The game's a bit short and doesn't provide much beyond the visceral glee of running over craploads of people who actually have it coming, but that's probably more than enough for the lean, $10 price tag. And some gameplay depth eventually emerges as the game introduces more undead types and a greater assortment of weapons and vehicles are unlocked and upgraded, requiring you to juggle considerations like armor, speed, and passenger capacity against the needs of the mission. Zombie Driver is good for at least a few afternoons of simple enjoyment, and anyone who ever bore affection for classics like Carmageddon owes it to themselves to drop a few bucks on the thing.

If you’re a fan of zombies or are just in the mood for a bit of mindless fun, you could do much worse then Zombie Driver. Its no frills gameplay may seem a bit sparse to those looking for something a bit meatier, but for cheap, fast entertainment Zombie Driver is a great alternative to bigger, more expensive titles.
Graphically, the game is very reasonable, despite the fact that intense moments of Stig-esque driving can leave you feeling a little seasick. The smashable objects, other than the zombies, leave you feeling semi-satisfied at their destruction and the splat of a well aimed tyre on the head of the walking dead can bring a grin to the face. Needless to say, the sound effects coincide with the graphical level of blood and guts, and the roar of the engine from any of the eight available vehicles is as well received as the sound of the miniguns tearing into the zombies.
Zombie Driver is van de hand van het Poolse Exor Studios (u misschien bekend van de Half Life 2 total conversion mod D.I.P.R.I.P.) en is een aardig tussendoortje. Niet meer, maar ook niet minder.

Overall, I really enjoyed this game. It knew what people would want from it and delivered on it well. After all, the only thing more fun than strapping dual miniguns to a taxi is fixing a bus up with nitrous oxide and flying down the motorway leaving a massive streak of zombie blood behind.
Zombie Driver n'est pas exempt de reproches, avec sa caméra foireuse et son contenu trop chiche. Cependant, c'est bien le fun qui l'emporte. Écraser des zombies par centaines, les carboniser au lance-flammes et les perforer au railgun se révèle particulièrement jouissif. Bref, si vous cherchez un bon défouloir pour moins de 10 euros, voilà un titre recommandable à défaut d'être indispensable.
Zombie Driver can often leave the feeling of being unsatisfied. There are no bosses and no particularly hard missions, just roads filled with a few different types of undead and scattered objectives. Additional objective types, more enemy variety, and a better story could have all helped Zombie Driver from feeling monotonous, but without it there's really no other word to describe it. If it ever gets some enhancements and makes its way to Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network it will be likely be worth grabbing, but for most it might be better to give it a try before picking it up, to see if the concept is strong enough on its own to justify the money. It is, in fact, only $10, so there's a chance it might be a great buy for anyone tired of the big, blockbuster releases of 2009.
Zombie Driver isn't a bad game, but given the number of similar games on the market, there isn't really much to recommend it. The gameplay is solid, but it's also uninspired and repetitive. Mowing down zombies is fun, but it quickly becomes a case of "same old, same old" after the first few levels. There is little variation in the missions, and the side missions add little to the experience. The ability to customize your vehicle is nice, but you'll end up using the bus or limo most of the time anyway. The biggest problem is that the game is both short and lacking in replay value. Even at the budget price of $10, Zombie Driver doesn't offer enough bang for your buck. Gamers with a serious thirst for zombie-killing may find something here, but others would do better to look elsewhere.

You view the world from the top down, so you don’t even get the joy of being in the driving seat, seeing first-hand the available carnage. All your mission - well I say all, there are only seven with a couple of bonus missions - require you to drive off into the city, wreaking havoc as you go, to find a handful of others. Get these back to base and you make cash which you can invest into your car. And that’s kind of it; like I said a game more suited to being picked up for short periods for a bit of tension relief, but a bit of overkill to use a PC to play it on.
Ultimately, this is what you need to know: for ten bucks, you can buy the videogame equivalent of a bag of Cheetos and a porno mag, except the Cheetos are zombies and the naked people are driving cars with flamethrowers attached to them. Zombie Driver won't change your life, but did you really expect it to?
Die nicht mit Pixelblut geizende Mischung aus Carmaggeddon und Micro Machines macht auf den ersten Blick nicht viel falsch: Das Konzept ist unterhaltsam und die technische Umsetzung ist abseits der hölzernen Animationen der Überlebenden handwerklich zwar nicht spektakulär, aber sauber und in sich stimmig - selbst wenn es nur eine Kameraperspektive gibt. Dennoch will nach kurzer Zeit der Funke nicht mehr überspringen: Die Missionen z.B. verlaufen zu eintönig. Die neuen Vehikel sowie die Aufrüstmöglichkeiten sorgen nur kurzzeitig für Abwechslung, bevor der langweilige Alltag einkehrt. Und der befriedigt mit seinen in alle Teile zerlegbaren Untoten und rotgefärbtem Asphalt vielleicht Gore-Fans. Doch viel mehr bietet Zombie Driver nicht. Man wartet also weiterhin auf eine moderne Variante des Klassikers Carmageddon und fragt sich, wieso rondomedia für die Box-Version im Vergleich zur digitalen Steam-Variante einen Preisaufschlag von gut 50 Prozent verlangt.
Na krótką metę takie bezsensowne niszczenie wszystkiego, co wpada pod koła, może być zabawne, jednak przy dłuższym kontakcie gra męczy swoją prostotą, powtarzalnością i niedopracowaniem.
