Exciting Zombie Co-op GameBlackou__t | Dec. 6, 2014 | See all Blackou__t's reviews »
In my personal opinion, this zombie survival co-op game is the most entertaining of its kind. There is an interesting character leveling system available which would please any sort of apocalypse go-er be it with melee weapons, snipers, or shotguns. Eerie level designs and frightening zombies make this game a blast also, delivering enough scares to want to work together. This game is heavy on the co-op so if you're decide to stray from the group, you're as good as dead. This game is also supported by steam workshop, making this game incredibly more satisfying as you can download user-created levels from themes ranging from Lord of the Rings to Portal 2, along with interesting "escape the room" user created levels which give an entirely new gameplay experience if you're tired of just killing zombies. It is difficult to make a server to play this game online however, but once you can figure it out or if you're simply having a lan party, this game is definitely the way to go!

The game is really fun. Guns are great and classes are nicely varied. The game can be very hard if you choose it to be, but also easy. Single player is much harder than multi-player, and I think multi-player is really how you should play. The game is not perfect, but it's a fun time when just wanting to play with a group of friends.

I get bored often, and this game gives me something to do. It's simple, and that what makes it good. What do you do? You shoot zombies. usually I don't like zombie games, but this one is an exception. It's just a good shooting games to shoot the time by. My only problem with the game is that there isn't a crosshair or a marker in the middle of the screen like I've gotten used to in first-person shooters. (You'll likely memorize it very quickly if actually aim.)
A zombie shoot fest that will keep you entertained!Stardust01FTW | Oct. 24, 2014 | See all Stardust01FTW's reviews »
Killing floor is a first person shooter that takes place in a zombie apocalypse. Killing floor is a game that focuses mostly on Co op than solo. I find this game a lot more fun with friends than to play by yourself. It's a easy to learn game and not hard to play. I find myself relying on my friend to heal me while I was shooting the zombies. The game may look like a generic boring, wave based zombie game, but I assure you, it is more fun than it looks. The game kept me on my toes throughout all of the matches since you can get swarmed and surrounded so easily if you're not paying attention. The game has two game modes, objective and survival mode. The game also has a perk system with each perk specializing in their own little category. The game also has special zombies that will keep the game challenging and fun. The cons that I can think about are the fact that the really good weapons are dlc's and most of the characters are dlc. But it is still a game worth every penny that you spend.
Zombie Co-Op Shooter Done Rightcptmold | Oct. 19, 2014 | See all cptmold's reviews »
94/100. A FREAKIN' 94. I don't make that kind of rating sparingly, only for the best of the best do I rate a game in the 90's.
Well, it's like if an indie developer woke up and said "hey, I want to make a zombie shooter," except this time, it was done right. Tripwire's KF deserves every bit of praise it gets.
You've got 15 blocks of weight you can carry and a trader opens every round to sell weapons. You've got 60 seconds (on Normal) to get to the trader and buy something before it closes and the next wave begins, meaning you can't just camp in the same area the whole time.
You've got a med-syringe you can use to heal yourself and teammates, but it has to recharge every time you use it and you won't be able to shoot while using it. You've also got a welder that can keep a door shut until the zombies do enough damage to break the weld. If you keep your welder on the door, you can keep it shut for a little longer, but eventually there might be enough zeds at the door to get through your door.
Then, you've got a variety of classes that get perks related to their weapons. Sharpshooters will get more out of snipers, pistols, etc. while a Commando reloads assault rifles faster and can spray down a hallway with a lot less recoil. Aside from those classes, you've got a support, a medic, a berserker, and more.
There's plenty of wave-by-wave maps, and as of last Summer there's 3 objective-based maps as well. Combined with Steam workshop, you can download custom maps and get even more out of your purchase.
Running on Unreal Engine 2, it's well-optimized and has graphics that get the job done but can run on a netbook. Overall, this is definitely a worthwhile buy and deserves to be a PC staple title. I'm still waiting for Killing Floor 2, which has been shown to have some of the best gore and animations seen in recent games.
Great Co-opvikas8395 | Sept. 5, 2014 | See all vikas8395's reviews »
The most AND BEST zombie co-op post apocalypse game. I can't describe how UNDERRATED Killing Floor is. It keeps you on the end of your nerves as you learn more strategies (like staying together with your team the whole time). Unlike other games like Left 4 Dead 2, this is a more strategic one, and a lot of teamwork is required. Playing with voice comm is very effective. Conserve your ammo, and play on!
Is Killing Floor just another zombie game?Bombolz | Sept. 4, 2014 | See all Bombolz's reviews »
Right off the bat, the answer to that question is, possibly. Let me explain.
Killing Floor essentially has 2 game modes to choose from; Objective or Wave.
Objective mode requires the player(s) to complete several tasks to continue, with each task complete, there is a short break in between to purchase new gear from the money gained after killing the zombies. Each task will have zombies, so there aren't any puzzle tasks or such as far as I can see. This makes objective mode very much like Left 4 Dead, except it provides a much more arcade atmosphere. At the end of every objective mode there will always be a final boss(es) to kill which further emphasizes the arcade feeling.
Wave mode is essentially what it sounds like, a very basic and simple arcade mode where zombies come in waves and after each wave players are given a small times to purchase new equipment with the money made from killing the zombies.
Killing Floor is very much an arcade zombie shooter, and horror doesn't even get a say, it's not scary, the most you will get is a small jump from turning around a dark corner and see a zombie in your face.
By now I've probably mentioned arcade several times now. This game is very much an zombie shooter arcade game, now don't be mislead as this isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you think about it, games nowadays are very different from arcade shooters, and Killing Floor delivers, for that matter, there were a lot of arcade zombie games in the past but they were all too old. Moving on, Killing Floor offers 2 experiences of play, Co-op and single player. Co-op is generally something that is more fun to play with friends rather than some randoms, although it still offers a nice play session. Singleplayer offers a entirely different atmosphere, and you always expect a zombie behind you as there is no one to cover your back. Over time, singleplayer gets boring extremely quick and most of the missions on normal difficulty or higher are usually to hard for a single player to win. Over time, like all arcade games, Killing Floor will get repetitive, and while I don't see myself playing this every day, it's definitely some fun whenever I hop onto the game, however often that may be.
The game's visuals are very good, especially considering how long this game has been out, although some may be frustrated with the grainy screen. The audio is usually just some instrumental metal, which fits with the arcade gameplay.
Killing floor does offer a class system which freshens things once you get bored of one class. Each class has their own benefits and experience, where each class levels up by doing different tasks. For example, the medic would level up from healing others (healing yourself with the syringe does not count making this a very difficult class to level as a solo player).
Ultimately, Killing Floor isn't something entirely new but a combination of past arcade shooters and modern day shooters. It offers great co-op gameplay, but it does get repetitive after a while. As for the price, I think it's definitely worth a pick up at $20, especially if your friends are also considering to get it as well.
Never gets old.LautaroCompleX | Aug. 25, 2014 | See all LautaroCompleX's reviews »
This game is one of those games you never get bored of, mainly because of its social aspect. This is a game you can play with friends and have endless new experiences because it adapts to the way you want to play it. You can either form an assault team, you can take shelter and cover each other's backs, and so on and so forth. Its potential is huge, and the laughs and the thrill is just never-ending.
A great game to play with friendseduardXD | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all eduardXD's reviews »
Killing Floor is a survival game where a variety of mutants will try to kill us. The fun is concentrated in the cooperative mode, because we have to help each other unless we want monsters surround us easily. A normal game is divided into waves that progressively increase in difficulty until the final wave where we must beat the patriarch, the boss of the game. The game offers many maps, weapons and costumes to wear. It also incorporates steam workshop, so we can download a large amount of mods easily. Its graphics are acceptable, the soundtrack consists in heavy metal and its price is affordable, so you will find a lot of people playing continuously. I recommend it to people who want a fun cooperative experience.
Awesome Multiplayer gamelajvjjajajaaaa | July 31, 2014 | See all lajvjjajajaaaa's reviews »
Killing Floor is first-person zombie shooter game. It's more for a co oparetive gameplay than singleplayer. There are waves after waves and you have to survive all of theme. Kill as much zombies ass possible to earn cash and to open the trader to buy weapons and armor. The trader is open for a minute so so go fast. There are tons of zombies, weak ones and really strong ones which can reap you apart. There are 10 waves + 11 where is the boss Patriarch. He have rocked launcher and chain gun which takes so much damage. He can also go invisible or melee you with his stomach. You can choose from 7 perks.They have unique powers like to take bigger melee damage, to get bigger headshot damage and more fire power. And also when you hold lighter things you run faster. As for the zombies there are several the basic one clot,the second is gorefast that are really fast and crowlers which jump a lot.Sirens are nasty screamers. There is stalkers to become invisible and husks can shoot energy balls from the cannon on there hands. The last two are the strongest Scrake with big chainsaw and the Fleshpound is something big that angers and kills you in a second. Good luck with this.
Run,Hide,Seek and destroy zombies game.hateah | July 23, 2014 | See all hateah's reviews »
If you'll take the game, buy it for the multiplayer. The multiplayer is amazing, there are few classes between you can choose, each class has specified weapon and every class has it requirements for the ugprades, like make 10 000 headshots and etc. It's amazing to feel the gameplay in that game if you hit the correct server. There are 10 waves, at the last wave you'll meet the Patriarch which is the strongest boss and can 1 hit kill you if you are not carefull enough.
Underrated Co-op FPSTPCGorillaMunch | July 19, 2014 | See all TPCGorillaMunch's reviews »
Killing Floor is an amazing game that rivals the more well known Left 4 Dead games. It has a similarity in that it is infinitely more enjoyable when played multiplayer rather than single player. To be successful the team needs to work together to survive hordes of deadly creatures using a wide variety of weapons. Each player can select a class that will allow them to specialize in something such as melee or explosives.
The game is constantly updated and annual events still take place further increasing the enjoyment. The game has almost endless replay-ability with a huge number of maps to play on including maps created by the community. If you are the type of person that doesn't enjoy playing games with other people this game is probably not for you as the single player is a bit lacking. Overall the game is very enjoyable and I would recommend it.
