Full Review:

Zombie Tycoon 2 is a comedic zombie RTS. Do not let the name fool you, this game has nothing to do with building an empire or formulating a grand strategy. There are 8 chapters, each about 30 minutes or so long. Each chapter consists of one map with a series of objectives that must be completed in order to advance.

The controls definitely make this feel like it was created with consoles in mind. You only ever have 4 units at most and each special character/monster will have 4 abilities. Good for consoles or just playing with a controller, rather limiting when you have a keyboard. Without all that many units, controls aren’t really an issue here. A minor complaint would be that there doesn’t appear to be a way to create groups, except by repeatedly dragging the mouse over the units you want. The game also offers multiplayer but I have not tried it and thus cannot comment on it.

Without going into spoilers the general plot is that you play as a mad scientist who is trying to wipe out humanity with your army of zombies. Fun and simple. The visual style is very Tim Schaeffer. While not laugh out loud hilarious, I found the game to be thoroughly amusing despite the fact that no character ever says a word. The entire story is given through various sounds, looks, and actions; no dialogue.

Overall, I enjoyed my 5 or so hours with Zombie Tycoon 2. If it sounds interesting and you can get it at a good price I think it would be worth your while.

First thing to get out of the way is this is NOT a Tycoon game, it's a console RTS. You control only 2 units of a fixed size of respawning zombies, 1 monster who levels and gains 4 abilities, and your leader in a mobile base where the zombies respawn.

The art style and music both make the game fun to play, it's just unfortunate the gameplay itself lets it down. With so few units to control and no real abilities to trigger besides the over-powered monster you don't always have, the game is too simple and stops being fun very quickly.

Simple RTS probably worth playing for the campaign. Sadly limited to only a few units at a time due to controller-focused control scheme.

Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge is a fun, but simple and relatively short, RTS (that’s right, RTS not Tycoon. Not a clue why they did that, even after reading up on why they did do that). Your first run through the game’s 8 mission campaign, which is broke up between 2 different factions of 6 different types of zombies for 4 missions each, will only be about 3-4 hours. There is some replay value in obtaining all the secondary objects if you missed them the first time around but replaying the entire campaign again might only increase the life of this title to about 6-7 hours. It is a relatively cheap title though so I’d say dollar-per-hour value is ok with this one. The real feature I say about this title, which initially sold me and kept me going through til the end, is the graphic style and the crazy amount of character put into almost every aspect of the game. Every unit in the game has a ton of personality which is more than I can say for a lot of others games. The two scientists and their zombie minions made me chuckle several times in every cutscene. The way the game looks and sounds reminds me a lot of Evil Genius which is an amazing game so good off to whoever created all the models and behaviours of all the characters.
In conclusion I’d fully recommend this game to anybody looking for a cheap, simple RTS that is exploding with charm and personality and I really hope this company makes a sequel, a real tycoon game or another RTS, with expanded mechanics aimed at a PC market.
