Sounds a lot like those movie trailers with Brad Pitt that I keep seeing on TV. I’m a huge fan of The Walking Dead and will definitely be going to check out the World War Z movie on its opening weekend. This isn’t my kind of game, just because I’m terrible at these sort of fast-paced shooter games, but I imagine it will be a popular App Store title.
It looks like the game is very resource intensive – here’s some of the advisory text on this from its App Store page:
NOTE: HIGH DEFINITION GRAPHICS AND ADVANCED FEATURES ONLY SUPPORTED ON iPad2, Latest iPad, iPhone4S, iPhone5, iPod 5th Generation!
NOTE: World War Z is a graphically rich game with advanced features. To OPTIMIZE your playing experience, you may want to turn off other apps before playing.
And here’s an App Store link for World War Z; it’s priced at $4.99 and is a universal app designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
