Carrying the torch for games like Left 4 Dead and the mod No More Room in Hell, Zombie Army 4: Dead War is the best way for gamers looking to satisfy their 4-player, zombie-killing cravings. Players can expect to shoot, smash and explode zombies at nearly every moment of this atmospheric and bombastic shooter.
The story might not be the main draw to a game like Zombie Army 4: Dead War, but the story is delightfully silly that players won’t be able to keep their eyes away from the screen. The story sees a mysterious cult bring a horde of undead nazis to life using dark magic. Emerging from hell itself, these Zombies are cliche as it gets, but the campy atmosphere doesn’t take away from the overall experience. If anything, the ridiculous story only adds extra enjoyment when playing with a group of friends.
Fantasy World War II
The game uses an alternate timeline to explore what it might be like if World War II was injected with some more fantastical elements. This leads to a great player experience in exploring what the world of Zombie Army 4 has to offer, as well as the array of weapons players can use to mow down the zombie hordes.
The eight detailed missions that the game has to offer in its story campaign are varied and well-designed. There’s a number of different locations and settings that will keep you and your friends entertained and unnerved. From defending a boat as you cross into enemy territory or you explore the confines of an underwater base, there’s some excellent set pieces to experience in Zombie Army 4’s campaign.
Shoot to Kill
With a mixture of different enemies to battle, each with their own unique attack patterns and weaknesses, Zombie Army 4 also adds small gameplay systems to keep the combat from being a simple point and shoot.
For one, chaining attacks gives players the opportunity to unleash awesome slow motion sniper shots or unrelenting shotgun blasts to cut down sizable chunks of enemies in a short span of time. Players are also given the opportunity to grab small slithers of health by killing zombies in an up close and personal manner by using melee.
These extra layers of combat mean that players and up to three other friends can employ a degree of tactiction and planning when mindlessly slaughtering undead nazis for hours on end.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is a great continuation of a genre that has fallen by the wayside in recent years. Filling the void of the unlikely Left 4 Dead 3, Zombie Army 4: Dead War gives players everything they could want in a game about putting bullets in zombie nazis. And while the game’s story might be silly and the combat beautifully gory, the game does offer enough in terms of variety to keep things interesting and varied for players that want to coordinate their attacks with teammates and do their best to survive.
