I can appreciate the gameplay demo for what it was: a highly scripted demo. Even knowing that, though, there were a number of features that bugged me. Like how the zombies seemed to do absolutely no damage to the guy. Like how he knew exactly where to run. Like how he kept stopping and spraying bullets at the zombies when most of the time it seemed like he should have just kept on running.
Yeah, I get the argument that it’s a demo, and it would be much less interesting if the protagonist were killed in the first 20 seconds, but I feel like if I was playing there, that’s what would have happened to me.
As to the argument that his shooting was herding or helping attract the zombies, I felt like they would have been on his trail no matter what, so I’m not so sure shooting was that necessary.
Also, these are obviously WWZ zombies, not Walking Dead zombies, so I’m astonished that people like Tom like them. I thought we all hated WWZ zombies? Or did I miss the memo where we now like them?
