    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. Running over zombie dogs is always fun. [Apr 2010, p.91]
  5. Beyond being needlessly repetitive, there are some issues with the presentation that make Zombie Driver feel a bit unfinished or, at least, untested.
  6. Zombie Driver isn't a bad game, but given the number of similar games on the market, there isn't really much to recommend it.
  7. 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.
  8. Ultimately, this is what you need to know: for ten bucks, you can buy the videogame equivalent of a bag of Cheetos and a porno mag, except the Cheetos are zombies and the naked people are driving cars with flamethrowers attached to them.
  9. 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]
  10. Good fun until the novelty wears off. Which doesn't take that long, sadly. [Issue#30, p.56]
  11. Zombie Driver is simply a dull, unpalatable game.
  12. Flawed and monotonous. [Mar 2010, p.75]
  13. The lifeless Zombie Driver fails at being even mindless fun—these zombies should’ve stayed in the grave.

    Repetitive and boring. The missions in Story mode are usually slight variations of the same thing. Slaughter (a.k.a. Survival mode) isn'tRepetitive and boring. The missions in Story mode are usually slight variations of the same thing. Slaughter (a.k.a. Survival mode) isn't much better and the camera is often proves to be not your friend. Most of the weapons are either Awesome but Impractical or are just plain useless. What's amazing is that the game lacks any kind of a Free Roam mode, despite the game is clearly built for one. Even though my system is above the recommended specs, the game just crawls. It almost feels like the game isn't that well optimized.

    Not worth even the $10 price tag. Or $2.50. Or anything really.

    The recent patch has alleviated almost all of the issues that this game had at launch, playing it with a controller is much more enjoyable The recent patch has alleviated almost all of the issues that this game had at launch, playing it with a controller is much more enjoyable than with the keyboard. All thats needed is a free-roam game type and I'll be completely satisfied. Full Review »

I personally have a hard time getting used to the camera view, but thats only because I'm used to games like GTA. Overall, it's a fun game... although not much depth. However, if you like killing zombies and this is a good buy for a couple bucks. Full Review »
