    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.

    I gave ZOmbie Apocalipse the medium vote, which here is 5. The idea is great, arcade games are great, the whole concept of a 3d third view shooter about zombies is great. MInd that it is not a full size behind th eshoulders view, you see th ewhole game form above, its kinda old isometric view of the old 16 - bit consoles game, only with very defined anf pleasant graphics.

But after the whole idea and graphic rendering th egame does not deliver the gaming fun it should have been becosu eof the exellent premises. The problems are several: 1 - The game is missing a decent online multiplayer, it would be perfect with ten players, insetad of four, which makes the musltiplayer boring as hell. 2 - The characters must have been designed cool people, divided in five cool males and five cool females, all with a winning attitutes. After all if you have to defeat hordes of zombies you must look like any hero must look, cool and awesome goodloking. Instead we have four characters complete losers, it is impossible to identify with them as heroes who would save the day. The verdict is mainly 5 becosue it must be divided in two parts, 5 for overall game idea and design, and game easy and paerfect arcade controls. 0 is for the multiplayer let down and losers as characters.

    While the game is fairly simplistic and repetitive, it manages to mix up the basic dual-stick arena shooter formula by gradually adding in new enemy types and weapons. 75 percent of the characters is sheer plagiarism (bald black guy, brunette white female, veteran) and the "zombie bait" item is an obvious copy of World at War's own "monkey bomb," from its function to the cheerful While the game is fairly simplistic and repetitive, it manages to mix up the basic dual-stick arena shooter formula by gradually adding in new enemy types and weapons. 75 percent of the characters is sheer plagiarism (bald black guy, brunette white female, veteran) and the "zombie bait" item is an obvious copy of World at War's own "monkey bomb," from its function to the cheerful dialogue it spouts before detonating. However, with a sharp gore engine, a satisfying zombie aesthetic and visual design, and 4 player local or online co-op make for a fun, frantic romp for any zombie fan. Expand

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
