. It is a simpler time: gas can be bought by the gallon with only a few pennies; the ‘golden age’ of cinema is in full swing; and rock ‘n roll is sweeping the nation. What’s not to love, right?

Dead Block Review (XBLA)

Gamers Daily News
19 July 2011
  • Summary: Repetitive to the point of genuine boredom, Dead Block starts off strong before quickly falling apart. Its charming ’retro America’ motif can’t overcome weak game mechanics, keeping Dead Block well below its competition.

Dead Block Review

11 July 2011
  • Excerpt: It's important for us to remember that zombies were people, too. Some are fast, some are slow and some look and dance like Michael Jackson while getting pelted by anthropomorphized flowers.
  • Pros: + Melting pot of gameplay styles, + Retains tense nature of zombie genre, + Partner AI smarter than other games, + Melodramatic style mixed with good sense of humor
  • Cons: No online cooperative play
