DAY OF THE DAFT
Zombies mode is rarely a thematic fit for Call Of Duty, but rarely has the disparity been so stark as here. Dropping up to four players in a B-movie shoot at an ’80s theme park, casting them as nerd, jock, b-boy or bimbo, Zombies In Spaceland is the most brazenly camp ’80s pastiche since Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. It’s always been a silly mode, but revels in it here, from the licensed ’80s soundtrack to the daft array of buffs and modifiers you pick up as you progress. When Sunglasses At Night comes on the radio, a pair of shades spawns on the map, your reduced, monochromatic vision a step on the path to acquiring one of the mode’s wonder weapons. Charmingly stupid.
