Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the studio behind critically acclaimed titles like From Dust, Beyond Good & Evil and, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, ZombiU puts players in the middle of London circa 2012, where an outbreak has infected the population, destroying their humanity and turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors. This fear-fueled first-person shooter invites takes all the horror, chaos and tension found in the best of the horror genre and adds original interactive elements, including a unique death mechanic that puts players in the body of a different survivor each time they die, allowing them to track and take down their old, infected characters, recover their equipment and see if they can stay alive just a little bit longer this time.

An interesting game on the wii U, that's for sure, but I guess I was expecting a little something more from it. There are a lot of cool ideas put in this game, such as the "permadeath" concept, where you have to kill your previous self as a zombie if you die, as well as the many various uses of the Wii U gamepad in order to increase tension. However, those ideas really aren't put to the very best use, since the gamepad stuff just has you constantly scanning every room to make sure you see items and the permadeath stuff doesn't really matter since the story progresses anyways. I think it would have been cooler if they had made a more difficult, shorter roguelike kinda game where the gamepad stuff is more prevalent to keep you constantly on edge from the zombies instead of the game that they made here. The game is paced kinda poorly and there's a huge big dumb mcguffin hunt for no reason at the end which sucks. Game was disappointing because I could see what it was trying to be, it just wasn't doing the best job being that.

Honestly got this game because I thought it would be like Black Ops Zombies when I was younger. Revisited it, played it for 30 minutes, found that it was even worse than I remembered (I remembered it being bad), and that's all I have to say about it.

Premier jeu sur Wii u, j'en garde une bonne expérience. Un bon jeu de zombie pour moi.

Ich hätte so gerne einen Teil 2 gesehen, weil ich das grundsätzliche Konzept, sowie die Atmosphäre sehr mag.
