Zombie HQ



    Zombie HQ's review

    Published: 2013-10-11, by Peter Warrior.

    A survival city crawler

    • Awesome gameplay
    • Outstanding cutscenes
    • Overall, flawless
    • It needs far more customization options and characters
    • It can be even more spectacular

    "Know what? People's eating each other out there"

    Here's a game every lover of the zombie genre will enjoy. In an infested city you play the role of a brave lone wolf whose only contact with other survivors is made via a ham radio set. This survivors send you missions to fulfill in your area, in hope you can eventually reach where they are bunkered and join them.

    These missions are quite dungeon-crawler style, in which you freely roam a given map, clear the area and go back to your headquarter. Completed missions gives you points to buy or upgrade your gun or bombs, your close quarters weapon, decorate your new "home" or improve your stats. You can also customize your character, but only in a very limited way. The whole game is in 3D, and how camera plays with perspective and the very welcome cutscenes are a luxury that many other games can't brag of. Missions will also unfold a story about will, constance and determination (well, as any zombie flick would do)

    Regarding gameplay, it's closer to survival-horror more than button-smashing. Ammo and reloading times are the key to success, as it's to pay attention to your environment and take advantage of exploding barrels and dead ends. Don't forget to rummage through dustbins for extra credits.

    Zombie HQ can be played for free, though there'll be a time when you feel you need to pull out your wallet in order to keep the game balanced. Meanwhile, recommended. Ab-so-lute-ly rec-om-mend-ed.

    "Zombie HQ is a highly-accomplished and satisfyingly brutal arcade slasher that should leave even the most over-saturated fans of the undead genre feeling very happy indeed.” - Modojo
