Vermintide is a brilliant twist on the Left 4 Dead formula, and deserves much of the same praise heaped on Valve.

A thrilling twist on Left 4 Dead's co-operative action, but minor balancing issues can make it hard to warm to at first.

The use of different classes and the evocation of the Warhammer setting is enough to make Vermintide a competent twist on the Left 4 Dead formula, but it doesn't execute them well enough to live up to its inspiration. Even at its best, Vermintide's co-op horde mode lacks a sense of suspense, and its addictive loot chase can't fully replace that. As I'm sure any Skaven would tell you, there are better things than being a rat in a maze.

As blatant a clone as you've ever seen, but this is almost as good as the real Left 4 Dead and does have a few extra ideas of its own.

As blatant a clone as you've ever seen, but while the PC version was a novel take on Left 4 Dead, the severe price hike on consoles ruins the fun.

Left 4 Dead's frantic four-player co-op gets medieval with melee combat, mutant rats, and mixed results.

I just wished that Fatshark had tried to be as original in the gameplay as they have in the visual direction. At times, it just felt like I was playing a mod, and depending on how you look at it that's either the biggest compliment or the absolute worst thing I could say about Vermintide.

Niggling flaws aside, Vermintide is easily one of the most surprising games to launch this year. Although there's a clear lack of originality, Fatshark has done a brilliant job in throwing together a patchwork of borrowed designs with its own previous work on games like War of the Roses. It's got the makings of a sleeper hit and hopefully, with a few more refinements, can grow into the next multiplayer must-have.

A nice conversion that retains the best features of the original PC version while adding new content, and without being too technically downgraded.

Vermintide is an under-appreciated gem with loads of replayability and heaps of atmosphere.
