would you rather be up against zombies that never starve to death and can infect with the simplest penetrating of the skin, or be up against rage zombies that run, dont get fatigued and can infect you with any fluid of any kind but starve to death ?
I personally choose the Resident Evil Zombie, for these reasons.
What you really have to think about is, both types of enemy here, have their own advantages and disadvantages. An RE zombie, will be mobile until it rots away, able to infect you. These will last for decades in prime conditions. The good thing about them, is that they move about as fast as a old man when you duct tape his cane to a bowling ball. Also, being that they truly are the living dead, they do not heal. Every time they attack, they become weaker. Their muscles will tear and they will lose the ability to move. An agile survivor should have no trouble downing a few of these.
Now the Ragers, these guys are bitches. They are technically still alive. They might even heal. The 24 hour adrenaline boost breaks down to this. They are stronger than you. They are faster than you. They can infect you with a single drop of blood. They don't like your face. On the other hand, you don't have to hit them in the head to kill them. A simple torso shot would do. Unlike with the RE zombies, a high caliber machine gun could be used effectively on a crowd of Ragers with devastating casualties. Grenades also. As to the whole, starving in 28 days thing. Remember this. That movie was based in England. A tiny country. it would be alot longer than 28 days before the Ragers ran out of food. Even longer before they begin to starve to death. And for every second of that time, you have millions of bloodthirsty super-men hunting you down.
I think that I would rather have the combination of those 2. The being 'slow, and stupid' of the RE zombies, and the starvation of the Ragers.
But on the other hand, the ragers in 28 days later don't come into the daylight, but in 28 weeks later they run in daylight, did they evolve or something??
I would rather have the 28 days later ragers than the 28 weeks later one.
I'd rather be dealing with the Resident Evil slow-moving zombies. I've always been into the slow-moving ones because they were the first ones in popular culture, and the thought of the slow, relentless pursuit of the dead is plenty enough to deal with. The fast-moving ones are indeed cool, but the slow ones are where it's at!!!
