IBTimes ZombiU Review

ZombiU has no idea what it wants to be. On the surface, it's a first-person game with arcade pretensions that awards points based on how long you survive. But beneath that is a predilection for realism, narrative and verisimilitude that violently clashes with its pick-up-and-play style. It's neither fast-paced fun nor weighty horror; it wants to be a "core" survival game, but also has the responsibilities of a Wii U launch title. (Wii U, ZombiU) 6/10

Zombi U knows Exactly what it it. True survival horror. I guess judging from the reviews, some are really good reviews and some are really bad. I guess that for this game more than most games, it is really up to your taste in games. I for one if I were to review it would give it around an 8.0. Its moody, atmospheric, tense,scary, and can be pretty damn hard.

I couldn't disagree with this review more. Multiplayer is excellent, giving both players a completely different but equally exciting experience. The core single-player is brutally hard but still fun (and terrifying).

I'm sure the game isn't for everybody but I don't think the reviewer in this article actually "gets" ZombieU.

This reviewer is an idiot. There is no way this game should be scored below an 8.5 out of 10. Yes there are several ways version 2 can and will improve on this. But this game is unique in its gameplay schemes and should be measured as such.
