Zombie Apocalypse – Demo Impressions (PS3)

Zombie Apocalypse Main

It might just’ve been because I had seen Zombieland less than 48 hours before playing this demo but Zombie Apocalypse was great fun.

Essentially a reskinned old style shooter you (and up to four friends) take control of one of the few survivors left following the aforementioned apocalypse.

The idea of the game is to survive day to day (each level being a day) for as long as possible.

Zombie Apocalypse 1

You use the left stick to move and the right stick to fire your weapon. In times of emergency you also have a chainsaw which can activated with R1 (quick swipe) or L1 (execution move).

You will be chaining kills like there is no tomorrow and it’s worryingly satisfying to see your ‘kill count’ rack up (on one playthrough mine was almost 600! 😎 )

There are a few different weapons in the demo: shotgun, flamethrower and a sort of gatling gun. I’m guessing there are more in the full game but these all felt different enough to give you some choice.

Zombie Apocalypse 2

I can’t decide whether this is worth investing in as a full game, especially with Dead Nation (the Zombie shooter for PS3) coming up early next year.

Regardless I’d certainly recommend downloading this and at least giving it a try.

  1. I purchased the game a few weeks back and I must say its pretty fun. Its a game I often turn to if I just want to kill small sections of time and don’t want to get wrapped up in a “full” game.

  2. It’s probably much better with friends but honestly I found it to be pretty bland for the price. Top down shooters have never been my thing though.

    There’s an Xbox 360 Community Games release out now for less than $1 which gives you essentially the same thing, which admittedly worse graphics.

  3. If it came down in price, maybe but it’s gotta be ‘Dead Nation’ for me.
