So I know everyone is busy with Halo 3 ODST, Aion, Scribblenauts, and all the other crap thats been coming out recently, but I downloaded Zombie Apocalypse on Xbox Live earlier today and played through a few stages on it.

Its essentially an arcade shooter and the characters to me feel like they were taken directly from Left 4 Dead. You use the right thumbstick to fire in 360 degrees around you, there are multiple weapons and you just go through stages mowing down zombies. I really like mindless multiplayer games like this.

It costs 800 Microsoft Points and I would assume $10 on PSN.

If anyone feels like grabbing this and playing for a while, I would be up for it. Feel free to add my gamertag.

    Yeah it also feels a lot like Hunter: The Reckoning if anyone remembers that game

    I am already pre-disposed to hate this game, since I accidentally bought the shitty theme on the marketplace site when I was trying to get the demo (this is what I get for clicking fast without really looking at what I was doing). $2 for a crappy jpeg. "cool".

    Ok, so the demo seems pretty cool. Is this worth the MS Fun Bucks?

    The demo makes it looks like a decent shoot em up. It is more akin to robotron or geometry wars then left 4 dead or gauntlet.

    I bought it. Lots of fun. After the first 7 days the extra days feel alot like Geometry wars meets left for dead. Screen is absolutely covered in zombies. Was nice to be #2 in the world until more people bought it :p

    Man I love games that are mindless like this and add RPG elements, even if their light. ALA MUA, Hunter. All the ones on XBLA have been meh so far. This is good, but not 800 point good. Fun, mindless action. Really is Smash TV + Zombies.

    Is it better than 'Burn Zombie Burn!', if anyone has played both?

    Dead Nation is apparently coming out first quarter 2010 to add to the Zombie PSN maddness.
