    While the game will not win anyone over who isn't into action games or killing zombies, those who enjoy shooting zombies in the face will have fun with Mr. Steakfries. Come for the zombie killing, but stay for the humor.
  2. A standard twin-stick shooter that suffers from a certain lack of substance, Age of Zombies will still provide a very entertaining, accessible and action-packed experience.
  3. It’s expertly produced, oozes charisma and energy and the characterisation is sublime.

    Nearly the perfect Mini. It’s clever, the soundtrack is fun with different tracks for every time period, the voice announcing what weapon you picked up changes depending on what era you’re in, and –- most importantly –- it’s great to jump in and play for a bit.
  5. Minis are supposed to be tiny, easily digestible snacks, and trust me when I tell you, Age of Zombies is one hell of a tasty snack!
  6. Your enjoyment of Age of Zombies will most likely be determined by your tolerance for top-down zombie shooter games, of which there are a lot. If you've still got room in your belly for another zombie shooter, then this is most definitely for you. It's simple, it's fun and it's very silly. Those sick to death of the undead might want to give it a miss.

    Age of Zombies is a fun romp that includes all the essentials to make it stand out. The only concern I had was the price-to-content ratio. The game is extremely repetitive and can really give your fingers cramps if playing on a PSPgo.
  8. Fighting undead hordes can be fun in Age of Zombies, but there's not enough content here to keep your interest for long.
  9. All in all Age of Zombies is a fun little throwback to the simpler days of Smash TV. Older gamers may be off put by the rather juvenile humor, but the almost hypnotic gameplay make up for it.
  10. Even though it's limited by the PSP, it's a good time waster that doesn't take itself too seriously. But like my undead friend here, though, this game is a ghoul in a very crowded horde of the living dead. One that's starting to stink a lot.
  11. That's right, people, a zombie dinosaur. Can I get a "hell yeah"? [July 2010, p.107]

    epic game, great music, fun gameplay and literally laugh-out-loud humor (for me, at least).

    The only problem is that it's wayyyy to short.
    But there is a survival mode and the replay value is fairly good Full Review »
