I'm gonna have to say better, mainly because there are different types of zombies, three I believe but I am not too sure since I have read about this and barely just starting the game. Also, the game is more involved besides just surviving waves of attacks. I am certain there are gonna be different opinions so you might want to see if you can rent this first but I can definitely tell you that I am enjoying it.
What gave you the "impression" that I'm a "run and gun gamer"? That's a pretty baseless, ignorant & brash statement. Or you're simply trolling. That being said, why do you say that "this game is far from that"? Care to elaborate?
