Koudelka – Review

Koudelka first gained media attention at the 1999 E3 show. Anyone who saw its looping demos admitted that the game showed promise.

Zombie Revenge just changes the scenery a bit, adding a Resident Evil-esque theme to a pretty basic formula.

Zombie Revenge – Second Opinion

When I first saw the score Ben gave Zombie Revenge, I thought two things: The new guy is out to prove something and he didn't bother to play through the game thoroughly. That's because I had relatively high expectations ever since I heard that Sega was going to be publishing it.
