Age of Zombies PS Mini Review: Super Smash TV Meets Zombies Ate my Neighbors
With a variety of weapons and hordes of zombies in a plethora of different scenes in time, Age of Zombies is able to keep your focus throughout. At a bargain bin price and considering the famine in the software department for the console, this game is one that can eat up a few hours of your time with little cost.
The controls are simple as the D-pad controls your characters and the square, triangle, circle and X button control the direction of fire. Although simple, pressing two buttons at the same time will angle your fire making it easier to take out multiple enemies. There are also sub-weapons such as mines and grenades, used to take out tougher foes or a group of them.
While it isn’t as polished as something the likes of “Super Smash TV,” it’s in the same shoot-em-up vein and will instantly strike a chord with fans of the genre. For mindless fun with few hiccups, “Age of Zombies” gets it done.
The story, albeit wacky, has its moments. The foul-mouthed “hero” isn’t exactly captivating, but you’ll have a constant smirk on your face. Again, much like games in the genre, the game’s story is secondary to the fun. The shooting action is intense and fast and that’s what matters most.
There are games on the Vita/PSP with better graphics and that will kill more of your time, but if you’re a zombie fanatic with a hunkering for an old-school shooter, “Age of Zombies” will take a nice chunk out of you.