Kept me playing for hours everyday!CrysisX | July 18, 2014 | See all CrysisX's reviews »
Killing Floor is a great co-op games with friends as it requires teamwork to finish a long game. There's a few type of zeds in game which some requires a specific class to kill them quickly before they cause a massive amount of damage to your teammate. There are 6 perks to choose from and they take quite a while to level up but not too long to make you not want to play the game. As you play the harder difficulties you will realize that zeds move faster and have a higher amount of HP which is quite challenging. Normal difficulty might seem overwhelming at first but as you progress you'll learn a few tips and tricks which helps a lot. Even though this game is a few years old you will have no problems finding servers with people in it. I would definitely recommend this game to anyone! If you plan on purchasing any DLCs just grab the Community Weapon Pack 1 & 2 since the rest are not really useful.
Amazing COOP gameTBlackWolfT | July 11, 2014 | See all TBlackWolfT's reviews »
This is one of those games you look at and expect it to be good, but it's even better than you'd expect! Killing Floor is best played COOP with friends or if you don't have friends to play with, play solo or with random online players. There are two modes you can play Objective and original Killing Floor. Original Killing Floor is survival and Objective you have to complete a series of objectives to win. This game is very challenging at times, but has many ways of overcoming that. Choose where you want to hold out, what weapons you want, even guide enemies to a specific entrance. With a variety of enemies and maps, this game never gets old. I suggest you pick up a copy as soon as you can! You won't regret it.
Pure Survival Awesomeness884okeoJ | July 2, 2014 | See all 884okeoJ's reviews »
The Killing Floor may only do one thing, but it does that one thing very, very well. Tripwire interactive has created a great wave-based horror game that can rival Left 4 Dead 2 in terms of pure fun. The graphics are passable, but the soundtrack is great.
What Killing Floor does better than Left 4 Dead 2 is gameplay. The way guns handle in Killing Floor creates a much more visceral feel than Left 4 Dead. However, the main problem with Killing Floor is lack of variety in game modes. While some mods can fix this, Left 4 Dead 2 has much more variety in game types. Although Killing Floor sports incredible wave based survival, some extra variety could have helped the title compete more. If you're someone who enjoys survival based games, Killing Floor is a great choice.
Nice survival COOP gamekawette | June 16, 2014 | See all kawette's reviews »
When i started to play this game, i thought that i should play first alone to get used with the gameplay but that was quite hard ... So I gave up the game for a while.
Then I saw that Playfire was rewarding for making achievements of this game so I played again, in Coop this time. And here i saw the potential of the game ! It's a really good game and it's very funny and better to play coop with strangers or friends.
There is a good replayability with all the maps, the dificulty and the challenge (mutator mode). It's not like Left 4 dead 2, in my opinion it is more realistic.
So if you want to take some good time and/or you like survival games you should buy it.
Killing Floor: The Ultimate "Gaming with Friends" GamePredatorDrone18 | June 8, 2014 | See all PredatorDrone18's reviews »
Killing Floor is a fun and well-made game about killing mutated creatures. The game has an excellent class system, as well as a great leveling system for the classes. You can join games with multiple other people to help you with all of your specimen killing needs. The game, although more of a "murder everything in sight" game rather than one involving strategy, is infinitely more fun and easier with a group of friends. Teamwork can become vital, as sometimes a friend having your back in a shootout or tossing you an extra wad of cash for armor can be the difference between a win and a loss. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes first person shooters, zombie games, or pretty much anything. It's completely worth the money, and you should definitely pick it up if you haven't already.
A Unique Specimen, Indeed...WolfeClawz | June 7, 2014 | See all WolfeClawz's reviews »
Killing Floor has evolved from the old, loveable mod that it started off as into the gritty, blood-covered standalone you see before you! With Unreal graphics and unique, varied gunplay, KF truly is the pinnacle of gorey, atmospheric first person shooters.
You're given the choice of multiple classes, ranging from Sharpshooter to Medic and Assault to Firebug, giving you access to different weapons for different prices with the addition of buffs and faster reload speeds. Killing Floor introduces a variety of messed up, horrific creatures ranging from the basic Clot to the raging Flesh Pound, so you'll need to work with others to be effective against them all.
Speaking of working together, I can highly recommend that you have friends that you can play Killing Floor with, as it's the best way to enjoy the game. That, and it can be relatively difficult to do alone without teamwork. Each class has it's own benefits, so mixing and matching with other people to create the ultimate team is almost essential.
Killing Floor has taken away hundreds of hours of my life, so maybe you should start catching up. I give it a 95/100.
One of the top games to play with friendsmirta000 | May 19, 2014 | See all mirta000's reviews »
Every time when there's a lot of my friends online and we are deciding what to play this is one of the suggestions. Because the game is fast paced, fun and hosts up to 6 people. Just like in Left 4 Dead you're fighting zombies, except that in here you're fighting waves of them and after a wave you can run to the shop and buy more guns. The shop appears in a random place, so getting to it in that short break in between waves is a challenge in itself.
The hilarity that ensues is priceless. Perhaps it will be a scare moment when a zombie jumps on you, perhaps it will be laughter about your friend getting attacked while not expecting it, but it will surely stir up some sort of emotion in you.
Warning - the game is only as good as the company that you play with is. As a solo experience it's not that wonderful. A fun thing to play with friends though.
Great multiplayer survival game!Furrek | May 15, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
This is a review that I made for this game on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/1250/
One of the greatest multiplayer survival game I have played. The things I like in this game: - maps! There are plenty of different maps in game, even more fan-made. Never played fan-made ones because I still have much fun on officials. Every map have pros and cons, what I really love to do is finding the best place to defend yourself. This way, in 2 player team, we managed to beat all maps on the suicidal difficulty, which is really hard to do in small squad. - perks! The best thing in multiplayer games is making your character the way it fits you game style. Do you love to play as medic? No problem! There is perk that will allow you to buy medic guns cheaper and you will be able to heal other players. You love handguns? Or maybe you want to slice some head using katana? There you go! There are 6 perks in total, so i'm sure every player will find the one for self. - atmosphere in game! It sure is dark, sometimes scary, music fits great. You will find yourself many times troubled seeing how many monsters there are left and how low are you on health or ammo, running away or fighting to the last drop of blood.
I was always more fan of survival horrors that are not focused on fast paced action. If you are also one, you should really check Killing Floor out - the game is not expensive, you don't need to pay attention to the DLCs: all of them are just additional characters or some weapons but trust me, you don't really need them to enjoy game to the fullest.
Really fun.Dyzzles | May 5, 2014 | See all Dyzzles's reviews »
Although the game has it's fair share of problems, like the somewhat clunky movement or the overall speed which happens to be noticeably slow, it's still a really fun game that'll definitely give you and your friends your money's worth. The game isn't really made for solo play, so make sure you have a couple of friends there with you to take on the horde of monsters! It's also worth mentioning that the game tends to have events that usually feature some sort of re-skin of the monsters and adds new achievements for you to complete (They most likely give you a reward for completing them). Graphics wise, the game is outdated, although that's one of the minor things that shouldn't matter to most.
Have fun playing if you do end up purchasing!
Kind of fun if others feel like playing with yough123098uuu | Feb. 6, 2014 | See all gh123098uuu's reviews »
Well unfortunately this game's stock appearance is kind of dull, and bad, but that can be overcome a bit by steam workshop content, SweetFX, and things like that so much as you can with things like that. (There aren't hd texture mods for this) This game is fun if you have friends to team with, and in my opinion, if you aren't doing the same map over and over.
There isn't really much of a learning curve to this, so anybody can pick up and play this. You kill things, basically, go to a trader between rounds, rinse and repeat until you make it to a boss at the end. Hopefully you survive.
A Test of Teamworkxiluxpain | Jan. 24, 2014 | See all xiluxpain's reviews »
While generally, Killing Floor receives an overall average score, it is actually unjustified without truly embracing what the developers desired.
The moment you play Killing Floor, you find yourself easily swarmed, easily surrounded, easily annihilated. Why? The reason is simple. Killing Floor beyond beginner mode was geared for teamwork. There is, without a doubt, no way you can start this game and be good without a team.
Killing Floor has a unique spawning system where the zombies will always spawn local to the players. They will specifically target areas that are not covered and work to surround you relentlessly. Unless you are a professional, have around a hundred hours on your belt, a level 5 minimal (out of 6 levels) character, you will not survive solo.
To break it down, the classes are divided into Field Medic, Support Specialist, Sharpshooter, Commando, Berserker, Firebug and Demolition.
Those who love to play support roles, Field Medic and obviously Support Specialist are for you. You will either heal your allies while killing what they can't, or wielding doors shut strategically as the Support Specialist.
Sharpshooters and Commando have their own specialized targets. These two make a good pair in taking out the strongest zombies together. What a Sharpshooter sniper cannot kill in a single blow, you can count on the Commando to finish off with their ability to see invisible targets and the zombie health bars.
In addition, Support Specialist is also the shotgun spray king. Along with Firebug that causes damage over time, and the destructive Demolition's firepower, you will have the perfect selection of crowd controllers who take out all the weak ones as the second line of defense.
As for your first line, who else can do a better job than the Berserker? Well... except for the unexpected tank, the Field Medic. While the Berserker is an excellent melee unit that cannot be pinned down easily, the medic, when armored, can resist death from even the boss for a good 10-15 seconds head on while your ally may be mowed down in a second.
Killing Floor still does seasonal events, gives special unlocks, and continually adds new maps and game modes. You will not be disappointed.
Be warned, Killing Floor is not a game to be played alone. Personally, I highly recommend a team of at least 4 individuals. By mid levels, you can go with 3. Later on, you can even solo. But as a team, you can take on even the most biggest, baddest of zombies on the worst difficulties.
Can you ditch your soloing habits from the world of FPS and adapt to the teamwork requirements of Killing Floor? Or will you be the first one eaten alive...

