I'm curious. How is Zombie Apocalypse, compared to the PSN game, Dead Nation?


Like I mentioned above, I find ZA1 to be abysmal. ZA2 is like Dead Nation in that you walk around dark streets and blast zombies. I've only played about the first 3 levels of each game, but it feels like Dead Nation has quite a bit more when it comes to upgrading and seems to be the more polished game. Dead Nation only allows for 2 player co-op I believe, where ZA2 allows up to 4 players. Dead Nation also seemed significantly more difficult as well. The tone of the two games are quite different as well (Dead Nation is pretty dark, where as ZA2 is pretty corny).

I preferred my time with Dead Nation quite a bit more, even though I did die more.

Haha yeah because unlocking the shortcuts is a cinch. :wall:
.


What was so hard about that? Only carrying the key can took some tries, but it's perfectly doable. Nothing like the difficulty of some later levels on N+. I was able to 100% N as well, but i put away the game for a year before i decided to get back to it. For some reason frustrates the hell out of me. :lol:

Might be in for N+. Didn't care for Limbo when I tried the demo previously, but may try that again.

As for Zombie Driver HD, it's a fun distraction. I like to think of it as Carmageddon in a GTA setting if that makes any sense. Plus the achievements aren't too hard either.

I can barely make it to the Ice world without carrying the fucking key.

It looks like last week's DOTW games are back to full price. Only checked Alan Wake's American Nightmare and Orcs Must Die, and they're back up to 1200 each. I assume the others are back up too.

As far as the other games that were "on sale" last week, it looks like most, if not all of those were permanent price drops.

There's a page for February price drops on the dashboard now. Listed are Alien Breed 1-3, Haunted House, Yar's Revenge (all 400 each); Battlezone, Tempest, Centipede & Millipede (all 320 each), Missle Command (240), Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem (800 each); and Worms 2: Armageddon (the price drops page says it's 600 but it should be 400).

Just checked the Puzzle Quest DLC and Puzzle Quest Galactrix pages and they're still at 400 and 1200 points each.

I'm curious. How is Zombie Apocalypse, compared to the PSN game, Dead Nation?


I found the original Zombie Apocalypse demo to be really bad. It doesn't even have a lot of features of a "game", more of a twin stick hoard mode where you just fight waves of zombies.


That is a "game". Maybe not your preferred cup of tea, but the fans of Smash TV and the like could get a kick out of it. I bought it for 400 points and don't regret it at all. It makes a great "quickie game". Sitting with a bunch of friends and no one wants to commit to starting a new campaign or learning new controls? Toss this on, easy to pick up and go.

It's a twin stick game, with extra buttons for either holding a melee chainsaw (more fun than function), or a bail-out grenade. Nothing revolutionary....main story/game is just surviving 55 days (levels) and you can pick up where you left off. 1-4 local or online, multiple mode types/modifiers to unlock, build up a big score modifier for extra lives. Enemies get progressively harder with new types (exploding bastards are the worst), and a small gun selection that appear on the map or drop from the sky.

It's not going to blow you away, but if you were lamenting the loss of Smash TV from Arcade (I know, the Midway collection is coming...or out?), then this makes a fine stand-in.

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

Couldn't Agree More

All Zombies must Die , I bought just because I had some points and the demo seemed good. Me and my Buddy went through the first 3 levels and after that decided to never play it again. it was just repetitive garbage (in my opinion)

Zombie Apocalypse - is worth $5 in my Opinion it's not deep or anything, it's one of those easy to pick and play games, the later levels are grinders but it's not to deep and is fun to play with some buds.

Zombie Apocalypse 2 NDA - I cannot recommend, the demo seemed okay...But this is one of the cases where after i purchased it about 8 months ago I felt cheated. Maybe if it was a dollar indy game maybe I would of let it go. When a sequel isn't no where as good as the original i say hey! what happend? On paper ZA2 sounds good but after you start playing it you realize what a poor attempt it is. Around level 3 or 4 I remember the difficulity spikes and good luck finding anybody to play it with you and I highly recommend during the volume down because the voice acting is down right horrible. I do like the idea of 4 different characters who weld different weapons and have different skills and every level has objectives to complete, that's cool! if only the game was fun. Id say AVOID at all cost


Looks Like I will be picking up Zombie Driver and Limbo : )

You have to play the scratch game and lose, then it will show you the "loser deals".

I agree on N+ with everyone else. It is a fun game but it gets really annoying from like level 40-50. One of the few games that made me want to break my controller in frustration. I don't think I ever finished it either. I will probably pick up Zombie Driver, NDA DLC, and Zombie Wranglers.

Oh another thing, I've never regretted any XBLA purchase more then I have ZA2: NDA, and I've bought some other very poorly recieved games (ala Daggerdale, Nexuiz, etc)

Seriously it's months later and I'm still a little annoyed I actually bought NDA. :sigh: Oh well.

I have not played part two but the first was at least enjoyable, not the best or the worst. I do not remember when I bought part two but apparently I did and it must of been about two years ago so Im getting the DLC for it. Im gonna pass on All Zombies Must Die just because it looks like another Zombie Apocalypse game and I don't need anymore of the same thing.

Just checked the Puzzle Quest DLC and Puzzle Quest Galactrix pages and they're still at 400 and 1200 points each.


It looks like everything that wasn't part of DotW last week is more than likely a price drop. I'll work on migrating it down into the proper section later in the OP, if someone doesn't beat me. Should we just delete the avatar price drops?

I regretted buying it quite a bit when I got it for free on PS+ a few months later, but I still kinda liked it playing with a few friends. My biggest ever XBLA regret is buying Voodoo Dice for 400 MSP. SMH.

Zombie Wranglers is a bad game. I think I won a copy when it came out and towards the end of last year I revisited it. It's a fairly easy 200 GS and features online co-op, but that final boss is really cheap and made me want to delete the game upon completion. I'd say save your money. The trial for All Zombies Must Die wasn't that fun to me either.


I remember being very psyched when ZW simply had a teaser trailer up before release since it *looks* like it should be in the vain of ZAMN... and then I played the demo. :puke:

correct. this is a deal only available through the scratch and match section in the sales & specials app on your xbox console. technically, it is not a deal of the week sale, which is why you do not see it on xbox.com

edit: can anyone tell me if limbo has been cheaper in the past? i used to own the triple pack and sold it just a few days ago. i looked on xbldb.com but i have a hard time interpreting the info. wasn't it super cheap during a holiday sale?

and what is this i read about a skyrim abit and switch? dragonborn is the only dlc i need to buy and i was planning on doing it next week
