  1. The main challenge is actually having the will to keep playing until the end. The downloadable gaming space is already saturated with twin-stick shooters, and while Zombie Apocalypse tries to stir up the formula by adding the already decaying - no pun intended - cliché of zombies into the pot, it ends up being just another shooter.

    Worse than simply being tedious, though, is how jaw-grindingly frustrating Zombie Apocalypse becomes.
  3. Online and offline multiplayer gives Zombie Apocalypse a little extra pulse, but not enough to invigorate the burden of repetition.
  4. 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.
  5. A boring dual-joystick shooter that lacks the speed and intensity that the best games in the genre all share. Throw in a generic zombie theme and you're left with something that feels like it'd be a neat free Left 4 Dead mod. As a standalone commercial product, though, it's lacking at every turn.

    Weak, repetitive and boring. You can spend hours on end riveted in Burn Zombie Burn or you can take all the fun, personality, strategy andWeak, 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.

    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 oneCan 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!
