Wow i am interested too to find some more zombie games too since i am a zombie-themed games fan myself :)

Well for low spec games and mods i would propose the obvious :Resident Evil 1-3

My all-time-classic Carpenter's movie game adoptation of : The Thing(not exactly zombies but mutated alien infested bodies, still you've get the change to shoot/ blow and burn some nasty creatures in a decent graphical environment :)

Have you ever wanted to see some napalms burn zombies or to slash some nasty vietgoncs with a chainsaw?Then Half Life's 1 mod Heart Of Evil and it's re-make HoE-Napalm Edition are what you need :) If you like the good'all HL1 Graphics.You can find both here in moddb.Again not exactly zombies but you get the idea!

A couple of days ago Out Of Hell, an Unreal Tournament 2004 mod came out.Didn't try it yet but it seems awesome!Not sure if it has high specs or not...But is sure has lots of zombies to kill!

Wow i just realised that beyond Resident Evil and L4D i am tottaly unaware of other zombie games... :S

Hope i was of help :P

Survival Crisis Z is quite good.

But I'm not too sure about playing it without a mouse...

I too am interested in low end zombie games since I got a netbook similar to your specs.

I reccomend Half Life modification Paranoia...Good mod but you need graphic card that can support Open GL if you want that all textures are perfect...

The specs are quite high on it. Your rigs gotta have the balls.

Yeah indeed i looked it up(about Out of Hell)So Out of Hell is out of the list :P, since we look low-spec zombie games here.

Yeah,I was dying to play it,but the "Not for Work" rig I'm using for games and mods can't handle it (even with .ini tweaks).Sucks!

I also recommend the They Hunger series for halflife; its awesome.

And if no one has said it yet for halflife: BRAINBREAD!!!!
It's my favorite HL mod.

Damn, so the Unreal tournament mod is off the list =[, the game itself runs ok on low graphics, and small guns turn on, but lags in high conflict =[

@ thanoshltbeginning: ive downloaded they hunger, and its brill! A great mod so far, im not very far into it, but i love the the horror!

Brainbread looks ok, but does it work on the WON version of halflife?

And i have another mod,for halflife 1. Its the alternate kind of zombie game, and it called Half Life Zombie Edition, you actually play through the game as a zombie =D, its quite good, but you dont get as much satisfaction when you kill humans.

The list again then:

Resident Evil 1 - 3
The Thing
Half Life Mods: Heart of Evil
Heart of Evil: Napalm Edition
Paranoia
Brainbread
Half life Zombie edition
Survival Crisis Z

Thanks again everyone =D

Never heard of Brainbread before, looks nice!Though i think it's only multiplayer, but i can be wrong.As for HL-zombie edition i played it when it came out!Lot's of fun, though in this case you play as one of the beloved zombies you normaly slay :)

Brainbread is a coop game so of course you can play it singleplayer.

Brainbread doesn't have a single player exclusive mode that I know of, though, you can play Brainbread as if it did simply by starting your own listen server ( create a game button in the BB in-game main menu, select a map, click the start button and off you go ). All the missions will still work.


I think that Brainbread is like the Battlfield series:You can play singleplayer but it's just like multiplayer with bots.Downloading now though to see of myself.

When you play brainbread its everyone against a bunch of AI zombies and bosses and you do objectives. It is a coop game. Players only become zombies if they become infected. And there is respawn, so the players becoming infected is a nice addition to the game but not that big a part of it..

The battlefield series is nothing like brainbread. Including their singleplayers.

A better comparison would be Left 4 Dead on singleplayer, or The Haunted mod for UT3.

I guess you are right.It looks like a good and fun mod though so whatever it is, it's ok with me :)
