"Ok i thought not another ZOMBIE game AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH" but start playing and you realise that this is one fun and entertaining little game and it has a brilliant sense of humour (not all jokes are for CHILDREN though so beware).
You start the game in the town square and it all feels a little "ZOMBIES ATE MY NEIGHBOURS" but play some more and you come to realise that it isnt that game at all and rather a sort of arcade game with slight rpg overtones in it.
Now i say slight as when you clear the first screen and get onto the next after solving a few fetch and carry missions (fun to play and not boring ones) you then have to clear the police station of all the zombies and then the police station becomes your base from which to set out from to complete missions and find the relevent items you need to upgrade the weapons you have (also when rummaging through the searchable items such as garbage cans and cupboards ECT-you find the developers cards and then you activate the "DEV CARD HUNT CHALLENGE").
Keep playing and eventually your team grows to 4 members (now i wont say what they all are so as not to spoil the surprise-YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO GUESS WHEN PLAYING I DID) each bring different weapons to the game and also the chance to upgrade your weapons with different abbilities also,at certain points you have to play as each character as not all characters are allowed to pass all gates or complete all quests.
Now if you die whilst doing these quests and havent got through the gate to the next level,the game will put you back to the start of the level and you will have to try again (even if you did find that elusive weapon part) and this is the part of the game that frustrated me the most (but actually in a good way-READ ON) but also came to be the best gameplay element in the game.Now why do i say this,well i will tell you why and its really simple "IT MAKES YOU PLAY THE GAME BETTER AND THEREFORE GET BETTER AT IT" upto the point where no matter how many zombies are on screen you can and allways feel like you can do the next quest and beat all of the damn things.
Now this brings me to the security gates,some open straight away (and all the ones near your base open with no quest activated) but others set you an in level challenge,say to kill 10 zombies with the criket bat or set 25 zombies on fire ect but all these quests are fun and offer a little in game distraction from what you were doing at that moment.
The graphics in game are great for this sort of game (the zombies are all funny and shuffle around in typical comedy zombie fashion),the sound and music in game is also good and the script is funny but some jokes arent really aimed at the younger generation ("WHAT DID THAT GAME JUST SAY MUM" "ITS OK BILLY WILL EXPLAIN WHEN YOUR OLDER").
All in all this game is well made and adds a needed comedy injection in the arm to an allready over populated genre of game.So if your looking for another ZOMBIE game and want something a little different give this one a go and you want be dissapointed "BBRRRRAAAIINNNNNSSSS".
