Zombieland Headshot Fever Review

Let me preface this review by first stating, I am not a “GAMER.” That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy a robust round of beat saber or onward. Or even FitXR or VZfit.

I’m just not that guy who slips on his headset and pays for hours on end. For me, gaming is a welcome distraction from this covid craziness reality.

Zombieland Headshot fits the bill perfectly. The bonus is if you had fun watching the movie, then you will love this game. I certainly did. And there are some added bonuses to the game—namely the voices of the game characters. Little Rock is voiced by Abigail Breslin, from the cast of the movie. Tallahassee’s voice is recorded by Harrelson. But not Woody Harrelson. It’s his real-life brother Brett Harrelson. Which we think is hilarious, so it would be good to bring that up. And Wichita and Columbus’ voice actors were approved by Emma Stone and Jesse Eisenberg, respectively!

If you aren’t a fan of all the cartoon blood and gore, then you can go to settings and turn off the blood in the Settings > Gameplay. But honestly, where’s the fun in that? You really get into the feel and dark humor of the movie with this game.

So what is Zombieland Headshot fever all about? Here’s the description of the overview.

Survive ferocious zombies and enjoy the dystopian humor of Zombieland as Tallahassee, Wichita, Columbus, and Little Rock train you to run the fastest, most dangerous zombie-killing racecourse ever devised – the Zombieland Invitational! Think zombie shooting from ‘The House of the Dead’ combined with time trials from ‘Trackmania’. The hook is the Adrenaline system – two fast and accurate headshots lead to slow-mo, and daisy-chaining headshots is a true flow state (especially after upgrading your weapons and perks!). This is when you’ll post the fastest times.

The intro and training takes you through the game’s initial setup, giving you a chance to sharpen your sharpshooter skills at the range. Once you feel confident in your shooting accuracy, you can then move into the various areas of gameplay.

Let’s go over the critical aspects of the game.

●            ‘Zombieland: Headshot Fever’ combines classic arcade light-gun shooting with split-second racing mechanics.

●            Think zombie shooting from ‘The House of the Dead’ combined with time trials from ‘Trackmania’.

●            Leaderboard chasing speedrun game that’s about shooting zombies as fast as possible to race through a level and setting a fast time.

●            An arcade light-gun style shooter that’s about repeating levels until you perfect a run, hoping to set an incredible time for the global leaderboards or against friends.

●            The core gameplay mechanic of the whole game is Adrenaline Mode, which is activated by two quick headshots.

●            Adrenaline Mode slows down time, giving players more time to line up their next headshot, rack up headshot combos, get faster times, and claw their way to the top of the leaderboards.

○             Crucially, Adrenaline Mode slows down the timer.

○             Therefore staying in Adrenaline Mode is ESSENTIAL to get the best times on each course.

○             Adrenaline Mode is a true flow-state experience. And when combined with the speed, time trial, and leaderboard aspects of the game, we feel that this elevates the game over other zombie shooter games on Oculus Quest.

●            After release, Zombieland VR: Headshot Fever will feature as an esports event in association with VR Master League (https://www.vrmasterleague.com). This was announced by IGN at the SXSW Gaming Awards on 20th March 2021. Blog post here.

●            There’s a low barrier to entry, and a high skill ceiling for the best players.

●            Challenge your audience to see if they can beat your times in the game.

●            The key takeaway we want is for audiences to understand the game’s hook is the Adrenaline system – two fast and accurate headshots lead to slow-mo, and daisy-chaining headshots is a true flow state (especially after upgrading your weapons and perks!). This is when you’ll post the fastest times.

●            It’s shooting. It’s racing. It’s competitive. It’s Zombieland VR: Headshot Fever.

At only $19.99, Zombieland Headshot Fever is available for the Quest and Quest 2 right now. PCVR platforms and Playstation VR will come out later in 2021. If you want to get some tips about how to get to the highest scores and beat your friends,stay tuned for the next post.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
