ZombiU.

NSMBU just felt old and like a rehash.

Regarding a previous post, my advice is not to take the advice of anyone who compares ZombiU to Metroid Prime. I respect that such a person may not have liked the game, but you would have to go into ZombiU with a completely backwards set of expectations if you end up comparing it to Metroid Prime. ZombiU is nothing like it.


ZombiU is more like Metroid Prime than any FPS shooter out. Have you not played both games?

Same map system, same level design, same backtracking, same upgrades etc... The only differences in gameplay is that one relies more on platforming and puzzles than combat, thats it. There is also more to Metroid Prime.

Thats like saying Arkham Asylum/City is nothing like Metroid.

Well that was tough to find.

No it isn't, as Metroid and the Arkham games are similar, while ZombiU is almost nothing like either of those series. The gameplay, game design, pacing, atmosphere, and controls are completely different. ZombiU shares far more in common with old survival-horror titles, including the backtracking and inaccessible areas you can only get to once you've obtained certain items.

If you dislike ZombiU, that's understandable, but to call it a poor man's Metroid Prime is to completely miss what the developers were trying to accomplish.

Zombie U is awful. One of the worst zombies games in existence. It's the lack of good Wii U games that is clouding some people's eyes -- making Zombie U appear better than it really is. If Zombie U had been released for XBOX360, it'd be completely forgettable. Truth is, even an old game like Riddick Dark Athena is miles better than Zombie U. And when comparing zombie games, Zombie U can't hold a candle to Dead Island (which is getting an even better sequel) or the upcoming XBOX exclusive State of Decay (zombie strategy game from the makers of Warcraft).

It's not awful. Going in expecting it to be a full on shooter you're going to be disappointed. Its a full on survival horror played in 1st person. Its just more realistic than other games, or tries to show a more 'real' environment. Its scary and terrifying in places and you dont have loads of ammo to make you feel safe. For creating atmosphere, ZombiU is fantastic. the problems it has are that it only contains the one mode of play making it kind of pointless to play through more than 1/2 times.

And please don't compare one game with something totally different. Yes they contain zombies but theyre not exactly the same genre of game are they?

2 or more zombies after you in the same area in this game in this game is not an easy situation to get out of!

ZombiU is polarizing and Mario Bros U is the Wii game again with HD.

Get something like Sonic Racing Transformed (Unless you have that on other platforms) or Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate
