ZombiU – New details
September 18th, 2012

This comes from a VG247 hands-on preview

- Brutally difficult
- The “Dark Souls” of zombie games
- Mixes the continuous dread of “Amnesia” with the unforgiving nature of “Dark Souls”
- The cricket bat is a default, unbreakable weapon
- Shotgun in this playthrough started with “only” 30 bullets
- The flashlight is essential in the sewer, but runs out of power quickly
- Takes a while for the flashlight to recharge, during which time the Wii U’s radar screen is useful
- One zombie takes about six “heavy” hits with the cricket bat to kill
- Gunfire attracts more zombies with each successive shot
- Flares can be used to draw them out more slowly
- Limited inventory slots, resource management is crucial
- Safehouses are respawn zones, contain crafting benches and lockers
- When you respawn, you start with a cricket bat, flashlight, and pistol with six rounds
- Upgraded weapons you make won’t be visible on the map when you lose them to zombification, so chances are it’s gone forever
- Wading through water causes you to lift your backpack overhead, leaving you defenseless
- You can leave graffiti messages on walls for other players online
- The graffiti messages aren’t words, but a choice of symbols to try and communicate with friends
- When your survivor dies, there’s a chance he’ll spawn in a friend’s game as well

Instead of an exciting showcase of the Wii U’s interesting new technology, ZombiU demonstrates just how bad survival horror can get.

ZombiU (WII)

ZombiU (WII) ZombiU is not a repeat of Red Steel. It's a smart, scary, incredibly difficult action game with an unfortunate name, an experience that rewards patience and punishes arrogance.
