    Occasionally stupid AI and the lack of split-screen play aren't enough to dull the formidable lustre of Warhammer End Times: Vermintide as one of the most entertaining and flat out enjoyable online co-op games you can get on PS4. Killing rats has never been so much fun.

    The co-op mode is great, giving the game a lot of replay value. The rest of Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide is fine as well, except for the lackluster framerate.

    Brutal and epic, Warhammer - End Times - Vermintide is an spectacular cooperative action game with a good mix of heroes, amazing massive combats and a visceral melee system.

    Warhammer Vermintide reach PS4 and Xbox One one year after PC market. And it is still a great co-op action game, set in the amazing board game universe.

    Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide delivers a fun, solid co-op experience, but the console version apparently suffers from a sometimes slow matchmaking and 30 fps graphics.

    About a year after the original release for the PC, console users may now enjoy Vermintide as well. The game is most enjoyable with 3 others, as the bot's AI leaves a lot to be desired. If you are into co-op and like a challenge, this is for you.

    It doesn’t take long to see that Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide for PS4 was certainly not constructed with consoles in the forethought; it’s quite the afterthought, and it painfully shows. Stick to the PC for this one.

I wish more people would give it a chance. To the people that say that they are having "performance issues", I have not had a single issue. The only issue I have with this game at all is that I wish more people played it! And that isn't the games fault. Expand

    Being a Warhammer fan and a lover of Left 4 Dead, this amalgamation of the two genres, to me, makes for an amazing game. Whilst it differsBeing a Warhammer fan and a lover of Left 4 Dead, this amalgamation of the two genres, to me, makes for an amazing game. Whilst it differs slightly from L4D with the aspect of unlocking weapons/ items and leveling up, the core gameplay is pretty much on L4D's level. You HAVE to work together!

    The only reason I gave it a 9 is due to the fact, that when it was initially released, it had a game breaking bug which was the invert axis was properly unstable and there were match making crashes. Since the update though, everything seems to be working fine.

    A truly recommended buy if you love L4D, and to me, the added bonus is that its set in the Warhammer universe. And for the price... it's a steal!

    A first-person action game with a focus on online play, Warhammer End Times: Vermintide essentially attempts to take the Left 4 Dead templateA first-person action game with a focus on online play, Warhammer End Times: Vermintide essentially attempts to take the Left 4 Dead template into the Warhammer universe.

    Personally I don’t know anything much about Warhammer, so can’t speak to that side of things, but as a game this just isn’t very good. The focus is primarily on melee combat, but with hordes of enemies flooding the darkly light environments it’s hard to even know what’s going on at times, and attacking seems to be just a matter of mashing the R2 button over and over. When also you factor in that 99% of the enemies are identical, the end result is that there is just essentially no satisfaction to be found in the combat that makes up the entire game.

    Outside of maybe any big Warhammer fans I wouldn't really recommend this to anyone.

Everything about this game feels like the deva just thought "let's make it good enough and at least Warhammer fans will buy it". The missions feel very similar to one another despite the different locales. It is like a poor man's L4D, with Skaven. Expand

    Servers don’t work. Lack of communication from developer. Would not buy as you can’t play without logging in
