* AntiFrustrationFeatures: In 4, a quick puff of blue/orange flame bursts from each enemy and blackens them the instant they're killed, so even if a zombie is still standing while it goes through its death flops, the player knows to stop wasting time shooting at it and immediately start targeting the next threat. Considering the sheer number of simultaneous enemies this installment throws at you, it's easy to see why this feature is extremely helpful.

* DullSurprise: The voice acting of the earlier HoTD installments ranges from bad to abysmal; in ''II'' the heroes don't sound the least bit fazed by the fact that they're literally standing in the middle of a citywide zombie outbreak; James in particular dishes out some of the most jarring and out-of-context lines in the game.
