    The easiest way I found to finish this game was to gather all the weapons you can in the first wave, but don't use them.
    Instead of that you can mess around meleeing everithing you see in the first wave, and when it is over, run to the stairs al the back and jump to a little platform that is in there.
    Then just wait (you can let your controller in the floor or whatever), since the fire zombies will explode and kill the other ones that gather around them, making the job instead of you.
    You can also shoot the fire zombies in the head so they will explode earlier if you see it better.
    The video shows you the place.
    Have fun :)

    JacksSmirkRevngWorked perfectly. I didn't see it mentioned but there are 6 waves to finish, so once you don't see anymore flaming zombies or exploding zombies, you can run around and hack/shoot the rest.

    To get this achievement you must unlock a crib (can be done in first crib), once you are in your crib go to the T.V. and hit Y. This will bring you onto a screen asing you what you want to do, just press RT and and click A on zombie uprising.

    This game is easy if you play it properly, but if not it can be a pain. To start off with turn around and run along the side of the building as there will be food and ammo you will need to help you along the way. Once you have gatherd everything avoid the zombies and walk across the square. You should see a set of stairs, walk up them still avoiding the zombies. once your at the top go to your right and walk along the balcony, on the floor there should be a minigun save this for later.

    Now just use the melle attacks on all the normal zombies until you get to wave two, on this wave there will be tall zombies and fast zombies. The tall zombies are stronger than any other zombie so don't expect them to go down in one hit, as far as the fast zombies go there the same as normal zombies.

    Now once you get to wave three you will have to watch out for the flame zombie's as these will burn you and this will take alot of damge. just head shot these and stay away from them. now that you have the basics down just rinse and repeat and should get the achievemen't.

    When you start the game run around and collect as many of the weapons as you can. The 1st and 2nd wave and easily be dealt with just using melee weapons. When you get to the 3rd wave you need to alter strategy. There are 2 safe places, the fountain where you start from (the water is deadly but the statue in it is safe to stand on) and by the stairs the zombies come down is a dried up water feature. Jump onto either of these and you are safe. Now you have the choice of headshotting the zombies or running around with the flaming zombies following you and setting the other on fire. Watch out for the smaller, faster zombies as they explode when you get close.

    Ignore the survivors and collect the ammo, weapons and food that the zombies drop every so often
