Max Brooks' World War Z is one of the best books about zombies ever written, using the subject of a zombie apocalypse not as a chance to stage a few cheap scares, but to rewrite the history of the world.
Nonstop carnage is on the menu in Konami's Zombie Apocalypse, which brings games' undying affinity for the undead to a top-down, multidirectional shooter. Does it also hold the same appeal when it's one - or four - against a thousand?
Konami's given a release date to its top-down undead blast-o-thon Zombie Apocalypse, and it's next week! Xbox Live users get the title Sept. 23, or Thursday. PlayStation Network users will see it Friday, Sept. 24.
