Top Critic Average
A moody shooter undermined by a lack of polish and purpose.
Menacing robots, a gorgeous world, and an intriguing premise, but ultimately too minimalist for its own good.
Generation Zero is a buggy and poorly designed open-world co-op shooter that tragically squanders its distinctive setting.
A barrage of technical issues and poor design brings the promising thrills of Generation Zero's concept to a screeching halt
It all adds up to a game that feels like an excellent first draft. Fans of battle royale games and open-world survival games should feel right at home — that is, until they run up against a mob that’s too big to handle on their own.
There are some genuinely cool moments buried among the slop. If this were an Early Access title, I'd be very content saying to keep an eye on it as it nears release. Considering that this game is being released like this, I will instead warn not to waste any money on this unfinished title..
With the passage of a few hours of game already we will realize that the enormous size of the Generation Zero map does not do justice to the infinitesimal number of playable possibilities.

Generation Zero combines the open world of an RPG with the shooting and looting of a battle royale, to create a rather special, 80s vision of post-apocalyptic sci-fi, where every fight feels like a battle for survival.
It has so much potential, and is close to being an decent game. I want to love it, and maybe one day I could. As it stands, though, this needs a lot more time invested in it.
Generation Zero is a game that has fantastic potential but falls short in so many areas. The Excellent combat and generally great atmosphere is let down by a myriad of bugs, a very limited range of enemies to face off against, boring quests and a world that is just too large and sterile, particularly if played alone. The potential of bug fixes and increased enemy types would make this a fantastic budget purchase, but until that time it's one I would miss unless you know at least two others to co-op with.
