1UP!
Zombies est un jeu culte, ou en tous les cas a tout pour l'être. Bourré de références parodiques aux films d'épouvante et doté d'un ton humoristique qui fait merveille, il offre un challenge corsé mais guère lassant grâce à une profusion d'ennemis et de victimes, d'armes et d'objets, de niveaux et de secrets. La vue du dessus est parfaite pour l'exploration et pour le mode 2 joueurs qui, comme l'a confirmé plus tard Secret of Mana, se révèle idéale pour jouer à plusieurs à ce type de jeu.

There's not an original gameplay feature in sight here, but it's incredibly fast, full of action and the graphics are so funny you'll probably die laughing. Just don't come back as a zombie.

Zombies wie sie keiner kennt. LucasArts bleibt seinen Ansprüchen treu. So wollen wir Module sehen.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors is een fantastisch maf spel, dat eigenlijk niet in een hokje past. Vooral leuk is dat je het met z'n tweeën tegelijk kan spelen. De graphics zijn op de Super Nintendo iets beter dan op de Megadrive.

The Video Game Critic
Zombie's graphics are beautifully detailed, and each of its 50+ stages boasts its own unique theme. There's a mummy-infested pyramid, a school invaded by aliens, and a mall loaded with zombies, just to name a few. Creatures include a wide range of movie monsters ranging from the Creature from the Black Lagoon, to little Chucky the doll, to a chainsaw-wielding Leatherface. The game is expertly programmed, and the controls are super responsive. Another feature worth mentioning is the catchy music that plays throughout each stage. I would love to have the soundtrack to this! A two-player simultaneous mode is included, but that requires cooperation to keep both players on the screen, which is more confusing than fun. Overall Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a winner that will especially appeal to horror movie buffs.

If you're the kind of person who loves B movies, especially monster flicks, you'll eat ZAMN up with a spoon. It's a solid shooter with a healthy dose of genuine as well as ironic appreciation for all things creepy. And with 55 levels, each with its own enjoyable twist, there's plenty of this game to love. If you balk at schlock and wish the cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000 would shut up so you can watch the movie, this title may still offer a great deal of appeal on its search and rescue merits alone. In either case, Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a perfect example of a well executed SNES title that fully deserves the cult following it's developed.

Zombies is a good, solid blaster with an original and very funny concept behind it that makes it a little more special than other shooters. After all, a game that give you the opportunity to kill forty-feet babies with exploding soda cans can't be bad.

Zombies Ate my Neighbor est un très bon jeu, l'un des meilleurs hit and run de l'époque. Déjanté à souhait, parodique et surtout amusant, ce soft vous promet quelques bonnes heures d'éclate, seul ou avec un ami. Si la difficulté en fera capituler certains, les plus hargneux y trouveront certainement leur compte. En plus d'être un bon jeu, Zombies constitue aussi un challenge de taille à même de ravir les hardcore gamers tout comme les joueurs occasionnels. Merci Lucasart !

It has a zany B-movie presentation style and wacky sense of humour that never fails to raise a smile. It certainly won't scare you, but it will damn well entertain you, and get you in the mood for watching some classic 80's horror flicks. Plus it has a 2-player co-op mode, so you can play it with your partner or buddy.

In definitiva: Zombies Ate My Neighbors offre divertimento puro, una buona sfida discretamente prolungata, un concept semplice ma che "prende" all'istante proprio per questo, ed è quindi un esempio della Lucasfilm migliore e più creativa. Se siete dei nerd del cinema di genere aggiungete pure un punto alla valutazione finale!

Zombies är ett läckert spel med skön känsla, utmärkt tvåspelar-läge och som dessutom präglas av en stor självdistans. Grafiken är bra uta natt vara så bra att man börjar dregla och samma gäller musiken - men båda är utan tvekan tillräckligt bra för att passa i denna höjdare.

I'm not going to lie to you, or wait until the end of the page to get the point across to you: ZOMBIES ATE MY NEIGHBORS is awesome. It is so awesome that I can't think of a better way to open up my review, because nothing else is appropriate. It is easily the best game I've ever played that wasn't an RPG. I'm telling you this early because I must admit I'm pretty biased in favor of LucasArts' crowning achievement. I have so many memories attached to running around Vincent Price labyrinths and Ed Wood backyards, memories that grasp from Halloween, spring, winter, Christmas, Easter, summer, school and even baptism, that giving a fair, technical review would be a daunting challenge.

Mega Fun
Der Oberknaller ist dieses infantile Monster-Geklatsche nicht, dafür gibt es einfach zu wenig spielerische Abwechslung in den rund fünfzig Levels. Immer nur ballern und nach Menschen suchen ist auf Dauer doch etwas ermüdent. Trotzdem kann ich dem Spiel aber einen gewissen Charme nicht abstreiten, was vor allem an der witzigen, sowie facetten-reichen Grafik und dem herrlich schrägen Sound liegt. Zudem kommt zumindest zu zweit kurzfristig doch viel Freude auf, wenn man die großen Levels durchforstet. Diesem Spiel gebührt das Prädikat, “Nett“, nicht mehr und nicht weniger.

Edge
If there was more to it, Zombies Ate My Neighbours could have been great. As it is, the different styled backgrounds and the addition of some end of level guardians does little to inject life into what is basically a pretty dead game.
