    I really really wish Sega would say they were working something with some deeper gameplay. (subliminal message beginning) "Streets......of......Rage."

    If you want a little more meat to your games, or hate games that purposefully kill you off right when you're getting to the good part, then maybe you'd better skip this one.

    Although the playability of this title can still be questioned Sega is to be commended for attempting to add extras to lengthen the time a gamer plays this title.
  4. ZR isn't really that great an investment if you're looking for a real game that takes weeks to conquer, but, if you're looking for plain and simple arcade thrills with a few sweet twists, you're bound to like the territory.

    A game this simple should have air-tight control right? Well, you would think so. "Zombie Revenge" suffers from SEVERAL control problems that seem to take the fun right out of the game.

    Not only does it make the game much harder than it should be (again, remnants of the arcade roots of the game), but it defies all logical thought, and that is really inexcusable.
  7. The shopping list of things that don't work right is long and comprehensive.
  8. ZR will just drive you nuts. Satisfaction, it seems, goes to the quick, not the dead.
  9. 70
    But the frustrations of the game, including its limited replay value and annoying sound and controls, keep this game from being a "must-own" for all action addicts.
  10. 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.
  11. Gaming Age

    Gamers that grew up on frustratingly tough arcade games such as this, will most likely feel at home with the intense level of difficulty.

    Good quick fun from time to time and the voice acting is so absymal - that's worth laughing at alone.
