The spin-off is somehow less engaging then the original.
I have just finished calling the original game "boring" but as much as I have a personal disliking for it (maybe it's just the feedback it gets) but personally, I find it's spin-off "Undead Nightmare" to be way, WAY WORSE I have nothing really against Zombie games even though I don't exactly play them. But I really don't like an open-world game as a foundation for a zombie game.
Unlike Red Dead Redemption, I have no idea what the plot is to this one. It starts out with your family getting turned into zombies, nobody knows why but you go around searching for a cure. Okay so the plot sounds like an obvious excuse to get you into as much shootouts as possible and... That's exactly what this is, I have one beef with these types of games and that's that the ammo is very limited and you can only shoot them in the head, but when I played it by the time I did get a headshot I wasted all my ammo.
The idea of an open-world game in my opinion is having this vast world where you can explore and do whatever you want that's given to you but here, you run into a zombie every 100 meters and that's if you're lucky. It basically discourages you from exploring because you need that ammo. The only weapons you can get that don't have ammo is the dagger from the first game or the lasso, and for a zombie game where you're more likely then not to be facing multiple enemies at once they just rendered this tactic completely useless and with the dagger even that's rendered almost useless because you aren't given a way to kill them with it.
So, this is probably the only game where I've given up on it within a half hour and yet I believe I have more then enough to write a review on it. This game is probably the weakest zombie game I have ever heard of in plot and gameplay (and I've played Left 4 Dead). I really hope that if any future comes to this series, please do it in the old west.
