ZombiU: Why I ignored negative reviews

John Vekinis:

Like many others, in the build up to the Wii U launch I was consumed by the hype. Many a review was read and trailer watched as I awaited getting my grubby mitts on the system. By far the game I had the most vested interest in was ZombiU, simply because it's the game I chose to pre-order well in advance as my launch game. Judging by reviews, it seems ZombiU ended up dividing opinions more than Marmite and I was pretty worried that I would be wasting my money on a mediocre launch game. But along came ONM's review, a noble score was dished out and I immediately felt better.

Find a reviewer you trust. We can't play every game that comes out so it's not surprising that we lean on reviewers to help us make purchasing decisions, but make sure it's from a source you've vetted against your own tastes.

For example, I find Destructoid to be all over the map when it comes to reviews and I don't trust them, plain and simple. I swear, sometimes it seems to me they low-ball scores of popular games that everyone else is raving about simple to stir up negative sentiment for hits. It's dishonest, and I won't use them because of it.

Reviews are intended to inform and hopefully aid the consumer in their purchases. Personally I utilize many reviews before buying a game, because this hobby isn't cheap. Anyway it's your money and you can do what you like.

This game has many great ideas from looting with the Wii U GamePad to permadeath to its spooky setting, but none of them grow into a great game.

I really liked the game. It seems with this game people Like it or they don't. I really liked it, It was Much better than RE5-RE6, Not that 5 was bad, BUT it should not have been a RE Game. Resident evil used to be a GREAT survival horror game, and that is What Resident Evil means to me. Zombi U is a really good survival horror game. It did take getting used to the gamepad, but it really adds to the experience. It makes it MUCH more realistic. You just can not get the experience on any other Console, at least not yet. Now I would love to see Capcom make a RE game like they used to...and see a port for it on Wii U.

The negatives:
graphics are bad,
animations are bad,
combat is dull and repetitive,
game is incredibly buggy.
no depth in the story

The positives:
scary survival setting
innovative ideas

This game had so much promise, and even though i prepared myself for disappointment I cannot believe how badly this game was made.Ubisioft rushed this game for wii u launch title. This game is Mediocre at best. Not bad, just mediocre. 5/10
