You'll be locked to your seat!
Over the years, I've been disappointed with games I've downloaded from PSN. Not this time! This is one of the most fun games I have ever played. I didn't want to step away from it - even to use th bathroom. The weapons range from believable (Rifle and SMG) to awesome (Launcher and Blade Thrower). The use of zombie distraction - car alarms, flares, mines with beeping red lights - is the perfect way to gather the undead into a nice little group before firing a ricocheting lawn mower blade through them. The "hidden" treasures are well-placed and perfect for the situation you happen to be in. There are times when you think you are about to be overrun by hundreds of zombies until you drop a stick of dynamite or fire a grenade with the launcher to whittle down the numbers. The lighting is perfect ambience to get seriously creeped out when a half-dozen zombie beasties pop out of the back of a mangled tractor-trailer. The sound of crunching zombie bones beneath your feet as you walk is both disgusting and hilarious! This is easily worth the $14.99 and then some!!
Long Lost Top Down Shooter
I saw this game and had to have it. I am a huge zombie killer fan. This game is like a mix of all the zombie movies that have been created and the games all in one. The sound effects and the lighting in the graphics gave it a really good "creepy" feeling. There were a couple of time that I actually got spooked by some of the surprise triggers in the game. The enemies were excellent, even though at times there seemed to be way too many of them to win the battle! The coop works pretty good, but the camera will get in the way sometimes.
All and all the game is really fun. The only thing I was a little dissapointed in was finishing the game. It seemed like it was done and OVER. You spend a lot of time upgrading your weapons. It would have been nice if they let you keep the upgraded weapons and play through all of the levels that you unlocked. Aside from that, it was worth the price of admission.
Not since Diablo...
I haven't played a game I found this addicting since Diablo II. This is one of those games for me that I couldn't wait to get home or get out of bed and play first thing. I like the view, similar to Diablo, and I love that I feel like I'm going to die every minute. There are so few casual stages where you get to relax. I thought it played through like COD Black Ops, where you die and go back to your last checkpoint. That made it easy to change strategies until you found one that worked.
I'm on my second play through and getting killed in the last stage. I've spent a few hours trying to get past the horde this time, but so far, without success. I dream about it at night, and for me, that says it all!
I'll be playing this one, and the new On-line DLC for a long time to come!
9 out of 10 because....
This game is a lot of fun, for those who have played Alien swarm or the classic multi player zombie on black ops, the style of the game is about the same, for those that haven't it's pretty much a 2d/3d-ish where you go around shooting zombies down, the environment has cars you shoot at to distract the wave of zombies, etc.. The story to this game is really amazing, every stage is packed with zombies and unexpected moments. I seriously face palm myself when I find out if I didn't do that it would be easier on me. XD
Only thing that's keeping me from giving it a 10/10 is that on the co op online, there's no voice chat.
Other than that I say this game is worth playing. :D
The worst game I have ever played.
This is by far THE WORST GAME I HAVE EVER PLAYED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. The screen is so dark I couldn't even tell what I was doing while playing on a 42 inch screen. All you have is a flash light and extremely under- powered guns that even if you max them out take like ten bullets to kill the weakest zombies in the game (don't even get me started on the big guys). So with the screen being so dark and a flash light that points in one direction and the fastest zombies I have ever seen in a movie or video game ambushing you constantly from all sides, it's a perfect formula for an impossible train- wreck of a game.
Great zombie game
If this game wasn't being offered as a free Welcome Back game I doubt I would have purchased it but I'm glad it was. The graphics could pass for a PS2 game but the overall gameplay is fun. The best part of the game is the co-op mode in my opinion. The view is an over the top view so it elimates the split screen which is great. The controls are pretty easy and the price tag is not bad at all so go download this game, you won't regret it.
Very fun and addicting
this is a very underrated game that is amazing. the levels are long and there is 10 of them there are 5 difficulties and the top 2 are extremely hard. the guns are awesome and are even better when you upgrade them. great to play with a friend or online. the sounds are great and its awesome when you walk over all the zombies. many different types of zombies and monsters and many different ways to kill them the enviroments are also cool and it is worth $15
Sick environments and awesome enemies
This game is a top down shooter all about kicking some nasty zombie butt. The game is full of hugely detailed environments and players are rewarded frequently with gold and combo upgrades to buy more zombie killing goodness. This game can be difficult alone, I highly recommend playing with a friend for a higher chance of survival as well as an even better game experience.
Really fun if you like killing in big numbers.
It's an amazing game! I can play for hours without noticing. If you like killing enemies in big numbers than get this game! If you ever played Dynasty Warriors then this is like the same style of killing. A lot of fun and it gets harder so it's not one of those games where you get bored really fast.
Thank god this was free.
I was thinking about getting this for a while, and after PSN went down and this was one of the selectable free games I decided to get it. Thank god I didn't actually spend money on it before, it sucks. I've definetely played worse games, but no game has worse checkpoints then this.
