If there's one thing better than blasting away at zombies, it's the opportunity to blast zombies with the help of people from across the world. That is the nicest thing about SAS Zombie Assault 3. Sure, the game itself has good mechanics, the controls are intuitive, the combat is streamlined, and the pace of action is frantically fun (depending on the difficulty anyway). But the real charm lies in the fact that you can connect with a small group of random players and try to survive as many waves of the undead as you can.
The action is non-stop and hectic, just the way it should be. With zombies bashing down every single barricade and blocking every single path available, players find themselves blasting away with abandon in the hopes of culling the overwhelming crowd of flesh eating undead in SAS Zombie Assault 3. Much like its' predecessors, the shoot-evade-survive technique still holds strong in the third installment of the game. This is further improved by all new weapons, tons of new enemy variants, and most importantly, the multiplayer function that adds an unbelievable amount of replay value in the game. Besides, in this day and age, who does not love zombies?previous wave.
The basic idea in SAS Zombie Assualt games is that you are defending a small location against several waves of zombies. Your location allow you to set up barricades on passages and at the same time, shoot out towards the zombies from behind your walls. The zombies will try to break down any passages (that you can repair), and once inside, they will try to chase you down. It is a very simple game mechanic that has made the game quite famous online. The reason is that as busy as it may seem, the process is actually quite fun. There is something absolutely satisfying about being able to put back barricades after you're done clearing out the
Of course, the game's overall difficulty gets progressively harder with each wave that comes -also newer locations become larger and harder to manage. This is where the game's real challenge lies: in the fact that it will slowly, but surely, overwhelm you with zombies to the degree of games such as Zombies Must Die. The best way to fight the oncoming wave is to get help, and this is where the multiplayer mode really shines. When faced with several dozen mutated zombies running after you, having a couple of folks adding to your firepower can make a big difference.
The graphics for SAS Zombie Assault 3 are well detailed and neatly made. However, some backgrounds do get confusing -especially when chunks and bits of zombies start to litter the pathways. Add in the fact that some of the gruesomely depicted ghouls are already a bloody mess to begin with and it does get somewhat confusing at times to figure out what you're really shooting at (spotting enemies is a matter of observing movement rather than recognizing shapes). If running scared zombies is your thing then this definately isnt the game for you, but if shooting such undead fiends into a gooey mess is your thing, then we highly suggest you give this game a try. Ideas for a SAS Zombie Assault 4 have already been discussed and by the looks of the trailer here we can't wait for the next game in the series.
