Damn it Larry, I'm looking for reasons to NOT buy this... and you aren't helping
I always value your opinion on games, and this is really making me regret buying a new receiver instead of this system
Sorry. It is a damn good game though, much, much, MUCH better than I expected it to be, especially with the initial reviews.
One thing that was good to see though was all the love it was getting on the MiiVerse.
For those who do not know what that is, which I was included in that bunch until I got my WiiU, MiiVerse is a little community Nintendo has created that is basically just an online forum. There are communities within MiiVerse, for example ZombiU has it's own, and people are free to make posts in regards to anything about the community. It is a hybrid between a twitter and a forum like Neowin. You can directly respond to posts, you can take a screenshot in game and make a post (while the game is running as well), etc. I have to say, MiiVerse is actually pretty damn cool.
But as I said, all of the people who were already playing the game were literally all loving ZombiU. I had posted "ZombiU so far seems to be a criminally underrated game by the critics," and within 1 minutes I had 10 "Oh Yeahs," which is the equivalent of a Like on Facebook. In right around a minute 10 people agreed what a good game it is.
There were also people talking strategy. How best to take on this section. Etc. It was good to see people were not only liking the game, but talking about it as well. Besides the new Super Mario game, it looked like the ZombiU Community in MiiVerse was the most active community so far. So I do think word will keep spreading that it is a damn fine game.

great review, I really hope sales are solid for this title. A splinter cell type game would possibly work great with the gamepad as well, I can easily picture some high tech spy gear camera that is controlled by the gamepad. Looks like Ubisoft only has Rayman coming out so far though..
I can def see a game that utilizes tech gadgets like a Splinter Cell working out really well with the GamePad. No doubt. I do believe this game really is going to be looked back upon as one of the initial launch games that got the GamePad aspect almost entirely right.
