    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.

    How can anyone give anything less than a 10 for this game? I know, be a Left 4 Dead FANBOY and get salty that its not Left 4 Dead 3. SeriouslyHow can anyone give anything less than a 10 for this game? I know, be a Left 4 Dead FANBOY and get salty that its not Left 4 Dead 3. Seriously look at the 0 comments, 9/10 are mentioning that it's not Left 4 Dead 3, or its a Left 4 Dead rip off, or it brings nothing new to the table that Left 4 Dead didn't. DO NOT LET BIASED OPINIONS steer you from playing a NEW GOOD GAME that does bring A LOT of new mechanics into the zombie world. I love this game and the sheer panic induced fighting when 500 zombies are spilling over a wall trying to get you and your team. AMAZING, please keep up the great work developers. I can't wait for new content to be released after you guys bring it to the switch!!! FINALLY A NEW AWESOME ZOMBIE GAME!!! HECK YEAH!! Expand

But it turned out that the game was good. It was such an interesting substitute for our favorite remaining left 4 dead. Huge crowds of zombies that were in the film, a large list of weapons, 4 different locations: New York, Moscow, Jerusalem and Tokyo. There are real mistakes, but where we are, a world without mistakes, they always exist. Therefore, I put 9 out of 10. Expand

    Forgettable characters, boring dialogue, feels too janky, etc.
    It's ok for what it is with the perks and gameplay but honestly it just lacks the feel and over all replay-ability that L4D has. I just played through every stage and it's the same boring dialogue with slightly differences mainly just being my team and perks. L4D is barebones yes but the way how they designed it makes me want to go back every single time to hear the characters, soundtrack, play the stage with random different spawns, test new stage mods, etc. Also the versus is pretty bad.
    It needs mods, new free stages, better overall character interactivity and more.
    Also it's an Epic Games Exclusive.

    6 out of 10. It definitely can be better.

Same zombies same stupid AI same almost same special zombies. The onliest thing is that it has improved graphics. If you like these kind of games i suggest play the original game, left 4 dead 2.

    The guns are nice but too op. Like left 4 dead you can almost not die by the default zombied. Really not worth the price tag.

    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
