    Zombie Army Trilogy is a true paradise for snipers. You can enjoy the game alone, but it is way more fun when played in co-op. With fifteen challenging missions and a Horde mode you can enjoy this for hours.

    At its core, this is just a reskinned version of Sniper Elite, but Zombie Army Trilogy manages to be so much more than that, with enemies that are fun to shoot, inventive level design and great cooperative play.

    One of the better co-op shooter experiences available on current generation consoles, and the slower pacing and shambling foes give it a character unlike anything else out there.

    Zombie Army Trilogy is an odd game. It is as terrible as enjoyable. The co-op mode options give some fun into a game that could have taken a way better step into the next-gen.

    Zombie Army Trilogy is as brainless as its main antagonists. And the new content included it’s not a sequel indeed, is just a few more maps to kill zombies again.

    Zombie Army Trilogy is an enjoyable co-operative shooter that's a lot of fun when played with others. Unfortunately, it runs out of steam all too quickly, giving you a severe dose of déjà-vu once you realise that you're playing very similar encounters, with only the backdrop changing.

    Zombie Army Trilogy feels exactly like what you think it is – a collection of DLC packages. With a bare-bones frame propping it up, the game is an emaciated experience with an overly ambitious price tag attempting to tie it all together.

Evil Dead Nazis would be a good way to describe it. Expect the unexpected in a high action horror game with incredible atmosphere. Think Sniper Elite and Return to Castle Wolfenstein crossed with something like Evil Dead. It is totally it's own animal. The game has co op and Horde Mode .
    I have the game on PS4

    Omg this is such an amazing zombie WW2 shooter. The reviews don't do this game justice because you know anyone who has really played thisOmg this is such an amazing zombie WW2 shooter. The reviews don't do this game justice because you know anyone who has really played this game, like youtube lets play people, and just other gamers in general you know that this Is a highly recommended game. If your a fan of COD zombies then you will be a huge fan of this series. This is my first time playing it and so many of my friends from youtube told me I must buy this game so here I am. I saw the bad reviews and I thought wait a minute this game is amazing. Sometimes it can be kind of hard because you have zombie snipers shooting at you then regular ground zombies running after you. The best part about this game is you must land a head shot to kill the zombies. Not none of this garbage where if you land a shot anywhere it kills them, no headshots only!! I highly recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a great zombie game. I bought it at 50$ and I thought it was money well spent. Expand

The game is fun and challenging you really need to be close to your teammates because there's hundreds of zombies trying to kill you at once! Not only that but also the type of zombies are really unique, every zombie has something special where you need to do different tactics to win. Story mode is more like a left 4 dead type (which is fun) and horde is even better because you can stay hours and hours with your team surviving and killing zombies. The game art design is beautiful and you can really appreciate this with the 60 FPS. This game is one good Zombie survival game. 10/10 Expand

In a market that has become increasingly saturated overThis is easily one of the most enjoyable Zombie games I have played in a long time. In a market that has become increasingly saturated over the years, mostly due to the ongoing popularity of Call of Duty's Zombie modes, it is refreshing to play something that feels so balls out ridiculous and designed purely for enjoyment. There are no deep metaphors about the state of the human race, no morally ambiguous choices to make, just waves and waves of Zombie scum to obliterate in any means you deem fit. Don't get me wrong, there is definitely a place for a deeper exploration of the Zombie theme in gaming, but it's just so refreshing to see something deviate so whole heartedly from that and pull it off without just seeming like a stupid cash in.
    Obviously this is not a game that will suit everyones tastes, but if you have any kind of love for classic B movie zombie fare or just want to spend a few hours watching heads explode with a few mates, I can't recommend this highly enough.

    I have never played the Nazi Zombie Army series for the PC nor have I really played the Sniper Elite series which it is based upon. So thisI have never played the Nazi Zombie Army series for the PC nor have I really played the Sniper Elite series which it is based upon. So this was my first dip in to the franchise.

    I know Sniper Elite focuses a lot of stealth and tactical game play, which, being a sniper game is what you'd expect. Zombie Army on the other hand requires little based on stealth and lets you go hell bent on killing as many zombies as you can set your eyes on.

    The game play is similar to that of COD Zombies were you have to survive various waves or hordes of zombie onslaught. The zombies come in all wonderful forms to the annoying hard to kill 'Super Elite' zombies which are frustrating hard to kill at times.

    There are nice little additions in the forms of explosives such as grenades, trip mines, land mines, dynamite and various explosive tanks placed around the map.

    Co-op mode is great for playing against either the campaign mode or horde mode with friends, but will require communication and strategic play as zombies spawn from all areas of the map.

    It's nice to see a game that doesn't take itself too seriously, and is essentially exactly what it says on the tin. The music, sound effects, animations and scenery all capture the feel of a grim war torn zombie apocalypse and it's very solid. The music has a retro type 80's feel to it at times and is reminiscent of the low budget exploitation movies around.

    My favorite aspect of Zombie Army Trilogy (ZAT) is the soundtrack. While many contemporary games either downplay or misuse music, ZAT nearlyMy favorite aspect of Zombie Army Trilogy (ZAT) is the soundtrack. While many contemporary games either downplay or misuse music, ZAT nearly always uses music to its full advantage to create a unique atmosphere, that sounds and feels like it was ripped straight out of an 80's horror film in the style of John Carpenter. This game truly separates itself from its contemporaries with its incredible vibe, and horror-themed motif. There are around 12 stages and they are rather long and feel varied enough to not get stale. Despite the level you choose, you'll always be shooting, blowing up, and kicking an incredible amount of zombies. And, as repetitive as that sounds, it really isn't because ZAT offers a healthy amount of strategy while slaying the undead. Well placed trip wires, mounted guns, and explosive canisters can be utilized at the right moments to destroy multiple zombies at one time, and the difficulty can be adjusted for a more arcade based or realistic experience while sniping. Turning up the zombie count is amusing as well, albeit it usually makes the game impossible if turned up too high. The weaponry feels varied enough as far as I'm concerned. You'll most likely find a combination you like, and stick with it. The character selection is ample, but they play exactly the same as far as I can tell. They are only different cosmetically. The graphics aren't anything special, but they get the job done. The game shines, or doesn't actually, when it uses shadows and light contrast to its advantage. Seeing the silhouettes of zombies slowly approaching you hundreds of feet away in a subway that is harshly lit is an amazing sight. Similarly, witnessing shadows of a horde engulf a nearby hallway, builds incredible tension, and works astoundingly well when accompanied with the fore-mentioned soundtrack. Despite the tantalizing atmosphere, the game does have some occasional frame rate drops (more so in multiplayer) that detract from the overall experience. Thankfully, the technical issues aren't persistent enough to spoil an otherwise enjoyable experience. If this game flew under your radar when it was released, and you are a fan of retro-horror, do yourself and buy this unique game. I don't even typically like shooters all that much, especially the Call of Duty franchise, but this is a very different experience. ZAT is certainly an anomaly, and its a shame it won't be played by most gamers, because it's a great game that breathes some fresh air into a stale genre Expand

This game is repetitious and ridiculously difficult in patches, but only through the sheer weight of numbers that come at you. Nothing clever, original or really entertaining in this, and the levels of gore are just over the top. Expand
