ZombiU

 

Aside from its kind of lousy name, ZombiU is a cleverly crafted and legitimately scary game that Wii U owners should absolutely consider. A

ZombiU is definitely not a game for everyone, mostly due to its unforgiving design and flat fiction. But few horror games really make you feel like you’re in a desperate struggle for survival, and few action games command all of your attention...

How long will you survive? That is the question that ZombiU asks, and the answer, if you are not prepared, isn't long at all. After years of devolving into mutilated cannon fodder the zombie is strong once again. It's up to you to survive in the ruins...

It’s the kind of thing that leaves a terrible aftertaste, making it difficult to look back upon the whole experience and wonder if it was any good at all. And you know what, there were amazing times to be had. ZombiU is an atmospheric game that can be...

ZombiU Review: Testing the Wii U Waters

 

Ubisoft and Nintendo's newest survival horror game feels a bit too much like a proof of concept.

If games could be judged solelyby a list of their interesting featuresand mechanics, ZombiUmight be one of the better launch titles of thepast few generations. Ubisoft's foray into survival horror takes theWii U's GamePad and creates an experience that...

ZombiU review: Anarchy in the U.K.

 

Keep track of all of Joystiq's Wii U launch coverage on our Wii U hub page! I have twelve pistol bullets left, one crossbow bolt, a Molotov cocktail and about half a dozen zombies between me and freedom. I've spent the last half hour on an undead...

It has been foretold that the world as you know it will end in 2012… London is falling! Are YOU prepared?For the second time in history, a great plague has descended upon London, infecting the human race with a deadly disease. Big Ben tolls as hundreds...

ZombiU Review

 

There's been no shortage of talk about this Wii U first-person shooter, but does ZombiU define the launch lineup?

Expert review by:

ZombiU Review

 

With an uninteresting world and dull combat, the survival horror game ZombiU is a weak link in the Wii U's launch lineup.

Fun multiplayer modes capitalize on game's strengths

Heavy emphasis on dull melee combat ; Uninteresting puzzles and mission structure ; Wii U gamepad adds little and hurts immersion

The Wii U gamepad functionality doesn't contribute much to the game. The pad’s functions include displaying the map and your inventory, and being the place where you tap to interact with things such as wooden barricades or manhole covers. When tapping...

We take Ubisoft's flagship Wii U launch title for a spin. Find out if is a must own for new console owners.

True survival horror ; Multiplayer is unique ; The tension is amazing

Multiplayer lacks variety ; Visual deficiencies ; Controls feel loose

A survival horror game with first-person shooter mechanics, ZombiU places gamers in a plague-ridden London. Acting as the player's survival kit, or

ZombiU review

 

At launch, there were only really two Wii U exclusive titles worth getting excited about: New Super Mario Bros U and ZombiU. The latter we have been playing for a good while now, with Mario now safely completed and put to bed.

Fun gameplay, London looks great, Different

Sells itself short

A great alternative to Nintendo Land, but not the "must have" Wii U launch game

ZombiU

 

A different kind of zombie for a different kind of console

Tense, brooding atmosphere ; Brilliant use of the Wii U Pad ; A serious challenge

Unforgiving difficulty level ; Backtracking and repetition ; Average graphics

ZombiU is all about self-preservation through preparation, carefully gathering flares, grenades, molotovs and the painfully inadequate supplies of ammo, and watching for any signs of zombie action. Loud noises tend to attract your brain-hungry chums,...
