Being a huge fan of first-person shooter games (FPS) for the iPhone and iPad, I figured Combat Arms: Zombies would be an awesome game and worth the $4.99 spent. However, I was sadly disappointed due to the game being a fixed-shooter with limited content. Combat Arms: Zombies (by NEXON MOBILE) is a version of the online free-to-play game (Fireteam Mode) that NEXON is trying to cash in on. While they give away some items in this iOS universal game to be used in the web-based game, which is great for those users who play online, but for users like me whom have never played the online game — those items are pointless. At least the game graphics range from good to awesome, and the level game play is decent, albeit there are currently only 2 game areas (Dark Sewers and Cabin Fever) with 5 game modes (Easy, Normal, Hard, Hell, and Infinity). The game areas get boring as the zombies come from the same 4 or 5 areas, which is way too predictable for me. The only real difference in the game modes are the amount of zombies, which while challenging (again, is predictable) and ultimately gets boring due to the limited area you are able to move about in.
There are upgrades to your equipment and weapons, as well as other items like a gas mask, but they are costly and not at all user friendly to execute purchases and equip those purchases. Of course, to really trick out your player, you will have to buy gold through in app purchase, which again is not the most user friendly. Combat Arms: Zombies has increased their price now to a whopping $6.99, which is sure to kill the downloads for this mediocre FPS game that has huge potential. Some feature to make this game better and provide more depth: expanded game play, multi-player, co-op and versus game modes, not to mention more content. For more iPhone video app reviews. Crazy Mike
