Zombie Master is a multiplayer Source modification, centred around a zombie-apocalypse, which throws all but one player in the shoes of human survivors. Pitched against a relentless tide of rotting flesh, they must scavenge for weaponry and equipment just to stay alive. But that one player, chosen randomly at the beginning of the round, is not bound by mortal restraints. To speak his name is to invite the wrath of hell - but most call him the 'Zombie Master'. He is nigh omnipotent. His invisible hand controls the legions of undead like puppets on strings; slowly closing the net on the humans while they run to and fro like rats in a maze.
It's new, and it doesn't actaully feel like a retextured hl2, which is what most mods I've played are like. That, and the game itself is fun. Need I say more? I think this actually changed the market, and if you don't believe me, look up the SmartGlass trailer for PvZ Garden Warfare. That's just one example. This is a huge game, and if it were on Steam as a published release, I'd buy it.
Even though this is just a mod running on a REALLY old version of the Source engine. It would make it into my TOP FIVE favorite games. Seriously! I started playing this back in April 2010 and still love it. The ingenious gameplay and inventive features. This mod is certainly worth your time and then some. The fact that the skill of the ZM can drastically effect the difficulty of the match, certainly gives you an experience that keeps you on your toes throughout! 10/10
While it is generally easy for the zombie master to prevail, the sheer hilarity and intensity of this game discourages a harsh zombie master. The real enjoyment in this mod is hearing people shouting through the mic, running around frantically, etc. Haven't played since 2009, not sure if the servers are still populated.
