7.2 / 10.0

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.

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

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

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.
