To be fair, I was never a big fan of Zombi U when I first saw it at Gamescom a few years ago. And given that it was included as part of a hardware bundle that signified a more mature direction for Nintendo, I remember being put off by the graphics as I couldn’t understand as to how something that looked like a first generation XBox 360 game could possibly be used as a system selling showcase. So whilst the media and Nintendo’s fans were all over Ubisoft’s game (on the basis that it was a platform exclusive), I remember being a lot more cynical at the time, and wondering as to how Nintendo could possibly have duped so many people into buying into its £300 white elephant. Luckily for more discerning consumers however, common sense did prevail, and the Wii U only went on to sell a paltry 13-odd million units before Nintendo ceased production. And thank God for that.
Anyway, if you’ve ever been curious about Zombi U, but didn’t quite get round to owning it, then you’ll be pleased to know that you can get it for just £7.99 on both PS4 and XBox One. And regardless of what some people may say about the game’s underlying quality, it’s worth a punt at that price.
