    Zombie Driver HD plays out like a cross between Grand Theft Auto 2 and Choplifter. Players race around the city picking up survivors and avoiding the zombie hordes. It's a fun game with a surprising amount of content for ten dollars. On the other hand, the missions become a bit tedious by the end. Zombie Driver HD is worth a look!

    All in all, Zombie Driver HD is not a bad game. There is sadly no multiplayer to speak of, which is a missed opportunity in my opinion. Being able to tear up the streets with a friend would have added to the enjoyment. The game does offer enough content for a good time, and the improved HD visuals make the on-screen carnage really pop. If you are a fan of car combat games and killing mindless zombies, I suggest checking this one out.

    Zombie Driver HD may not be the highest brow game, nor may it be on many most wanted lists. What it is though is a big dumb game that is fun to play.

    Overall Zombie Driver HD is an enjoyable fast paced driving game where killing zombies comes as standard. Despite the lack of multiplayer, if you're looking for a game that you can just relax and play without getting stressed out, but still want a challenge if desired, then you'll enjoy what's on offer here, and if you have 800MS Points ready to spend, just go for it.

    Zombie Driver HD never grows more complex than slaughtering zombies with a car, but it makes up for that simplicity with sheer fun.

    It's straightforward, meaty gameplay, but the lack of multiplayer feels a little brain-dead. [Issue#92, p.87]

    The problem is that the single-player package stretches the pretty basic gameplay worryingly thin, and leaderboard competition can only keep you interested for so long. If you're looking for a decent arcade romp you could do a lot worse than pick up Zombie Driver HD. It's just that you could do a lot better, too.

    Scrappy design and presentation mean that it's hard to give Zombie Driver a more enthusiastic thumbs up - but as a particularly goofy example of the sort of guilty gaming pleasure that rarely gets a look-in amongst the autumn blockbusters, it's impossible to dislike.

    The fun factor varies wildly. The story mode is mostly a snooze, composed of 31 short missions ranging from rescuing survivors and clearing out zombie lairs to destroying zombie bosses.

    It's potential is never fully realised. [Jan 2013, p.79]

    When I started playing this game It looked like a decent game.
    The intromovie shows you what happend to the world and how the world became full with crowds of zombies.

    You realize when the game starts that the car is seen from an above perspective.
    It looks like Grand theft auto 2, altough this comparison as many people call it on youtube are not really what the game actually is.
    A taxi is where you will be start off, the point is that you need to drive to some points and save people who are trapped because of the zombies, also there are some secondary missions.
    The missions are made very clear with the map (not ingame), and the indicators in the game.
    You can actually upgrade your car with weapons and some other upgrades.

    After beginning to drive your car to your mission, begins the horror, the games cameraposition is strange and you will get dizzy in the beginning, it does not feels right.
    There are very less upgrades needed for a car, only some weapons upgrades are mostly needed.

    There are 17 missions wich is by far not enough to keep you entertained because the game is very repetitive and the zombies are way to easy to kill when you achieve the 3th car in the game.
    It feeled more like a game where you needed to drive around then rather to do a mission.

    From the price of the game you can't expect that much, But this game was not varied enough to keep me entertained.
