Critic Reviews for Zombieland: Headshot Fever
A brightly coloured, cel-shaded zombie shooting gallery, that feels a more solid package than the Oculus Quest original and successfully channels the simplistic fun of 90s lightgun games.
Zombieland: Headshot Fever Reloaded is a great VR shooter with precise shooting, good enemy variety, a nice cel-shaded art style, and near infinite replayability. While the base campaign is short, the multiple goals, B-side levels, upgrades, and leaderboards help to flesh out the game and provide a compelling reason to continue jumping back into the chaos long after you first complete the levels.
An addicting, nostalgic arcade light gun-style shooter where gameplay is king. It's so difficult to not go on "one more run", and it's perhaps the most fun I've had killing zombies in a video game. Some will find it challenging while others will find its repetitive nature to be one-note, albeit a very high note indeed.
A solid VR shooter that taps into what made the arcade experience so engrossing. Its art style is distractingly bland in places, but the meat of the game is about blasting zombies for a high score, so it certainly isn't as noticeable when the cartoon claret is spraying in slow motion.
In the end, we were pleasantly surprised with Zombieland, even if it doesn't really lean on any form of movie-based nostalgia. Its simple yet effective structure meant that we were happy to sink yet another half hour into it, which was only aided by the enjoyable gun controls. It’s certainly not out to win any awards, and it doesn’t push the medium any further, but if you’re looking for a straight-to-the-point zombie shooter, you can’t really go wrong.
For those looking for a budget pick up and play VR shooter that offers an experience like the light gun games and arcade shooters of old; Zombieland: Headshot Fever Reloaded is an excellent choice that should not be overlooked as just another movie tie-in cash grab. In fact the movie license, besides some celebrity cameos and lore is mostly inconsequential. Sometimes you want a quick pick up and play game that scratches that satisfying shooting gallery itch and this game does a great job at that. While the gameplay loop and mechanics may be simple, the on rails and fast paced action keep things exciting and there is a high ceiling for those seeking a high score challenge.
I didn’t expect much going into Zombieland: Headshot Fever Reloaded but I came away from it finding that I had a lot more fun with it than I expected. The shooting feels great and the levels being so replayable made me want to keep jumping back in to try and set a better score.
Zombieland: Headshot Fever Reloaded is a new VR version of the action game Headshot Forever, which draws from the history and gameplay of similar games like House of the Dead. The game features a unique "family" of characters who have banded together to survive the zombie apocalypse, led by the tough but lovable Tallahassee. The game includes both training and mission modes, with missions growing increasingly difficult as you progress through the game's characters. Overall, the game offers a fun and challenging zombie-slaying experience for VR players.
