ZombiU has received mixed reviews from gaming journalists, but GiantBomb has offered a more positive perspective, sharing that:
ZombiU is not a repeat of Red Steel. It’s a smart, scary, incredibly difficult action game with an unfortunate name, an experience that rewards patience and punishes arrogance.
