StevenDPX finally got his hands on ZombiU, one of the bigger entries in the Wii U launch lineup. However, He opted to play the game’s Capture-The-Flag mode, which pitted Humans versus Zombies. The human player would used the Pro Controller and the TV screen while the Zombie player used the Wii U Gamepad and the touch screen to spawn Zombies to hunt down the player and take the flag for himself.

StevenDPX: I wanted to see what else this tablet controller was capable of, so I tried playing as the Zombies. Admittedly, I was very horrible at it, but it did some cool things that reminded me of playing an RTS. On the Gamepad’s screen, you have an overhead view of the map. There are three flags to get, and the player is visible via and indicator. So your job is to stop his progress by throwing Zombies in his path. Some to distract him, some to kill him, and only one to capture the flag. When you level up, you’ll have access to more zombie types. Of course, you are limited to how many zombies you can place on the map. Certain zombies require certain points to be spawned, and no points mean no zombies. You also have to spread them out since you can’t spawn two or more zombies next to each other. So you have to pick your undead wisely. While I was bad at this, I can see quite a few people enjoying this mode.
