  1. Zombie Apocalypse could have been amazing, however a few too many oversights leave it flailing in tedium and monotony.
  2. 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.
  3. Online and offline multiplayer gives Zombie Apocalypse a little extra pulse, but not enough to invigorate the burden of repetition.
  4. 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.
  5. 33
    Worse than simply being tedious, though, is how jaw-grindingly frustrating Zombie Apocalypse becomes.

    Starts off nice and fun but you burn through it very fast and then gets old very quickly. Would say it's a "Rent It" if it wasn't a downloadabel title. Full Review »

    It starts out like it is going to be fun but this game is one of the most tedious, repetitive, annoying games I have ever played. Only 5 or 6 areas. No big difference between the 4 players you get to choose from. Just really really annoying and tedious. Especially past level 7. It isn't even fun! The only reason I even went through this hell hole of a game was to get the achievement at the end. The 7 days of hell was The regular game!! Full Review »

    I think the guys form Left 4 Dead got their dark side, Zombie Apocalypse like Geometry Wars only with blood, humor and well , cool entertainment. For the price , is worth checking it. Full Review »
