CVG: Zombies aren't scary. They're slow, shambolic, and easily dispatched with a bullet or blunt object to the head. To make matters worse, video games have long-employed zombies as a morality-sidestepping, censor-dodging, splatter-porn replacement for people.
But wait, don't dismiss them just yet. Put them in a deserted building with a fixed camera angle, throw in a crippling control system and bin off all the ammo and you've got a survival horror.