A good game i'll probably never get tired of playing.It's really good and playing with friends is very fun.When you start a game you are dropped off in a map and you have to fight zombies and specimens which are tougher infected that are hard to kill.There are also these almost invisible specimens that will probably get you at some point in a match.In a match you have to kill these zombies and specimens to get money and buy new weapons, there are different waves of zombies and every new one gets tougher and harder than the previous ones.If you are looking for a good MP game to play this one is for you.You won't regret it.

This game is very unique and fun... for multiplayer. You're thrust into a world of zombies and death and you and a few others must battle to survive. It's a very fun multiplayer experience with various maps and weapons. However, this game lacks decent graphics, stability, and can seem a bit stiff at times. It can also get repetitive and boring, and your level doesn't seem to really matter or effect you in a large way. But if you're willing to cooperate and use teamwork with friends, you'll have a fun time.
GORE GALORE!YugTaht | Nov. 26, 2013 | See all YugTaht's reviews »
If you like to shoot wave after wave of zombies, this is the game for you. If you like to shoot wave after wave of zombies with a group of friends, this is the game for you and your friends. Teams go up to 8 (I think? It’s a lot) and the name of the game is zombie survival for 10 waves. Zombies get progressively harder and more aggressive and there are abundant classes to choose from as a character. Burn the zombies to a crisp as a pryo or be the hero and keep your team’s health up as a medic. The controls work as any FPS would work, although the game motion feels kind of slow. There is no running, you’re default set to be running and even then it seems pretty slow. There IS NO CROSSHAIR, you’ve been warned. Straight up, looking down the barrel through the iron sights so it is something you have to get used to and adapt. No campaign mode, just straight survival either solo or with a team. Great fun if you’ve got a bunch of mates to play with but if not, there are a bunch of servers online with random, friendly public servers anyways. Pick it up on sale if you see it, probably next Halloween for sure.
Great game if you're bringing friendsStuman31 | Nov. 25, 2013 | See all Stuman31's reviews »
After about a 50 hour stint in Left 4 Dead back in the day my friends and I wanted to find another game to keep the momentum going, and so we took a gamble on Killing Floor, and it went above and beyond. The biggest issue we had with Left 4 Dead was how long you had to be committed to a session, as there is no way to save mid game. Killing Floor was a solution to this, while it has no save, the length of a single game is at a much more casual level. And while a small group of my friends had racked up that about 50 hour playtime in Left 4 Dead, almost my entire friends list ended up with 150+ hours in Killing Floor, with some up over the 500 hours mark. The game isnt the prettiest thing you will ever see. But its unusal 6 player team and tight group coop makes it a great way to spend time with friends. The fact you dont necessarily have to move much, and can bunker down means that even extremely causal gamers can join in and not be a determent to the team. I will say however, if you were thinking of getting this to play on your own, it really wouldnt stand up. Though it does have single player modes, the game only holds up under multiplayer conditions
An awesome game to be played only on MultiplayerRedFrix | Nov. 18, 2013 | See all RedFrix's reviews »
Killing Floor might be one of the generic, zombie shooter out there like the others. But unlike every other games, it actually includes a well-executed teamwork! Closing doors while others cover you, killing zombies on every corner while advancing... That's what makes a zombie game look cool.
There's a quite variety of classes on the game, each one with it's own perks and benefits. Recommended to atleast have a medic in order to survive the chaos.
Overall the one flaw I can find is that there's a lot of DLC which seems useless, and probably some glitches you can found by playing the game.
Zombies, Zombies, Zombies! Come on boys, its killing time!Raggzie | Oct. 31, 2013 | See all Raggzie's reviews »
Zombies, whether you hate them or love them we can all agree that the undead is best when dead.. err.. re-dead.
Play with friends or play alone and kill as many zombies as you can in this fun zombie hoard survival game. The further into the round you get, the harder it is to survive. Don't fret though, because the farther you progress the more monies you make! And the more money you have the bigger gun you can buy, and the bigger gun you can buy the more zombies you can kill! Bloody brilliant!
There are multiple DLCs filled with new guns and character skins. You can kill zombies as a giant chicken or as a commando. It's your choice. However you chose to appear, headshots are your greatest chance for downing the enemy. After all, what are zombies without their Braiiinnzzzzz!
Hats off to the developers of Killing Floor. I highly recommend this game to everyone.
More than the sum of its partsgwynplaine | Oct. 23, 2013 | See all gwynplaine's reviews »
Killing Floor is very old school - the requirements are low, the engine is old, it doesn't tell you much about the most efficient way to play it, and it's stuffed full of gameplay and mechanics.
The gunplay is top notch and very satisfying - all the weapons feel unique and have a satisfying kick to them.
I have over 350 hours in the game and it gives you a lot of variety to play with, especially if you play on harder difficulties. Just to mention a bit of it there's double hitboxes, run and gun (kiting) vs camping, speed kill techniques, melee locks and different kinds of stuns and a bunch of different classes. For a co-op shooter, there is A LOT of internalize and learn.
The only problem is it's kind of oblique and you need to really dig through a wiki and look at how other players play it to get the most out of it.
Fantastic game, only 1 fault.....ncorbin | Sept. 12, 2013 | See all ncorbin's reviews »
This game has some of the best feel to guns ever, the concept is simple but great and the setting are all very different. It is a absolutely fantastic shooting game that I would say everyone should own! except for one huge flaw........the net coding. There is none.......I have 13 friends who own this game and 9 of us can literally spend over 30 mins before we get into a online game which after a few days just became tedious and now this only gets used for lan gaming. there are fixes and for the majority it works great but the lack of effort this many years on to fix this just broke (what could have been my favourate fps) forever.

Killing Floor is one of the best co-op games out there, with a minimum of 6 player co-op, and go up to atleast 36 players. Theres also a multiplayer game mode called Gun Game where its team deathmatch. Tons of weapons and maps to choose from to not keep you bored. If you got lots of friends you play games with, this is a must for a intense game experience. Only downside is that the graphics will seem a little outdated compared to current games.
A zombie shooter that enforces teamworkAlcatraz_Inmate | Sept. 10, 2013 | See all Alcatraz_Inmate's reviews »
Tired of playing the same zombie shooters again and again... and again. Today the market is full of zombie shooters that are more or less the same in nature. But Killing Floor stands above those generic shooters as something new and refreshing. Killing Floor is a game that heavily emphasizes teamwork above all else. There are 6 classes to choose from each with their own unique talents and specialties. Not each class can handle certain zeds very well at all, this is where teamwork comes into play. Take for example the siren or husk, you don't want to be fighting these zeds as a zerker (a close ranged melee fighter class). You want a shrpshooter to deal with these guys. There are multiple types of enemies that are capable of different things that are difficult, if not impossible to take down as a lone gunner. You stick with your team and work together to make it through the rounds and fight the deadly patriarch. If you have some friends to play with and enjoy decapitating zombies with unique skills and guns, this is the game for you.

Killing floor mixes the best of all games: Violence, slow motion, explosions, interesting and funny characters, miscellaneous extras which you can interact with and the list goes on! Killing Floor is a game which mature gamers can definitely enjoy, and the fact that it has co-op too, makes it 50% more awesome! Alone: This game is good. With friends: This game is GREAT! If you don't have this game, I can't say much more than: You don't know what you're missing. After you've played this, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Grab a friend, grab some lovely, big, guns.Jirron | Aug. 23, 2013 | See all Jirron's reviews »
This game features a somewhat stiff, strange feel to the movement. The voice acting is horrific. Graphics leave a little to be desired. Why does this game get an above average score then?
For what it's worth, despite the shortcomings, it's a very endearing experience, bad voice acting also endearing, and a hell of a lot of fun with friends. You pick from a number of classes, from Firebug to Medic, and fight off increasingly difficult waves of undead monstrosities.
The gameplay is pretty simple, with an equally simple class levelling system that goes along with it, but it's enough to keep you entertained if these kinds of co-op experiences are your thing.
I cannot recommend this game for a single player experience, unless you really REALLY like playing horde modes solo.. The game isn't for everyone, but if you've got a couple friends to play with, give it a go. It'll keep you entertained for a while.

You fight through a horde of zombies in rounds.In between rounds, you can purchase new weapons to deal more damage to the zombies and get through the rounds faster.Even though other weapons come as DLC, the game is still enjoyable. To enhance your experience, it is recommended that you play with friends.You should totally pick up this game.
Solid GameCCPirate | Aug. 19, 2013 | See all CCPirate's reviews »
If you're a person who is looking for a survival horror game with some real challenge, then Killing Floor is what you're looking for. Aside from the absolutely glorious amounts of gore and death, the game mechanic is teamwork, and you won't be able to survive without it. There is a good amount of weapons for each of six classes that you can purchase with in game money as you go through the level. There are skin packs and weapon packs available for you to purchase also, but not essential to the game (I believe the weapon packs are just gold/steampunk reskins, not new weapons.)
If I had to have one gripe with this game, it would have to be with the sense of progression. This game begs for more customization of your character, and of your weapons. It begs for some sort of ranking system other than the levels for each class that you go through. If such features were to be added into this game, it would get the 100 is deserves.
Like Zombie Shooters? Here's your Gameharpiegirl | Aug. 13, 2013 | See all harpiegirl's reviews »
Killing Floor is a unique(as far as it goes with zombie shooters) zombie fps.
The controls are a little different from your regular FPS, first of all. It may take a couple rounds to get used to it. Second of all, the game play is quite different itself. For example, everyone's weapons are reset at the beginning of ever game. From then on, you make money for that game and use it to progressively buy new weapons, armor and ammo until the end of that respective game.
The amount of diversity in terms of game types, weapons, outfits and zombies overall makes it a great game, especially if you want to try out zombie shooters for the first time.
British Left 4 Dead... Except BetterPeppaJ6 | Aug. 11, 2013 | See all PeppaJ6's reviews »
If you love the survival horror genre, I would absolutely suggest picking this one up. Basically, the premise here is that these "Zeds" (the zombie-like creatures within the game) are failed military experiments wreaking havoc across the UK. Players are assigned with the task of eliminating these creatures under the role of special agents dropped into these Zed hot spots. The typical game progresses in waves of Zeds, each wave ending with a trip to a weapons trader who will move from safehouse to safehouse during the progression of each round in order to keep the Zeds on the run. Players choose from one of seven different classes (or Perks, as they're referred to in the game), each including weapon specialization "perks" for picking the class, which include Medic (armor/speed/healing), Sharpshooter (handguns/sniper rifles), Firebug (flamethrower/fire resist), Demolitions Expert (basically anything that explodes), Support (shotguns/welding), Commando (grenades/stealth sight/assault rifles), and Berserker (melee weapon-using close quarters combat specialist). However, your class does not restrict which weapons you can use within the game. It simply gives a boost to your ability with the weapons which fall under that Perk's specialty. Also, each Perk is improved through a leveling EXP system. The cool thing about this is that you can level any Perk at any time, depending on your current weapon. EX: Hacking Zeds with a melee weapon will increase your Berserker EXP, shooting off heads in the distance will warrant Sharpshooter EXP, lobbing a grenade into a group will award Commando EXP, and healing a fellow teammate will increase Medic EXP. All in all, this game is great for online and solo play, and I personally have almost 200 hours in on the game. Plus, it's on Steam! Steam gamers rejoice!

