For some odd reason, society has a fascination with the apocalypse. That mysterious event that will bring about the end of the world as we know it is a hot button topic for many people, if only because we know nothing about it, or even if it’ll actually happen. Mostly the focus is on the “how” and the “why.” Well, if movies and video games are to be believed, the “how” will involve the dead rising from their graves to consume the flesh of those still standing. They don’t care so much about the “why.”
So yes, zombies appear a lot in the general media today, and video games are certainly no exception to the rule. They often appear in various shooter titles, with you against a massive horde of the undead, and bullets aplenty flying through the air. That’s also the basic concept behind All Zombies Must Die!, an Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Steam game which goes above and beyond in terms of depicting the sheer enormousness of fighting against almost every human being on the planet, each of them now an undead monster.
A trailer was released showcasing the characters you’ll be playing as, as well as the various features of the game in general. Have a look at All Zombies Must Die! for yourselves.
There doesn’t appear to be much difference between the four characters of Jack, Rachel, Brian, and Luxo besides appearance, though they may have exclusive weapons from the looks of things. The ability to customize your characters’ stats to your liking, as well as being able to craft new weapons, may cancel out any sort of uniqueness between the characters.
Overall, this looks like a very fun title, though the sheer number of threats on the screen at any given time looks to be absolutely ludicrous. One can only imagine the insanity that would occur on the higher levels of difficulty. Thankfully, there is local multiplayer in addition to online, so you should have a good time with this if you invite your friends over for a party.
