When reviewing games is part of your job, you frequently experience bouts of deja vu.
As I Am Vegend's zombies shuffled across the screen, right to left, and I mowed them down with pea shooters, sunflower machine guns, and explosive mines.
And I couldn't shake the feeling that I'd seen this all before.
I Am Vegend is a mash-up of classic tower defence strategy with intense, arcade shooter-style action.
It's also more than a little inspired by the Pocket Gamer Gold Award-winning Plants vs Zombies.
Fast, fun, but ultimately familiar, I Am Vegend feels like a plate of tasty but lukewarm leftovers
