Zombie Crisis 3D is a rail shooter that gives users the pleasure of destroying zombies without the hassle of having to control the character's movement. This particular version of the popular zombie-themed games that populate Apple's App Store relies on a predetermined course through a multitude of levels to help players escape the zombie attack.
The loose storyline is fairly typical of most zombie games--escape. The plethora of creepy characters attacking you don't really stand out as particularly ground-breaking from a design standpoint, but certainly trump many attempts of competitors on the iOS platform.
Overall the game lacks a certain luster found in other titles. The levels carry a heaviness and darkness that can be tough to see in even a moderate amount of light and the character animations are gruesome but not particularly memorable. It's a 3D blood bath though, and that should get plenty of gamers excited.
The rail shooter concept lends itself well to players that aren't interested in the intricacies of many other FPS-style games that rely on user-controlled joysticks to navigate levels. The game play in Zombie Crisis 3D only requires the ability to accurately tap a zombie in a timely fashion to complete.
For all you brains-gobbling zombie killers, Zombie Crisis 3D would probably be worth the recently reduced price of $1.99, if only for its ease of play. The developers seem to be adding features such as weapons and difficulty settings at a fairly steady clip which may make the investment pay off down the road.
