One of my favorite things to do when I see my brother is to play a game together. We usually have a co-op game that we only play when we’re together. This gives us something to look forward to and keeps the game fresh for the both of us. Today I would like to share with you a title from one of our more recent co-op sessions.
Death Road to Canada: They Can’t Be Stopped
My brother adores this game and I understand why. Death Road is the closest thing we will ever get to having a “Zombies Ate my Neighbors” styled game. The idea of roaming place to place in order to collect supplies and weapons while working towards an objective is fun. The road side events are often humorous and well thought out, further complemented by the very wide cast of characters you can obtain. Some the characters even have cool special weapons with unique properties like the Valkyrie and her hammer.
As for myself I enjoy the game for the same reasons, though I feel the RNG could be toned down a bit. To me Death Road is everything I like about zombie games and film, wrapped up into one convenient package.
Now I chose this song because this is the most frightening track in the game. This song plays when a stage turns from day to night, making the hoard of zombies more numerous and aggressive. From there it’s a race against time to finish up your looting and get going. Do you stay longer for the loot and risk the hoard, or do you play it safe and cut your losses. Sometimes you simply need resources and leaving some behind is not an option for that run. The feeling of desperation and urgency is only elevated by the music and I love it. If you’re looking for a game this Halloween season that encapsulates some of the best elements of a good zombie film/game I strongly recommend giving Death Road to Canada a try.
