Bath Salt Zombies (XBLIG) Review

It would be hard to write a review about Bath Salt Zombies and NOT compare it to I MAED A GAM3 W1TH ZOMB1ES!!!1 So I'm gonna go right ahead and say it...this game is a hell of a lot like it...BUT BETTER!
There is no doubt that this games predecessor had an AWESOME soundtrack and the gameplay was fun and fast. This game, whilst the song is not quite as catchy, has that and more. Power ups that are available to both you and the zombies, so you have to race them to the 'bath salts' to gain the upper hand.
This game is what it is. A fun twin-stick shooter for up to four players. It doesn't give us anything new or particularly exciting but what's wrong with some good old-fashioned twin-stick fun?
The graphics are good and as I mentioned before the music is pretty good. It doesn't quite have the sticking power that ZOMB1ES!!!1 does but it is pretty catchy.
And this game does provide slightly more. There are the bath salt upgrades and also some 'boss' zombies for you to deal with. As per most of the games of this type it is four player. Something that is quite rare on both the XBLA and XBLIG markets.
This game is only 80MSP like I MAED A GAM3 W1TH ZOMB1ES!!!1 so why not treat yourself and just get both?! These games provide a cheap laugh and a few hours of fun whenever you want.
7/10 BUY IT!
