    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.

    Very inspired by Left 4 Dead in its mechanisms, World War Z, yet, plays differently. It hasn’t the same depth, which limits it to a simple way to let off steam, but it can offer some good memories for you and all your friends.

    If anyone enjoys cooperative player vs environment games like Left 4 Dead, Strange Brigade or Warhammer: Vermintide, then World War Z is for you. It’s not the greatest of the bunch, but it scratches the same itch as the above games while bringing a little something of its own with the swarm mechanic.

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

    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

    There have been many games trying to revive the Left for Dead franchise and I think this is the closest someone has come.

The is clearly a good one, not perfect, but still delivers great gamingDefinitely not what you can expect from a movie based video game. The is clearly a good one, not perfect, but still delivers great gaming experience and is really closest as possible to the high octane zombies sequences from the movie. The game turns as a massive update on the Left 4 Dead franchise with more action, more places, characters and a lot more zombies of course to feet to the World War Z universe. The local multiplayer mode delivers a lot of fun and is basically the most attractive way to play it. So this is definitely a surprise to me since I've only expected low quality movie based video game that turns into a real nice one. Great job! Expand

    Few players are online, maybe it's all because of the exclusivity in the store from Epik.
    What is really new and interesting in this game, I personally do not watch. Graphics, gameplay, all that is in the game, we have already seen in other projects, which are mass in Steam, with less money.
    It will be in Steam, maybe then I will play it with friends, but now I will not spend any time or money on it.

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.

    Отвратительно безобразная поделка, ничего кроме отвращения подобные игры не вызывают, отвратительный клон игры Left 4 Dead 10 летней давности,Отвратительно безобразная поделка, ничего кроме отвращения подобные игры не вызывают, отвратительный клон игры Left 4 Dead 10 летней давности, причем не самый удачный клон. Здесь безобразно все, начиная от графики, заканчивая геймплеем, боевкой и устаревшими механиками. Такой унылый мусор стыдно выпускать в 2019 году Expand
