    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.

    Graphics and Artstyle really do fit the 80s vibe. If you are looking fora game with quest markers and a minimap or other handholding featuresGraphics and Artstyle really do fit the 80s vibe. If you are looking fora game with quest markers and a minimap or other handholding features Gen0 might not be for you. But get 3 friends together and its gonna be an awesome coop experience where you solve mysteries, explore a beautiful landscape and fight some robots. Expand

    Overall the game is a lot of fun but unfortunately really buggy and needs to be fixed.
    This was the final straw that made us shut down the game.

    Nice graphics, but the gameplay... As if the developers did not test their open world game. Repetitive, broken AI, boring combat against bots,Nice graphics, but the gameplay... As if the developers did not test their open world game. Repetitive, broken AI, boring combat against bots, and most importantly: No rewarding gameplay. You literally get tons of equipment and items very early. Random house, random loot, random quest, random enemy. It is worth $5 perhaps, unfortunately. 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

    - Mainquest bugged and sometimes cant be completed
    - Sidequests bugged too and very often cant be completed either
    - All houses are copy/paste and look the same
    - Big map with no purpose
    - Only 6 Robots which spawn every now and then but are boring to fight except one
    - No real goal in this game
    - No rewarding if you complete quests or kill robots
    - After 2-5 hours of play you have seen 90% of the game
    - New patch makes systems crash more than before or not even start the game
    - Mods on the forum will delete negative posts or threads entirely if they reveal anger and frustration with the game too much!

    No mans sky - Ripoff to save the company
    Atlas - Ripoff cause greedy company
    Fallout 76 - Ripoff cause Bethesda
