Top 5 Zombie Games of the Current Generation

Posted on July 19, 2013 by admin

Last week, we talked about horror-survival, critically acclaimed game The Last of Us – but we don’t think we’ve talked about zombies enough yet.

While The Last of Us has unanimously been lauded as one of the best zombie-survival games in existence, there’s still others out there that give the PS3 exclusive a run for its money. So turn off the lights, find a comfy spot behind the sofa and get your gaming cap on – it’s time for the top five zombie games of this console generation.

Left 4 Dead 2Xbox 360, PC

Both Left 4 Dead 2 and the original Left 4 Dead are big on co-operative gameplay – because in the event of a zombie apocalypse, you’ve get a better chance of survival if there’s mates around to help you. Preferably wielding some form of chainsaw.

The gameplay is simple enough – try to get to a safe house while avoiding the gnashing teeth of some very hungry brain-crunchers. The story isn’t much to shout about, but for prime zombie-mashing, it’s great for letting off some steam.


One of the release titles of the long-anticipated WiiU, ZombiU is a far cry from the adorable, cutesy style of Mario and his friends. Set in the streets of London, you’ll take the role of a random survivor who has to use anything he can to battle against armies of the undead, who are very keen to take a chunk out of you.

Because of the innovative WiiU touchpad control, this is definitely worth a play. It’s a bit difficult to get the hang of, but once you do, you’re away.

Dead SpaceXbox 360, PS3, PC

The Dead Space series are easily some of the most terrifying video games in existence. Lauded for responsive controls, engaging story-lines and some genuinely scary moments, Dead Space 1, 2 and 3 comprise a franchise well worthy of its success.

After the crew of the Ishimura is struck down by an odd illness, mechanic Isaac Clarke finds himself thrown into a world of horror as he becomes acquainted with the ex-crew: a series of mutated, knife-handed monstrosities that are also very, very angry with him.

Though not technically a ‘zombie game’ as such, you’ll still find yourself pitted against reanimated corpses eager to shove you off this mortal coil.

Play this one on your own – if you dare.

Lollipop ChainsawXbox 360, PS3

This tongue-in-cheek, unabashed zombie slash-and-hack game stars a high-school cheerleader who also – for whatever reason – happens to be a seasoned zombie hunter. When her boyfriend is infected by a zombie, she must chop his head off and hang it from her belt to keep him alive. As you do.

Set on a backdrop of blood and guts, Juliet brandishes her chainsaw while collecting lollipops and ‘sparkle hunting’. Praised for innovative gameplay and the voice acting of Tara Strong – who voiced Harlequin in Batman: Arkham AsylumLollipop Chainsaw doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The Zombie Island of Dr. NedXbox 360, PS3, PC

Dr. Ned didn’t mean to hurt anybody – he just wanted to help the people of Jakob’s Cove when they got sick. Or that’s what he says…

An expansion pack for Gearbox’s highly-successful Borderlands franchise, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is a game in its own right, with everything that makes a great zombie shooter – blood, guts, brains, shotguns and a whole host of undead foes. Throw a charismatic antagonist into the mix, and you’ve got a hilarious game with a great script and plenty of replay value.

If playing these great games gives you a taste for undead-hunting, you could always recreate it with a zombie hunter costume – or, if you can’t beat them, join them!
