Introduction:Everybody knows that there is a ton of horror games out for the Xbox 360. We are over run (yes, pun intended) with zombie games. So lets break down the ones that are worth your hard earned cash!
Perhaps the greatest zombie game of all time. This game features you and 3 other "survivors" who can either be A.I. controlled, or controlled by real people. The premise of the game is that there is multiple "scenarios" you and your friends must make it through. During each scenario there are 3-5 chapters separated by safe rooms. The goal of the game is to make it from safe room to safe room until you eventually make it to the finale which involves you surviving in one spot until help arrives. But the regular zombies are not your only concern, there are also "special" infected who are designed to separate your team and preventing you from making it to the safe room. If you play versus mode then 4 people become the special infected and their whole goal is to stop you. You switch at the end of the round and try to stop them.It can be a real blast and played for hours on end.
Dead Island had a bit of mixed reviews when it first came out. Anyone that is an actual fan of zombie games it is a dream come true. You are stuck on a island filled with, guess what? The dead! Dead Island took a bold step by making the game not only free-roam but the weapons are randomized including stats,locations,and names. There is also an amazing loot system in place, and a very nice RPG skill tree element to the game. This game is a must own.
Anyone who owned a PlayStation 1 remembers all of the old Resident Evil games, the terrible voice acting, and the sheer TERROR that you felt while playing. While Resident Evil 6 differs greatly from the old games it certainly brings back the terror that we remember. With its puzzle system, insane boss fights, and high scare factor, it is a hit that any fan of the horror genre will love.
Telltale games released their take on the comic book version of The Walking Dead in 5 separate parts. They recently put it together in one big package so you can play the game from front to back. While this may not be your typical zombie game, it has an undeniable charm and style to it. Due to the fact that the decisions you make in game dictate how to story plays out you will be playing this one again and again just to see the ways the story can branch out.
While State of Decay might seem look an odd choice because it is an arcade game, it is actually an awesome game. You can follow the main story, and I use that phrase very loosely, or you can explore the large map with nothing but your wits and literally what ever weapons are laying around. The game features random item placement in every play through so it is always guaranteed to be a good time.
All of these games are amazing and worth your time. What makes a zombie game is that genuine feeling that something is after you, all of these games will make you jump,squirm, and scream out loud!
