For players looking for more of a challenge in Minecraft, consider grabbing the CrackedZombie mod, which replaces standard zombies with updated, more aggressive versions that attack players, villagers and even livestock like cows and chickens. They pretty much just kill everything they see. There are a few key differences between standard zombies and the zombies introduced by this mod, the first of which was already mentioned. The greatest difference is probably the fact the new zombies can spawn during the day, and the sun will not harm them. However, they can’t spawn with armor or weapons.
Also, the zombies spawned using the CrackedZombie mod don’t summon other zombies when they hit the player or are hit by the player. Standard zombies can do this, and sometimes while you’re fighting one, one or more will simply poof and appear right on top of you, sometimes getting you killed. This mod manages to makes zombies a little less random while powering them up at the same time, so it’s not like they’re total pushovers or anything. Additionally, this mod allows for manipulation of the weather, as well as spawn rates for other monsters, so there is a bit of customization you don’t normally get.
