Zombasite might be a little hard to wrap your head around but the blend of action RPG and Civilization-style strategy works really well. A little rough around the edges but the game underneath is a gem worth digging for.
Zombasie is loads of fun, regardless of what some of your clan members think. It has loads of quests that don’t run out causing you to exit and re-load the same areas over and over. Instead things feel more organic and as time goes by things become tougher as the world levels around you, the Zombie threat becomes more serious, and that moment of absolute dread is always potentially around the corner. As much as I’ve loved a lot of the other Hack and Slashes, none have been able to provide that on-going feeling of progress that Zombasite can provide. Never having to “quit and reload”, never “running out of things”, those are huge additions to this style. The time spend in Early Access was time well spent and Soldak Entertainment have aced this one.
Zombasite has some genuinely unique and interesting ideas but its presentation and user-friendliness will be a barrier to some players.
The only gripe I really had beyond the rough UI was the sound. I’m completely okay with a game that looks and sounds like a late-90’s dungeon crawler, but some of the sound felt really out of place, or like the waveforms were distorted.
Zombasite is a mediocre game that sadly didn't bring anything new to the table.
