    awesome game when playing with other people and alot of gore and funny moments like blasting knife wielding granny's into a planes engine and it's really hard difficulty when playing later levels but they should improve on making more levels and make the zombie seem more different from eachother and making a plot into it but aprt from that you got a real awesome game it's awesome game when playing with other people and alot of gore and funny moments like blasting knife wielding granny's into a planes engine and it's really hard difficulty when playing later levels but they should improve on making more levels and make the zombie seem more different from eachother and making a plot into it but aprt from that you got a real awesome game it's worth the 800 microsoft points Expand

    Fantastic SmashTV type gameplay with 4-player live or co-op for $10. Simple, but fun twin-stick shooting with lots of gore, chainsaws and ZAMBEES!!

    Simple fun of point and shoot combined with co-op play and frantic zombie dodging goodness.

    An absolute blast. It's basically a twin stick Left 4 Dead. even the characters strongly resemble Louis, Zoey, Francis, and Bill. With 55 waves and multiple modes to unlock, it's an addictive addition to XBLA.

    Awesome game for you and 3 of your friends for $10. Keep your expectations in line... it's onl $10... so the different maps get old after a while, but it's still a hoot!

    Awesome game - worth 800 points, just. Would like to see some (free) downloadable maps for it though, as I feel the content was a little light in that respect.

    If you're a fan of all-things Zombies, I highly recommend this game. It's fast, frantic, plenty of modes, and assuming you've got friends to play with, ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE will last you a while, for it's best in multiplayer. Even 4-Player Local-Play is a heck-a-lot-a-fun!

    Great game. I love everything about this game other than it can get repetitive. Great online for up to 4 people, and its a blast. Another problem is people quit your group almost instantly in online co-op. then your stuck with just yourself, if you can find some friends to play the whole way through, I highly recommend it.

    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.

    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.
