Zombie Shooter 2
I thought that the first Zombie Shooter was a fun time, but with Zombie Shooter 2 they are trying to keep the mindless fun of the first game. All the while adding in some RPG like mechanics a more of a story.
Smoothing Out The Edges
I actually liked the art style of the first Zombie Shooter game. It had a gritty, PlayStation 1 kind of style to it. Zombie Shooter 2 is keeping that same isometric overhead style, but there is certainly a lot more polish this time around. The characters, zombies, levels and everything else has a much smoother and cleaner look to it this time.
While Zombie Shooter 2 still has an old school style, I do feel that they made a huge improvement over the first game in terms of the visuals.
Mow Them All Down!
The first Zombie Shooter game was just all about killing as many zombies as you could. Sure, there was a story, but it was barebones at best. They took a very interesting direction with Zombie Shooter 2. This game still offers hordes of zombies and creatures for you to kill, but they added a lot more story to this game. You talk to NPC’s, you make trades, buy stuff and you can even create your own character.
All of this stuff and of course the upgrade system, gives Zombie Shooter 2 more of an RPG feel. They do not go overboard with this and I felt that it did not get in the way of me wanting to mow down all of the zombies, but it certainly gives the game more depth than the first one had.
Cars & Drones
While Cars & Drones may sound like the name of a pretentious indie album. These are two of the big additions to Zombie Shooter 2. There are a few different vehicles that you can drive and they are great. You can get to where you want to go quicker and of course you can also take out zombies with them as well.
Drones and radars are quite interesting in that they can give you an edge when taking down a group of zombies. I do not think these are as big additions as the vehicles are, but it certainly gives you another way of going about your mayhem.
Survive And Gun Stand Are Back
The campaign has had a ton of work put into it. The story along with the RPG mechanics they spread over the game are clearly where most of the attention went. Still though, they did bring back the two other game modes from the first Zombie Shooter, Survive and Gun Stand.
There is nothing really major different here and both modes are as much fun as they were before. Survive sees you walking around an area taking out horde after horde of zombies until you cannot take it anymore. Gun Stand is the same idea, but you control a turret that is fixed to the ground. These are a nice distraction and Survive is perfect if you are looking for something to waste 10 minutes or so with.
While I may have focused on the RPG mechanics and the fleshed-out story. I would say that Zombie Shooter 2 is a better game all around than the first one. It moves a bit better, certainly looks better and the way you can upgrade your character and weapons feels a little more in-depth. As much as I liked the first game, I do feel that it is worth skipping over and jumping straight into Zombie Shooter 2.
