ZombiU Review | EuroGamer

EuroGamer: "I'd always wondered why ZombiU was one of the Wii U's pack-in games, and finally it makes sense. ZombiU isn't the obligatory FPS launch title, but an original twist on the genre that has no console equivalent. It's not quite a revolution, lacking the scope and variety of mechanics to compete with high watermarks like Half-Life 2. But that should take nothing away from Ubisoft's achievement, and the success or otherwise of ZombiU could be defining for Wii U." (Wii U, ZombiU) 9/10

Some of the sites didn't get their review checks in time.
This one clearly did.

If game informer gave it such a low score I'd pretty much think its not as good as we thought given game informer is pretty generous with scores.

This game is like marmite; reviewers either love it or they hate it
LOGICWINS  +   612d ago
No one has said they "hated" it. The lowest score so far is a 6.3...which is better than average(a 5).

Game Informer gave it a 5/10...

Really? Thats interesting. People should deffo read these reviews to see if these "cons" apply to them. Most people aren't that nitpicky. Hopefully this game turns out to be a worthwhile investment to anyone who buys it. It would be a shame to wait in line out in the cold for an hour or two to play a stinker of a game.

"No one should "believe" reviewers blindly, but use them as a guide."

Aren't they the site caught fluffing reviews for cash and banner ads?

No one should "believe" reviewers blindly, but use them as a guide. That's the way it has always been. And if what you have read has guided you from buying the game, then that is a personal judgment based off available information. Nothing wrong with that or with buying a game because of a review... so long as you have come to understand what you are buying.

I think we need to stop believing Reviews and judge from our selves.....

Wait you're telling me I have to play a game first hand to form an opinion on it? BLASPHEMY!
LOGICWINS  +   612d ago
Not everyone has that opportunity, unless you have a friend that has a Wii U or you play it at a kiosk somewhere. From what I hear, ZombieU wasn't available to play at kiosks before release. With these mixed reviews, I'm beginning to understand why.
mrbojingles  +   611d ago
Then don't form an opinion on it, just repeat that "I hear this" about it.

This is the rare occasion where I miss renting games.

I feel like this game is going to have reviews all over the place. It's a game where if ur into super easy fps and everything blowing up all the time its not a game for you. It's a game mad to make you feel alone and trying to survive. That means not finding weapons all the time and just have a grueling time surviving. Which some people are going to hate and some people are going to love. Which is why your going to see mixed reviews
LOGICWINS  +   612d ago
Being into super easy fps games didn't play a factor in these reviews. Thats a silly assumption. You make it seem like if a gamer enjoys one style of play, then its impossible for them to enjoy another style of play.

I have friends that love COD, but still make time to play Killzone 2, Journey, Portal 2, Skyrim etc. People aren't as black and white as you may believe.

Many of these critics have been reviewing games since the PS1 days. Trust me...they know what they're doing. If they have even the slightest bias towards a game, they will give the review to someone else. Greg Miller let Colin do the Infamous 2 review because he knew he had favoritism towards it, being that he used Infamous 1 to cope with his wife leaving him.

I see what your saying. I myself love games on all consoles and playing different type of games. But I feel that sometimes people expect games to be more like call of duty. Kind of like some people saying halo should have the iron sights like call of duty. I just feel that some of the people that I know personally will.not like a game because of its difficulty. But I have not played zombie u yet so I cannot have a real opinion about it.
