Tons of fun, and easy to just pick up and go. Dont have a lot of time, but need a few minutes of game time? Most of these levels only take a few minutes to complete. It is, however, hard to put down once you get started. Well worth the $.

Well it's hard to either recommend this game or not. But since the negative things overweigh, I choose to not reccomend this game.

The positive things:
- Mowing down zombies which explode. Fun!
- Bonus for mowing down even more zombies.
- A game that doesn't need any explanation and is simple.

The negative things:
- Driving can be very frustrating, since you very often get stuck on some stupid corners. And half of the time you're maneuvring back and forth and back an forth and back an forth, while insulting the bad controls with a very foul language.
- You never see what's coming, since the camera angles (no matter which one you chose) takes away any sight or fun. For that I have to say I was never a fan of the first two GTAs.
- Time limits, time limits, time limits. Of course not every mission has to be completed in a certain amount of time but it's annoying as hell if you do have to. Why do game makers don't realize we hate time limits as much as we hate escort missions?
- Most of the time you're searching for a route to your objective. The map is very confusing and of course your objectives are at the most far end of the map. The military has helicopters, but f--- this s---, let's just send a normal car instead. Only the city is completely overrun with zombies and world is in peril, but that's fine. A normal car will do.
- The cars are a joke. I understand that you're beginning slowly with a taxi, a limo, a van, and that every car has its specific speed, passenger seats and maneuvrabilty. But they are boring and it's not really getting any better. No special cars or anything. The bulldozer and the tank, which are FUN AS HELL, you're only allowed in one, two missions. Yeah, just take the fun awaw from the player, I don't think he doesn't mind at all.
- The ending. Really? It seems the creators of this game lost any interest or motiviation.

The things that don't matter:
- For a simple game like this it has an evolving story. Which doesn't make sens. Because yeah, let's send a taxi driver in a city overun with zombies to get some crucial things, while the bulldozer and the tank and all the military stays at the base. Makes pure sense. Why not a person on a bicycle, just to make things interesting? Yeah, take this, zombie! *bashes zombiehead with club*

Things that could make this game awesome:
- A camera angle which actually puts some fun and clarity in the gameplay.
- More cars / vehicles which also look differently after upgrading.
- Cars that feel like cars and not like toy cars or bricks.
- The option to buy upgrades before you start the mission. Not finding powerups during the missions. That's uninspiring and fun-breaking. Even with the upgrades your machine gun only has 300 rounds - if you pick up the flame thrower, the machine gun's gone. Mission briefing, upgrading the car, killing zombies. What is the problem? One can never concentrate in mowing down zombies. Instead you're constantly on the lookout for said powerups.

Overall, it's a decent little game, which could be an effin awesome game, if they just would have put some awesomeness in it. I did not finish the game and after failing in a mission several times and watching videos of the last missions on YouTube, I'm glad I didn't finish the game.

The objective of each level is to navigate the vehicle through the confines of the city while completing missions and killing Zombies.

PRO:
+ Great graphics
+ Weather is changing from sunny to rainy
+ Over 100 Achievements on Steam
+ You can upgrade your CAR and Weapons
+ 3 Mods:Story Mode, Race Mode and Slaughter.
+ Steam Cloud
+ Steam Trading Cards
+ Variety of attacks depending on the specific zombie type
+ Leaderboard competition, checking out stats with your friends and worldwide
+ It remembers me of GTA II gameplay
+ There will be also some Special Vehicles that you will drive in story mode, nice touch there.

CONTRA
- Only 7 Cars without any DLC
- No free DLC
- Only 1 map in Story mode, I was expecting more maps

CONCLUSION:
Rescue isn’t coming, you just have to go to the last mission and kill the father of the Zombies.

This game reminds me of Death Rally. If you enjoy top down zombie killing, worth the pickup. Story mode was not overly long, but I could see me coming back to replay this for a "quick fix"

Simple premise - zombies have resulted from a large explosion at a corporation trying to cure cancer, and everyone is infected. You are a talented driver (I guess) and you are recruited to help out the army as they try to evaculate or establish a base. Missions are fun, fast and filled with satisfying gibbing of zombies everywhere. Typical mission is going to pick up a few specific survivors to help build the base (Doctors, Shipcrew, etc) or going to defend a specific objective. There are secondary objectives, and the game does a good job of mixing up the mission objectives.

