Zombies ate my neighbors/ Ghoul Patrol

 

Back in the ’90s or as I like to refer to it as the 16bit era a very fun and challenging game centered around zombies, aliens, man-eating plants, werewolves, killer dolls, chainsaw maniacs, and giant toddlers, and it’s up to Zeke and Julie to save their neighbors. The good thing is that you don’t have to own a SNES and the cartridge or an emulator to enjoy this fun and challenging thriller, because it’s now available on Playstation, Xbox, and switch in an awesome two-pack with special features and a buttload of nostalgia.

 

 

 

Pro:

  • Price aside I love that I get to play with my best friend and relive old childhood memories, about how tough this game was as a kid and still facing those same challenges.
  • With over 70 levels each unique filled with an assortment of enemies each with their specific weaknesses, the replay value on this game is extremely high.
  • Last but not least the nostalgia, I remembering renting these games from the video store on a Friday night and inviting my friends over to play and see how far we can get. Anybody who played these games growing up knows what I’m talking about and being able to relive these memories is priceless.

 

Con:

  • Even though two-player couch co-op is fun it would have been great to see some online play so you can connect with friends from afar or like-minded individuals reliving childhood memories. However, this is more of a nitpick than a gripe.

 

Rating: 9.5 out of 10.0

 

 

Conclusion:

As I stated before, you can’t put a price on childhood memories, sit down with your little ones, and create some new ones. Sure there is no online co-op and that’s why I had to dock it half a point but you know what that can change, a patch might come out and give us what we all want. However, if you’re looking for a couple of games that have high replay value and that you can bust out at a party and have an awesome time then look no further than these two gems.