Despite dated graphics, Killing Floor is a game you come back to again and again, even years after release to kill some zombies. The servers are still full and the developers continuously release new content and run special events for the holidays. If you are tired of running through scripted crescendos and just want to kill wave after wave of zombies with your friends, this is a game to buy. Play at night wearing headphones, shoot anything that moves, stick with your teammates, and you just might survive.

Survival game that will last for hours!khryon | July 28, 2013 | See all khryon's reviews »
This is a great buy, especially if you're a lover of the horror survival genre. With different perks such as the Sharpshooter, Berserker, Medic and Support Specialist (just to name a few), you'll have a wide assortment of playstyles. Well worth the price, it's a steal for the dozens of hours of enjoyment you'll get.
The only real downside of the game is it's aging graphics - it's not next-gen but it does it job (since it's release in 2010). However, if you can look past that, it's a terrific game that will keep you entertained for hours on end.

You will really like this game for it's mechanics. Every weapon you buy is unique and different from the other. You really can feel every weapon you wield. The game is pretty challenging and I reccommend playing it with friends. The only problem I have with it is when you play duo the begginer difficulty is too easy but the normal difficulty is too hard for duo, so the game force you to play with other people which is good. You will get that feeling that everyone matter and you will give your best to survive and save your teammates. Game gave no crosshair to the challenge so it has nice realistic feeling for weapons. I really like it for it's mechanics and you should deffinetly check it out if you are looking for a zombie game!

The coop aspect of killing floor is top notch. It is a frantic, fast paced and down right fun time when you have 6 people trying to survive an onslaught of enemies. While this game can be played in single player, it can become monotonous and boring. An area where this game shines is the gunplay! the guns all feel fun to play with and sound like they should, so it feels really satisfying when you shoot at things. The developers are also great and have been supporting this game for years now and have even just recently added a new game mode!
Pick this game up as soon as you can! also grab a couple other copies so you can play with friends!

This game is an incredibly fun zombie survival experience which is incredibly enjoyable to play with friends, and even by yourself. The multiplayer will keep you hooked for the long haul, and it rivals Left 4 Dead in term of zombie shooting fun. It's cheaper, too, so if you get a chance to get it you definitely should if you want fun zombie multiplayer.

Killing floor is all about teamwork,survival, and caution. Skill and knowledge of the game is neccesary in order to win or at least to survive. While the graphics might be outdated the gameplay is fun as hell. You and other players must survives waves of zombies ( usually the are 10 waves ) which ends with a boss fight that might get all of you killed. the best part the game lets you pick what kind of "perk" you want to play or in other words what kind of weapons and speciality you want to play with. the game also support steamworkshop which adds to the game alot of great mods. Killing floor isn't an easy game and it take some time to understand and enjoy the game, after all even the weakest zombie can suprise you and kill you.

This game gets insanely fun the more players you have, the environment fits perfectly with the scenarios. The engine is fantastic (still) and the guns you can get are superb. There is nothing better than smashing your mates in score and building strategies to take down those zombies. Prepare for quite an experience jump in upping the difficulty, they become much more powerful.

Killing floor is a multiplayer focused zombie "wave-FPS". You kill a wave of zombies, rest period, another wave of zombies etc.
The combat is spectacular, the majority of guns are nice and meaty with a good "feel" and there is an element of challenge. Theres a nice selection of "class" choices to keep up variety, although leveling them does take a lot of grinding.
If you play by yourself you probably won't have fun for long, but grab a friend and head into a server and prepare for some zombie slaughter.

I got bored of Left 4 Dead 2 pretty quickly, even though it was so highly rated. I reluctantly tried Killing Floor after a friend recommended it to me and was pleasantly surprised. It may be rough around the edges, but the gunplay is very satisfying. It's exhilarating to make headshots in this game, not only because of the splatter of blood it makes out of the zombie heads, but because the weapons just feel meaty and powerful. Fun to play, funner with friends, highly recommended!

Killing Floor is one of my favourite games ever. This game is a mix between a tower defense and an action FPS cooperative. When you start to play, your character and his weapons are very weak, but some hours later, and with the help of perks, you will become stronger and powerful. There are a lot of weapons and seven kind of roles. The graphics are very good and you don't need a good computer to run the game smoothly. The gamplay is frenetic. You must to kill an hordes of zombies. The hordes will be harder and harder...It's fun to play with unknown people but it will be more funnier with friends.

This game, despite its poor voice acting, and somewhat outdated feeling movement, is a great jaunt in zombie games. It is regularly updated, be it by the game developers or fellow gamers' mods, and has a great system that rewards specializing in a class for a long period of time. Not only this, it rewards you with a very satisfying slow-down (for all of your teammates as well) when you make a tricky headshot.

The game is HARDBynn | June 10, 2013 | See all Bynn's reviews »
Killing Floor can be helluva challenge by itself. It's nice to see a game with so much variants, a great arsenal, a selection of 6 perks with their own pros and cons, and of course, the fun of playing with a bunch of friends, trimming hordes of monsters, and finalizing with a big fella that likes to shoot rockets and a chaingun at you. But the thing that kinda gets me on an edge is the fact that (not counting "easy", 'cause it's really easy), the game can be really ahrd and treacherous: tryingto hole up in one place can be your doom, zeds pinning you down for others to feast on you, and the usual players that try to "Rambo" on their own. The combination of hard dificulties and the Perk Leven system can make you ragequit, but I feel it's worth the pain overall: Fun, blood, big guns, brittish accents, a bunch of misfits poking zeds with blades... I lvoe this game, one of my favourite shooters of all times.

Killing Floor is a zombie survival game. You fight waves of zombies and go to the in game shop in between waves. The shop changes it's location every time. There are loads of weapons that are loads of fun to use to blast your way through a zombie horde. The graphics are good but feel way too shiny and bright. There are a ton of maps in the game, and more are coming with updates. The mods in this game are amazing. The steam workshop makes it super easy to mod and get custom maps. Some of the custom maps are even better than the original. The music isn't the best but the gunshots and sound effects are nice. Where this game really shines is the co-op. Grab 5 other friends and play the hardest difficulty with 6 players and you will have a blast! The single player gets boring after a while but the co-op won't get boring for a long long time.

A very fun game to play in co-op. Don't get me wrong the graphics are not much to look at now since the game is old and it was an indie title to begin with but the gameplay is still very good and guarantied to give you a hell of a time. The gun mechanics are superb and you have a tone of customizing options available for your character. The only problem the game has at times when patches come up, it will mess up with the connection settings for multiplayer which in my case once i had to reinstall the game though that could not be a major problem for most. All in all a cheap and fun game.

One of the first pc games I got hooked on. Its basically like a bigger better version of call of duty's nazi zombie mode as you fight waves of various types of zombies. I haven't played much since they released more updates and dlc for a ton more weapons. but the first update they did which added the SCARMK17, a grenade launcher, and a couple of new weapons was pretty great and I can imagine the game being much better now. The leveling system for each class is what turned this game into an addiction of mine. leveling up a class gives you bonus attributes to the weapons in that class such as increased accuracy or damage for those specific weapons. On top of all this the lo-fi European look and feel of the game is very cool. I've never seen a game that looks like this, and for 20$ its definitely a must buy.

This is an awesome game as it contains everything you can wish for. There is no mandatory DLCs, there is different perks for whatever weapon you might like and the game holds many maps. The only bad thing with Killing floor is the amount of time it takes to level up your perks. The absolute best thing with the game is the co-op mode though. While playing with friends you get more mobs so won't think it becomes to easy neither.

