Definitely a must play for any self respecting gamer. As a kid before the internet, a lot of the time you rented a game on faith and were occasionally rewarded with a game like this. Good gameplay, great music, great sense of humor.

I remember seeing an article regarding this game back then, but on the SNES. I never had the chance to play it though, but I wonder if that port is a good as the Sega Genesis one.

Always wish I had gotten this one.

Starscream Oct 6th, 2010 01:51 PM

This ranks as one of my all time favorite games.. And yeah, I totally agree, this game holds up VERY well even today. I still manage to play it every once in a while when I'm looking to waste some time.

I still play Zombies to this day, nothing like taking down a giant baby with fizzy pop and a water gun. I also hate that even when you killed the evil dolls, sometimes they would turn into little headless, flaming dolls straight from the bowels of Hell.

I like the SNES version better. This is a great game. Also check out the sequel, Ghoul Patrol.

I just ordered Ghoul Patrol last week. Excellent review, Zomboid!
Though I've already played it this year, I believe I'll have to give it another play through now.

Since no one else has, I'd like to point out that both ZAMN and Ghoul Patrol are on the Wii Virtual Console.

Great review Zomboid! I love this game and still pop it in from time to time.

It's a great game, but the SNES version is far superior.

A Bad Enough Dude Oct 7th, 2010 02:15 PM

I work at a video game store and I actually got my job because of this game; when, in my interview, I was asked what my biggest video game achievement was, I told my then-to-be boss that I once beat Zombies Ate My Neighbors from start to finish all by myself without using passwords. He hired me on the spot.

"Far superior"? Meh. Parts of it are better, but I definitely wouldn't say it's hugely different. I prefer the little side thing on the Genesis version. Saying that just kinda makes you look like one of those pretentious fops that talk about how they liked something BEFORE everyone else did.

I never played the Genesis version, so I don't know if there's much difference, but the SNES version is one of my favorite games ever. No other game feels as much like a loving tribute to B-movies as this one. Shame the sequal wasn't anywhere near as good.

Looks like Toejam and Earl.

Zomboid Oct 9th, 2010 05:18 AM

Bill? You...haven't played this? Go play it. Come back. Be happy.

10,000 Volt Ghost Oct 9th, 2010 11:04 AM

It always looked like fun but I never played it. None of my friends had a copy either to trade with.

Paul Oct 9th, 2010 07:05 PM

Best video game music ever?

Snake_Storm Oct 15th, 2010 08:19 PM

A Classic, but too long for my skills. i start fading around the first pyramid level. Stanley Decker was quite frightening when i was a kid.

Gato Oct 24th, 2010 09:17 PM

My mom bought this game for my brother and me, because we wanted Mortal Kombat and she didn't approve of all the bloodshed. [Thus, it was a rental/pizza place game only.] I am forever grateful to have been introduced to this awesome title. It's still in my SNES collection today.
