Having been adapted from the highly successful version available on the Xbox, Call of Duty: World at War – Zombies has been comfortably positioned in the top 20 of the iPhone app charts for several weeks. After sampling the game, it is clear to understand why it is so popular.
With four sizeable levels to the game, it is safe to say that it will take even the most avid gamer a respectable time to complete it or even get bored of it. Furthermore, it also supports up to four players via Wi-Fi/Internet and two players via Bluetooth. Having been introduced to the game on the Xbox platform whilst at university, it’s been a popular hit amongst my old friends.
Superb graphics ensure that the environment is every bit as murky as its Xbox predecessor, with the Zombies looking every bit the part. With the release of other similar apps including ‘New York Zombies’ and ‘Predator’ to name but a few, for gaming satisfaction this app ticks all the boxes. Granted it may not be for the faint hearted (you must be over 17 to buy the app) and you will only really experience the full ferocity of the game on an advanced gaming machine, but the iPhone app is a great effort.
If you’re looking for a different kind of shoot-‘em-up from the endless conveyer belt which produces the same old thing, then this is the game for you. It’s definitely worth the £2.99 price, but be aware of your surroundings – shooting Zombies on a packed train home was probably not the best idea judging from the weird looks I was receiving.
