    World War Z crashed on us once and there appears to be an issue among some Android players, but by and large, it's an impressively-made shooter and collect-a-thon that manages to avoid the dreaded movie game curse. You'll have to pay $4.99 to download it, and we feel it's worth the money, especially if you're in need of a zombie fix.

    World War Z is a very interesting tie-in, a game that tells a story different from the movie it's based on and delivers a compelling, engaging experience.

    World War Z could dramatically improve its controls, but that irritating flaw doesn’t ruin the entire experience. There is a visceral thrill to mowing down as many zombies as possible, but thankfully the developers bring much more depth to the overall proceedings.

    World War Z is an entertaining film-inspired game, even if its combat system could use some polish.

    It's getting closer to the "perfect shooter formula" on touch devices. It's still got some issues, but it's a great way to keep on enjoying the movie experience.

    For every inspired touch and clever control system World War Z delivers, it serves up a dull search sequence or terrible melee episode to cancel them out. There's a good game in there, but in its current state, this zombie shooter is only half alive.

    Buggier than the virulant masses that besiege you, frustrating and, story-wise, uninspiring, this isn't worth anyone's time or money.
