The Marmite of Videogames,
This review is from: ZombiU (Nintendo Wii U) (Video Game)
This game will appeal to those of you who are masochistic. You will die in this game...you will die a lot. And when your character dies, that is it, you cannot bring them back with a 'credit'. You start from the safe house where you save your progress as a completely new character. Your old dead character will be where they fell, but now they are a Zombie, and must be killed if you want your equipment back.
It is a very intense survival horror game, and feels a little old school despite the fancy new technology it is running on (and it really uses the WiiU's concept of having 2 screens very well). You should definitely try before you buy, and dont be expecting it to be like Left for Dead of any other first person shooting game. This isnt intense action, it is slow paced, nerve wrecking horror.
*Very hard...it is great to see just how long you can survive each time.
*Good use of the new technologies concept of having 2 screens.
*Interesting 'asymmetric' multiplayer mode.
*A great return to survival horror.
*Bad graphics. The WiiU is capable of far more (see the Black Ops port on it, or Assasins Creed 3, bith of which look better on WiiU, than on other consoles).
*Maybe too hard for some people.
*No online multiplayer, or co op.
I am giving this game a 3 star, because although I like it, I can perfectly understand why some poeple would not enjoy this kind of game. If you love hard games, and like survival horror, read my score as 4 stars. If you like fast paced action games, and are a winp, read my score as a 2 star review.

This is a survival horror game, people should already know what to expect. Scores and reviews are not made in 2 halves, a 3 for people who dont like it and a 4 for people who like it makes no sense. This is advertised as a survival horror hardcore and difficult game and people should already expect it. This was never advertised as a fast paced action game, therefore this review makes no sense. It's like giving a bad score to call of duty because it's not an RPG.
Putting a review down because it might be too hard for some people? Well, never heard of anyone putting down call of duty because its far too easy. Makes no sense. Being hard can be a positive or a negative depending on the player, but I dont buy Gran Turismo expecting to be as easy as need for speed. The buyer should know if it is hard or not but it should not count for the review, only as a piece of info.
Someday we'll get people putting down games because its an RPG and not the popular shooter.
If this was just another zombie shooter then people would be complaining that it would be more of the same.