Simply put, this is a great game to sit back and relax with, slamming into a billion zombies. I have only played the Campaign so far, but there is two additional modes to the game! Really excited to dive in further. Absolutely worth the price paid.

TLDR; Fantastic fun arcade driver game, in the vein of Carmageedon and others. Splatter zombies, equip and upgrade vehicles. 8/10

This game is a really great new twist on a classic style of game. The old game series where you'd fly a helicopter around, saving guys with your ladder and fighting enemies all over the map as you did little missions.

It's like those old games but with a slightly customizable car selection and zombies. Grab it if you like zombies and see it on sale, it's a very fun smaller title.

Only get this game if you have a gamepad
game has keyboard controls but it's not precise enough in my opinion.
also of note is that keyboard controls can't be configured although I worked around it by using autohotkey.

recommended because I can't say I'm not recommending it with the very little I played (yes I'm missing a gamepad)

Fun, attractive game, if you like driving and killing zombies, this game is for you, but some missions are really hard and I nearly smashed my keyboard, because too much zombies who throw stuff like barrels on car and it makes surviving too hard. Graphics are nice, some places looks beautiful, story is interesting. I recommend this game. :)

TL;DR: Take the fun of Carmageddon, the viewing angle from GTA (the original ones) and strap weapons on your taxi and you're good to go on a quest to save the city.

In Zombie Driver (HD) you are some dude who drives a taxi. Military ("if they even are the military", says the random hippie) enlists you to save a bunch of civilians in a zombie infested city. Mow those zombies! Mayor will pay you a bonus for their smashed bodies! Gruesome, silly kind of humour is cultured in the overly dramatized monologues everyone else gets to give you when you meet them.

Zombie driving gets a lot more fun once they strap a machine gun to your car. Later, you'll get equipped with flamethrowers, rocket launchers and even experimental rail guns that shoot blue, helical rays of mass destruction. Not to forget, a tongue-in-cheek car game wouldn't be complete without a turbo booster. Between missions you get to upgrade your cars (new ones unlocked every few missions) and weapons.

There are no surprises in the zombie varieties: in addition to the regular, shambling corpses, there are legions of zombie dogs, wailing slingers of industrial junk, bloated monsters of the exploding variety and of course the hulk. Naturally, it is more difficult to ram the bigger ones and especially in large groups.

Story mode has two kinds of basic missions: 1) taxi missions: go and save people from buildings around the town (usually with generous time limits), and 2) slaughter missions: go somewhere and kill everything. Here, everything includes the zombie spawners (introduced by the HD version): enormous Jabba the Hut creatures that blurt out more of the monsters (it figures that these are not your average zombies after all). In addition, there are the awesome cleaning and destroying special missions where you get to drive e.g. tanks, with infinite ammo of course. HD version also has a couple of bosses that add nicely into the game's limited lore.

Story wasn't the strong part of the original Zombie Driver and it has only been patched partly by the HD upgrade. It ends abrubtly but rather appropriately although leaving your contribution vague: it is unfortunately never explained why the army (or whatever they are) needed a random taxi driver to sort their mess.

Two other game modes are more like what the game was designed for: there's the copy of Death Rally called Blood Race (though you can't destroy your opponents permanently) with several different tournaments and challenge missions. Unfortunately, career mode is missing. You'll get money for winning races and can then buy limited upgrades to your car. On the other hand, Slaughter mode is an endless killing spree of perpetually spawning zombies for higher points to show off in the leaderboards. Here only death ends the level.

Game is fun and pretty awesome. However, it is easy to get stuck in corners and sometimes it is not clear what items can be driven through resulting in further stuckiness. Mob spawning can be ruthless and illogical, especially in Slaughter mode: zombies tend not to walk as fast (or at all?) when you are not seeing them in front of you in the camera and the game considers it fair to spawn a group of exploding zombies right behind you when you are reversing.

Despite the few complaints, I can give it thumbs up. Graphics are nice, sounds are not irritating and gameplay is very nice (I used keyboard and mouse). Also, the improvements from the original Zombie Driver are very welcome: e.g. they made booster a separate item from weapons, added a map and made the story mode more interesting with the zombie spawners, bosses and special vehicles. If you have doubts but are interested, you can also grab it on sale for 2 euros or less.
