ZombiU writer talks about how the game could be improved
Needs moar melee.
ZombiU writer Gabrielle Shrager says that there is only one thing she would improve in ZombiU, and that’s the melee fighting, saying that the over-reliance on the cricket bat wasn’t intended, and that the players deserved a deeper melee experience.
“More melee weapons would be one of the first things on our list,” she told Game Informer. “Give me a halberd to keep those zombies back. The pickings in the Tower of London’s armory would feel like Christmas.
“The cricket bat was designed to be used almost as a last resort, significant because it’s such a violent assault on your senses”
“Players quickly learn that it won’t save their bacon against more than one zombie at a time (either the hard way, or by listening to the Prepper),” she said. “Some players depend on it entirely instead of scavenging for ammo and new gear, and these players deserve a richer melee experience.”
Some chainsaws would have been nice.
