    I was hesitant about getting this game since it got awful reviews. However after a friend told me to purchase it I decided to give it a shot. Having just played about 10 hours I cannot say too many bad things about t... Read Full Review

    WHY I CONTINUE IN THE FACE OF CERTAIN DOOM.

    I've played it repeatedly. Over and over. I suck at the bat. Six and above head shots to kill nothing yet now I know why I hate it but refuse to stop playing: I lived there for ten years. I love that city. I graduated w... Read Full Review

    Love/Hate Zombies

    Always wanted to love this genre. Hated playing Resident Evil 4 because it puts me too much on edge during the game (yes, I get scared of playing it. Not proud to say, but when Zombies surprise you from behind I get jump... Read Full Review

    The best game I've played in years. Negative reviews make no sense.

    I've been a gamer for many years and own Xbox360, PS3, and Wii-U. I'm a big fan of first person shooter (I'm a light prestige master on Call of Duty Black Ops 2), and decided to give this a shot, even after reading the m... Read Full Review

    When you aren't facing game-breaking glitches, ZombiU is a thrilling, genuinely scary ride.

    Pros: Tense, deliberate gameplay; Great atmosphere; Genuine scares Cons: Even scarier game-breaking glitches; Most combat encounters are a little too simple; Terrible, terrible name I wanted to stop playing ZombiU... Read Full Review

    ZombiU is a great addition to the survival horror library.

    The current review on GS lists some of ZombiU's best parts as some of its best. "Your ability to run is limited" is one of the first comments that Maxwell McGee says about this game is his review. However, this isn't a b... Read Full Review

    Not bad. Game pad thrills

    This is a good game with quite a few things about the gamepad to immerse yourself with, as the back of the box summarizes! I have only played the easy setting (there's 2) and died over 30 times. The game is "go to this... Read Full Review

    Not a great game but at least is wasn't a bust. I enjoyed it.

    7 ZombiU Image Completely unique. Take Atlus from Bioshock telling you what you need to do, Dead Island type zombie combat, Left 4 Dead type graphics, Dark Souls type difficulty, and an English setting. You get very ... Read Full Review

    ZombiU isn't the WiiU's killer app, but it's a unique, scary and fun experience.

    ZombiU is a great game if you don't look too deeply. For a zombie-apocalypse survival-horror game, it's surprisingly innovative. Using the WiiU's touch pad as the ultimate survival tool, used to hack, scan, and chart out... Read Full Review
