Game Zone: Zombie Driver HD

About the game

Zombie Driver is basically a car crazed zombie smash game where you fight your way through the streets of a city that has become infested with a zombie outbreak. Your mission is to save the survivors of a chemical accident that turned most of the city’s population into brain crazed monsters. You will drive several different vehicles on your way to completing your missions. There is also a blood race if you get tired of the missions. You earn cash in this mode as you battle other vehicles, while at the same time running down zombies. If that is not enough to get your zombie on, there is also slaughter mode which is similar to survival mode on other titles, where you try to last as long as you can.

System requirements


Wine and steam.


Processor: 1.5 GHz dual core

Memory: 512 MB

Graphics: 120 MB Directx 9.0c compatible or better with pixelshader 3.0

Hard Drive Space: 2 GB

Sound: Directx 9.0c compatible.

These are the minimum requirements for Windows 7/Vista/XP. However, I have always had better luck when these specs are slightly higher, on account of playing through WINE.

Some Gameplay Screenshots

Getting It To Run

Ok, first things first. Head on over and grab Steam. WINE should install it without any problems, as the WINE team has made lots of progress from where they used to be. Once you have Steam up and running, type “zombie driver” in the search bar within Steam to quickly locate it.

After you download it, let it install. You will have to do just a few things to get it running. At least, this is what worked for me. At first, the program would not start, until I manually used the directx.exe here.

Second, open up WINE configurator here, and add d3dx9_36 and dedx9_38 to the libraries. Be sure to set them both to (native, built in).


When you first start the game, you will be given some settings from which to choose. Make sure you turn Bloom:off and Clouds:off to help the stuttering that’s sometimes present. Well, that’s about it, so go hit the streets and kill some zombies.
