So far I've only played through a few hours of the story mode so this review relates to that. I'm looking forward to trying race mode later.

I always have a nostalgic hankering for a decent top down driving game but am usually disappointed. Zombie Driver HD however is fantastic fun.. Rich environments much of which you can destroy, engaging story, awesome voice acting (in the best B movie tradition), convincing hoards that can swamp you if you're careless, great explosive visual effects, quality audio and HUGE zombie bodycounts.

While you are required to develop a certain amount of driving skill it should'nt be too frustrating for novices of the top down style. missions can be completed at a slower pace, sticking to the streets but don't worry about leaving the road, the maps are sensibly designed so you don't constantly get stuck on scenery or in dead ends. As you become skilled with the handbrake you'll be pulling donuts and rail gunning through hundreds of bloody undead.

The different vehicles work well and purchaseable upgrades mean you're always tempted to stray from the mission to grab extra cash found around the city.

The atmosphere created in the game is great, weather changes, night time lighting, the army presence, shadows of jet fighters roaring overhead, vehicle getting covered in blood and a constant tension created by time critical mission elements all add the feel of this great little game.

One thing I would like added is the ability to move the camera a little to scan the environment. Playing with an xbox controller this seems untuitively what the second stick should be used for, although it's arguable that you shouldn't be able to see much further than the street you're driving in.

So in my opinion the developers have done a great job of creating a top down driving game set in a zombie apocalypse, if that sounds like something you need, you should probably grab it in a sale like I did, or at full price if you're feeling flush.

Nice history campain mode, you play as a mercenary hired for the military to aid in the zombie elemination, it is very simple and funny, looks like the old jungle strike series, however the race campain mode is terrible, it does not work proprely, your car reacts different every time it touches the wall, so its more about luck than player ability.

- Fun n simple
- Lots of cars
- Lots of upgrades

- Very repetitive
- Race mode is terrible

Portugues (Brasil)
O modo historia é muito bom, nele você joga um jogo de carro de ação, bem simples e divertido, no estilo jungle strike, agora no modo corrida, o jogo simplesmente é podre, não depende da habilidade do jogador e sim da sorte, pois cada hora seu carro se comporta de maneira diferente.

- Divertido e simples
- Vários carros e armas.
- Upgrades dos carros e armas

- Bem repetitivo
- Modo corrida é péssimo.

Nota 6/10

Twelve hours of work and I still can't sleep. Damn. Days go on and on. They don't end.
― Travis Bickle, Taxi Driver (1976)

And still too many zombies to run them over ;)

After 16h (one-time story, all-gold Slaughter mode, all Blood Race tournaments):
+ immersive (don't know why: :P)
+ nice graphics and effects
+ mixed vehicles
+ Slaughter mode

- average-bad cameras in relation to the game's speed
- sometimes really freaking annoying
- cut scenes that can't be missed and which also consume missions' time
- even if the mission doesn't have a concrete time limit... suprise, countdown continues
- main campaign is little too long, because missions are repeated
- final boss with regeneration
- Blood Race (Race is good, but Eliminator's too chaotic and Endurance... strange mix of time driving and killing zombies)
- a few minor bugs

Subjective rate: B- (this game doesn't deserve either the thumb up or thumb down. That's the truth. It's in the middle, but really only for z-fans. Or Carmageddon/GTA1&2 veterans.)
