PlayStation Store description: Lock and load through the history of time as a tough-as-nails commando named Barry Steakfries, who is looking for nothing more than to shoot zombies and make it back for a hearty dinner. The evil Professor Brains has sent hordes of undead to the furthest reaches of time to destroy mankind, but Steakfries wont be taking that lying down. He'll tak it with a gun and witty remarks. Shoot up ninjas, mummies, caveman and all manner historical undead zombies! Massive bosses and a huge variety of weapons and explosives! Bonus Survival mode to take your zombie-blasting skills to the next level!

Gameplay: Age of Zombies is a mini game for the PSP and the PS3. If you have played Burn Zombie Burn, then you kinda know the style on which this game is going. You are a guy named Barry Steakfries, you try to stop a guy named Professor Brains but he gets away in a time portal. So Steaffries goes through time to kill Professor Brains. Since Professor Brains sent out his zombies and used his zombomb, every time you go through has zombies and some lucky humans that did not get infected.

Controls are simple, use the analog to move. , , , are to shoot to your directions. R is for if you want shoot without the other buttons and use the analog as the direction. L is for you secondary weapons. Controls are a plus for this game. You cant complain about the controls while playing it on the PSP.

There are 5 levels in this game. Prehistoric, The 1930's, Ancient Egypt, Feudal Japan, and the last level The Future. Each level corresponds to the theme. Like Prehistoric has caveman and a T-Rex as a boss. Same is with Steakfries lines, he would usually say something very cheesy at the end of the level. Some of these are funny, but it kinda feels like Sergeant Cortez line in TimeSplitters: Future Perfect "Lets Split!". It was a pun off the name of the game. Steakfries does make some references though. Like in the Feudal Japan level, he references Samurai Champloo as "Samurai Shampoo". It was vary unexpected for the developers to reference this.

Last Note: In the end, this game is good but falls short at how long the game is. I beat in about 45 mins. Yes you do have the Survival Mode, but whats the fun if you don't get to have your scores online. So basically its a short pick up and play game. It's not bad, its just very short. Hence the game that it is, "mini". Worth $5? Yes, in my opinion. Just try this game. Also, there is a cool plot twist in the end of the game.
