  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] As the zombie infection spreads uncontrollably and the undead outnumber humans, a small band of heavily equipped gunslingers set out to destroy as many zombies as they can and try to save any of the remaining survivors in Zombie Apocalypse. Up to four players can try and stop the zombie apocalypse with an arsenal of deadly weapons, such as an assault rifle, flame thrower, or grenade launcher, and when ammo is low a chainsaw will be your last line of defense against becoming one of the undead. This action packed, arcade-style shooter will test your dual analog stick shooting skills and ability to survive 55 days of relentless zombie attacks. Multiplayer action: Spill zombie guts side-by-side with up to four players in online or local multiplayer. Devastating weapons: Burn, saw, and dismember the undead with ten devastating weapons. Fatal hazards: Butcher the walking dead using jet turbines, wood chippers, and other fatal hazards. Survival strategy: Survive over 50 stages of brutal carnage in seven brain-splattering locations. Bonus game modes: Re-live the apocalypse with seven challenging unlockable game modes. [Konami] Expand

  1. 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.
  2. A fun game to play , just not groundbreaking.
  3. Three words: Robotron with zombies. Mindless fun that is best enjoyed with friends. [Dec 2009]
  4. Mindless fun, best played with mates. [Christmas 2009, p.104]
  5. Either alone or within a team of four, brain-eating fun will sure be found.
  6. 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.

    Worse than simply being tedious, though, is how jaw-grindingly frustrating Zombie Apocalypse becomes.

    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. Expand

    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! Expand

    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!!

    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. Expand

    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!! Expand
