As we approach the twilight of 2013, I can’t engage in my favourite hobby without hitting a zombie. I’m talking, of course, about swinging a dead cat. Before you call the authorities, take note that the cat isn’t properly dead and I certainly didn’t harm it in any way. The mewling monstrosity is mostly dead, meaning that in some ways it’s just another zombie on the corpse vine. The rotters are everywhere, from Austin to Shakespeare, and the tainted tide shows no signs of letting up. On Halloween, the dead are going back to Berlin in Rebellion’s Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2. I thought the original had the most appropriate title for a vidya game ever but popping a ‘2’ on the end makes it absolutely perfect.
Snipers and zombies go together about as well as porridge and cyanide. They’re not smart enough to use cover and they don’t tend to be particularly adept at climbing, so a long and dull vigil in a clocktower with a high-powered rifle should be the perfect antidote to their shambling approach. It won’t be that simple though. Expect Mr Sniper to spend most of his time running through the horde as he attempts to put a stop to this next bout of occult dabbling.
