Zombie Revenge is an excellent action/fighter which packs variety and is long enough to keep you busy. It combines demonic bosses, tons of weapons, and familiar locales. If you like this genre, then Zombie Revenge will surely meet your expectations and it's better than Dynamite Deka 2 (AKA Dynamite Cop!)...

Eine solide Arcade-Umsetzung mit überdurchschnittlicher Grafik, durchschnittlicher Musik und einem deftigen Schwierigkeitsgrad. Wenn man "Zombie Revenge" einmal durchgespielt hat, holt man es trotzdem immer mal wieder aus dem Schrank, um es mit Freunden zu zocken. Mit ein oder zwei Levels mehr, einem erweiterten Schlagrepertoire und etwas besserer Musik wäre dieses Game absolut hitverdächtig gewesen.

Although Zombie Revenge is a perfect arcade conversion and is fantastic fun to play, this is only the case for a very limited amount of time.

This game is a good example of how to port an arcade game. Keep the gameplay the same, but add lots of extras, to add some replay value. Unfortunately, the original game was very repetitious and short, and gets boring very quickly -- add in the fact that there are some issues with control, the technical aspects, and this game quickly descends to the “rental” rating. I do recommend picking this game up at Blockbuster or Hollywood Video for a weekend of Zombie-bashing fun.

Revisiting a classic game from a different point of view is a great idea. It's not unheard of--think MK Mythologies, or the third-person POV Duke Nukem game for the PlayStation--but it's rarely been done and it's almost never worked. Given the success of Zombie Revenge, it's something we bet (and hope) a lot more game makers are going to be looking into.

Que manque t-il donc à ce jeu pour être parfait ? Je dirais un peu plus de précision lors de l'utilisation des armes, pas toujours facile de bien viser. Plus de niveaux, un scénario peut-être plus travaillé, ou une interaction plus prononcée entre les deux joueurs. Il n'en reste pas moins que Zombie Revenge est un beat them all incontournable et peu de jeux de ce type peuvent se targuer d'avoir réussi le passage à la 3D.

Was unterm Strich bleibt, ist ein für Arcade Fans ziemlich geniales Stück Splatter-Action. Wer auf Zombies und vor allem viel Action steht, kommt an Zombie Revenge nicht vorbei, auch wenn Zombie Revenge nicht der Hit geworden ist, den wir erwartet haben

Dommage que le jeu ait si peu de pêche. C'est lent, un peu mou et, comme tous les jeux du genre, un peu court.

Of course, challenge in an arcade game is half the point. ZR comes with a number of additional modes into the bargain, like Original Mode, where you can begin to unlock cheats with the help of your VMU. If nothing else, the game is replayable as all hell, and if you like straight arcade beat-'em-up action, it's either this or Dynamite Cop, and at least ZR has some replay value to it.

The game could definitely be considered a worthy follow up to all the great side-scrollers of gaming's past. If you're in the market for a quick flashback, there really isn't much out there to choose from. Dynamite Cop is a worthy contender, but there's certainly more replay value here.

Eigentlich ist dieses Game wie "The House Of The Dead", bloß eben aus einer 3rd-Person-Perspektive. Eine Menge Waffen, viele Zombies und pure Action machen diesen Titel zum Action-Shooter. Nicht nur mit Waffen, auch mit Schlag-Attacken und Special-Moves kann man den Monstern zeigen, wo der Hase läuft. Der Ablauf ist simpel, gruselige Umgebung, mit vielen Zombies und dann natürlich immer ein Endgegner dazwischen. Die Grafik kann sich schon sehen lassen, auch das allgemeine Gameplay ist gut gelungen. Fazit: Für Action-Fans wärmstens zu empfehlen!

Zombie Revenge est un doublon de Dynamite Cop, avec des graphismes et animations plus fouillés et plus fins et des personnages de plus grosse taille. Le jeu vous fait voyager d’étape en étape, mais propose une jouabilité des plus confuses. Dommage, cela gâche un peu le plaisir de castagne qu’apporte l’exagération des coups et bruitages.

Man gab sich wohl schon Mühe mit Zombie Revenge. Es ist keine 1:1 Übersetzung aus der Spielhalle, sondern wurde um viele Inhalte erweitert, die das Spiel wesentlich bereichern. Das Gameplay ist aber eben weit von perfekt oder gar gut entfernt, das zieht diesen Titel ebenso wie die durchschnittliche Technik (wenn das ganze schon nicht innovativ ist, könnte man es wenigstens technisch gut inszenieren, siehe z.B. God of War) nach unten. Allein also eher eine öde Angelegenheit, zu zweit hat es aber durchaus seine Daseinsberechtigung, denn da macht es Spaß.

Det är och förblir själva kärnan av spelet som håller Zombie Revenges fana högt om än under en kort period. De actionorienterade inslagen är svåröverträffade och trots att de väl har upplevts ett par gånger kan de likaväl upplevas ett par gånger till. Sedan blir det mer paradoxalt då spelet inte längre orkar hålla sig uppe av egen kraft och fanan seglar ned med ljudet av en stilla men belåten suck.

Zombie Revenge plays like a third-person House of the Dead, with one or two players fighting zombies and plant monsters in factories and sewers. The generic name is fitting, because Sega clearly didn't put a lot of thought or effort into this title. Still, I like its arcade-style mayhem, which combines fast-paced action with well-defined visuals and crisp controls.

Wow, that's a whole lot of complaining. I have to emphasize that despite these flaws, the game underneath is damn fun. There's just nothing I like as much as some good zombie action. I wish Sega had taken more time with Zombie Revenge; removed the loading times, made some graphical improvements, hired actual voice actors, and added another mission or two. Then they could have made something to really be proud of. As it stands, there's just not enough meat on this zombie's corpse. It's the perfect rental, but I wouldn't buy it.

Save a few bucks by renting ZR. Enjoy the graphics (which are quite sumptuous) and dabble in the VMU mini-games. However, as you hand the CD back to the clerk, have these words all practiced and ready to speak; repeat after me: "Anybody turn in a copy of Crazy Taxi yet?" You see, Crazy Taxi will drive you to happy distraction; ZR will just drive you nuts. Satisfaction, it seems, goes to the quick, not the dead.

Een typische arcadegame die niet is aangepast voor huiskamergebruik, resultaat een oppervlakkige game die alle spanning mist.

This game will only appeal to those who liked the arcade game, which will only appeal to those who don't play many video games.

This is definitely a game that you should rent or borrow only. Don't waste your money on Zombie Revenge unless you REALLY liked the arcade version and you want another action type game in your library. More time should've been spent on this game, especially on the controls and voice acting.

Zombies are great, and so is revenge. Zombie Revenge on the other hand isn’t great. The controls aren’t responsive enough and the game isn’t fun for long. If you are in desperate need of a quick little action game I advise you not to pay more than 8 dollars for Zombie Revenge. You may pick it up for a quick play occasionally, only to realize why you stopped playing the game. Even zombies aren’t enough to save this game from depths of mediocrity. Hell, this game isn’t even quite good enough for the depths of mediocrity.
