    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.

    In comparison to rather modest predecessors Zombie Army 4 is a true giant. Such that sometimes all of its splendour gets a bit tiresome. [03/2020, p.66]

    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.

    It’s great, no idea why people rate it this low.
    I have played L4D2 for years and ZA4 lines up really well compared to L4D2.
    The only downside
    It’s great, no idea why people rate it this low.
    I have played L4D2 for years and ZA4 lines up really well compared to L4D2.
    The only downside is that this game is not on Steam yet. Epic launcher is required, works well tho so not too bad.
    Game looks great, the setting is dark/ foggy and fits the zombie genre. The gunplay is nice and the mechanics are insanely detailed: especially in ‘hard’. Bullet drop, wind influence on your bullet trajectory, friendly fire. This is challenging. The game has the same ‘slomo’ on great shots that Sniper Elite has. I did however turn it off after playing shortly since it kind of gets you out of the flow if you know what I mean.
    Campaign is cool, fun story. Horde mode is awesome, starts up easy but you’re overrun quickly if you don’t pay attention. Best when played coop with 3 others. Everything can also be played solo/ offline if that matters to you.
    I’d rate this 8/10, due to the fact that this is on 5/10 right now I’ll just press that 10 button.

    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...

    A massive letdown with several paywalls and almost no content.
    The setting looks great even if there is way to much fog
    The horde mode is
    A massive letdown with several paywalls and almost no content.
    The setting looks great even if there is way to much fog
    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
