If you are looking for a left for dead style zombie game this isn't for you, but if your looking for a new innovative way to kill undead while fearing for your life every step of the way then look no further. The wii u pad touch control is flawless, even when your trying to reload in a panic as 3 zombies close in on you. I could go on and on about the greatness that is zombi u but why would i when i could be playing this game... They did a great job ubisoft is on a roll!!!
With all the publicity this game has gotten, it seems like the best game on the Wii U...I wouldn't exactly call it the best though. This game starts out by throwing you right in the middle of a Zombi hoard, along with panicking you have to figure out the controls in like 5 seconds or your dead before you take your first step. The game isn't exactly as exciting as it was meant to be, at first yeah, it is exciting and keeps you on your toes, but after the first...10-20 minutes, it starts to get a little boring and repetitive. Also it's a tad too slow, Zombies don't really attack all that much, just a few here, a few there, maybe a hoard you can easily evade over there. And I don't quite understand the storyline. At first I thought the whole idea was that your the only one that hasn't been affected and you have to escape from London to some sort of safe place....but I read the actual story line and apparently your trying to find a cure or something. Which doesn't make sense because if the whole world is diseased like this then I doubt there'd be enough of the cure to heal the whole world.
Pros: Awesome graphics, perfect sound effects, music that fits well with every scene, the controls are nice, gameplay is interesting.
Cons: Repetitive, gets boring after a while, storyline doesn't quite make sense, genera is incorrect (it's passed off as a "first-person shooter" but is really a "Survival horror")
If your a fan of the more "action packed" survival horror, then this isn't for you, i'd recommend you to the "Resident Evil series"
If your trying to find a game to sort of start you out into the Survival horror series then this the game for you.
But don't ever knock a game before you try it.
