Dredd vs. Zombies: Game Review
Following the success of Guns 4 Hire, the developers have now released yet another game again of a very high quality – the ‘Dredd vs. Zombies’. After testing it, we have to admit: Wow! This game is great! Presentation is superb, the gameplay is great … In one word – it’s super fun!
It’s also worth mentioning that it is a game which was a long time overdue because Windows Phone did not have such a game so far. As it seems however, Rebellion is one of those few game developers who really care about Windows Phone!
Let’s now take a look at the game itself:
Overall Score: 5/5
The game has extremely beautiful graphics and runs totally smooth, accompanied by a very nice sound. The gameplay is wonderful and it lasts for hours! So, now we have at least two of those promised “super games” available for Windows Phone.
As mentioned, the graphics are amazing! Bright colors, shard, detailed textures and nice animations. The sound is also extremely realistic, high quality, and at times a bit terrifying (those howls by the zombies… Brrr!!).
One of the best things is that the game starts within a second (tested on Lumia 920), without even a loading screen! This game is a perfect example for really good programming!
The game has a pretty basic 3rd person shooter gameplay – one pad for running, one button for shooting – which makes it not too complicated. Yet, you can’t say it’s too simple either. Normally the character does target the zombies automatically, but if you want to shoot a specific enemy or a gas can you simply need to tab it.
Before every level you have a choice of a weapon out of four available; two are available from the beginning on, the other two need to be unlocked. You can also get three “special features” (like extra ammo). The weapons can be upgraded if you have enough credits, so you can give the shotgun have a faster reloading speed or a bigger clip size.
Lasting Value: 5/5
The game provides hours and hours of fun. There are three “worlds” with ten levels each. As the levels get harder (and really, really tough after some time) you probably will need more tries for one level which makes the lasting value a bit longer as well.
And finally – the game is free!
