More info on Game: City of the Dead

Boomtown have a preview of the George Romero inspired zombie apocalypse FPS game, City of the Dead:

With the focus set entirely on zombie blasting, City of the Dead awards such things as headshots and limbs being blown away with its points system. Perhaps most interesting is the games physics based skeletal and reaction system. Take a shotgun to a zombies legs and they are likely to be blown clean off.

Rather than staying down, the zombie may therefore attempt to bite you by crawling along the floor towards you. Take out one of its arms and it will damn near attempt to do the very same thing, albeit with limited resources.

The screenshots there look suitably gore-filled for the genre. A good zombie shooter on the PC would be welcome. It also mentions that it will inlcude the sadly rare co-op mode for you to play through. Hopefully that will be included for the PC version as well, too few FPS have that feature.
