ZombiU Attempts to Cure an Undead Genre

"Like cocaine in the '80s, Tamagotchis in the '90s, and McMansions in the aughts, zombie fiction is this decade's go-to fad. Every medium has recently been inundated with sordid tales of the undead, and video games are certainly no exception. This past year alone has seen titles like Dead Island, The Walking Dead, Deadlight, and all manner of games including the word "dead." So how does a company like Ubisoft try to make their entry into the world of flesh-munchers stand out among the pack? The answer may seem foreign to some, but ZombiU (I really, really hate that name) has piqued my interest via a healthy dollop of simple originality. Yep, that's all it really takes.", writes 1Up.
