Biological warfare is so 1990s, but it’s making a comeback in Pandemic 2.

Zombie games are often well designed but very rarely do they create the sense of panic and an atmosphere of tension like The Last Stand 2. Trapped behind a barricade and then forced to live a life hopping from safe house to safe house, you must fend off zombie attacks by night and gather sufficient resources to move you and your group between buildings. Will you make it to union city before time and supplies run out?
Here we go for another adventure on the zombie attack game express, and this time we’re in the first class carriage. The Last Stand 3: Union City switches up the once-familiar format for a side-scrolling shooter with RPG qualities and the desperate survival that we’ve always enjoyed prolonging in this brilliant series of zombie survival games.
Occasionally, flash-based shooter games can feel like the developer is just messing about with a few guns and level ideas, but in SAS Zombie Assault 3, it’s nothing but serious and challenging entertainment all the way. Defend yourself against hordes of zombies that are intent on penetrating the defences of the building you’re trapped in, with only a few barricades between you and your organs becoming a menu item for the undead. Oh, and you have guns. So many guns.
Those that are reading this have almost certainly played and experienced the horrendously addictive SAS Zombie Assault 3, or have at least delved into one of the previous titles. As a zombie survival game, SAS Zombie Assault 3 requires you to simply stay alive, though this is easier said than done when standing in a house that is slowly becoming surrounded by zombies and your only initial weapon is a glock handgun. Many levels and upgrades later, you’re blasting the buggery out of any zombie that comes your way and barely letting them make a scratch in your window barriers. Though SAS Zombie Assault 4 may be a long way off, or even be a dream that remains of the pipe variety, some improvements can be made to the previous game and some ideas implemented to the sequel that would make it an altogether more impressive title; here are just a few of these ideas to be viewed or ignored at your leisure.
One of the biggest turn-offs when playing a game that involves strategy is luck. Though it is inevitable in a strategy game that involves a mixture of artificial intelligence and unpredictable human input that there will be an element of luck involved in the gameplay, it can be a little deflating when you have employed a seemingly flawless strategy to have to rely too much on luck in order to make progress. This is reflected most notably in the infuriating Madagascar issue in the game where it can be almost impossible to infect it unless you somehow have a magical stroke of luck that means you just so happened to make your disease spread there before its ports shut down. Luck needs to be less of a dominating factor in the game and the emphasis should be on carefully thought out strategy instead.
