Personal review

The only challenge this game offers are when you enter berserker rage and start losing your health constantly. This either means you have to use an item that comes in limited supply to dispel it or find a statue that cures the state. Otherwise this is plain and simple hack&slash with nothing to interest you (unless watching a girl hack zombies for hours is entertaining to you), and there doesn't seem to be much story either to invigorate any interest.

Berserk mode is entered when the rage meter maxes out, this is tied to how bloody your character gets. Although you can clean your sword whenever you want, this has little effect on how bloody you yourself are. Extremely bloody sword has a habit of getting stuck in enemies and cleaning it only serves to avoid this. There are only few ways to counter berserk mode, avoiding getting blood on you (avoid fights that aren't necessary, though there aren't many), clean yourself as often as possible (happens automatically near certain statues), and using certain one-shot items that clear your rage meter. Neither the statues nor the items are very abundant, so this is actually the most pressing problem you have in the game. Enemies also occasionally drop red orbs that boost the rage meter significantly. You can completely avoid berserk mode by kicking everyone to death, but this is extremely slow compared to slashing them up with your sword.

Editor note

"Zombie Hunters" is the same version of the "Zombie Zone" with some extras like being able to handle Aya's sister, Saki, or Riho and Makoto Futaba as well as a few extra costumes for each character.
