    Zombie Army 4: Dead War is a game designed to be fun with friends, and it does deliver. There’s nothing revolutionary, but if you’ve enjoyed previous entries or if you just want to shoot nazis with friends, you’ll have a great time with Dead War.

    Both the storyline and gameplay in the Zombie Army series have that classic “B movie” vibe to them, and with a storyline as insane as this one, it just feels right as the game is self aware and gives the audience what they would want, including tons of gore, humour, and satisfying kills. Rebellion really took things to the next level, not only with tons of variety of undead, but missions and areas to explore. There is so much game here with replayability and I hope it will be expanded with some DLC or online challenges. Even if this is your first time experiencing the Zombie Army franchise, or a game like this, this is a great title to start with. Rebellion really has perfected the zombie shooter. So grab a drink and lets go!

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War works great in co-op and sigle player. Though the stiff controls, mediocre graphics and nothing revolutionary, it offers dozens of hours of fun.

    Although it doesn't stand out compared with other zombie games, Zombie Army 4: Dead War has its unique skill tree, weapon upgrade system, and combo system, which make the game fun enough to play.

    Shallow, yet entertaining co-op carnage that lacks variety in the long run and only lives up to its potential with a full team.

    By its nature Zombie Army 4 can be a bit repetitive, but at the same time - especially when playing it in coop with your friends - it can be an immensely fun experience for short sessions of nazi zombie killing frenzy.

    No one is going to play Zombie Army 4: Dead War for a nuanced alternative history or thought-provoking story. Its raison d’etre is killing hordes of undead zombies in as many interesting ways as possible, alone or with some buddies, and maybe caring enough to try to earn a high score in the process. Whether solo or coop, Dead War is entertaining enough, though visually a bit behind the curve and in need of a few bug fixes and pass with the polishing cloth.

    Zombie Army 4 feels like an entertaining B-movie crossed with a highly playable and mindless third person shooter.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War offers few variations on the horde survival template… but what it does, it does it so well. If you love arcade shooters, it’s a no-braaaaaainer. [Issue#172, p.77]

    We really enjoyed our time with Zombie Army 4. I would have liked better music and some more varied objectives but apart from that it is hard to not get stuck into slaying hordes of the undead. Especially if you have a friend to watch your back, like I did.

    Zombie Army 4 doesn't create anything new, but it's fun and entertaining. The cooperative mode is the main point of the whole production.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War is an enjoyable and generous spin-off, with a delicious Grindhouse flavour that makes killing zombies quite fun, especially in cooperation, even if it can sounds a bit redundant and feels dated visually and in terms of A.I.

    In its self-aware campiness and macabre action, there is a contagious confidence in Zombie Army 4 that will leave anyone who plays it a fan of this exciting co-op shooter.

    Its enemies might be mindless but while it’s very one note the gameplay in Zombie Army 4 offers some surprisingly engrossing co-operative action.

    While cumbersome controls and an oddly-behaving combo meter can betray the underlining intention of pace and of orderly chaos ruling over, Zombie Army 4: Dead War does just enough to shun these unfortunate moments. Players voluntarily, not forcibly, involving themselves with such madness with sufficiently-positive results.
  17. 70
    Zombie Army 4 is a solid co-op offering that offers plenty of blood-spilling fun. However, it's let down by dated mission design and repetition, while its single-player isn't half as fun as when you're teaming up with a group of mates. Fans of the series will definitely appreciate what's on offer, though.

    Zombie Army 4 expands upon the basics of the preceding trilogy, adding depth through weapons and perks. It offers dozens of hours of zombie action, topped off by a highly addicting co-op mode. Mediocre graphics and clunky controls keep the game from being a must-have, though.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War is the Farming Simulator among the shooting games. There is a therapeutic beauty in the systematic liquidation of zombie nazis, but the game simply does not offer that.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War brings the best from this franchise along with a pretty nice diversity of new opponents to kill. It’s fun at times, but still lurks way behind current zombie games.

    At its core, Zombie Army 4 feels uninspired and fails to capture anything unique. With the plethora of zombie video game content out, it seems safe to say that there is plenty out there that have done it better.

    Zombie Army 4 is the reanimated corpse of gaming’s past, stitched together from the best bits of Sniper Elite. It’s a B-movie pastiche stuffed with classic movie references and thousands of heads (and bollocks) to pop. But most importantly, it’s a new game. A new, fairly-enjoyable video game in 2020 – what a concept.
  23. 55
    Ultimately, Zombie Army 4: Dead War is an amalgamation of tropes you’ve seen before, but it never quite nails any of them in a meaningful way. Want a fun cooperative zombie experience? Play Left 4 Dead or Call of Duty: Zombies. Want something funny? Play Dead Rising. Or how about something with a worthwhile story? Telltale’s Walking Dead might be up your alley. In 2020 when there are so many games releasing, begging for your time, mediocrity is a tough sell.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War knows how to convey the feeling of an apocalyptic world. Unfortunately, this is overshadowed by repetitive missions and moderate graphics. What remains is a superficial zombie game with many shattering bodies that it must have uncomplicated co-entertainment.

    At first, Zombie Army 4: Dead War is pure stress relief. Full of energy, it generously rewards the zombie frag and pushes the player to go further to collect items, assets and improvements. Sadly, when the initial adrenaline rush fades away, the experience quickly becomes repetitive, even in co-op. All that remains is a very classical action game that won't leave a mark on our minds.

    While it borrows heavily from its sniper-focused counterpart, Zombie Army 4 doesn't feel nearly as engaging, and it fails to capitalize on its promises of over-the-top gameplay and horror.

    Killing zombie Hitler should be a highlight of any experience as any chance to squash Nazi scum should be. But in Zombie Army 4’s campaign, it was more of a relief as it signaled the end of a tedious, monotonous experience that was only bolstered by the ability to get through it with other people.

    While the game does what it says on the tin, it doesn't add a wealth of new experiences or features to set it aside from previous Zombie Army titles…A few hours into the game... you do sadly get the impression that you've seen everything Zombie Army 4: Dead War has to offer.
