One Paragraph Review: Burn Zombie Burn

by Mitchell Dyer


A claustrophobic zombocalypse should ignite excitement from cooperative partners. Setting zombies ablaze and blowing them to kingdom come to crank your score should further encourage the irresistible urge to high-five. Sadly, Burn Zombie Burn singes itself by forcing you to aim your pistol, uzi, shotgun or chainsaw with the same analog stick that moves your tough-guy hero. Slaughtering 50 flaming monsters while you rack up huge points with a massive multiplier is chaotic fun, but too-few levels, a limited batch of uninspired game-modes and crummy controls ruin the fun of fending off the infinite swarm of brain-hungry baddies.
