Alien: Isolation Game Review

It’s amazing how much different Aliens is from Alien. Where the former is an action movie with horror elements, the latter is a pure horror film, and in my opinion one of the best ever made. Alien started a franchise, but one that immediately changed genres and seemed to never look back. I love me… Read more »

Game Review: Meridian: New World

Meridian: New World isn’t exactly the type of thing I would normally review here at Bricks of the Dead. It’s a sci-fi real-time strategy game with absolutely no horror elements, and certainly no zombies. So why am I talking about it? Well, if there’s one thing I like to do here, it’s support people who… Read more »

Game Review: The Forest

I’m a big fan of survival games. I’d had to think about how many hours I’ve wasted happily gathering materials and building fancy houses in Minecraft. I’m also a huge fan of survival-horror games. As I’ve mentioned a few times, the original Resident Evil is what got my zombie obsession started. Therefore, any game that… Read more »

Game Review: The Walking Dead: No Going Back

Season Two of Telltale Game’s The Walking Dead has been quite a ride, and its final chapter is no different. Like every episode so far, it’s packed with action and moments of quiet character development. There are fights, there are zombies, characters die, and life in the post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland continues. Spoilers will follow, so… Read more »

Game Review: Surgeon Simulator 2013

Let’s get one thing out of the way now: I realize that this is a pretty strange game to review for Bricks of the Dead. It’s not zombie-related, nor does it have horror, survival, or action themes. Despite this, I think a lot of you, especially the older gamers who logged a lot of hours… Read more »

The Walking Dead Review – Amid the Ruins

Season two of TellTale Games’ The Walking Dead has been moving along at an incredible pace, and has kept things full of surprises. If I would have guessed where the season was going in episode one or two, I would have said the season would be focused on Carver and his camp, and I would… Read more »

Game Review: The Wolf Among Us: Cry Wolf

I can’t recall the last time I’ve been more pleasantly surprised to be so wrong about something as I was with TellTale Games’ The Wolf Among Us. As I said in my review of the first episode of the series, I expected the game to be a gritty werewolf horror story. After all, I didn’t… Read more »

Game Review: State of Decay – Lifeline

The open world zombie survival game State of Decay was one of my favorites when it was released on PC. Since then, the developer has released two downloadable content add-ons, Breakdown, and the recently released Lifeline. Each of these has built on the main game, but Lifeline takes this a step further by giving us… Read more »
