ZombiU UK review :D

Post by Xanthos on Thu Nov 29, 2012 11:40 am

Hot of the heels of the American reviews of ZombiU getting rather low scores, the UK reviewer for ONM (Official Nintendo Magazine) have something different to say.

What is it? A first-person survival horror game like no other, you play as a survivor of a great plague in London who has to defend himself (or herself) against zombies in our capital city. With the threat of one bite killing you, Ubisoft has asked the question: what really would happen if zombies roamed the streets of London? You certainly wouldn't be able to heal yourself with herbs. A slow-paced thriller, ZombiU doesn't follow the trend for Resident Evil 6-style action-packed horror and delivers a truly unique launch game.

What we said: There are no gimmicks here, just pure well-integrated gems of gameplay that add to, rather than distract from your enjoyment. It's not perfect (no online multiplayer or true Miiverse functionality), but its flaws pale into insignificance next to the success of the game's sumptuous, atmos-fear and its terrifyingly conspiratorial premise. ZombiU will send shivers of fear and excitement up and down your spine in equal measure: it's the perfect showcase for what the Wii U is about.

Score: 92%

They would, as they always do disagree with Nintendo.

But i'm going to go ahead and trust them on this one. I don't always trust ONM but on this one i will.

Me too. Everyone over here in the US is reviewing it like it's a another action-fps and it's not.

I don't really like the way Resident Evil has gone, which is why i've been excited about ZombiU since it was first announced.

Loved the original 3 RE games cause it was all about survival, now i can finally get a new survival horror game, that i know nothing about, cause i could walk through RE1/2/3 blindfolded i've played them that much.
