    A solid multiplayer offering, gore aplenty, a low price point, and general undead silliness make Zombie Apocalypse a fun diversion.
  2. Quite frankly Zombie Apocalypse isn’t stellar in any of those categories but what it does allow you to do is a get a great deal of entertainment out of some mindless, arcade-style shooting. The amount of amusement that it offers is certainly worth the price of admission.

    Four-player co-op is crazy amounts of fun. [Dec 2009, p.83]
  4. A fun game to play , just not groundbreaking.
  5. With fun gameplay, albeit slightly repetitive, Zombie Apocalypse perfectly sums up this genre as you send them back to the hell verse they crawled out from.

    Laugh-out-loud stuff. [Issue#52, p.104]

    Three words: Robotron with zombies. Mindless fun that is best enjoyed with friends. [Dec 2009]
  8. Its arcadey action, solid visuals and addictive co-op play make it one hell of a slaughter fest for just 800 Microsoft Points (or about $10).
  9. Zombie Apocalypse is nothing special to the zombie genre. You could replace the zombies with any other type of creature and you would still get the same, fun, twin stick shooter experience. Think of it as Smash TV, but with zombies.
  10. This undead-themed dual-stick shooter is good, dumb, retro fun.

    Zombie Apocalypse is a fun little shooter game with a few flaws, but most of those flaws don't seem too glaring when you bear in mind that it's a $10 Xbox Live Arcade title.
  12. A must-buy for anyone who loves shooters and fighting off hordes of the dead with squeamish friends.

    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 »