Multiple classes, multiple weapons, multiple perks, holiday updates/themes, shoot 'em up, NOT linear, NOT mission-oriented, just an open zombie shoot 'em up. And it works. Guns are excellent and feel proper. Guns are sold and bought from a shop that keeps changing location each round which forces players not to camp but keep going on foot. Oh and did I mention your classes level up giving you new perks, cheaper weapons, higher damage, and awesome stuff like that? Yeah.
There's one problem though: The British accents.
Developers worth supportingbritishlad | May 10, 2013 | See all britishlad's reviews »
Thhis game is basically Left 4 Dead, without missions. You starton a map with other players (max 6) and kill a bunch of mutant zombie freak-type enemies. There's a trading shop at the end of every round on a map, there are 10 rounds. You get in-game currency while playing. You get more currency for how well you do in a given round so you can buy better weapons and whatnot. There's a number of different classes to choose from, such as a pyro who uses fire-based weapons, to a melee class, healing class, marksman (headshot) class. Bunch of different classes. Cool thing is they all start at level one when you're a beginner and you can level them up as you play them. As they level, you get better bonuses and bigger advantages.
The Biggest problem with this game is the graphics are dated and look pretty ugly to be honest. This game requires teamwork, and you can choose what difficulty you want to play on. Harder difficulties are very challenging and require teamwork. There's an ungodly amount of custom-made maps by players that are absolutely brilliant that you can play on as well. Also the voice acting is terrible and laughable but when you play this game you can tell it was intentional
Lotta DLC for this game. brand new one just came out which gives you
Simple game, but in this case simple is best. No story or missions or any crap like that at all. It's a great game and it's definitely worth the £14.99 price tag considering I have got 48 hours of fun out of this game.
Also whilst they do charge for extra skins (at a very cheap price) they released 7 new weapons and loads of new maps for free! It's nice to see game developers rewarding there fans rather than charging a ridiculous amount for dlc

This is a coop horde mode survival horror. It has a very good selection of guns, and it has different classes you can play in it, which have specializations in and of themselves. For example, the pyro gets cheaper fire weapons. This lets you focus with a set of weapons and really understand how they work better than just constantly jumping around weapons; but you can do that too. You can do whatever you want in this game, and it has so many maps to play on too.

Bit annoying to host a basic server, and some other nitpicks such as listen and dedicated server behaving differently, trader menu is a little cluttered these days, some achievements are currently bugged. It could use some more attention from the devs TWI to fix some long-standing issues. Otherwise, a blast to play and these are easily overlooked. Definitely worth picking up!

Killing Floor was released in 2009 but it's still one of the most played videogames on Steam, in the Top 50 of games more played each day.
I've been playing it since 2011's Christmas. At first I didn't like it too much, because I don't usually play horror games, but this one made me enjoy each minute of gameplay.
Some months later, I gifted a copy to 2 friends and we started playing all together. It became A LOT better. Killing tons of waves of zombies with 6 different classes, upgrades and more than 20 weapons; it's probably the best cooperative horror game for PC at the moment.
So if you and your friends are looking for a good multiplayer game; you should check this one.

killing floor has been a breath of fresh air from most of the modern games that are coming out. many people compare this game to left 4 dead but it is nothing like that. killing floor is original more than anything but the best part about it is that all of the aspects of this game have been done very well. it has a good map selection each one not like the other. i would say a reasonable amount of characters without the skin dlcs and an amazing gun selection from assaults to shotguns to even a few surprises. the lack of a story is what is keeping this from getting a higher score but i cant think of one good zombie survival game with a good story. best part of it all is the mods that people make. there are mods that add hours of fun plus the many countless hours you will have with this game. there are mods for dead space and aliens that make it a change of pace from the zombies. you could take this entire rich and fun experience online! making more fun with your friends

It sounds easy, but you'll constantly have zombies swarming all around you and if you're not careful you'll get overwhelmed quickly. Luckily you have a wide range of weapons and classes to help you take them down. As you play, you can rank up in your classes after completing set requirements, giving you even more advantages, you're going to need all you can get when you're playing on the higher difficulties. You don't have to worry about finding matches that much as it is quick and easy, Just hop on in and play! Plus the requirements for the game aren't that high, meaning even if your rig isn't that good, you should be fine. This game isn't just about killing zombies, but to upgrade yourself to be able to kill even more with ease. Simple, yet fun

I bought this game today and have been playing it since it is so great I can't stop playing it with my friend. You are sure to have a great time with this if your'e with a friend. The guns shoot great, enemies are challenging, and its easy to play. Killing floor is a must have for any PC gamer. Lack of story doesn't matter this game will blow your mind. All in all this game is a must buy especially for co op. I love this game and will be playing it for years to come. Buy this game it's a great deal!!!
One of the Best Co-Op Survivalsssjason | March 9, 2013 | See all ssjason's reviews »
Everything in this game is just fun, from scrambling to the gun dealer between rounds to fighting wave after wave of zeds. The boss fights are challenging, and some really require you to work as a team. The maps are well planned out, and the fan maps are amazing too. Most notably the mansion from the original Resident Evil. It also has Steam Workshop support filled with a ton of mods like a Dead Space mod. I would recommend this to anyone that likes survival games.
Best co-op survival!CrysisX | March 9, 2013 | See all CrysisX's reviews »
Killing Floor is one of the best survival game I have played. This game has a lot of maps and weapons which doesn't make you get bored of it easily. The environment in the game is well made though the graphics isn't that great. The gun sounds are good while the voice acting is bad but that shouldn't affect you too much. I must admit that some of the maps are quite challenging which requires two or more player. Overall, the game is pretty fun plus you can download tons of different maps from the Steam workshop. I would recommend this to anyone who's looking for a nice co-op FPS game!
The BEST Co-op gamesrie_zel | March 6, 2013 | See all rie_zel's reviews »
KF is the best co-op games that we've know, why? because this game is better than other zombie games. This game based on waves and limited resources (ammo), it just kinda like Tower Defense game, but this one is FPS game. Indeed this games is lack of story, but this game is fun and i really love it playing with my friend, one thing this game lacking is, it's kinda hard to host without proper network (i mean you do need some NAT setting / use dedicated server).
A survival game with mods, a workshop and updates.JMJqueseyo | Jan. 27, 2013 | See all JMJqueseyo's reviews »
This is the one game you should always play on normal or above and with teammates its 6 player co-op is great LOTS OF EVENTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS like 200? Game gets updated there are some promotional skins. Do not play this solo on beginner it will bore the crap out of you if you do that . 7 classes even after you reach level 6 it keeps recording your stats and marks progress, Demolitions, Support Specialist, Field Medic, Commando,Berserker,Sharpshooter and Firebug. On top of all of that there is an SDK for mappers, developers update the game for events and a Steam workshop. Defense Alliance is a mod for this so be sure to check it out. Did I mention you shoot things? Called zeds. Bottom line this game is great for its price.

This game is one of my favorite co-op games, spent over 700 hours killing zombies, had a really good time. If u dont have friends that own this game, the community is really great, I made lots of friends. I recommend playn online with friends, its really fun, single player can be really hard for new ones, and its no-fun.
You can expect lots of maps, achievements, weapons, updates etc if you buy it.
Jolly CooperationJray264 | Jan. 22, 2013 | See all Jray264's reviews »
So Left 4 Dead and Call of Duty Zombies had a baby. Does that sound appealing? If so, good. Because Killing Floor is this metaphorical baby. You and 5 friends (or random people) survive against waves of monsters on elaborate and well-structured maps. In between waves you can purchase new weapons such as the chainsaw or flamethrower. It should be noted that voice acting is beyond terrible. I found it endearing, but just a word of caution.
Great gun sounds, addicting gameplay, and a constant stream of new content every so often. What more do you want?
Survivalxydanus | Jan. 17, 2013 | See all xydanus's reviews »
Killing Floor is horror survival game that has many well designed levels. Basically Killing Floor is meant to be cooperative survival, so it needs at least 2 players to be any fun. Coop is up to six players, so some maps may be difficult to pass with fewer friends unless you drop down the difficulty. After few levels game gets bit repeatable since the only catch is to survive. Also all weapons may have been tested in those levels.
Nevertheless Killing Floor is fun game to play. Endless waves of zombies and zombie like creatures are always interesting enemy to be slayed.
Graphics are dark and atmospheric and level design is awesome. Especially Santa's Evil Lair was creepy map. There are much more maps to be downloaded from different sources.
Gets boring fastsYncz | Jan. 2, 2013 | See all sYncz's reviews »
Wave after wave of zombies, level up after level up. Game has nothing much to it, lacks any kind of story or character, also it is not very polished, zombie animations seem clunky. Honestly, lately there have been many other zombie or survival games that do survival aspect of the game much better. Only way this game is remotely enjoyable is if you have couple a friends on teamspeak to play together with, then at least you can hear them scream for help...and ignore them.
It's still regularly updated by the developersPOOTDISPENSER | Dec. 27, 2012 | See all POOTDISPENSER's reviews »

Incredibly funWormy | Dec. 26, 2012 | See all Wormy's reviews »
I was surprised how much I enjoyed my time with Killing Floor. Left 4 Dead never really stuck with me and I'm definitely not a fan of the Zombies mode from Call of Duty games. The gameplay isn't too dissimilar but the persistent perks and leveling system is one thing that appeals to me that those other games don't have.
Although I spent most of my time playing single player, you'll definitely need to enlist the help of other players when on higher difficulty levels. If you're not playing as a team you can be overwhelmed by a swarm of zeds in seconds.
One thing lets the game down is how it looks. At times it can feel like a mod and the menus are awful and clunky.

