    Kind of like XCOM but with zombies instead of aliens, War of the Zombie is deep, rewarding, and massively challenging.

    This zombie apocalypse sim would be fantastic if it weren't for all the rough edges.

    I really love War of the Zombie. I just wish it didn’t have so many flaws and broken features. The game is clearly a victim of its own lofty ambition to create as comprehensive a squad based tactical RTS game as possible on the iOS platform for under $3. It is extremely playable but it has a tendency to fail you in rather inopportune ways.

    Not quite ready to take over the world. [Nov 2013, p.79]

    If the Van Der Veer team would have focused on adding variety and more depth to the squad missions, this game would have been a much better experience.
