Bunch of heroes is a zombie and alien (both at once? Who thought of this?), multiplayer shooting game that has cartoon like textures in its graphics display and an undercurrent of subtle humor in its execution.
The story revolves around a bunch of misfits sort of heroes as Agent Liu, El Camarada, Captain Smith and Jared Joe, who are up against the heavy alien invasion who have no regards to any kind of mercy to any gender, race or age, and also they have a huge load of zombie army!
The game is bright, colorful and has a retro like music scores, which all seems like really fun and kiddish until few seconds into the game and you are bathing in blood and decapitated body parts, it is really something that makes you feel awkward and great simultaneously.
The game is a four player co-operative over the top camera angle, top down perspective shooter, where you play as one of the four main characters, routing down tons and tons of zombies, which don’t seem to be a big fan of staying dead.
Yes it is absurdly difficult to just plain plow through the army of zombies as they almost instantly rise from their latest graves.
The mission progress of the game runs trough radical and instant objectives that ask you to mainly either guard something or just stay alive for a limited amount of time although it is as we have said before not as easy as it sounds.
The enemies do get to become a huge pain in the butt, but, but you have a whole shit load of weapons to assist you into making it easy to send those undead army into an eternal rest, whether they like it or not.
You start from one regular gun with unlimited clip but soon you can hit the army supply boxes and take whatever it holds in, anything from flamethrower to grenade launcher or saw blade flingers (!).
The only minus part about this game seemed to be though the lack of information presented along with every objective that made it kinda extra hard work to figure out exactly what and how to do the objectives.
And yes, there is also this super power that each team member has that is super cool to do and does a heavy damage around the field.
The controls are easy, there are no major bugs in the game, the humor that is shown in the game is top notch and the overall enjoyment factor is ever present.

It’s a pure and sure rail shooter game, it is cleverly presented, its greatly finished to near perfection, the zombie and alien scenarios are great together, the cartoon themed dark situations ad up to its appeal and overall a fun game to go with whenever you feel like to try a shooter.
