Zombie ‘Call Of Duty’ Gives “Brains” To George Romero

There are a lot of zombie video games out there. How do you differentiate yourself? You release a kickass, movie-esque viral trailer. Oh, that’s already been done? Well… uh… it’ll work again.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Escalation–Call of the Dead is an add-on that lets you play a zombie-killing game starring Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Michael Rooke and Robert Englund. They released a fun, Grindhouse-style trailer above, complete with retro titles, film burn effect and a voice over that sounds right on the zombie money.

George Romero stars as a zombie boss, which I guess is a nice homage to the genre creator, although… I dunno. It’d be like playing a Star Wars game where a main boss is George Lucas. Hilarious, but anti-climactic, cause it takes you out of the game. Still, there’s the catharsis factor.
