How long will you survive? That is the question that ZombiU asks, and the answer, if you are not prepared, isn’t long at all. After years of devolving into mutilated cannon fodder the zombie is strong once again. It’s up to you to survive in the ruins of London with little more than a low-powered flashlight and a cricket bat. And these zombies are hardly the weak shuffling masses in games like Dead Rising or Dead Island. They’ve been empowered by your inability to fight them off. This game is a throwback to the glory days of the survival horror genre, and if that’s enough to get you excited, then I’m certain you’ll merrily bash aside its flaws.
