  • Summary: As the name suggests there are zombies and there is driving in the game. The goal is to rescue survivors from a zombie infested city... No it's not just an excuse for killing innocent zombies! Well... maybe it is... :) but they are not innocent, they are zombies and they are evil!!! [Exor]

    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.
  2. Fun while it lasts, but alas hit 'n' run is about all you get. [Mar 2010, p.95]
  3. It's short and simple, which is just as well. [Mar 2010, p.83]
  4. Pretty funny...for the first hour or so. Then it keeps repeating itself, until you wish you could go back to the good old Carmageddon days. Just for zombie maniacs.
  5. Good fun until the novelty wears off. Which doesn't take that long, sadly. [Issue#30, p.56]
  6. Nice visuals, easy playability and boring after while... if you remember the old times when Carmageddon hit the streets you won’t be disappointed. [Issue#187]
  7. The lifeless Zombie Driver fails at being even mindless fun—these zombies should’ve stayed in the grave.

    This game is simple is awesome! I have several friends who play and leader board competitions between friends keeps me coming back to defend my scores. The graphics are well done and the physics are excellent. Playing with a controller makes the game more enjoyable as well. Hoping for Zombie Driver 2 with multiplayer. Expand

    I must say I agree with what digimortal81 had to say. I'm not sure why this game has a lot of negativity. I purchased this game through steam as part of a bundle and only paid 2.50. I think the graphics are better than a lot of other indie games that I've played and the overall game is very polished. Sure it would be better if the mission had better variety and multiplayer would be totally awesome. But the variences of game types and leaderboard aspect gives players a little more to play. This one definitely gets my vote! Expand

    The hate this game gets is beyond me-I bought it for 2.49 and I love it. If you pay more than ten for this I guess you could gripe a bit. It is Death Race with Zombies. Play this game loud and with a couple of beers it is even better. That can lead to drunken facebook posts about your game score since the game allows you to post to facebook.

    The art and sound has a solid feel to it-the environments and cars look polished and play well against each other visually-however it do not understand how you can destroy a light post but not a tree??the different game types (3) and the variation in the arenas with the multiple cars make it very replayable. Of course the missions are very similar but that is why you have different cars and different secondary objectives. I do enjoy the silly/stupid things the survivors say when you pick them up. My favorite is the racing mode-the game shines with all the carnage. i WISH it had multiplayer because that would make the race mode or co-op slaughter mode amazing.

    I'd give a 10 but I am knocking off 1 point since you can't play against other people online.

    Great fun game for short durations. It's not a game for the long term, but the great support and patches and new game modes that are released regular make up for that! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Das Spiel ist grafisch sehr simpel... Aber wer bei diesem Spiel fantastische Grafiken vermisst, der hat sich im Vorfeld einfach nicht informiert. Die Missionen sind für dieses Spiel, das etwas für zwischendurch ist, gelungen. Es macht einfach nur Spaà Expand

    At first I never thought I would get into this game because the camera angles and the general perception of the game was so nauseating, in a literal sense… However I must have got used to it as I did manage to complete the game! For all I finished the game, it was far from an interesting story and the entire thing consisted of shooting zombies, clearing areas and fetching survivors to bring back to a base… That’s pretty much the extent of the game and frankly it just wasn't that substantial or satisfying... Admittedly it holds your attention but I have a feeling there are much stronger titles out there! Expand

    Could not play this game pass the hour mark as it is a complete waste of time. Terrible mechanics and boring gameplay. Avoid at ALL cost. Free or paid, your time is just wasted by this terrible game Expand
