  • Summary: Pet Zombies in 3D lets players raise their very own decaying human pets by managing their special dietary preferences (brains and the like), bodily maintenance (or lack thereof) and morbid activities needed to keep them happily undead.

    And that's the thing--Pet Zombies is an amusing idea. Monotonous gameplay, however, is not. [Oct 2011, p.86]

    One huge snore fest.

    Ultimately, when your zombies aren't interesting you cannot connect to them. They all behave in much the same way, and you never get to do simple things like learning their personalities or even watch more than one of your zombies interact with each other.

    Pet Zombies is an average game which gets too boring too fast. In case you couldn't tell, this game is meant to be humorous and taken as a joke. It is the only parody game in the whole entire pet simulation genre (that I know of) which should've been used to its advantage, but for the most part, it isn't. Pet Zombies does succeed at one thing though: humor. While burning a zombie on fire eventually loses its charm, it still is funny the first few times. The main issue with the game is, well, there isn't much to do which leads the game to being plain boring. The graphics actually use the 3DS's 3D effects very well, and they are animated perfectly. The cartoon graphics fit right in as well. Although the multiple zombie types to choose from have some differences, there aren't enough to be noticeable. Also, you only start with 2 zombie types and have to unlock the rest. You start off with very few items and only one background. Everything else has to be unlocked, and since the game is just too boring, you won't end up unlocking much. The reason it is boring is that you constantly have to use the same items (in a torturous or nurturing way) to try and level up your zombie so you can afford new items, but this process just takes too long. I like that the game allows you to either torture or nurture your zombie to gain XP for your next level. Torturing seems like the better choice though, as it takes less time. The game also has minigames. While presented as a huge part of the game, in all honesty you won't be playing them much and the game won't punish you for that. Pet Zombies would be fine as a $5 downloadable game, but as a full-priced game it just doesn't have as much content as it should. Expand
