AWESOMEoutof10's Liam Dean laments the over-saturation of Zombies in the medium. "It is such a good premise, in fact, that games designers have been cashing in on it for ages. The zombie game has just been done to death, if you’ll excuse the pun. It’s everywhere you look these days from the tacked on FPS zombie shooting modes of Call Of Duty to the supposedly “shocking” tourist hacking of Dead Island: Riptide. Even though it garnered quite a lot of positive critical reception, I even found the recent indie game Deadlight to be a pretty but essentially boring game that had none of the tense desperation or creeping dread that usually comes with the territory. In many cases, these games feel like rushed and hackneyed interpretations of George A Romero’s masterpiece instead of homages created by fans of the genre. A cynical person could even say that many are shameless cash-ins designed to pique our interests and prey upon our natural curiosity with the undead. I’m afraid I am one of these cynical people."
