What could be more enjoyable than jumping in a car equipped with machine guns and bull bars and running through crowds of Zombies? The Zombie PC Game, Zombie Driver lets you find out. Developed by EXOR Studios, and availble for purchase from Steam, it is a top down Zombie game that puts you behind the wheel of a car in a Zombie infested Post Apocalyptic world. The premise is simple, drive your car around collect money, weapons and survivors. You can then use the money to upgrade your ride with extra Armour, guns, increase survivor capacity, and modify your cars driving performance. Faced with hundreds of Zombies at a time You’ll need a beefed up Apocalypse proof vehicle since every Zombie you hit slows your vehicle down. With every hit there are splatters blood all over the environment, Bits of zombie litter the road and streaks of blood criss cross the roads.
Graphics 6.75/10 The graphics work for a game like this. My biggest complaint is the inability to Zoom the camera in and out using the mouse wheel. Some people may find the camera is too close to the vehicle (I sure did). The closeness of the camera and the high speed action could cause some nausea and eye strain.
Sound 4/10 Sound is basic bare minimum… Crunching bones, machine gun sounds, splattering bodies etc etc.
Controls 8/10 Using the keyboard the controls are tight and easy to use. Within 15minutes I was weaving in between abandoned cars and power sliding into mega hordes of zombies at top speed.
Value 7/10 The game is quick and fun. it delivers on the promise of letting you ram the zombies in your beefed up zombie killing car. Problem is it gets a bit boring after awhile. Not to worry the game play lasts a 3 hours top. Another huge Plus is the price, Regularly priced at 10 bucks. For the same price of a 8 pack of Lucky Lager you can get this game… Which will equate to more fun? If you get the game this week it’s only 5 bucks on steam which is a insane bargain… GET IT! There has also been a update which includes A Slaughter mode. This involves destroying as many zombies as possible before they trash your car and a new environmental effects including night.
New Slaughter game mode:
- Fight endless waves of zombies to achieve the highest score possible
- 5 unlockable arenas with different environmental effects
