ZombiU producer disappointed by early reviews
Guillaume Brunier says development team was not expecting such "harsh" initial feedback; says these opinions eventually proved a minority.
The Wii U's survival horror game ZombiU is a console-exclusive title that was available at launch. However, the game was released to a less than positive reception, something which reportedly "disappointed" the game's developers.
In an interview with Nintendo Life, ZombiU producer Guillaume Brunier spoke about the team's reaction to the reviews that the game initially received.
"We were really disappointed with the early US reviews," Brunier said. "We are aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the experience we created, but we did not expect so harsh a feedback. However, as more and more journalists and gamers played the game, these opinions proved to be a minority. So, right now, we're rather pleased with the overall reception of the game."
ZombiU is a fear-fuelled first-person shooter game that is designed to take advantage of the Wii U's touch-pad interface. The game boasts multiplayer modes and permanent character death, allowing the player to assume the role of various survivors throughout the adventure.
