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.

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.

Audience Reviews

4 / 10.0
I bought this game to play with friends who have been enjoying the game on xbox. Given that my PC runs DOOM and Just cause 3 ect I thought that I'd be able to run this without any problems. Ive found that the game is very intensive for not much performance. it maxed out my cpu on the main menu, despite being higher than the recomended requirements, and suffered large frame
Admittedly I've only played through the first 2 campaigns so far, so take what I have to say with a grain of salt. That having been said at THIS POINT in the games development, I DO NOT understand all the hate it's been getting. I have never had an objective glitch out. The worst bug I've seen was getting stuck in a cosmetic menu prior to loading into a game. I've played
I think World War Z is an epic comeback game of a solo or co-op zombie shooting game since Valves Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. Liking the story of each characters and the task to do which makes it more fun and exciting to play with..
