If there was a game that is more fitting for the modern gamer than this one, I’ll eat my own hat. As Closed Area Block Z is a game that takes the current Coronavirus issue and cranks it up to eleven, allowing us to live in a nightmarish, satirical fantasy where the worst has happened, the majority of society has fallen and while the cure is within reach, it’s still so far away. This is a game that combines todays reality with a full blown zombie apocalypse to produce some dramatic and gripping gameplay.
This game plays like other zombie thrillers like The Last of Us, Back 4 Blood, Left 4 Dead, and World War Z. However, has gameplay that is more in line with games like TMNT or Streets of Rage. This is a title that boasts an excellent concept, but is the result as good? We find out in our review of Closed Area Block Z.
A Little Too On The Nose?
Ok, so let’s talk about what the game does well. In terms of visuals, the game runs with a hand-drawn, almost fairytale storybook sort of art style. The gameplay runs smooth in a very arcade sort of fashion and overall, there isn’t much to complain about. However, it seems like that is the case for a very particular reason. This game is chocked full of borrowed and stolen assets.
This is perhaps best showcased by the lead character which is clearly Tifa from Final Fantasy VII. This trend doesn’t end there as the games monsters and scenery all seem eerily familiar as well and while the gameplay is handled fine as is the UI and animation, you can’t help but feel like you are getting nothing new from this game. Except for, of course, the plot. Thankfully, this game does deliver a well written and fleshed out story. Which, while not always paced brilliantly, is gripping for the most part. Players will get a lot of joy out of uncovering the secrets of Block Z and there is a good level of tension as to whether or not the cure will be secured. Plus, there is some raunchy content thrown in for good measure. So if you ever wanted to take Tifa for a spin, in a way, now you can.
Overall, the majority of this score is awarded for the unique and well delivered story. The rest in truth was an admittedly very well done copy and paste job. The developer must be batting away law suits left right and centre here.
However, as the player, you don’t care. At its core, the game is fun and worth trying out, so we insist that you seek this one out and try it for yourself.
