I’m not sure why, but I still find myself drawn to TimeSplitters: Future Perfect for the PS2. Few give me the unadulterated satisfaction of blasting off, or clubbing, zombie heads as TimeSplitters: FP. Two levels was all it was worth, but still, they were two freakin’ great levels.
Best and worst zombie games? For me, I have to say the most intense and complete I’ve played is the “infected zombie” thriller Resident Evil 4 for the PS2. I can’t help it. I was freaking out the whole time I played the game. Was intense, challenging, and you felt like you accomplished something just to survive a “zombie” onslaught.
Worst: I have two because the first may be too obscure. Infected for the PSP (I know few people actually have PSP’s and fewer still dust them off to play them, but I contend that there are good games for it. However, Infected was not one of them… at all… it sucked… hard). My second pick, Dead Rising. I played this on the Wii, but I doubt the platform matters. What a pointless and boring use of a great premise. In fact, one of the greatest premises in zombie pop culture. The game was monotonous and fully unsatisfying. I don’t give up on games easily, but this was so bad, I just stopped trying. No point.
Betty, Jud, readers… Best and worst; bring it!
