Provided all you want is the chance to shoot decomposing Nazis in the face hundreds of times over, you can't really fault Zombie Army Trilogy for delivering on the crude grindhouse pleasures implicit in its title. It's also hard not to wish the game didn't do more to deviate from its amusing but repetitive blood-soaked trajectory.

Zombie Army Trilogy is quite possibly one of the most entertaining video games ever. It's true value lies especially within its coop ability, however.

Zombie Army Trilogy is a simple game that is a blast to play, at least online with friends. Outside of Evolve, this is the only other game I can think of that makes you play as a team to help complete sections of the game. And blowing a zombies head off from a long distance is just satisfying. The one thing I didn't really care for was the way this game was set up. Horde mode with objectives tends to get boring after a couple of hours. But this also makes it a game that can be played at your own pace. Plus with three games that have five chapters each for only $50, the game is a steal.

Zombie Army Trilogy won't be winning any rewards for innovation any time soon. It will most likely not get any best game of the year awards either. Doesn't stop it from being really fun to play, though. Just a lot of mindless zombie killing fun, which is really all you should have be looking for with this title to begin with.

So in the end, is the game worth picking up? If you're new to the genre or just looking for some mindless zombie killing fun, the game has plenty in store for you. While it doesn't necessarily stand out from the rest of the games in the genre, it's still a decent title with solid and enjoyable gameplay. If you liked the game, then you're in for a treat since Zombie Army Trilogy comes packaged with the previous games of the series and the first game even comes remastered.

A new campaign for those looking for a bit more longevity out of the series, with some nice new features. However, for those looking for something largely different out of the series, you might be best looking elsewhere.

Love zombies, hate Nazis? Zombie Army Trilogy is an impressive three game package that needs to be played co-operatively to get the most out of it. It can be a bit of a slog, but good enemy variety and level variety keeps it challenging and fun.

Its level design may be repetitious, especially on solo play, and it may not innovate on the genre or the Sniper Elite franchise, but if you're looking for some competitive co-op fun that prioritises non-stop action over narrative, Zombie Army Trilogy hits the mark, and then some.

If you can get past the cheap-feeling engine and have three buddies on hand, you'll have a lot of fun with Zombie Army Elite. It's a blast to overcome particularly tough sections with a team, and hitting an on-point shot from 50 feet away can provide quite the rush. While the package has a lot of problems that prevent it from justifying that $50 price tag, I enjoyed my time playing the entire campaign online.

Co-op is always a hoot and Zombie Army Trilogy proves that your game doesn't have to be a massive triple AAA, technically breathtaking piece of pseudo art to be a success. Sure it is rough around the edges, although less than it used to be on the PC and of course the gameplay along with the environments will get a little tiring after a while, but Rebellion seem to get this and have priced accordingly. For at most, £24.99 (UK RRP), you are getting Nazi zombies, slow mo sniping, bone-breaking impact close ups, robust four-player co-op, some Horde modes and to top it all off you get to shoot Hitler in the nads. No masterpiece then, but perfect Friday night entertainment.

Zombie Army Trilogy knows what it wants to be, a straightforward zombie sniping game that lacks any real pretensions or delusions of grandeur. Parts of the trilogy are showing their age and difficulty spikes can sap away the fun, but steel yourself for a challenge, get some mates together and there's plenty to like about it.

While there's still some mindless, if slightly repetitive, fun to be had for the solo participant, Zombie Army Trilogy really shines as a multiplayer experience and does a great job of filling the 'Left 4 Dead'-shaped hole on the current consoles. It's not doing anything particularly innovative, yet the satisfying shooting mechanic, coupled with the ever grisly X-ray killcam makes it a great game to revisit when not in the mood for something more cerebral.

It's hard to knock a game that delivers on what it set out to do, and that's exactly what Zombie Army Trilogy does very well. It won't appeal to everyone's tastes, but for those of you that enjoy the frantic co-op action that games of this nature provide, you'll find that Zombie Army Trilogy is a competent shooter, that will keep you entertained for hours of zombie killing fun.

If you're looking for a good cooperative multiplayer experience and love the zombie aspect of Call of Duty, you can't go wrong with Sniper Elite's younger brother.

Zombie Army Trilogy isn't an especially well made game. It's a bit buggy and cheap and it's decidedly dumb. But it's also capable of being really fun. Get online with a few friends, get the beers in, and laugh together as you massacre Hitler's undead army, one squishy head at a time.

While there's good fun to be had in co-op mode, and players who like their shooters chock full of zombies won't be disappointed, this feels likes a somewhat limited package on the whole.

Zombie Army Trilogy is an enjoyable co-operative shooter that's a lot of fun when played with others. Unfortunately, it runs out of steam all too quickly, giving you a severe dose of déjà-vu once you realise that you're playing very similar encounters, with only the backdrop changing. As a result, you'll have had enough of shooting zombies in the noggin well before you reach the end of its campaign, and while you'll look back fondly on the early hours that you spent with this title, you'll wonder if it was really worth bringing it back from the dead on the PS4.

Thankfully for those who really enjoy the visceral x-ray angles from perfect sniping shots, this title supports that in all of its over-the-top gory glory. Zombie Army Trilogy is a culmination of things that are all done well, but not great. There are bugs in the animation and world, the game difficulty is uneven and it feels like a second rate action/horror movie from the 80's. Of course, that vibe can also work for a game, and for the most part it does here, even if I think the team could have done even more with that aesthetic.

Zombie Army Trilogy is familiar and fun for a short spell. The third game is a good deal better than the first two but for the most part, it's a ho-hum action blast-fest that doesn't have enough "oomph" behind it. The low production values are a definite problem, as is the uninspired and outdated level design and hugely repetitive gameplay.

If a real zombie apocalypse was as dull as Zombie Army Trilogy, then Hitler would have won the war through boredom alone. Play the regular Sniper Elite games for long range action or revisit Black Ops 2 for zombies.

There's no doubt that some will be hooked and will love it – it's certainly therapeutic fare – but with the issues it contains, there's a much greater chance that you'll feel the opposite way.

This is certainly not Rebellion Developments' best effort as they have proven in the past that they can release a quality product. Zombie Army Trilogy may only be a patch or two away from being a decent co-op affair, but in its current state it is a mess of a game. With the increasingly busy release schedule, there is no shortage of high quality games tugging away at your wallet — Zombie Army Trilogy is not one of these.

Zombie Army Trilogy feels exactly like what you think it is – a collection of DLC packages. With a bare-bones frame propping it up, the game is an emaciated experience with an overly ambitious price tag attempting to tie it all together.
