I found the two player game a bit boring. No player was getting killed.

Reducing the number of bullets and life available changes the game. Here is the algorithm we used when placing map tiles:

1. Place zombies as normal
2. Place half the number of bullets rounded down
3. Place half the number of life tokens rounded down
4. Unless number is one or rounded number is less than one

Now the random order of the card draw now makes things much more interesting and the outcome of the race for the helipad at the end when it starts is much less predictable.

We also used one non rule based modification. The biggest time chunk where nothing actually happens is looking at cards and deciding which to play, then keep/discard. To eliminate this we put cards in hand face up in a position where they could not be seen by another player.

I had fun with two player, but I'm definitely going to try it your way. Good idea.
