ZombiU: The Unsung Hero Of 2012

Gamer Euphoria writes:

''While the Wii U may be faltering on a number of fronts, I have still had some of the best recent video game experiences on the console. Oddly the newest system on the market managed to recreate some nostalgia, and I’m not talking about Mario.

ZombiU was one of the most refreshing games I’ve played in the last five years. Sure the concept of anything zombie related is now long in the tooth, but ZombiU managed to make the undead threatening again. When ZombiU was released, the market was filled with games in which players would lay waste to hundreds of zombies for laughs. ZombiU went in a different direction, a single zombie could end the players life. It added a sense of challenge to the game , as well as forcing the player to think out each encounter.'' (Wii U, ZombiU)

First game in a long time that had me counting bullets in increments of one.

Yeah, it felt like that thing the Resident Evil hasn't been in quite sometime, what was it? Oh yeah, survival horror.

Unsung hero of 2012? Um. No.

Thank you for sharing your opinion.

You explained your side of the argument very well, Thirty3Three. Now I know why ZombiU is not the unsung hero of 2012. If you have any other thoughts on various games and subjects that you'd like to elaborate as well along the lines of "Um. No", then please tell me so I can read it. I look forward to your in-depth analysis!

Best zombie game of 2012 for me. Very underrated.

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed is the king. The game's decent but unlike demon's souls where each death was my fault, in zombiu most of my deaths were due to the clunkiness of the game. The devs said it was intended but I don't think so.
Maybe if they had invested more time this game would have been great.

when ubisoft released red steel for the wii at launch, everyone went apeshit over the new fangled controls and hype of 'like using a real sword'. but in hindsight, red steel obviously wasnt a great game that will live long in the memory of gamers. however, i feel that Zombie U is different, in that it indeed HAS been under appreciated and in time gamers will look back and reminice how great a fit it was for wii u and that the gamepad, grimy visuals, high death rate just sparse gameworld actually was just the shot in the arm that the survival horror genre needed (especially after resi 6). anyone with a wii u should try it with the lights out. just dont expect gears of war graphics haha.
