    Zombie Apocalypse is a great addition to both downloadable services. It is mindless fun that can feel repetitive if you let it.
  2. This action shooter is done well but lacks any long term gameplay value so I have trouble recommending this game as a buy at its current price. If it dropped down to 400 MS points (5 dollars) this would be one of hell of a game to own and something zombie fans could play with their friends.
  3. The co-op multiplayer experience, well-implemented theme, and arcade price means it's a nice bit of valuable fun to pull out when your buddies come calling.

    Mindless fun, best played with mates. [Christmas 2009, p.104]

    Perhaps if Zombie Apocalypse wasn’t so repetitive -- and blatantly so -- it would be easier to recommend as a way to blow off an afternoon with friends. Instead, it just serves as a reminder that there are better zombie-killing multiplayer games out there.

    If you absolutely must have another zombie game, Zombie Apocalypse is far from awful. The most frustrating and disappointing thing about it is that the premise has so much promise - none of which is delivered on here. It's decidedly average.
  7. The lack of variation unfortunately keeps Zombie Apocalypse from being the great game that it could have been. It feels extremely repetitive and doesn’t offer anything that makes you want to replay it again. Otherwise, it isn’t all terrible.
  8. Either alone or within a team of four, brain-eating fun will sure be found.
  9. The game might provide a fun, visceral thrill, at first. But by the end it becomes to mind-numbingly repetitive you may as well go gnaw on some flesh yourself.
  10. 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.
  11. But we couldn’t shake the “I’ve been here already” déjà vu. By the time you hit the halfway mark, you’ll be sick of spinning in circles.

    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 6It 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 »
