You know what really bugs me?! The fact that when I'm playing COD 4: Nazi Zombies, they require more hits to kill as the levels get higher. WTF is that?! One bullet to the brain = one dead zombie. Period. End of story. I love the game but I hate that its just a shade away from being completely realistic.
Well you have to remember it is a game that is supposed to get harder as you go. Really to make it harder and keep the one shot=one kill ratio then you would have to increase the number of zomibes which would make the reload times and ammo count critical.
I think that would actually be the way to go as far as doing a "realistic" zombie game. Start out with a few and slowly add more making ammo more hard to find. Then at the higher levels ammo might be so hard to find that anything but a one shot = one kill would leave you with a real shortage.
Well... Slow zombies are scarier (maybe 1000000 times) but runners are a lot more dangerous and (is true) fun, but Romero didn't create runners, i think (THINK) it was snyder... and well... i'm a big Romero fan so... loyalty first!!
NVD, you are right and possibly wrong. It depends on the volume. If it was inevitable (Death) I'd prefer runners, for pure challenge. But if my survival depended on it, the slower ones are just that slow, and I could out maneuver them much easier. But the scary part of the classic zombies is the fact that they arrive in hoards, are virtually unstoppable, and have unwavering resolve.
