Critic Reviews for World War Z

Bland and mostly harmless, World War Z is another co-op zombie shooter that you could play.

World War Z: Aftermath is another lumbering step forward for zombie-kind, even if it doesn't completely satisfy one's appetite for brains.

World War Z's lack of variety and ambition can't stop a satisfying zombie slashing with a good group of friends.

A co-op shooter that's an unashamed throwback to Valve's all-time classic, complete with a few quirks of its own.

A curate's egg of zombie clichés and surprisingly solid multiplayer, with the movie's undead hordes replicated in impressive fashion.

World War Z hews closely to the core tenants of the genre, but its zombies make the familiar monster feel unique. The story is interesting, but light enough that it knows when to stay out of the way

Is World War Z as good as Left 4 Dead? No. Is it fun despite that? Yes. There's few pleasures in gaming that can compare to swinging a thrumming chainsaw blade through a horde of ravenous undead, and World War Z delivers. And really, it's not like Valve makes games anymore.
