    But it doesn't matter how slick a game like this looks if the action isn't on point. Housemarque has proven in the past it clearly has the chops to make great shooters, but it doesn't feel like that skill was fully brought to bear on this one.

The game gets very interesting when you are aiming for the scores - you really have to avoid dying and getting hit if you are aiming to get the best high score. This also adds tension and survivability. A game for a real gamers! Full Review »

    Intense Zombie Shooter. It definitely stands well on its two feet as far as zombie shooters go. Graphics are great!! Lots of detail in theIntense Zombie Shooter. It definitely stands well on its two feet as far as zombie shooters go. Graphics are great!! Lots of detail in the environments really add to the gameplay and feel of a devoid city. I'm enjoying the progression of levels so far. A couple niggling things like the view being to far away for some may be a problem or the difficulty level the game can bring, but its certainly not impossible by any stretch and every level can easily be gotten through with a little strategy and knowing all your weapons and what each weapon does. Overall, an extremely enjoyable game that I'm having a lot of fun with. Oh yeah and its extremely gory (which is most excellent for a zombie shooter). They did an excellent job with the sound also, especially if you have a surround sound setup (hearing the bones and organs crunching and smooshing under your feet as your walk over the dead bodies is priceless!!!).

This is without a doubt the best downloadable game I've ever played and also one of the best PSN titles to date. with 10 chapters all lasting around 20 minutes each. Plus an awesome leader board where you can see which country in the world has killed the most zombies along with how many people from your country (or a different country) has Dead Nation, and also who's the best player. + There is an Online mode that I can't wait to check out, and I have never experienced such satisfaction as when you mow down a massive horde of zombies with your SMG or decapitate them with the Blade gun, or why not blow em up. Don't listen to the average critics. Especially IGN's. This is a 10/10 no doubt about it. Full Review »
