  • Summary: [Playstation Network] As the zombie infection spreads uncontrollably and the undead outnumber humans, a small band of heavily equipped gunslingers set out to destroy as many zombies as they can and try to save any of the remaining survivors in Zombie Apocalypse. Up to four players can try and stop the zombie apocalypse with an arsenal of deadly weapons, such as an assault rifle, flame thrower, or grenade launcher, and when ammo is low a chainsaw will be your last line of defense against becoming one of the undead. This action packed, arcade-style shooter will test your dual analog stick shooting skills and ability to survive 55 days of relentless zombie attacks. Multiplayer action: Spill zombie guts side-by-side with up to four players in online or local multiplayer. Devastating weapons: Burn, saw, and dismember the undead with ten devastating weapons. Fatal hazards: Butcher the walking dead using jet turbines, wood chippers, and other fatal hazards. Survival strategy: Survive over 50 stages of brutal carnage in seven brain-splattering locations. Bonus game modes: Re-live the apocalypse with seven challenging unlockable game modes. [Konami] Expand

    A very basic shooter, but it’s really fun. 55 levels full of zombies and the main thing to do is shoot them all. Gameplay is cool, but on long term repetitive.
  2. This undead-themed dual-stick shooter is good, dumb, retro fun.
  3. Keeps things simple. [Jan 2010, p.95]
  4. Either alone or within a team of four, brain-eating fun will sure be found.
  5. Zombie Apocalypse could have been entertaining and great. In comparison to other zombie games the developers deliver a game in which you will kill more zombies than ever for less money. It's a shame Zombie Apocalypse gets repetitive very soon though, and gives you the idea you're just running in circles. The multiplayer make up for it a little, but we can't call it more than a mediocre game.
  6. Unless you have never played a twin stick shooter before, or never played a zombie game, I can't imagine you would have any reason to play through Zombie Apocalypse, unless you have 3 friends online and you are really, really bored.
  7. It’s easy to compare Zombie Apocalypse to Burn Zombie Burn, but unfortunately the game doesn’t share its witty charm or long-term appeal.

    Can be a little repetitive, but the developers do a good job changing up game modes and strength of monsters. This is a great co-op game one thing that is overlooked.Replay value to me is great who doesn't want to go kill some zombies right before bed? I think a mid 7 or low 8 is fair for this game! Expand

    Weak, repetitive and boring. You can spend hours on end riveted in Burn Zombie Burn or you can take all the fun, personality, strategy and replayability out of that game, and be left with Zombie Apocalypse.

    I will say the graphics and environments aren't terrible, but it really is just plain boring after 15 minutes... even for a trophy whore like myself, this is just too poor of a game to grind through.
