Games From The Sales: Zombie Shooter 2

During this years sales I've managed to pick up a few fairly recent titles for a very modest sum. One of these is Zombie Shooter 2, a third person zombie shoot-em-up made by the creators of Alien Shooter and it's sequels.

It's really an RPG as you increase your speed, health, fighting abilitiy, etc... and also buy new, more powerfull weapons in order to become a better zombie killer.

It's fantastic for simplistic zombie killing violence, you don't have to think too much to play it which is always good for me! It's very much run and shoot all the way, although there are a couple of things that could have made it better. Weapon switching is restricted between three weapon sizes; pistol size, rifle/shotgun size and heavy weapons. It would have been better if I could have quick-switched between shotgun and assualt rifle more readily.

I also recognised a lot of the music in Zombie Shooter 2 as it was also in Alien Shooter 2. It's good music mind you but that's not where the copying ends. The playable characters are the same, but between playing this version and the demo I downloaded a few weeks ago I'm glad to see that they at least updated the character Bio's to something different!

I've not yet completed it so I can't say for sure if there's any huge new plot elements that are worth getting this for. On the other hand if you've not already bought/player Alien Shooter 2 and prefer shooting zombies rather than aliens then this might be worth a try!

Both Zombie Shooter 2 and Alien Shooter 2 are available from GamersGate.
