An interactive first shooter zombie killing game, which lets players choose from a wide arsenal of combat weapons. The game is also geographically quite nice, on top of being extremely bloody and gory.

Moving on into the territory of more light zombie games here’s Stupid Zombies 2 – a game in which you use a shotgun to take out as many zombies as possible with the least amounts of bullets as you go through the levels. You can play as the crazed green eyed macho man or tank top wearing lady, and with 600 levels to play, you’ll soon find yourself immersed in this cartoonish world where zombies roam free.
