ZombiU Review Roundup

Based on 14 critics, Ubisoft’s Wii U-exclusive game, ZombiU, currently holds a 72/100 on Metacritic. Eurogamer praised the game for ‘taking a new path,’ and awarded it with a 9/10. Although Destructoid said ZombiU is awkward, ugly and often nonsensical, it awarded the game with an 8/10.

Greg Miller, the executive editor of IGN PlayStation, said ZombiU‘s controls are ‘clunky, melee combat is annoying, and the game doesn’t look good,’ and gave it a 6.3/10. GameSpot said ZombiU has an ‘uninteresting world and dull combat,’ and gave the game a 4.5/10 – its lowest score yet.

ZombiU can be purchased in North America via the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and/or at retail.

Is The Wii U GamePad A Tablet?

Destructoid editor Jonathan Holmes is confident with his claim that the Wii U GamePad is not a tablet. Unlike a typical tablet, the Wii U GamePad has several buttons, a resistive touchscreen, two analog sticks, and is designed specifically for gaming. Holmes says that if the Wii U GamePad is a tablet, then so are the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. Is the Wii U GamePad a tablet or an entirely different device?