A basic 6 person coop survival game.
This game is best played with friends as you can endless hours of fun and mayhem. The sounds of shots from and your gun hitting the zed are truly amazing.
The game is constantly updated with endless choice of maps from the steam workshop so you can choose maps you want to download. The game also has special community events which can unlock special bonuses for you.
The graphics aren't the best as the game has came out 3 years ago but still very fun to play,
Tripwire again has made another fun fps game for us

It's like Black Ops zombies but much more strategy based. There are plenty of guns to choose from as well as 6 different classes to build upon.
It's annoying how you can't jump over small objects and there's only a few voice dialogues. Plus there's no running (but that's not really a problem).
All the achievements are based on beating levels on specific difficulties.
Killing Floor is worth every pennyDant96 | Dec. 18, 2012 | See all Dant96's reviews »
Killing Floor is a fantastic game if you are familiar with games like Left 4 Dead . Killing Floor gives you and 5 other friends to survive progressively harder waves of Zeds (an experiment gone wrong). The Zeds come in all shapes and size from small crawlers to huge Fleshpounds with two drills on its arm and a really bad temper. This game also allows you to pick a class that suits your play style and get discounts on weapons that are specific to that class. One bad thing for me is that Zed time (the slow motion maniac that activates once a good shot is performed and effects all players games) can get quite annoying when you are in the middle of things. Overall this game is fantastic and a definite must get for all Zombie lovers.
Fantastic Horror gamejack11101 | Dec. 16, 2012 | See all jack11101's reviews »
Although the concept isn't new, Killing Floor is a perfect example of a good wave based zombies game. You can play single player or online and face increasingly difficult waves of enemies. The final wave (11,) you face the patriarch (Basically the boss.) There are tons of maps/items and you can download more through the Killing Floor Workshop on steam. A must for horror fans!
Simple but addictive.archisbhatt | Dec. 12, 2012 | See all archisbhatt's reviews »
Tremendous gore is one thing any gamer would ask for when it comes to shoot em up games. And this game doesn't disappoint!
The logic behind the game is pretty straightforward: You are pitted against waves of mutated zeds/creatures and all you have to do is kill them. In the end of every wave you get to buy new weapons or perhaps replenish your existing one's. So the actual feel of this game would remind you very much of Left 4 Dead and Counter-Strike.
However this game was derived from a mod. So if you have played the UT2004 mod (Of the same name), you might think this should be cheaper or free to play. But for the effort put by Tripwire in this game, and the events they organize every year - You will get more than your money's worth.
The multiplayer component doesn't dissapoint - There are always a good number of servers online with players in them. And don't expect this to die anytime soon since TripWire is doing their job in keeping the game alive.
Killing Floor Reviewcarlyle | Dec. 9, 2012 | See all carlyle's reviews »
Survival horror co-op (like L4D) that can be played both online and single player. In the game, a group of six soldiers should proceed along the various areas of defeating waves of monsters, until you reach the "Patriarch", the final boss. Unlike L4D in the various areas will not have to kill zombies, but rather question of monsters derived from a secret government program to create clones monstrous soldiers. Every game is marked by successive waves of monsters screaming and limping, with a counter in plain view that informs players of the remaining number in the attack today. At the end of each one, you have one minute of time to make the supply of arms and ammunition reaching the merchant in the area to provide supplies. The element "persistent" is the experience gained in the six different 'perk' - benefits - (leading to specialization of Commando, Doctor, Support, Berserker, Firebug and Sharpshooter) that can be cultivated by the characters.
Amazing game, simply!Darder | Dec. 9, 2012 | See all Darder's reviews »
Replayability on this game is very high. You will always want to gather up friends and play a few games of this FPS. Shooting specimens never gets old with the large arsenal of weapons that are at your disposition, the multiple perks that you can XP up and use for an advantage on the field, and the very large amount of maps.
If you want to be fancy, you can unlock alot of different characters which will just make you look even more badass as you fight through the hordes!
After purchasing that game in its early stages, I played it alot and still do. You are gonna love this game, just give it a chance!

Unbelievably fun game with serious longevityzhuwa | Nov. 12, 2012 | See all zhuwa's reviews »
Killing floor is a cooperative survival first person shooter where you basically fight off wave after wave of a variety of enemies. This game is for FPS lovers who enjoy fighting against lots of enemies with other players or simply enjoy a challenging game.
To me, the main beauty of this game is the longevity and the variety. Free new content is released periodically (even 3 years after release!) that add to the already overflowing content. There are lots of maps, each with characteristic layouts. Different difficulty levels that not only throw more and tougher enemies at you, but also change the pace of the game. You can also play as different classes which each plays quite differently. In addition, there are many achievements that encourage you pull off some stunts (like beat a very tough enemy with a very weak weapon). Unlike many other games, there are still many active servers with players new and old, so you can jump right in.
I have played the game for over 250 hours already over the past 2 years and it still feels fresh. If you are still on the fence about it, wait for a discount. But why wait when there’s so much fun to be had now and even more fun to be had in the future?
Amazing, a true co-op survival gamebrandonl | Oct. 25, 2012 | See all brandonl's reviews »
6 people work together, with 6 classes who each has their respective usefulness. Each zombie type has a class their weak against to help promote teamwork. Tons of official levels, even more community-made levels. This game will take a very long time to get bored of.
A lot of content thanks to users.DukePaul | Oct. 22, 2012 | See all DukePaul's reviews »
The best thing of Killing Floor is the content made by the users, with a lot of custom maps that you can download ingame for free, you can find things like the mansion from Residetn Evil or a Super Mario Bros Level, it is really fun kill these zombies/infected in original enviroments.
Also the game has a great cooperative mode for 6 players so if you have a bunch of friends it is the best choice to play.
The gameplay is very simple, waves of monsters, kill them and between waves you have free time to go to the shop and buy new weapons and ammo, after the last wave a boss appears which is very difficult.
Maybe you are thinking this gameplay can be repetitive but it is not because of the class system and perks, you can level up your class to get more perks like more damage from guns, more health, faster movement etc, it takes a lot of hours but it gives the game replay value.
If you are looking for a game based on survival mode, (waves of enemies) buy this.
A great co-op game.Xgoesrawr | Sept. 6, 2012 | See all Xgoesrawr's reviews »
When it comes to co-op games this is one of the best I've ever played.
The perk leveling system kept me busy for a long time. There is a lot of maps in this game and the class system is well done. As much as I've played this game the voice acting never gets old.
The community is pretty friendly however I wouldn't recommend jumping into the hardest difficulties right away because the higher your perk level is the more damage you do and gain a better discount on weapons.
And best of all they still update this game with new content.
I really recommend this game.
Bloody hell!Raoin | Sept. 3, 2012 | See all Raoin's reviews »
When I discovered Killing Floor I thought it was a rip-off version of one of the tons of zombie games that already exist. I was deeply wrong. Killing floor is really awesome and unique. The system of perks is totally satisfatory and, indeed, quite challenging to level up. The gameplay itself it really fun; it's pure team work. Also, the difficulty system is quite well designed; really improves the challenge and forces the players to change its strategy. Finally, about the developers: they are dedicated and keep the game with new updates and DLCs (character packs mostly). The veredict is that Killing Floor, definitely, worth it. What are you waiting for? Try it now!

Killing Floor is first person coop game. The rules are easy, you must survive using your equipment bought on shop. You are one of survivors who must defend yourself from horde of ZED's. The game is set to cooperative mode. Killing ZED's with your friends never get you bored. Every wave Zed's are more and they are more powerful. There is seven types of Zed's: The crawler, The Siren, The Husk, The Gorefast, The Scrake and the most powerful ones the Fleshpound and the Boss Patriarch. There is also ton of content for the game released for free! Killing Floor is the best coop game in steam in my opinion!
Awesome game, fantastic developersCooberstooge | Aug. 19, 2012 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »
You can't go wrong with Killing Floor, honestly. The community is absolutely massive, the game runs and plays great, and the developers are quite possibly the best on steam.
Tons of free content keep the game fresh, and any bugs present on release were ironed out eons ago. Team play is key in this title, and working together always makes the game more fun. You can go it alone, but you'll probably die pretty quick.
Graphically, the game looks good for its age, and runs better simply because the engine is a little antiquated. Gameplay is nice and fast, with the different weapons all easily recognisable by their physical and audible presence. Sound is top-notch, and you'll often find yourself glancing behind you because something's back there, but far enough away you can't see it yet.
Definitely recommend this, and all of Tripwire's other titles. They're different, run great, and have tons of after-sale support.

When you've got a much more fun (and challenging) horde mode game right here! The "specimens" you engage are quite ugly and unique. The waves are generated not by the wave number you're on, but how many players you have. Having that feeling of being able to be overwhelmed early on is actually a lot more fun than it sounds! Tripwire did a great job in creating a fun co-op survival/horde game here. Tons of content and the ability to play user generated content adds to the replay value. Grab some friends. Grab some guns. Have some fun!

Nothing even comes close to this game aside from L4D2 in the co-op genre and I have almost all great co-op games on my Steam account already.
The classes make this game unique in that everyone has a role to play and your team needs to have a set of various classes to survive to the end.
The leveling up makes you come back for more. The map list is huge and you never get bored easily.

