I also like using Stamin-up because of the extra speed and the sickle is good for points too.

If your looking for a good player for multiplayer, add me, FightingGI
Yeah, Stamin-Up is good for outrunning zombie groups, but also annoying as some of the monkeys tend to go off to attack that rather than all going to the Revive. I'll check out the sickle next time, thanks!

Game is great but can someone tell me when the game gets really challenging? I have a packapunched thundergun and raygun and those bomb things and I'm on wave 50 and the game has been a breeze. I'm on regular difficulty btw... does the game ever get really challenging around a certain wave?

Yes it runs fine on iphone 4 while zombies are very small numbers. But once you past wave 5, the laggy frame rate and constant stutter really ruin the experince. It's not even 50% as smooth as WaW is. Online is even worst with lag. I don't even play that any more.

Activision wAnts us to believe that the iPhone 4 is just not powerful enough to run this game well. But I find this very hard to believe when games like Sky gamblers, Real Racing 2, Modern Combat 3, and many others have even bigger environments, multiple characters on screen consistently, full retina, and they all still manage to run faboulously on the iPhone 4. So they need to optimize this game a whole lot more.

That's your problem right there, regular difficulty is too easy, you have to be on Veteran mode. The zombies are a lot faster, way more of a challenge.

I hope the devs bring out a patch for the running out of the map bug. Several times using Stamin up. I have accidentally ran out of map. Usually I have been in a good position with all my perks, at a higher round, just being chased by zombies and then get caught out of map.

I'm sure they will patch it eventually.

only reason why it lags on iphone 4 is cuz it has to render and animate 30ish zombies on screen if you allow them to hoard up, theres just too many zombies to render and animate for the A4 but the lag will reduce if you blow their legs off or cut down the hoard numbers

I hate to admit this but the multiplayer works much better on COD WAW zombies. People usually stick around for more than 5 rounds.

At the time, I thought voice chat is going to be awesome for iOS zombies but it hasn't worked that way. Usually you pair up with someone with annoying static, music, or 3 brothers or sisters in the back ground screaming so you can't hear a word. I end up leaving.

I also agree, you can never have more than 2 players with Black ops zombies. Hopefully they can work on this next update.

Note: I've been playing COD WAW zombies lately, the game is still really good. Maps are simpler but in many ways this game with all 4 maps is better than Black ops zombies. Even though I think Black ops is awesome.

Still very cool, to be able to play both zombie games !!
