The A.V. Club writes: "Certainly no one can accuse Zombie Driver of false advertisement: You drive around in a car and run over unending hordes of the walking dead. Problem is, that's all you do. The story-as if anyone really needed an excuse or context to mow down zombies-is minimal and about as coherent as anyone would demand from such a title. After an unfortunate chemical outbreak, you emerge as seemingly the sole survivor in a city now rampant with discolored brain-eaters. And naturally, the military is counting on you and your wheels to rescue survivors and flatten zombies. Hey, if EXOR was shooting for an imaginative concept, the game wouldn't be called Zombie Driver."
