As you may have noticed I review games that are somewhat close to my heart. Also you may have noticed some of these games are a few years old. That does not mean they are bad or outdated and I’m sure there are still people out there that have not experienced the zombie killing thrills of the “Nazi Zombies mode” of Call of Duty: World at War.
Now what’s so special about these zombies? Well for starters they are living dead people but these zombies pack a Jew-killing punch. They are Nazi Zombies! The idea of the game is to survive as many rounds as you can. There is no victory to be achieved, just a personal record to break every time. You gain points by killing zombies or repairing windows, from which the bastards are trying to get in. With points you can purchase weapons off the walls or the mystery box that gives you a random weapon. You can also open locked doors with these points in order to advance in the map. There are 4 maps in the game mode, each more fun than the last. The first map “Nacht der untoten” (translates: Night of the undead) is just a simple 3 room zombie killing fest. By purchasing map packs for the game (the bundle is around €24) you can get 3 more Nazi zombie maps for the game. If you liked the first map, which is free, you’ll love the 3 others. They have more diversity and more room for strategical manoeuvres. You gain access to traps, character upgrades, different weapons and weapon upgrades. All and all it’s great coop fun as long as everyone plays fair and works together.
Now comes my favorite part of the review: talking about how the game sucks. However I can’t really say anything bad about Nazi Zombies as a game. Sure it was made by Treyarch which is Infinity Ward’s retarded cousin who’s always trying to copy everything IW does. *cough*blackops*cough*, but still it’s very well balanced… for a minigame. After playing Nazi Zombies I noticed that I’ve grown a certain hatred towards dogs. Those god damn devil dogs that spawn out of nowhere in the last 2 maps every 5 rounds will make you lose your mind. They run as fast as you sprint and sometimes bug and run through walls.
I must say paying for the map packs sucked balls. That kind of idea is just evil. Making me pay more for something I like is never nice. I’d say it’s an insult to the fans. I first have to pay around €60 for a game that I hardly ever played and then sink more money into it because of an epic minigame it has. It’s all the more reason to hate Treyarch. Bunch of greedy tossers they are.
In conclusion: Loved it. You can play it alone, split screen with a friend or online. Recommending it to anyone who likes to blow off some steam and see bits of undead flesh flying about. Also recommending it if you have unsettled business… with Nazis.
