This is one of the 2 Wii U games I'm interested in so far. The other is Mario. It looks awesome, but there have been many games on many systems that look awesome in previews only to be underwhelming when they finally come out. I keep thinking that if you strip away the unique controls that the Wii U gamepad provides, all you might be left with is an average zombie shooter. I hope I'm wrong. --- Dear pessimist and optimist, while you were arguing about whether the glass was half empty or half full, I drank the water. Signed: The Opportunist.
Lets hope it's better than Ubi's last foray into "new IP launching with system" FPS aka Red Steel. I liked it but it was average at best. RS2 however, was a beast though replaybility was non existent. --- Games: Sleeping Dogs, WO3, GT5, Transformers: FoC 3DS: 1375-7216-3398 <ENDBOSS> PS3/Vita: ENDBOSS78
I got it pre-ordered,i just hope it's not another red steel...
I've decided it won't be another Red Steel. Here's why...
Red Steel was a disappointment because of its controls. The brand new control system introduced by the Wii was not implemented well at all. With ZombiU, it uses a traditional 2 stick control system and uses the new features the tablet brings to the table as supplements. --- Dear pessimist and optimist, while you were arguing about whether the glass was half empty or half full, I drank the water.

The gameplay is fine IMO with the scarce ammo and one bite kills, it really is a survival horror game. The only thing I'm worried about is the length of the game and how many different areas there are --- Official ex-COD fan, I'm tired of Treyarch's money grubbing and taking advantage of its fans through copy-pasting their COD games and overpriced map pack ****
Yeah I got my copy pre-ordered already so I'm really hoping it turns out great too. The only things I'm a little worried about are the campaigns length and its replayability. If it has a short campaign that would be disappointing so hopefully its a decent length at least.
In terms of the replayability I know it has multiple endings and a one life only survival mode etc. That stuff should be cool I hope but I guess the concern for me personally is that subsequent playthroughs of survival horror games tend to lose that horror aspect for me after the initial playthrough. You know, its like watching a scary movie multiple times. You know where the scary stuff is so its just not quite the same and if you take away the scare factor that's half the fun gone in my opinion.
I guess that's one of the reasons I was disappointed that there is no separate online multiplayer mode. It would have gave me a little more to come back to after the campaign loses its excitement for me.