Out of my time playing video games, I've never seen developers be so dedicated to making their players happy.
Killing floor was a modifcation for the unreal engine a while back, and was made into a game as retail version! this game right now
There is lots of GUNS, maps, 7 perks, 5 difficultys. You may not think that it's hard. But trust me, Try beating a hell on earth solo and tell me it's not hard.
The developers make their players happy, As I said before. They are extremely dedicated to making the players happy. The only costs for the game is:
The full game The DLC character packs Optional
So basicly, it's a one time buy unless your looking at getting some of the character packs.
So, All in all. This game is worth buying. Amazing game.
My Hero!Moneyman | Aug. 9, 2012 | See all Moneyman's reviews »
I bought this game on release and have never looked back. Okay maybe a few times when it went on sale for 5$, but if I compare the game I bought for a few years ago, then it´s hard to see the exact resemblance. Tripwire have released so much new and free content, (and remade the menus so it´s even harder to see the original game) that it´s unbelivable. I would like to have them in the guinness world record, for best developer.
In the beging there were not much availabilty of weapons, but after a few years there´s more than I can ever use. Dozens of new maps released yearly, and a mod tool, released to the community, so there´s a lot of community made maps, to make the game never end. They even celebrates the big festivals, where they dress up all the "zombies" to get you in the spirital mood.
If you like shooters, especially co-op (since the game isn´t made playing single, it´s possible, but it plays best with other people, random or friends) then this is the game you have to buy, even if you only are gonna buy one game this year.
Underrated by CriticsMikester7 | Aug. 8, 2012 | See all Mikester7's reviews »
To start off, the only thing this game has in common with L4D is the infected "Zombies", other than that it is totally different. Killing Floor on launch had huge potential, but was quite a skeleton of a game, with not much content and a few maps so I can understand the ratings. Tripwire however picked this game up to one of the best games on Steam by adding a huge amount of free content, something that most companies CANNOT boast. Everyone should buy this game just off the fact that they fleshed out the game four-fold FOR FREE. It features a heap of weapons, plenty of perks and a massive range of maps as well as community made map servers. The amount of difficulties in the game allows it to go up to stupidly hard heights for those who like it. There is also a massive amount of Steam achievements too so make sure you pick this game up and have a go. Overall, don't be stupid and compare this game to L4D
One of my favorite games on steam.Epic_Kitten | Aug. 6, 2012 | See all Epic_Kitten's reviews »
This is killing floor. A zombie shooter, or specimen shooter, With mods, custom maps, Normal maps that are beautiful. West London, Manor, Water Works, and so many more. Also, the developers, Tripwire interactive have this game normally going on sale. Every map and new update with guns are absolutely free. The character packs, however. Are not free. And costs 2 dollars. 5 dollars for the special Harold Lott character.
The game has lots of guns. From shotguns to melee's, To assault rifles and explosives, Your team will find yourself armored well and struggling to survive againest the zombies.
There are certain kinds of zombies. Clot: Which is the weakest one. But it can garb you, Which can kill you from hoards chasing you.
The crawler: The most annoying one. A bug like specimen that only crawls and when it get's close, it lunges at it's target, Does not do alot of damage though.
The husk: Not too hard to kill. But it's husk cannon does a LOT of damage, So be sure to take those out.
The siren: She can't attack, charge, or anything. The only thing she does it scream. And her screams HURT. So be sure to shove a bullet down her throat!
The Gore Fast: Zombies that rush at you with swords on their arms, and do a LOT of damage.
The Scrake. A powerful zombie that has a chainsaw to attack, When it's at half health, it will rush at it's target and slice away.
The Flesh Pound: The most difficult one to kill. Get's angry very easily. Has a lot of health, and can do a lot of damage.
The boss: The Patriach. The creator of all of the specimens. Has rockets, a chaingun. And can go invisible when he has to health, Dangerous up close too! Can wipe out an entire squad no matter what weapons you have.
So what are you waiting for? Get your 20 dollars and buy this game!
Great zombie gamexgatto | Aug. 3, 2012 | See all xgatto's reviews »
Amaizing zombie killing game. Most people would compare it to left 4 dead on a first look, but its way more arcade'ish than l4d. The game only mode is surviving waves on maps in the different difficulties. You can play either alone or cooperatively, coop of course is more fun and easy. So you select a server, enter and the game begins. You spawn on wave 1, and your only goal is to kill every single zombie in every wave, and survive the amount of waves needed, which is configurable by the server. In between every wave of zombie killing, you'll have a small time to shop, with the money you got from killing zombies. You'll buy weapons, ammo, protection, grenades within this time limit, and the next wave will begin. There's also specialitations, or classes, one specialized with shotguns, or with medi-guns, etc.. And for every class you'll have to level by doing specific things, like killing 10 zombies with shotgun, or heal 100 allies.
Simple, short, fun, i'd recommend it if you have friends to play with, since there's where the fun is.
Great Devs, Great GameUltraJake | July 27, 2012 | See all UltraJake's reviews »
I would like to start out by saying that while the game itself isn't perfect, it makes up for this in sheer amounts of content and personality. As players around you toss Dosh about, you'll be defending yourself against waves of infected enemies. Their abilities range quite a bit, from jumping spider-men to guys armed with chainsaws, to a boss with a gatling gun who can turn invisible. Playing with 5 other people, it should be noted that the game is not easy. If you don't watch your back, you can quickly be trapped and hacked at. Aim for the head if you want to live. The guns feel great, and if you do something impressive enough, you might get a short slow-mo sequence. This feels cheesy at first (and it is) but it's quite helpful. On holidays and other events, the devs add new maps, new weapons, and reskin all of the monsters in an unusual and often humorous way. All for free. Tripwire is great.

Killing Floor has provided my friends and I with hundreds of hours worth of fun. Although every level has the same basic premise, to survive harder and harder waves of monsters in a static level, it's still a different experience every time. There are very few negatives to this game, and the company releases new content for free on a fairly regular basis. Pick it up, it's worth the price!
Tons of Content - Decent GameplayROKET | July 3, 2012 | See all ROKET's reviews »
This game is better than Left4Dead when it comes to sheer content and some gameplay mechanics. I liked Left4Dead - dont get me wrong - but it wasnt a game that could provide long term play.
Killing Floor provides tons of free content such as maps, new weapons and mods and paid DLCs and gives a player tons of gameplay through a very active and strong player base.
Gameplay is solid in this game though there are a few clunky features such as movement and interface that hamper some of the experience.
Visually the game is slightly bland but can be very detailed and pleasing. I do feel as though the models and animations could have been less rigid. Some of the perspectives were also off.
This game is also very highly multiplayer focused with hundreds of servers and thousands of players. Theres always something to do. You CAN go offline and play with bots but thats just lame. Haha.
Overall - I recommend this if you're burnt out on L4D. Its a good game and is constantly and consistently support by both Tripwire and its community.

Killing Floor is a co-op survival shooter set in the England where the players must kill waves of "Specimens", zombie-like monsters of various kids, like the speedy Arachnids and Stalkers and the tough slabs of flesh and steel called Fleshpounds. Each Specimen killed give some money to buy weapons and other accesories before the start of the next wave. There are perks too, that can be leveled using specific weapons.
This game is perfect for some co-op fun with your friends and runs fine on older machines, despite having loads of enemies on screen sometimes.

Unlike some zombie-shooting game, this game actually promotes co-op. It has classes, zombies that should be killed with different weapons (dont just mindlessly shoot at it), lots of difficulties, many official maps. Joining a server with a custom map downloads it automatically, and there's tons of those. If you enjoy the gameplay, this game may never get old.

As with normal survival games, difficulty ramps up on later waves in the game, and depending on the difficulty setting itself, it can get quite ridiculous.
The class system is also a nice touch. Each class has their own special abilities and such, which gives them the edge over some, but still disadvantages. Think of it as Rock-Paper-Scissors.
The game also has a nice leveling system, where for doing certain actions for certain classes (such as healing teammates, will get you medic exp) will level you up. A nice addition is the fact that you don't need to play as a certain class specifically to level it up. Headshots level up a class called 'Sharpshooter' and any headshots with any class will count towards that class.
Enemies are diverse. Each enemy has different abilities, which different classes can counter. Which makes teamwork a good call, but not completely necessary.
Graphics-wise, it's quite average for a 2009 game, but it makes it easier for those with low-end PCs.
All in all it's a very fun game, and it's worth the money you get from it.
Not Bad!meiji | Nov. 20, 2011 | See all meiji's reviews »
Zombies. Always interesting. This is a great game to play with friends especially because the higher difficulties require a tremendous amount of teamwork. You could spend hours playing this game enjoying all the mods and unique weapons. The only tragic thing is the developers hardly update the game and it becomes repetitive after some time.
Overall: it's worth the money if you have time to kill.
Fun but brainless shooter.xboxer | Nov. 11, 2011 | See all xboxer's reviews »
Killing Floor is a zombie game. A zombie survival game.
I've had 20 hours in this game and the only thing I've done is surviving multiple hordes of zombies with variable difficulty.
There are several character classes you can choose from with a levelling up system to make it more powerful and obtain weapons at cheaper prices.
This isn't a bad game. But neither is it overly interesting like some other games in this genre.
But it is a really fun and mindless shooter where you can just go in and blast away at zombies for a round or two with your friends.
By the way, the zombies in KF are called Specimens.

