Forums - Nintendo Discussion - ZombiU Has "Generally Favorable reviews" on Metacritic - Stop All Red Steel Comparisons

http://www.metacritic.com/game/wii-u/zombiu

Metascore: 75/100

Red Steel: 63/100

So for those who need convincing, I think this is solid evidence that ZombiU is generally considered to be decent, unlike that one mediocre Ubisoft-developed Wii launch title. Moreover, I fully expect the game to outsell Red Steel, which is sitting at 650K according to VGC. Also I bet a sequel is likely, though I think Ubisoft might make it a multiplatform title.

Without the gamepad zombiU just wouldn't be the same. Multiplatfrom for the sequel sounds very unappealing assuming they would have to make compromises for it to play on other systems.

"Gamers" logic: if the game it's not CoD and it's lower than 90 that means it sucks.

Anyway I heard a lot of positive things about the game and it's apparently the 3rd most popular game on Miiverse. 

75 is a good score for a new IP and specially a launch game that's not a port, so I will definitely pick it up when I get a Wii U.

I agree, but then again I expect third-party publishers to try and milk the daylights out any decent and decently-selling new IP. It would not surprise me if Ubisoft is considering a bigger-budget sequel to hit not just Wii U, but other next-gen consoles.

Comparisons to Red Steel aren't completely unfounded, but ZombiU comes out on the positive side of every comparison. I still kind of want to try Red Steel, and both 1 & 2 are obscenely affordable used.



Thank you very much for the Smash demo code, noname2200! :)
