"Problem is, to get out of the city she'll have to face 'zombies' - although in this case they're people transformed by a fungal infection"

Okay.

"There are no human enemies here, just zombies"

They're not zombies.

"There are different types of zombies"

They're not zombies.

"With the ordinary, everyday variety of zombie,"

They're not zombies.

"much deadlier variety of zombie"

They're not zombies.

"If you shoot another zombie"

They're not zombies.

"punching zombies in the face drew the ire of the clicker"

They're not zombies.

"Even if you dispatch all the other zombies"

They're not zombies.

"which will show you whereabouts all the zombies"

THEY'RE NOT ZOMBIES.

"which is not unusual for Naughty Dog, but is unusual for a zombie game."

IT'S NOT A ZOMBIE GAME!!!!

Smh... So what they are calling them zombies. Stop trying to make it a big deal. They look like zombies and act like zombies.

Why is who calling them "zombies"? Naughty Dog, you know.....the dev, has only ever called them "infected". People in the media dubbed them as "zombies", which is hysterical, given a true zombie doesn't move, act, nor think (they can't do this anyway) like that.

They're not zombies just like he said. They're infected with a fungi growth.

What I've seen of the game, there is absolutely no difference between zombies and "infected". Everything in trailer suggested game is all about zombies. If game isn't about zombies then trailer lies.

If you think about it, even in Resident Evil or The Walking Dead there are no zombies then because those people are also having an infection. They are zombies because they have an infection. The truth is that most current zombie movies and games start with infection, infection alone doesn't mean anything.

Ophiocordyceps unilateralis is a parasitoidal fungus that infects ants. The infected ants are popularly known as zombie ants

the game is nothing like what people were going on about at e3, but it looks awesome. The instant deaths and the atmosphere is something you just dont see often anymore.

which play way different than each other

Almost every zombie movies or games nowadays are all infection. So there is absolutely no difference between "infected" and zombies because zombies are always infected.

A Zombie is something that has very little brain function but has the desire to eat, due to the certain parts of the virus affecting your brain.

But being infected "whatever virus it may be", can enhance your abilities and affect your brain different ways.

So in turn both are infected, but are completely different.

They're not zombies because because zombies are dead that move. The infected are not dead, they are still alive and just not in control of themselves.

But for all intensive purposes they still ACT like zombies, but I still wouldnt call it a zombie game because I think most of the time youre going to be going up against human hunters, not infected.

Keeping the infected conflicts as a rare occurrence will add power to the encounters. It will make them that much scarier if you only see them every now and then, and without warning. Killing them all the time would just make them routine.
