Summary

Decent Arcade Game With Lots of Action

The Good

Zombie Revenge is a fun arcade game, it's quick, full of action, and has a very short learning curve. This makes it easy for you to invite a friend over, and kill a few zombies for a while.

There are a lot of secrets, 3 characters, tons of weapons, a two player battle mode, bosses, and a few different single player modes.

The Bad

The main problem with this game is the plot line is terrible. Either lost through translation, or originally just that bad, it just plain sucks. It ruins the incentive to play on after you've died through all of your continues.

Very little replayability, the developers added a lot of nice stuff for you to be entertained with, but it doesn't keep you entertained for long. The novelties expire quickly.

The Bottom Line

Zombie Revenge is a decent arcade game with a lot of action, but it doesn't stand up to more popular "zombie" games, such as Resident Evil/Biohazard in plot or fun.

This does not make the game bad though, if all you want is a quick arcade game and have a friend or two over it'd be perfect for you. If you want mystery, puzzles, and a half-way interesting plot, I'd stick with Resident Evil.
