Review: ZombiU (darkzero)

"Sometimes it is necessary to look back before taking a step forward. This is a mantra that Ubisoft has taken to with regards to ZombiU. Although this is a seemingly new IP exclusively for the new Nintendo console, it is in fact a hark back to one of Ubisoft's first games, Zombi, a game very loosely based on the same premise of the Dawn of the Dead film. It is also a look back to how survival horror games used to be only two generations ago, when the original Resident Evil was released. It's an experience that unapologetically wears its genre on its sleeves and teaches the previous purveyors of survival horror a thing or three, even if it is not quite so perfect." (darkzero) (Wii U, ZombiU) 8/10
