They probably didn't play it, and if they did they were probably disappointed it wasn't blops2. :/ Another GoTY with not even a nomination, bah.
They have played it, and reviewed it with quite a low score.
Ah yeh, I went and had a look and in the first paragraph of their review...
"your ability to run is limited, and the zombies can easily keep pace with your character at walking speed. Attempting to charge past the horde can lead to receiving some painful glancing hits or getting surrounded by the undead."
"Firearms are faster and deadlier, but are not as readily available as the cricket bat. A shortage of weapons is not uncommon for the survival horror genre, but ZombiU’s emphasis on fighting makes this scarcity sting. New weapons and ammo are uncommon, and can be lost if your character dies and you cannot recover his or her backpack after respawning."
That last part is just a flat out lie.
"The Wii U gamepad functionality doesn't contribute much to the game. "
What? The map/radar and inventory managment are a genius idea and I hope other games follow this formula, I don't understand how they could say that at all.
Basically the review reinforces my belief that they think the likes of Blops2, Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead1/2 are survival horror games. Which they aren't. They're action games with zombies.
