    Generation Zero could probably be best described as an unpolished gem. If a second part is going to be made (and I sincerely hope that’s happening), I’m sure that it’s going to be much better and better focused. Until then, if you're playing Generation Zero in a single player or with other people, you’re in for a treat. You’re going to experience something unique, and that in itself is valuable.

    Generation Zero was designed with co-op in mind, but it lacks basic quality of life features, like dedicated servers, ignore list for matchmaking and even something as vital as integrated voice chat. [Issue#237, p.50]

    The basic approach of Generation Zero is quite appealing, unfortunately the execution lacks finesse. The world is too big, too generic, too lifeless. The story and missions feel trivial and the numerous bugs and glitches ruin the last bit of fun.

    Three hours in, and Generation Zero is running on fumes. It will take you 30 hours to get to the end of this story, but what's the point? This game is just as dead as everyone in the alt-dimensional Sweden.

    Generation Zero stumbles on its own concept et never achieves to find balance between shooter and survival. Repetitive and dull, it does have some ideas but they don’t have enough impact to hide all the flaws.

    Generation Zero is a beautiful, broken, and boring jog through 1980s Sweden with a side of stealth and robots.

    Great graphics and fun gameplay, solid launch from Avalanche. Love the co-op features as well as solo.

The only thing wrong with it was that they released it way too early. I haven't encountered any bugs because most of them have been fixed, and this game is by far NOT empty. In fact, i'd say BOTW is more empty than this. It's overall a great game, that's best played with friends, but it's still fine single player (which is what i'm playing). Expand

    This game is one of the most underrated of the year. Very few people seem to have heard about it and those that did seem to have just reviewedThis game is one of the most underrated of the year. Very few people seem to have heard about it and those that did seem to have just reviewed it and forgot about it. The developers have worked very hard on releasing many fixes and gameplay updates in their monthly updates and are also very active and communicative with their community. There is still much room for improvement and additions but it is still a great game and I would recommend it. Expand

Все очень медленно, оптимизация хромает, монстры довольно сильные даже на легком уровне, вообще не понятно что и как и куда и зачем идем, задумка интересная, но реализация так себе. В целом 6/10 побегать можно, если закрывать глаза на баги текстур и периодические вылеты. Expand

    Think of Evolve but even more boring, who even remembers that game existed? I'll put money down you will forget this one even quicker. So nowThink of Evolve but even more boring, who even remembers that game existed? I'll put money down you will forget this one even quicker. So now we have the dullness of Evolve, add in boring combat when you do find something to fight in this game, for all that can be done with killer robots they went with pretty much what you could guess off the top of your head, dog robots? Yup. Something like the tank in Left for dead? Yup.
    Oh and its glitchy as all hell. Enjoooyyyy

    An empty world without any NPC’s to interact with. Quests that are without rewards or even has any point. The only way to understand the storyAn empty world without any NPC’s to interact with. Quests that are without rewards or even has any point. The only way to understand the story is to listen to recordings (made by sub par voice actors) or read notes while you rummage through houses that are copy and paste versions of a very limited amount of buildings. Underpowered weapons, few bullets and tons of robots to kill you over and over… Better play Horizon Zero Dawn instead. Expand
