Regardless of reviews, is ZombiU premium pack (UK) recommended?

I just wanted to know if you would recommend the ZombiU premium pack bundle, priced at £320 from cheapest online retailer with pro controller included? I was very interested in this game, i've read both sides of the critics' scales, 4.5 - 9 and appreciate what Ubisoft were trying to achive. But was thinkin of changing my mind and going for the Nintendoland bundle. Then again.... not sure.

Thoughts / recommendations would be appreciated. :)

I played it at a store and thought it was awesome!

But if I was getting a Wii U (which I will eventually) I would get Mario for it.

Some idiot is spamming and trolling in there and they're completely off any topic. I need honest oppinions, its a big decision and i don't wanna make the wrong choice...

Im getting that too, but i just wanted a recommendation about the package, Nintendoland premium, or ZomiU premium + pro controller (£20-£30 more expensive)

Haven't played it but it seems it's a "love it or hate it" kind of game, looking at the reviewer's and gamer's feedback.

But I will say that I think the reviewers which slammed it probably didn't bother with it much and that most of the hate comes from people who didn't buy it/didn't play it...

what sticky? That corrupted thread up there? good luck with that. As for ZombiU, it's still the first game I would want to play if I had a wiiU. Just look at the gameplay, keep in mind the negatives as well as the positives and make your decision for yourself.

1st ask how many ppl have the system...2nd i would never take advice from half of the ppl on here..3rd i have the game its great..but you must like slow pace games its not l4d but its good..love the system as well...if u get the game hit me up in miiverse...ultralow is my id...anymore questions?
#11 Posted by ArisShadows (22615 posts) -
As for the system, if its not deluxe, wait on it on it, you get some nice essentives (all of them you should be able to buy seperately). As for the game itself, its seems to be getting varying degrees of average/okay to decent, except for GS giving it a poor rating. The game will probably be one of those love/hate games, so be wary.. What is in this premium pack. Is it just the cotroller, and system (which version)..

I like NintendoLand, but I just bought BO2 and plan on getting a pro controller for guests to play, I also want to get zombie U, so I would say if it's a Deluxe Wii U (32gb version) get it. You can always get NintendoLand later (which is an awesome party game by the way)

You probably will be able to get ZombiU really cheap in half a year, so I would recommend the one with Nintendoland unless you want the pro controller.

Sounds worth it to me. I still need to buy the Pro Controller. If it was included it would be nice. I just got done playing about 3 1/2 hours of ZombiU. I honestly LOVE this game. I do not understand the negative reviews...the ones around an 8 I understand as that's about what I would give it. But, seriously, if you have any interest in zombies whatsoever, buy this game. The survival aspect is unparalleled.

You can have PS1 kind of textures and polygons at this time and age, why play the worst looking game of all time when there is RE6 on xbox 360 for example ?

With 100 generations better graphics than ZombiU ancient visuals

The last system with PS1-like graphics was the DS.

What are you on, man? :P

It's a launch game. Graphics on Consoles get better over time. You do realize that the Wii U is more powerful than the 360 and PS3, right...

Regardless, launch games never look fantastic. ZombiU (if you like zombie games) is a fantastic game. I don't really care about reviews. I own the game. You can spare me your fanboyism as well. PS1 kind of textures? You clearly have never even played the game. Take your ignorance elsewhere.

Oh, and with the exception of Leon's campaign, RE6 is a joke.

It really is fantastic. If you have had any kind of draw to play a true zombie game where survival is key, this is your game.

It sounds like Resident Evil for the Gamecube, which is one of the best games ever made IMO.

That's one pretty looking game. I miss this game. The last time I played it was years ago on the Gamecube.

I havent played it so my opinion isn't worth much, but if I were to get a WiiU, ZombieU would be the game I would pick up.

ZombiU seems generations behind Kameo, a launch xbox 360 title

From games so far seems vastly behind xbox 360 at launch

ZombiU is like a PS1 game in HD

RE6 looks 10-20 generations better

But it is expected from Wii supporters to like horrible graphics, after Wii they think PS1 graphics are the best

if you care so much about graphics why are you playing on consoles? also, why are you such a tool? not much to do where you live?
