Platform: Wii U
Developer: Ubisoft Montpellier
ZombiU is a survival horror game.
It's not a shooter with zombie trappings, nor a rollercoaster thrill ride. Instead, Ubisoft's hardcore Wii U launch title is the profound terror that comes from being totally alone in the face of implacable foes you're ill-equipped to deal with. It's the oppressive dread of stalking empty corridors, knowing that death could lurk around every corner, and the heart-stopping panic of countless jump scares. It's the paranoia of having to glance down from the screen to check your scant inventory just long enough for nightmarish things to rip your throat out. The fear of permanent death that keeps you rooted to the spot, unwilling to explore further because you're just too damn scared to move. The horror. It's the horror.
Put simply, ZombiU provides the 'true' survival horror experience we've all been craving, and one of the most ruthlessly effective examples of the genre we've seen in years.
