  1. The online ability to spread an infection to another player is so innovative that this game gets my top award, even if it's not perfect in other areas.
  2. There’s a whole heaping ton of unlockables, a really awesome wifi multiplayer feature, including Infect the World mode (where you infect players you beat who infect other players you beat, and so on), and the game is even nice enough to unlock all of the cutscenes and audio clips.
  3. You’ll get all the thrills of those other zombie killing games without the stupid puzzles, annoying characters and confusing plot elements, the multiplayer is innovative and addictive and hell, this is the only legal way to spread an infection that won’t get you quarantined or run out of town or a rail.

    I finished this game in like 2 days. It does not mean that it is short, it means that it is addicting. Upgrades could have been a bit more varied. The gameplay itself is a blast off! Full Review »

    This game whould have gotten a higher score if I wasn't forced to listen to Nu-metal crap like slipknot until I got a chance to turn all that audio garbage off. At least you can turn it off, but its still one of the worst soundtracks of all in a game, I would have perfered a half-assed midi soundtrack over this. Full Review »
