World War Z
Top Critic Average
World War Z: Aftermath is another lumbering step forward for zombie-kind, even if it doesn't completely satisfy one's appetite for brains.
Bland and mostly harmless, World War Z is another co-op zombie shooter that you could play.
A co-op shooter that's an unashamed throwback to Valve's all-time classic, complete with a few quirks of its own.
World War Z's lack of variety and ambition can't stop a satisfying zombie slashing with a good group of friends.
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
World War Z is unrefined and rough around the edges, but it makes up for this with satisfying co-operative action that fills your screen with hundreds of enemies for you to kill.
World War Z is an OK multiplayer game elevated by hilarious zombie physics
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.
Is Aftermath worth it then? It is if you are a fan World War Z and are looking for more content. The new class is a decent addition and can add a new tactical choice when facing the hordes, while both the episodes of Rome and Kamchatka add a couple more hours of content and more variety for when you're grinding for levels and upgrades. However, the first person mode feels undercooked and the rat swarms just aren't scary compared to the likes of the Bull and the Lurker zombies.
