You may well have skipped past this game when it popped up on various digital storefronts last week. I can't say I'd blame you. That title is like a flashing beacon warning you away: a generic, search-term-driven attention-grabber that reeks of desperation and calls to mind too many slapdash App Store monstrosities and me-too Indie Game clunkers.
The title actually works against Zombie Driver in this case, because it's a pretty good game. Not a great one, but a better-than-expected diversion that at least deserves a second look. It's a top-down shooter crossed with the citywide rampages of early GTA, set during yet another zombie apocalypse. Do we need more zombie games? Not really, yet Zombie Driver doubles down on the basic enjoyments you'd expect and justifies its existence through an endearing eagerness to please.
Starting out in a taxi, you begin running missions for the military as the undead fill the streets. Your objectives are never very complicated - drive here and kill everything is the motif that repeats across the 31 stages. Thankfully, it's a fun motif and a robustly presented one.
