Death Road To Canada allows fans of the zombie genre to live out their ultimate survival fantasies again and again. Technically, there are a limitless amount of scenarios to experience thanks to the compact yet well designed gameplay, but after a while the patterns and outcomes may become a little too predictable for the average player. If you do happen to be a long-time enthusiast of zombies, this may be worth sinking your teeth into.
The wacky narrative escapades in Death Road to Canada are where it excels, but it falls apart when you actually want to progress. The brutal, random nature too often made me feel like I had little agency in my quest, which made it hard to really care about ever making it to Canada reliably. The reward for my death road was the unusual tales I created along the way, not the gameplay.
In Death Road to Canada’s case, death is what happens. You’ll be so busy plotting out who does what, what supplies you need, who goes where, and when to stop, that a sudden random encounter can throw off all your best-laid plans. In this way, DRtC is frustrating at times like all roguelikes, but the fact that the game never feels the same twice is enough to keep you going.
