I wanted to like this game, has a lot of potential with the idea but the controls are too arcady for my liking and there is not much else other than driving around in circles. They had a great concept but with a few to many missteps it just didn't do the job. It is also beginning to show it's age. There are much better car games out there for around the same price.

This game is amazing if your distracted doing something else. Just put on some custom tunes and drive around running over zombies. great pick up and play time waster. I wouldnt pay $10 but for $3 it would be good.

I really wanted to like this game but there's more issues to it that makes it not worthwhile. Granted it has a few gems to it. I mean come on, who doesn't like fast cars and killing zombies at the same time.
The game mechanics are generic but the physics are believeable enough. The hud is extremely confusing unless you pay close attention and die so many times in demolition. Demolion mode has some quirks to work out with the A.I. but otherwise generally decent.
Now this is personal gripe so take it with a grain of salt, I like customizing my cars....alot. From moving the decals to upgrading pistons in the engine. This game just gives you paint job with no choice in decals whatsoever. However, you can upgrade yur car's weapons which is decent....It's not.
And getting new cars is a challenge in itself considering you have to litteraly beat the everlasting hell out of the other car you want. And even then, there may be the case your car is slow enough to be overtaken by a snail that the other car can leave you in in it's dust blood and zombie infested wake.

All in all the game itself had potential, and it could have used some major developing before being turned loose, but the mediocre customization, confusing as hell story, and difficulty of getting something better than that clunker you get at the start almost make this game dead in the water.

4/10 "The Diamond in the Rough zombie driver."

The rampant translation errors and lack of any sort of tutorial led me to expect the worst, but this actually plays pretty well for the first hour or two. The handling is pretty smooth and there's a clever mechanic whereby hitting zombies gives you nitro, meaning that swerving into as many zombies as possible is often the fastest way to get around.

Unfortunately, once I unlocked a faster car and got to some of the larger races, I realized there's some incredibly blatant rubber-banding going on and it absolutely killed the game for me. It's frustrating as hell to get out in the lead in your zippy little sports car and gun the nitro only to have a hummer zip past you. This alone pretty much ended my interest in the game.

There are some other problems. There are a lot of side missions to do for cash to buy upgrades, but they're all variations on either hunting artifacts or smashing zombies and it gets old really quickly. There's very little feedback or information (not even a spedometer) and things are really rough around the edges. For example, the UI may or may not display your objective progress depending on how it's feeling at that moment.

Honestly, without the rubber banding this would have been a fun if slightly clunky semi-open world zombie-murderin' racer. As it is, it's just not worth investing the time in completing dull side missions and upgrading your car just to have the game decide that you should be in third place now.
