Good news, everyone!  Emboldened by recent victories in Left 4 Dead, Dead Rising, The Last Guy, and Call of Duty: World at War, video game zombies are planning an attack on the PSN in DoubleSix’s Burn Zombie Burn, a top-down shooter with an emphasis on high scores and comic mayhem rather than survival horror.

Burn Zombie Burn‘s defining mechanic: Setting the undead on fire puts them into a frenzy, but it’s the only way to get a score multiplier.  It sounds like a reasonably compelling mechanic, much like Billy Bob Thornton’s mechanic in U-Turn.  But will it be enough to justify yet another trip into zombie-infested alleyways?

Burn Zombie Burn hits the PSN in early 2009.
