In most games, picking a lock involves a superficial skill check or, at most, a time-wasting mini-game. ZombiU doesn't quite side-step this issue, but it does offer a neat take on it by moving the lockpicking activity down to the tablet screen and turning the TV into a rear view mirror of sorts.

As you align the lock mechanisms on the controller, zombies continue to approach from the rear (if there are any in the immediate area), turning what would otherwise be a trivial time-waster into a tension-filled hurdle.
