Zombie Attack 2 is the Xbox Live Deal of the Week, still rather boring though

If you ask little old me, last week’s Xbox Live sale game was a bit of a dud. This week’s deal game isn’t much better. Zombie Attack! 2 is on sale for $1.99, down from $2.99.

Zombie Attack! 2 is a tower defense game in which players actually control a human survivor who runs around and builds the towers. A fine idea in theory, but the execution leaves much to be desired. A few criticisms from our review: Clunky controls, a complete lack of music, a bug that can make sound effects refuse to play, help screens that clearly refer to the iPhone version’s tilt controls (absent here)… It’s a zombie-filled mess.

Worse, the crux of the game involves completing 10 Challenge levels, which take 45 minutes to an hour each and are just super boring. Seriously, there are much better tower defense games on Xbox Live, including Plants vs. Zombies and geoDefense. One of the two even has zombies

Zombie Attack! 2 is on sale for one week only. If you insist on picking up this rotting corpse of a game, you’ll find it here (Zune link) on the Marketplace.

Pocket God is a great game. It may not be for you but my kids absolutely love it. There are a lots of little mini-games and challenges. It's not a game I play but it is something I think kids really like. Now if only there was a way to keep them from hitting the search button in the middle of the game. Those buttons are super-sensitive.

Yeah, I know a lot of people are into it. I'm just a little critical of the WP7 port as it's way behind the iPhone version in many ways (and rather buggy). Definitely good for kids though.

We are seeing the lower price on this game now.
