Game On! | Zombie Apocalypse
With Halloween just around the corner, here are some zombie infested games you can pop into your console to get you in the mood for some horror. Just remember to keep your weapons loaded and aim for the head!
1. Resident Evil 5
The grandaddy of survival horror videogames, the fifth edition of the Resident Evil series sees the return of Chris Redfield in a zombie infested Africa. Accompanied by new eye candy Sheva Alomar, the two go around capping the ‘Majini’ (parasite infected zombies) who don’t just try to bite you but attack you with spears, guns and an assortment of other weapons. Aiming for the head is not always 100% effective so you’ll need to get trigger happy, but don’t worry as there’s plenty of ammo lying around.
2. Dead Rising 2
The sequel to the 360’s zombie slaying cult classic, this action-adventure-horror-comedy allows you to create unusual weapons to vanquish the living dead. This time you play protagonist Chuck Greene as he fights off hordes of zombies, all the while trying to find a cure for his zombie infected daughter and save a few people while he’s at it. As mentioned before some of the unique weapons you can create in the game include the ‘Hail Mary’ hand grenade duct taped to a football, the ‘Dynameat’ – a stick of dynamite duct stuck to a piece of meat, and our favourite, the ‘Paddlesaw’ – two chainsaws taped to the business ends of a kayak paddle. Tasty.
3. Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare
Fans of westerns and zombies get the best of both worlds with this title, as the hit Red Dead Redemption is given a zombie apocalypse makeover. Once again taking the role of John Marston, players scour the American wild west looking for a cure and cause of the zombie plague while busting the undead at the same time of course. Not only shooting down zombies, you’ll also come across mythical creatures such as Sasquatch, Chupacabra and a unicorn. Open world zombie killing in the wild west, what more could you ask for?
