    Throw down the money and come enjoy the world that was brought to us in the movie. You won’t see Brad Pitt in the game, but you will have one heck of a time either way.

    A capable coop shooter with a lot of potential and amazing swarm mechanics.

    Is World War Z as good as Left 4 Dead? No. Is it fun despite that? Yes. There's few pleasures in gaming that can compare to swinging a thrumming chainsaw blade through a horde of ravenous undead, and World War Z delivers. And really, it's not like Valve makes games anymore.

    World War Z is a decent Koop-Survival-Shooter, which compensates for its lack of innovation with a lack of major flaws.

    Overall, World War Z provides a decent co-op zombie experience, despite some drawbacks. The weapons lack oomph, even when powered up, but they are still decent. The class system doesn't make anyone feel too different, but much like the weapons, there aren't any terrible classes. The locale changes are nice (even if the level beats remain similar), and the inclusion of standard adversarial multiplayer modes is also welcome. It's in real need of polish as far as matchmaking basics go, but it will satisfy those who have been waiting a long time for another co-op, zombie-killing experience.

    While we wait for Left 4 Dead to come back from the dead, World War Z is not a bad option, but it isn’t as good as that series. If you like killing zombies with friends you’ll have a great time, although the game has a fair amount of shortcomings.

    If World War Z proves one thing, then how exceptionally good Left 4 Dead was more than 10 years ago. It tries to emulate the formula but in the end fails to replicate the good times.

    It looks nice and would be quite good if not for the fact that the companion AI is abysmal (I like to play solo with bots). This is enhancedIt looks nice and would be quite good if not for the fact that the companion AI is abysmal (I like to play solo with bots). This is enhanced by the fact that many missions have you defend places but the AI is terrible at protecting stuff so you end up losing missions instantly because you failed to defend some point that you have to defend yourself while the AI don't care (these instant mission fails is also a serious design flaw in terms of being really annoying in itself to just lose in that way) Expand

    I normally don't write reviews but after playing this game for a couple hours I felt it was necessary. Game play/story was adequate. NothingI normally don't write reviews but after playing this game for a couple hours I felt it was necessary. Game play/story was adequate. Nothing fantastically amazing but it was enjoyable. The game breaker is the lack of private games with friends. If you don't have a full group of 4 people you HAVE to have a random person join. So when you're a level 1 and get a level 59 joining your party you're constantly left in the dust. Always the last to the checkpoints and the last to where any weapons might have been. At least cut scenes between the co-op episodes couldn't be skipped unless all players agreed but having to have these random people instead of AI or scaling to smaller sized parties really brought the game down. Until they implement private lobbies I am disappointed that I spent money on this game. Expand

    not good at all, barely a minute in i already experienced 5 audio cuts. Usually happens when theres too much sounds playing, so thats poornot good at all, barely a minute in i already experienced 5 audio cuts. Usually happens when theres too much sounds playing, so thats poor optimization. This game proves that somehow, a game with tons of money put into it can still be garbage. Left 4 dead is worth more of your time than this garbage. Animations are stiff and look wack, speech is lacking in variety and mainly consists of "rest in peace" and thats it. NPC speech is very unnatural and weapons make no sense, why would there be a 2 meter long chainsaw? The game looks pretty unfinished. The problem is the fact that it just is LAZY, if you look at animations, stiff, gunplay, nothing unique, optimization? garbage. Expand
