    Infused with the jovial DNA of Strange Brigade, Rebellion's canny combination of horror and absurdity is their best game yet and a grand example of how to add progression and scoring to a modern shooter.

    Top-tier gameplay with captivating ideas is a fun approach to a genre that needs as much creativity as it can find. Different difficulty options welcome all types of players and significantly lets one grow and aim for yet, another challenge.

    Zombie Army 4 feels like an old friend you're reconnecting with after a few years. Even though it's similar to its predecessors, the game has been refined into something that holds greater mass appeal. Weapon upgrading, fresh enemy design, and a packed progression system give players a reason to keep coming back. The core gameplay loop is even better more when tackled in co-op, yielding some hilarious and action-packed adventures. Despite the good, the game's core issues arise from a bland campaign that lacks the impressive set pieces and locations from the previous iterations.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War is a good, fun and solid cooperative TPS game but gives off a persistent feeling of "déjà vu".

    There is a ton of fun to be had with Zombie Army 4. But that fun, like most vices, is best in moderation. Its skinner box sensibilities alongside gameplay that turns stale fast makes for a game you cannot binge. It’s a simple pleasure to kill zombies, and you’ll get that if you want it with some solid mechanics. It’s a weekend game, something to play once in awhile when you and a friend can find an opening in your respective schedules. But if you don’t find splatter engaging, you won’t miss much.

    Zombie Army 4 is indeed better with friends. While the early levels really lack enough zombies to get into the groove of things, once you’ve reached the climax of the third episode most of those problems fade away. Zombies do remain a bit underwhelming however, with only the elites presenting a real threat most of the time. Overall, Zombie Army 4 does more right than it does wrong, and while your mileage will definitely vary, I certainly had fun while romping through a zombified Europe.

    Ultimately, Zombie Army 4: Dead War has the same feel as any later-day entry into a horror franchise does. It has delved all the way into the realm of schlock, completely unapologetic for its own existence. There’s something almost admirable about that, but the magic isn’t quite there. That said, if you and your buds are looking for a decent way to pass 10 or so hours, there are certainly worse choices than this. The shooting is among the best around and the X-ray shots are endlessly entertaining. I just wish there were more here to hold my attention past a single playthrough.

    A lot of improvements if u compare it to zombie army trilogy, progression system pretty good , good graphic, no issues with performance. LongA lot of improvements if u compare it to zombie army trilogy, progression system pretty good , good graphic, no issues with performance. Long campaign( 9 missions every mission has 4 chapters) better ballistic and specials skills added and finishers, now we have hp and we have to use med kids or do finishers to restore life.
    Ps .If u r not sure if this game is good I will add a few more arguments : zombie sharks,zombie tanks...

    Very boring and repetitive. The whole game is push some button-wait till something opens- kill zombies on closed arena while waiting. What wasVery boring and repetitive. The whole game is push some button-wait till something opens- kill zombies on closed arena while waiting. What was the point of making a zombie game from sniper elite if 95% of the game you use a shotgun and actually don't need any accurate aiming. Overall lazy approach and very boring levels Expand

    The horde mode is ridiculous 4 (boring) maps with around 90 minutes of gameplay and 2 two paywalls (several weapons and future maps). And that all for 80€..?! Avoid this shameless ripoff like the plague

    so it had no community in march 2020, it have no community now. but a year after rebellion makes 10% discount! you guys called it cash grabso it had no community in march 2020, it have no community now. but a year after rebellion makes 10% discount! you guys called it cash grab after launch, how to call it now, after a year? with 58 dlcs that are sold separately? this is a greeeeeed. greed does not make good games.
    soon to be 80% off, just as strange brigade was. another fail.
