    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.

    Very good game. Basically Left4Dead3. The hordes of zombies are really impressive.

Story mode could do with more levels, but the ~15 available are well designed and enjoyable, if short. Taking down the swarms is exhilarating,and on harder difficulty levels you really do need to work as a team.

    I find the various competitive multiplayer modes rather frustrating and uninspiring, and the typical case of a handful of expert players dominating everyone else, but maybe that's just me. It works fine.

    Really fun coop game. Has various bugs/glitches, which is annoying. Fun gameplay and cooperative game.

    Ok, well first of all World War Z the game is a fun game, with friends and occasionally on your own. The game is actually quite impressive notOk, well first of all World War Z the game is a fun game, with friends and occasionally on your own. The game is actually quite impressive not being a triple A game but still comes with its flaws. Seeing the huge hordes running at you and then trying your best to gun them down with your tiny submachine gun is fun and challenging. Obviously being at mid to low budget it will come with its bugs, glitches and usual shenanigans you would expect when their not working with millions and millions of dollars of budget. The biggest and the most unfortunate flaw with game is its lack of content. With only 4 chapters and 3 episodes a chapter and each chapter being 20-45 minutes long it only took me 3 days of a couple of hours gaming to finish the story mode. The multiplayer is very mediocre but has a nice twist with adding in the zombies to be a threat along side other players. Also the story missions feel the same every time, same objective every second mission but in a different environment. Overall the game is pretty fun to play and CAN be a very enjoyable experience if you are a person who is easily entertained. Expand
