I can understand some of the frustrations around the cricket bat requiring upwards of four hits to take down a zombie, especially if you are used to recent zombie games where it is easier to lop off limbs than it is cutting through butter.
However taking so many hits to cave in the brains of a zombie, is… well far more realistic (used in the loosest of terms ) If you play Zombiu expecting Call of Zombies then it may seem a chore taking so long to dispense of one foe, however for a true survival horror title like this I think it is a great system; more than two zombies and you’re in trouble. My only criticism with the cricket bat is that the controls feel somewhat unnatural until you get used to timing your shots.
As for a sequel, more zombies, a larger variety of areas, less sewers, or possibly a more open world less linear structure to the game play. Having said that (and being a lover of zombies) Zombiu is better than I imaged it would be, and really nails the survival horror that resident evil used to be loved for before it went all action.
