Bloody top-down action which is pretty difficult to start with but you'll soon get better at it. Very nice graphics for an Indie title with lots of game modes to play in. Free Play and Bridge Barricade are my favorites. There is an almost endless amount of perks to get (some are step-up perks which build on each-other) and which you'll need if you want to survive more than 5 minutes. It plays and 'feels' a lot like a top-down version of Left 4 Dead. Definitely one of the better Indie games I bought over the last year and Steam forum is constantly buzzing with new ideas, weapons,perks etc.… Full Review »

All the weapon powerups are the same; the starting pistol is just as powerful as the mini-gun, which may actually be slightly inferior to the crowbar. As such, the game lacks any kind of challenge. The use of the word "zombie" is dubious at best; the bad guys use weapons, are not infectious, display the ability to work together in the cutscenes, and don't require head-trauma to die. The enemies could just as easily have been robots, plants, unicorns, or some kind of sapient tumble-weeds, given how fast the flamethrower puts them down. It would be more honest to call this a dirty-people survival game. Speaking of dirty, absolutely everything is brown, the international color-code for mediocrity. Nation Red isn't even close to being as entertaining or slick as Dead-Ops Arcade, the top-down zombie mini-game in COD: Black Ops. I dislike typing that as much as you hate reading it: a game has to be pretty lame to unfavorably compare it to an EA title.… Full Review »

It is the best supported indie game I've seen on the Steam forums!
The game is a top-down zombie shooter and fast-paced play but lots of fun too. I've put a lot of hours into this game and it never gets boring, the constant updates which include 4 player co-op, weapon upgrades, perk upgrades and new achievements, etc. keep the game fresh.… Full Review »
