In Defense: ZombiU

ZombiU was released alongside Nintendo's Wii U console in November, with a mature and hardcore game style and what appeared to be truly horrifying elements that seem to be so absent in zombie-focused games as of late. Ubisoft's title received a pretty mixed reception from review sites and other publications, which I can somewhat understand as it depends largely upon the expectations of the player. These reviews ranged from about a 3.5 all the way up to a 9 out of ten, which really illustrates the divergence of review scores. I've touched on this game briefly in one of my more recent entries, but having just begun ZombiU's Survival mode and becoming absolutely hooked all over again, I decided that it's a game that very much deserves a write up all to itself, so here are my two cents: ZombiU is fucking sweet.
