    I’d absolutely suggest giving World War Z a shot, even more so if you were a fan of Left 4 Dead. It really scratches that itch, namely a fun, zombie focused co-op shooter with a solid progression system that’ll keep you hooked for a while. So despite its association with a so-so horror film, World War Z manages to rise above its source material into something that I found to be a lot of fun.

    World War Z is a pretty fun but extremely short co-op zombie shooter that is eerily similar to Left4Dead but helps counter the withdrawal any fans of that franchise may have. A few more bug fixes and much more in-game content would give this game the much-needed resuscitation it deserves.

    World War Z successfully recreates the most spectacular scenes of the movie. The co-op experience works well but it's a bit short and doesn't add anything fresh to the genre.

    World War Z has a Left 4 Dead-based-DNA that exposes too much its lack of originality. The game, in its essence, is fun and enjoyable, but most of the merit it isn't all of its doing.

    Reasonably priced but with only glimmers of personality. A fairly standard selection of multiplayer modes are livened up by the horde and generally a lot more fun than a lacking story campaign. [IssueE163, p.60]

    World War Z has some moments that are an utter blast – the special zombie types and impending doom of a zombie tower bring pure excitement. However, these moments are few and far between, leaving a shell of game with very little content, a lack of creativity, a near non-existent story, and a disappointingly shallow progression system.

ItI would have given this game an 8-9, but because of the clear review bombing below I am upping the score to a 10. This game is super fun. It is mindless zombie action best played with friends. I agree with the guy below - there is now way this is worth less than a 7. The game is beyond insane in certain areas. It isn't Left4Dead because the action was nowhere near as intense in that game. Streamers are loving it and the one guy who gave a "critic" review was clearly doing it as clickbait. I would say a solid 8 is much more accurate. I will say it is much more fun online and Sony PSN was down yesterday so I haven't played as much as I would like. Expand

I personally play on PS4 and there are no lags or framerate drops. The graphics are simple but good. It would be even better if they had other DUB except for English.

    It's a game worth playing! Buy it!

    Not too bad of a game. Its basically Left 4 Dead with 4 different scenarios that have 3 parts to complete each. Runs well and looks prettyNot too bad of a game. Its basically Left 4 Dead with 4 different scenarios that have 3 parts to complete each. Runs well and looks pretty good. Does need more content, but then again Left 4 Dead charged $60 bucks for around the same amount of content or less, but this is only $40....Fun as hell with friends and is clearly meant to be played multiple times....

    Although better than the movie, unfortunately, World War Z doesn’t quite meet the standards of Left 4 Dead. There is some fun to be had withAlthough better than the movie, unfortunately, World War Z doesn’t quite meet the standards of Left 4 Dead. There is some fun to be had with friends mowing down hordes of zombies and playing online however after playing through the rinse-and-repeat story missions, I find myself much less interested in the game with no motivation to want to play any of the levels more than once.
