    Minor annoyances aside, WWZ: Aftermath is fun, replayable, and challenging. As an added bonus, current WWZ owners can upgrade for $19.99 instead of paying the full $39.99 and carry over their progression and other save data. Overall, World War Z: Aftermath is a refined and replayable experience that offers a slew of content for half the price of its competitors.

    With its deep progression system, vast array of locations and classes, World War Z Aftermath is an excellent play for anyone looking to shoot up some zombies with their friends.

    Aftermath evolves World War Z in some major ways that brought a smile to my face. Kamchatka is a stellar new episode and the improved melee options and first-person mode are great quality-of-life improvements, but there are still issues with online play, barely any attempt at storytelling, and bizarre design choices (such as a lack of aiming down sights in first-person mode) that are huge disappointments. Even so, blasting my way through countless zombies still has lasting charm, and Aftermath makes World War Z better than it has ever been.

    Overall, World War Z: Aftermath is a great team-based shooter, and if players have been waiting for the game to be significantly updated before checking it out, the time is now. Likewise, anyone who played at launch will find that this revamp is well worth a second tour of duty against the undead.

    World War Z’s story was, and remains, a background element whose task is to move the player from episode to episode. Aftermath’s two new episodes are set in interesting environments, and the game’s additions and fixes will be welcome to those returning to World War Z as well as to those just starting out. The first person mechanic has potential but remains incomplete, and the new Vanguard likewise might appeal to those wanting to level a new class. Like the base game, Aftermath sans human players might not be a hard pass, but it isn’t the experience the developers intended. With some friends, or at least competent random homo sapiens, World War Z Aftermath provides a unique take on a familiar enemy and does a great job of translating the terror-inducing swarm of zombies mechanic from film to videogame.

    World War Z Aftermath is a solid expansion to the game. While the new chapters felt disjointed between sections, the new chapter mechanics brought in a challenging element to our zombie slaying fun.

    It's been a long time since I had so much fun playing a game. Recently I had so much fun playing Dead By Daylight about 2 years ago. ThisIt's been a long time since I had so much fun playing a game. Recently I had so much fun playing Dead By Daylight about 2 years ago. This game rocks and I want to come back to it all the time. So far I'm only playing the campaign, with one friend + two bots. Bots can be disabled in private network mode. The campaign is great. Each act is divided into several episodes. Beautiful landscapes and polished maps. Incredibly huge hordes of zombies to kill. Even bigger than those in Days Gone. And this climate. And what's really cool is the lot of randomness in the game. Sometimes you have to approach the episode several times because it is difficult (we play on level 3 of difficulty 5 - at the beginning I recommend playing on level 1, even if you have already played some FPS), but thanks to the randomness, each episode can surprise you every time. Highly recommend! Fantastic game. P.S. By default, private network mode uses an external server. I recommend enabling the local server option (less ping in my case). Expand

    I am up on this game, it fixes many of the short falls of the original WWZ game of the franchise, and does a good job of claiming that L4DI am up on this game, it fixes many of the short falls of the original WWZ game of the franchise, and does a good job of claiming that L4D vibe without being L4D in detail. I find it a much better spiritual sequel to L4D and Black 4 Blood which lost the emersion experience with all that card drawing mumbo jumbo. I feel there is a little too much RPG element to the game, makes it a bit more overwhelming in terms of complicating the load outs, characters, etc. Making this game a solid 8.5 Expand

    I like the game enough to recommend it : It's good and the shooting is enjoyable : COULD have been an 8 !

    I like the game enough to recommend it : It's good and the shooting is enjoyable : COULD have been an 8 !

    BUT I - L O A T H - the creative direction of it! The story and characters are dull, and the story text book! I dont rate the music- I turn it off.

    So I would knock it down to a 7.

    The rpg aspect is enjoyable - I felt reasonably balanced(i think)though - and that goes with the weapons and shooting.

    Maps are decent too!

    There are also dynamics to fights where turrets and other defenses can be placed , as well as drops that boost your xp points, amongst other things...

    I have also had problems with servers, had some players ruin sessions.

    Game-engine optimisation issues have also dropped my frame rate at times.
