Summary: A game that took E3 by storm and showed that third party support is there for Nintendo this generation, ZombiU utilizes the tablet controller in a struggle for survival. Taking control of a team of survivors, you lead them on in their efforts to stay alive. Unlike other games in the zombie genre though, when you die there is no re-spawning. Your corpse becomes another zombie and you take control of a different survivor. Better stock up on some virucide… and Long live the Queen.
Wii U Exclusive Features: ZombiU allows the tablet controller to be used as a scanner to look for supplies to assist in keeping your player alive. Allowing for fast navigation through your rations, every second matters as it only takes one bite for your life to be over. The game has thus far been confirmed as a Nintendo Wii U exclusive, but depending on the popularity of the game it may be ported to other consoles.
Social Play: One of the best ways to stay alive is to work together. One bite is all it takes to go down in ZombiU, so you literally need to have someone watching your back at all times. If your guard goes down, you go down. Playing together locally or online will provide plenty of opportunities to work together and have a good time.
Presentation: ZombiU features detailed graphics and of course mood setting atmospheres to make the experience all the more frightening. As you crawl and fight your way through the streets of London you never know what will be in the shadows, around the corner and behind each door. One hit can take you out and there are plenty of environmental factors that hide the threats facing you. The E3 trailer displaying the Zombies you’ll be facing to the chilling God Save the Queen set the tone on how the game will be presented. Be prepared to be on the edge of your seat when playing.
