World War Z
Top Critic Average
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.
It's safe to say that World War Z doesn't shy away from its undeniable likeness to Valve's 10 year old masterpiece. In borrowing many of that game's ideas, from its AI engine to the uncannily similar special zombies, it's actually become a spiritual successor that can scratch that Left 4 Dead itch. World War Z might lack in originality, but this isn't enough to deter from the brainless, fast-paced, cooperative shooter action that you can effortlessly sink hours into and unknowingly get a real soft spot for.
World War Z is a game full of zombie hordes everywhere, a feeling of great burden and a great experience to try with friends, who will have fun for a long time. But, at the same time, the negative points are very huge, from a bad gunplay to the little variety and very short duration. And they weigh a lot on the title...
