MOD INFO - Zombie Master Black Edition is a "spin-off" mod based on the original Zombie Master Source Code. - Features: 9 all-new custom weapons - 3 new zombie types - challenging gameplay.
Zombie master black edition is the next game/mod in the series. In this version it includes no zombie's form normal but now has 2 new zombie's and one that only spawn's by hidden spawn. There is a fast zombie that kill's you instantly by touching you there is a wobbler i think it's called that has a little more health but doe's 50 hp instead of instant kill, and that last zombie isent even a zombie it's a blob, for people that havent played this yet wobbler has a blob on it's head just like a head crab but blob's instant kill you, there are 2 way for them to spawn there is a trap spawn orb that spawn's them or you hidden spawn them. 95% of the time you will hidden spawn them. The Gun's in this mod are very diffrent form normal zombie master some need to be right clicked after each shot and some is there strong but you cant reload until your clip in drained. In this mod in fill's more smother gameplay then kinda Skippy zombie master gameplay.In this mod you play as a rebel. There are around i would say 15 map's and most of them it could be all of them are right from zombie master. Overall i give Zombie Master a 10/10 i see nothing wrong with this game, yes it's very hard but this game requires teamwork like zombie master dident reley have on most map's on every map on zombie master black edition require's team work or you wont make. I hope to see Zombie Master 2 come's out soon.
Zombie Master Black Edition itself is a very fun mod to play. As the survivors who are the players playing the game through a FPS perspective must complete objectives and survive their encounter with the Zombie Masters zombies. A single survivor gets a single life each round and if killed cannot play until the next round. This proves both challenging and can be an annoyance and currently zombies can one hit kill you with the exception of the Wobbler who in some cases two hit kills you instead. This can be an annoyance as some Zombie Masters will prefer to just spam zombies at the players even if there are only a few number of survivors starting off making it extremely challenging for the survivors although this can be fended off easily with a good number of skilled players. The survivors have to use teamwork in order to complete their objective or else if put up against even the most inexperienced Zombie Master can fail their objective.
The player playing as the Zombie Master gains a birds eye view of the map in a RTS perspective and must kill off all the survivors and stop them from completing their objective by creating ambushes and trapping the survivors with spawnable zombies. The Zombie Master can also use environmental traps to kill off the survivors. All of these abilities use up resource points which is gathered over time.
This mod as said can be extremely fun to play especially with friends. But as a lot of people believe the Zombie Master zombies are overpowered and should not be a one hit kill (This is going to be changed in version 2.0). I believe they're slightly overpowered but easy to overcome with a good amount of teamwork.
The one thing that lets me down is the lack of servers and people playing. I rarely see that many people playing this mod and i believe it deserves much more publicity. And with the lack of servers none of us can play then the main server is taken down for testing or other stuff.
It is a fun mod with only a few problems.
The current version of this game has a great concept and aim, but it's certainly lacking in terms of balancing.
The new version, on the other hand, is taking the whole idea one step forward, and in the name of realism and survival, will provide some of the most realistic weapon operation and damage that we've seen in a mod (at least for source games). Perhaps they'll consider even getting rid of blobs, or at least making them a lot weaker, for that matter. :/
Either way, I've got high hopes for this mod in the future, and shall assume that the developers have learned from their mistakes from the previous version. Hopefully this will turn the original Zombie Master mod into an experience that is closer to life than any other mod out there. (Minus the zombie part, since...you know, that's near impossible. :P)
