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.
Until then, if you're playing Generation Zero in a single player or with other people, you're in for a treat. You're going to experience something unique, and that in itself is valuable.
The enemies in Generation Zero remind me of all those Boston Dynamics videos. They aren't sleek or streamlined, they're chunky and industrial.
On the whole I enjoyed my Swedish adventure with Generation Zero, as this kind of shooter that involves stealth and strategy over gung-ho firepower is more my kind of thing.
At the end of the day, I will gladly call ‘Generation Zero’ a good game. It brings new elements and ideas together in a unique setting that hasn’t been seen before. However, the game’s point of difference is also its biggest downfall due to a lack of consistency across all elements of gameplay.
Generation Zero is a hardcore multiplayer game that needs you and your partners to have tactics in battles and even with team-work, it is still a difficult game and makes you a challenging co-op experience. If you trying to play Generation Zero solo, you made a big mistake, because after a few hours and appearing bigger robots, it would be almost impossible to proceed further in solo, because of unbalanced difficulty level. Generation Zero has a nice concept of a robotic crisis in an 80's sci-fi sweden and tells you a nice story in a beautiful world. beside these good aspects, the game has also some big issues like awful inventory managemnt, technical problems, some repetative activities and unbalance difficulty level in solo. In the end i must say that if you are looking for a hardcore team-work based open world co op shooter, Generation Zero is a good choice to play, but remember to play it "only" in co op.

Generation Zero is a game propelled by its ability to be played with a group of friends. While its technical systems may be flawed, its world and mechanics are still engaging enough for fun-times-with-mates.
Menacing robots, a gorgeous world, and an intriguing premise, but ultimately too minimalist for its own good.
This isn't Call of Duty in the land of Swedish meatballs, it's Boston Dynamics in an IKEA-effect hunting sim. Come for the difficult robot fights, stay for the Arctic Circle sunsets. The technical issues will make you rage quit one day and then bring you back the next.
I'd recommend Generation Zero to those who have a steady group of friends to play with. If not, stay away until the game goes on sale or a major patch releases that makes the single player option more manageable. I like you, Generation Zero. I just wanted better.