Killing Floor with it's various classes and difficulties provides players with endless hours of fun. I've played around 200 hrs, while my brother plays it 24/7 and has clocked up over 2,000hrs! With me I tend to get bored of any game after playing it around 2hrs, but with Killing Floor I can play almost all day. I find shooting zombies heads of (especially in slow motion) very satisfying and usually go Commando. I recommend this game for any Zombie game lovers or anyone who like First Person Shooters in general as you are guaranteed to love it. Tripwire did a good job updating it for over 2 years, though have seemed to have slowed down and only doing holiday event updates (which are extremely fun), which is a tad annoying for older players who would like to see some glitches and game crashes fixed. It also has extremely good graphics, especially for a game running on UT2004's engine, not even my bro's new computer can max it out!
Not a Left 4 Dead Clone. Tower Defense, Zombie Edition.emwearz | Sept. 20, 2011 | See all emwearz's reviews »
Leading up to the release of Killing Floor, there was quite a lot of people slamming the game for being a Left 4 Dead rip off, this could not be further from the truth.
Sure both games feature Zombies, but what game doesn't lately? Killing Floor at its heart is a Tower Defense game, in which you (and your Co-Op friends) will have to hold back wave after wave of Zombies and freaks while, using strategy such as welding doors closed and choosing which class to play as, while spending money to upgrade your weapons, stay alive long enough to play the boss of that level.
Killing Floor is not only a fun shooter, but also a great Tower Defense game.
How long can you survive?
A mediocre zombie gameFreeMan85 | Sept. 19, 2011 | See all FreeMan85's reviews »
One of my friend gaved me a guest pass, so I tried the game. Well, I have to say I disappointed. It's not like Left 4 Dead. I say that because the only zombie game I like is L4D. So you can choose from different characters, looks differently, but I don't feel their characters very well. When you drop-in your first game you've only have a pistol and knife. Then you earn cash to buy new stuff, weapons, bombs, etc. It's very costumizable. Armorjacket, dual pistols, granate you also must buy ammo. Why I don't liked the cause this: there's a medium size map - post-apocalyptic type, of course - then the zombies came in waves. After you finished the wave the shop is open, where you can buy new stuff. How many cash you earn is depending on difficulty and how many zombies you killed. Yeah, the zombies... looks horrible, and I say it in the bad way. They ugly, surreal and... just a bad art design. I know, they zombies, but not the looks, the concept disturbs me. The graphic is good, uses Unreal 2 or 2.5 - I think the same engine like BioShock uses, just minus DX10. Very good shadows, effects, everything. The sounds good and the voice-acting is very british! :)
Well, if you a zombie fan surly you gonna like it. It's a good zombie killer game with many DLC, updates and extensions. A well supported game by devs. And doesn't need a strong PC to run.
Worth it!STJ | Sept. 18, 2011 | See all STJ's reviews »
First Impression: I honestly can't say that I have put many hours into it,but it's an amazing game,despite what people might say about the graphics or engine...
Game: Is not the slightest bit forgiving, so if you are going to play it, make sure you adjust the difficulty accordingly, since it's brutal if your looking at one direction for more then 5 seconds...The game itself has a wide choice of guns, accordingly to several Perks you can choose to level, of course depending on perk you will do better with certain weapons, so make sure you want to play what you picked... Maps are well made and the strategic welding of doors, honestly kind of under appreciated.. Oh and theres different types of Mutants!
Conclusion: Worth buying,however try to have some friends with you on that one,because it's more enjoyable with people you can actually rage at!That's about it,Good Hunting!
One of the Best Coop-Zoimbies game :Dkalil | Sept. 15, 2011 | See all kalil's reviews »
Well for me it is an excellent game by watching everything that happened this game, even that does not have too much history is quite addictive and it is always also update everyone says this game is a copy of L4D. If so, the l4d would be a copy of it. This game went on sale in 2005-2006 in mid-summer that year specifically, in the charts at that time were excellent. I do not think he changed an graphics engine that many players today could not keep playing and would argue too much. If we compare this game l4d is 1000 times the cupbearer, each character that fulfills its function as a specialty, some have mines, others burned, the other espadazos hits as you can literally stand over tanking, the medical cure. etc .... . I want good to get that old that is the game and to continue selling copies in an excellent game for people who do not like reading a great story, preferring to spend more waves of zombies to kill, even in the killing zombies is quite monotone, with rewards perks or subclass. If we compare the versus mode, this game has no versus mode, there is no possibility marrow to play this game like game mode. l4d however the beats on it. I prefer this game to play with friends co-operatives, but if you want to be a zombie, play games etc. .... The l4d wins.
Excellent Co-op mayhem!Baha | Sept. 15, 2011 | See all Baha's reviews »
Tripwire Entertainment released Killing Floor back in 2009 and since then have provided the community with not only content packs with new weapons, maps and a higher level cap but even going as far as holding special events. As of this point, Killing Floor is a content rich game with an active community. The comparison to the Left 4 Dead series is not unexpected, they're both fps games with "zombies" or zeds/mutants but the comparison ends there once you get into the details. Killing Floor is a slower game but with a gradual difficulty curve. Maps are not linear but rather sandbox/open world in that you'll find yourself travelling across the map not only during waves but also to get to one of the may trader locations in each map. So while you may think you've found the perfect spot to hunker down and hold off the waves of Zeds, you'll find yourself scrambling to get to the trader and back before the next wave arrives. This management of time and resources (saving up for weapons in a counter-strikesque way) makes this game less about reflexes and twitch and more about strategy and planning. The different classes allow for various play styles (healing, melee, sniping, setting things on fire, blowing things up, etc) but they really determine how well you will fare against the tougher waves near the end. All of this culminating with a boss fight that will require the efforts of the entire team in order to survive. With six player co-op and a nice assortment of classes/unlocks, it really is hard not to recommend this for anybody seeking a challenge or co-operative fps.
Awesome gamevigotski | Sept. 14, 2011 | See all vigotski's reviews »
The best of zombie shooter games. The best of survival co-op games.
All the classes are well-balanced and are all necessary for the players to have a succesful game. You'll need a good strategy to survive. You'll need to have a good knowledge of the maps and an even better knowledge of which are the best classes for each wave and situations.
Killing Floor is much fun, although it can be very frustrating sometimes, like when you're near the last wave (or even on it) and all your team members die.
This one is a must-buy, so "grab it while you can!"
One of the most under rated games on PClemilano | Sept. 14, 2011 | See all lemilano's reviews »
This is the game what you can't feel without trying to play it. It doesn't look that good, graphics are oldish and engine doesn't have that good physics. The game it self is very fun and entertaining. If you work as a team you can win even Hell on Earth matches.
There is plenty of good weapons from katanas to shootguns, rifles etc. Everyone can find a right weapon to use.
Probably the best thing about this zombie game is that it is not too fast like L4D-series. EG. I didn't liked L4D2 at all and this game still rocks.
Brilliant With FriendsMondu | Sept. 14, 2011 | See all Mondu's reviews »
Originally, I bought this on Steam during one of the indie bundle packs. It was a game I wasn't very interested in but I had heard good things about it, and soon after I had played I could see where the praise was coming from. The game itself is quite limited with only one game mode - waves of monsters. But it can keep you playing for hours at a time and with friends the experience is even more enjoyable.
The guns feel and work brilliantly (grenades are another story however) and you will be able to distinguish between each unique enemy in no time, each with their own special abilities. The graphics aren't great but this is forgiven as it's originally a mod and the fast-paced gameplay makes up for this fact. With several difficulties the challenge can appeal to any FPS gamer - whether you play FPS games religiously or if you are a beginner.
Definitely worth the purchase but only if you plan to play with friends. Alone the game can be very boring and you will either have to play by yourself or with strangers.
A Great Coop Game For LAN partiesblade416 | Sept. 13, 2011 | See all blade416's reviews »
Killing Floor Review Killing Floor is a cooperative horror survival game, in the first person shooter format. Killing floor plots you against ever increasing hordes of specimens~A laboratory experiment gone horribly wrong. The game offers you 6 different distinct perks. Each one with its own unique abilities. Players can purchase weapons from a local trader in between each round.
Gameplay 12/15 Gameplay is your standard First Person Shooter, nothing to special here, except that everything plays out quite nicely. The only major gripe i had is that there is no major story line, every level boiled down is “kill all specimens” But as long as played in groups, the gameplay is quite enjoyable. Graphics 14/15 The game’s engine is based off the Unreal 2.5 engine, so the visuals are fairly impressive, and the game’s ability to draw the many specimens on the screen fluidly is impressive. The textures look great, and the models are very decent Sound 7/10 Sound is pretty good, though the trader only has a few lines that get played over and over each round, which makes for a repetitive annoying mess. Besides that though, the weapons each have their own unique sound, adding to the game’s atmospheric gameplay. Stability 10/10 Nothing bad here, no glitches or bugs that i noticed, and the game hasn’t ever crashed for me. Controls 10/10 Standard adjustable controls, easy to master, and simple to understand. Replayability 14/20 Each perk has 6 levels, and each level has added bonuses to damage, lowered prices, higher ammo capacities etc. To level up, each perk has specific requirements to level up, so this adds some nice bonuses to playing over and over. The games lack of a story adds to the need for higher perk levels. Multiplayer 18/20 Multiplayer is where the game truly shines, considering that all of the perks can complement each other, building a team of up to 6 people with different perks is some insane fun. Enemie’s numbers are highly increased with the inclusion of more people on each server. An excellent game for LAN parties. Overall Killing floor is a fun game for multiplayer, but it can get boring quickly played solo. 85/100 Highly recommended for LAN parties

This is THE BEST zombie/ZEDS co-op game out there. It needs skill, it needs practice, it needs everything you can think of. Practically every steam user has killing floor. It's amazing, it's fun, it's a blast. Because first off, it's wave based. It sounds boring right? Not! It takes a ton of skills to actually beat it! Sure it's easy in normal/hard/easy. Try sucide/hell on earth difficulties and you'll know: killing floor is no solo game. From being a medic to a berserker, you'll have a lot of roles to play. They're all different and they all fit different roles. Try support for massive AOE damage, or try commando for easy take downs. Medic for healing, DUH! Secondly, the variety among zeds/specimens is insane. From fleshpounds( tank/dps) to simple weak clots. They all have a purpose and a role and all they want to do is eat you. Survive all ten waves? fight the boss? Easy? NO! TEAMWORK is needed! You'll see when you play. Visually speaking, killing floor is a bit aged but it has aged perfectly. It looks and plays perfectly fine! It is still being balanced as well. DLC PROBLEMS? NOPE. Just skins! Content is never charged! So far, tripware has made every content free! amazing! Great game.
Nice co op survival gamechetancs | Sept. 7, 2011 | See all chetancs's reviews »
Killing floor is a fun game to play. The games best feature is multiplayer. I liked the co op survival mode of the game. Single player is not that much good. Still there are more things which will make the player stick to play the game. The game is good one but story of the game is not that good in single player. The graphics in the game is good. In game sounds are good but voice acting in the game is failed. There are total five maps and also have the level editor in the game. The game has some connection issues while playing multiplayer. Other advantage of the game is this that it is steamplay so there are also achievements to unlock. If you ignore some issue in game then it is one must buy game.

Killing Floor is a first person shooter game that is focused primarily on Coop play. Although game can be played in solo mode but the actual fun is to play with friends. Killing Floor relies on a working and collaborating team that has to take down waves after waves of zombies like in a survival mode.
Killing floor is not your average zombie game where we take out zombies without any though. Infact killing floor is far from a mindless shooter. Zombies come in many different types, some are agile and kill you instantly, while others are slow but can take a lot of damage, and still there are those who stun you and take you down from the shadows. Most of them only take a second to kill you if they get close enough. Action here is extremely tense and challenging. And if you don't have a collaborating team, you end up dead pretty fast. After each WAVE that we clear, there is a small 'Preparation' period where we buy guns, Armour and support equipment for the next WAVE. The money is earned through killing more zombies. This works exactly like the BUY option in Counter Strike between rounds. The only difference is we can share our money with our team mates. The shop has all sorts of weapons like trusty old Ak47,Magnum or bizarre weapons like a crossbow.
Graphically game is not very attractive as this game started as a mod. So most of the tech feels dated but the artstyle and maps are extremely atmospheric and gore filled. Sound design is also moody and creepy and gets the job done really fine
As the game is mainly COOP based, if you are planning on playing it solo it might disappoint a little, but with friends it an absolute blast. There are tons of official and community maps. Game is regularly updated with newer patches and community events. It is fairly popular game with lots of players playing it almost every time of day. A great game at an affordable price.
