ZombiU- My review Great game! Scary, but thrilling!
Hi, Im 12 years old and I got ZombiU during christmas 2012. At first I hadn't realized how good the game really was and how dfferent it was from other zombie games because honestly, I hadn't played other zombie games. My parents said they got me this game becuase they thought it had the least amount of violence compared to other games I wanted. Nope not even close, but first let me tell you how good this game is.
Besides the bad title, this game fits really well to the WiiU game pad. The game pad is your eyes an ears in the game helping you with alot alot of stuff. Second this game is scary, I mean its scary scary, but it's not the blood and the violence that makes it scary. Its the action, and just the thought that theres a zombi near. First of all everythings dark, and just creepy. When your around a human, ist still creepy. The thing is, the entire game gives you a feeling on abandonment and no one there to comfort you. Thats a big positive when comared to other zombie games. The walking dead for instance.... I wasnt' scared in the least... ZombiU comes.... I can't stand being left alone to play it. Next is the entire strategy and preparation required... There is almost no ammo in the entire game... To some, not positive, to me and others, very positive. I'm tired of games like black ops and others where you buy weapons for money and tons of ammo. Next every room you come into you need to be quiet and prepared. If you start walking into rooms and not checking your scanner your dead. This game requires time and even alot of patience. The last thing is the ending and 'survival mode'. There are 3 endings that I really like.... 1 bad ending, 1 good ending, and 1 okay ending. The bad ending is you die. The good ending is you escape and retrieve the panacea. A vaccine. The okay ending is you don't retrieve the vaccine but you escape. The survival mode is entirely something new and greatly thought of for ZombiU. Without this mode, ZombiU would not have been as popular. This mode makes it extra fun, extra challenging, and just awesome. It makes it much harder to complete the story. This mode has it if your bitten your dead. Game over entirely, you have to start from the complete beginning. The last thing I have to say is in regular mode i fyour bitten you come back a another surviver,but it counts, since you lose all your supplies. THats another plus...
Moving on to Age and why I recommend 13 and up....
ZombiU is bloody and creepy. It consists of F*** and Sh** and etc. Of course it should be rated M for Mature. But the thing is theres no sexuality at all... None.. So to me heres the deal. If your a parent and you think you have a responsibl child who can handle blood and violence, and language then I think this game will be alright for your child. It fun, its scary, and as long as he can handle it its okay. Theres no sexual stuff that to younger people will causee problems. To parents who have children who are afraid of the dark I don't recommend you let them play. It's just too scary. Now to language, this game will be alright for your child as long as he doesn't repeat what hes hearing. Its not actually that much language. But when your prepper is trying to protect you he tends to yell out words. But you me this is a good game and as long as your son/daughter can handle some blood... and scariness.... its a great game to play!
