Even talented designers couldn’t have saved Killing Floor. The game is so low-budget that it evokes pity instead of nostalgia. The visuals aren’t bad for an Unreal Engine 2 game, but they are a far cry from modern shooters. Threepenny lighting and jerky animation are the worst horrors you’ll see here.

Oct 8, 2010A very underrated game.This is if not the best then one of the best zombie-shooter games i've ever played.To be more simple.Graphics:Well not anything to say just good graphics.Gameplay:The gameplay is awesome as well,the thing that many will notice first is that there is no crosshair in the game (which makes it more realistic in my opinion) but this is not anything to worry about,you 'll get used to it pretty fast.Another part that i really liked is that there are some huge maps in the game in which you can go ANYWHERE and i mean anywhere you want.There are no restrictions to that like "Kill those zombies then move on to that area and when you finish you gotta go there bla bla bla",you can just go anywhere in the map and take cover in buildings.Another thing i liked is that you don't have to nessecary be with your team 100% of the time you play in a map,you can go solo as well but only if you 're a "pro" (or however you want to say it).You also have money which you can buy a lot of different weapons (from an axe to a flamethrower) from shops which can be found after you finish killing a wave of zombies.These are some of the things i like about this game,and for those who are thinking about the multiplayer - i can say that it's 2 times more fun.… Full Review »
Dec 19, 2010You know what? I am laughing at the people that compared KF with L4D. I know, L4D has better graphics, but KF is a totally different game! There are no zombies, there are specimens, a lot more weapons in KF than in L4D,L4D is too linear,KF isn't linear at all! I had a lot more fun playing KF than playing L4D(although to some people it gets repetitive), and KF is much more cheaper! And it's one of the best games ever to play with friends!
Overall:KF is a very fun game with fine graphics assuming that it's made using the unreal engine 2.5, a lot of weapons available, a great non-linear game, but sometimes repetitive, very cheap!
8 word summary: A non-linear, underrated game, it's a true bargain.… Full Review »
DanSNov 23, 2009Despite this game having the lowest metacritic score on my games list, it's undoubtedly my most played. The game is simple yet addictive. Killing Floor doesn't hide behind shiny graphics or a carefully crafted backstory to get you "entertained", it throws you in a map with guns, friends, and a horde of mutants and says "enjoy". If you're more concerned with how well wet rocks reflect light than blasting that monster gnawing on your arm, then the game isn't for you. There's a ton of servers even after you put on plenty of filters, so there's never a worry about not finding a server to play on, the only downfall is that you never know what wave the server is on; joining matches where they're a round from the final boss or already killing it happens way too often. Overall, I give this game a 10/10 simply because the ratio of the hours I've played verses money I spent exceeds 10; in fact, it exceeds 20. eat that L4D.… Full Review »
