ZombiU | Review - AWESOME/10

Writer Fraser Brown finally puts his last zombie back in its grave and reviews ZombiU. "Survival horror titles walk an extremely fine line. They need to scare and oppress the player, causing them to feel weak and isolated, but at the same time the experience must be punctuated by moments of empowerment. ZombiU does at least attempt to do this, but in cheap ways that, more often than not, lead to frustration." (Wii U, ZombiU) -

I for one, love this game, but the mixed reviews show me, that there is a biased hatred toward nintendo from most of the game media. how in the hell does one reviewer say the play control is great, and another says the controls are wonky.
one reviewer says the graphics are great, while another says the grahics are muddy.. so which is it?...are all the reviewers playing the same game? I CAN understand a critic saying the slow pace did not work for them, and found it boring. fine, i disagree, but i accept that. but i own zombi u, the controls are not wonky, or bad. so how can a game have bad controls for one critic, and yet another critic says the controls are great?... how THE HELL CAN THE SAME GAME HAVE GREAT AND BAD CONTROLS?....
this is not ones opinion, it either has great controls or it doesn't!! so what is wrong with these critics? i wonder if this game had been the same game for the 360 or ps3, then i wonder what they would say? no matter what nintendo does, most of the video game media wants nintendo to fail. so trying to hamper the sales of zombi u by giving false info in a biased review to try to keep people from buying the game.. that's why i always tell every one, do not listen to the biased critics, rent tge game for yourself. see what a great game it is. critics are so out of touch with gamers, that i hope, the websites end up like most of the video game print media, get shut down.. gamers are already ignoring many of these, and if they do shut down, it will be nobody's fault but theirs.

But if all the websites closed down how would you come up with these hilarious conspiracy theories?

It's worth noting that controls, aesthetics and a whole bunch of other things are open to interpretation. Some players found the controls (particularly the melee controls) to not be up to scrarch, just like some reviewers, while others found them fine. Logic would suggest that these people simply have different standards, not that there's some ridiculous anti-Nintendo conspiracy.

What you are suggesting is that, if several reviewers find the controls fine, every single review should parrot this regardless of what the reviewer actually thinks -- that would be absurd and completely unhelpful, not to mention insincere.

one game plays the same for every person, the controls just don't change by themselves, sorry for your stupid logic, even a five year old knows that what i am saying is true, but hey what ever helps you sleep at night champ!!!

oh look, i am playing halo, the x button works fine for me, but not my friend, his x button is wonky!! please, how stupid is that logic, go back to sleep my friend, maybe you'll think more clear in the morning!!!

I fear that no amount of sleep will allow anyone to understand what you are talking about. The issues with ZombiU have nothing to do with broken buttons. The problem is with the feel of the sole melee weapon, which is demonstrably open to interpretation. Some people find okay while others find it sub par. I fall into the latter category.

The review never called the controls broken, so your asinine and out of place example is rather meaningless.

It's rather amusing that you would mention logic in your rather bizarre comment when you clearly have no capacity for such a thing yourself.
